Grease Additives Market Projected to Reach $627.93 Million by 2028, Driven by Renewable Energy Boom

Dublin, Oct. 10, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Grease Additives Market Forecast to 2028 - Global Analysis by Type and Application" report has been added to's offering.

The global grease additives market is poised for substantial growth, with a projected increase from US$ 481.80 million in 2022 to US$ 627.93 million by 2028. This growth is estimated to register a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 4.5% from 2022 to 2028.

Grease additives play a pivotal role in enhancing grease properties, suppressing undesirable characteristics, and introducing new attributes. These additives encompass corrosion inhibitors, oxidation inhibitors, pressure enhancers, antiwear agents, and more, effectively optimizing grease performance across various industries.

Renewable Energy Industry Fuels Demand

The renewable energy sector, particularly within the power industry, has emerged as a significant consumer of industrial greases. Grease finds extensive application in turbines and transformers within this sector. The surging demand for renewable energy sources has driven a substantial increase in wind turbine installations globally.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) reports that as of 2021, 830 GW of wind capacity had been installed worldwide, with 93% onshore and 7% offshore wind farms. Countries globally are taking measures to boost their renewable energy capacities through wind turbine installations. For instance, the United States added 16,836 MW of wind capacity in 2020, aiming to achieve 20% of its electricity consumption from wind energy by 2030.

The proliferation of wind installations has led to a heightened demand for lubricants, including greases. Wind turbine lubricants play a crucial role in ensuring the reliability and smooth operation of wind farms. Lubrication is vital at multiple points within a wind turbine, including the gearbox, open gear, pitch gear, and pitch bearing. Grease additives such as pressure enhancers, corrosion inhibitors, and oxidation inhibitors contribute to enhanced wind turbine performance. Consequently, the increasing demand for greases in the wind power sector is expected to drive growth in the grease additives market in the coming years.

Diverse Applications

The grease additives market encompasses various applications, including automotive, aerospace, marine, mining, steel mills, construction machinery, and more. The automotive segment held the largest market share in 2022, while the mining segment is projected to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Mining operations require specialized machinery that is exposed to water and contaminants. Airborne dirt can compromise mechanical components and their lubrication, necessitating the use of pressure, antiwear, and anticorrosion additive greases to protect mining equipment.

Regional Insights

Regionally, Asia Pacific (APAC) dominated the market in 2022 and is anticipated to exhibit the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This growth is primarily driven by the automotive, wind energy, marine, aerospace, and construction industries, along with increased grease production in the region.
