Global Synthetic Lubricant Market

Synthetic lubricant is composed of synthetic base oil, thickeners, and additives. Synthetic lubricants are lubricants formulated with base oil coming from the advanced chemical industry like esters, PAO, and PAG, among others. Synthetic lubricant fluids offer excellent lubricating properties like mineral oils but do not have its disadvantages. The synthetic lubricants possess advantages like improved oxidative and thermal stability, superior volatility characteristics, preferred frictional properties, and higher flash point and autoignition temperatures. Rising industrialization coupled with the growing population is projected to promote the application of synthetic lubricants in the automotive industry, thereby, propelling the market growth. The synthetic lubricant in the automotive sector is used in the form of gearbox lubes, diesel engine oils, and transmission oils in commercial passenger vehicles and motorcycles. Additionally, the new technologies such as fire-resistant ester-based oils are used in several industries. Besides this, synthetic lubricants are widely used in the transportation and manufacturing sectors, such as aviation, marine, automotive, food & beverage, metal production, transportation equipment manufacturing, commercial machinery manufacturing, and rubber & plastic industries. Hence, rapid growth in these industries is projected to accelerate the growth of the synthetic lubricant market. But, the rising preference for cheaper alternate mineral oils due to the high cost of these lubricants is likely to hamper the market growth over the forecast period. However, the application of synthetic lubricants in the food industry is growing rapidly owing to the technological advancements, such as the NSF food lubrication standard set by the major equipment manufacturers. Therefore, this is likely to enhance the synthetic lubricant market growth in the upcoming years as well.

The global synthetic lubricant market is segmented based on type and application. Based on type, the global synthetic lubricant market is segregated into polyalphaolefin, esters, polyalkylene glycol, and others. The polyalphaolefin segment contributed the largest share for the global synthetic lubricant market. Owing to the improved thermal and oxidative stability of the polyalphaolefin it is being used in various applications like metalworking fluids, engine oil, and hydraulic fluids. Besides this, polyalkylene glycol or PAG is expected to grow at the fastest pace during the forecast period. Based on application, the global synthetic lubricant market is classified into the metalworking fluids, hydraulic fluids, transmission fluids, engine oil, compressor oil, refrigeration oil, gear oil, and others. In 2018, the engine oil application segment dominated the global synthetic lubricant market. Rising application of engine oils in the automotive industry is projected to boost the synthetic lubricant market growth.

Geographically, the global synthetic lubricant market is segmented into the Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa. In 2018, Europe dominated the global synthetic lubricant market. The rapidly emerging applications in automotive industry coupled with increasing investment in blending plants for synthetic lubricants is likely to drive the regional market. Moreover, the Asia Pacific anticipates to be the fastest growing regional market owing to the increasing sales of premium vehicles.

Some of the key players operating in the global synthetic lubricant market include Royal Dutch Shell Plc, Castrol, Pennzoil, Total S.A, The Dow Chemical Company, Fuchs Petrolub SE, ExxonMobil Corporation, BP, Lubrizol Corporation, Chevron Corporation Idemitsu Kosan Co. Ltd., and PETRONAS, among others.
