The power generation industry is the significant supporter of economic development. Progressions in assembling the products and setting up of various power plants require lubricants for the smooth working of engines. Various sources of power generation, including hydro turbines, wind, and solar generally utilize lubricants, thus driving the market growth.

Key Market Takeaways:

The global lubricants market is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 4.0% over the forecast period (2021-2028). Based on base oil, the global lubricants market is classified into synthetic lubricants, bio-based lubricants and Mineral lubricants and semi-synthetic lubricants. Mineral lubricants is the highest market share segment on the lubricants market owing to its cost and availability.

Lubricants play a vital role in different industries such as marine and automotive, which help reduce friction and tear of the working parts of machines. Properties of lubricants include corrosion prevention, viscosity index, low freezing point, and high resistivity to oxidation. They extend the shelf-life of mechanical parts, providing higher effectiveness. Lubricants are utilized to ensure smooth operation of mechanical parts and eliminate any residues deposited on these parts. Key lubricants items include metalworking liquids, process oils, transformer oils, industrial lubes and lubricants, and industrial oils.

Competitive Landscape:

Major players operating in the global lubricants market include ExxonMobil Corp., Pennzoil, Quaker Chemical Corp., Royal Dutch Shell Co, British Petroleum, Chevron Corp., Total S.A, JX Nippon Oil & Energy Corp., Lukoil, and Philips 66 Company.

Mergers and acquisitions, strategic collaborations, new product launches, and business expansions are the key strategies adopted by key players to retain their market share. For instance, in 2019, Shell, one of the most diversified international oil companies, introduced Shell Omala S5 Wind 320 and carbon-neutral wind turbine oil. Shell has increased its efforts to make an environment-friendly product portfolio. The new oil comes in market with a 10-year warranty, helping in diminishing costly breakdowns and wear protection. Also, in 2019, Total SA, an oil & gas company, launched a range of reused hydraulic fluids for various industrial applications. These new ranges of lubricants are produced using regenerating oil, reducing the ecological footprint of production that adds to the goals of a circular economy.
