Global Synthetic Lubricants Market: Overview
Basically, lubricants are substances that are used to reduce the friction amid two sliding or two moving surfaces. The primary objective of the lubricant is to keep aside the two sliding or moving surfaces so as to decrease the destruction of the materials that will happen owing to the friction. Synthetic lubricants compose of thickeners, synthetic base oil, and additives. They provide more advantages when compared to the conventional lubricants that are mineral based. The synthetic lubricants are used in metal stamping and are eco-friendly in nature.
Global Synthetic Lubricants Market: Segmentation
The synthetic lubricants market is segmented globally into its type, application, and regions. On the basis of type, the synthetic lubricants market is categorized into PAO, Group III (Hydro Cracking), esters, and PAG. Based on the application, the global market is segregated into engine oil, industrial, and metalworking fluids. Region-wise, the global synthetic lubricants market is diversified into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World.
Global Synthetic Lubricants Market: Growth Factors
The global synthetic lubricants market will grow tremendously, in the coming years, owing to the increase in the demand for synthetic lubricants from the industrial and automotive sectors. The benefits of synthetic lubricants include excellent thermal stability, good load carrying capacity, wear & tear protection, and low friction which are not present in the conventional lubricants, thus driving the demand of the market. New researches and technologies such as ester-based oils that are fire resistant are used on a large scale in various industries. A number of large-scale OEMs have implemented NSF standard so that PAO food products are utilized in the beverage, food, and nutrition sectors. This in turn will open new opportunities for the synthetic lubricant industry. The key factor that hampers the market growth is high cost of the synthetic fibers as compared to the other mineral counterparts. The other factor that will restrain the market growth is the incompatibility of the PAOs and PAG based oils.
