Industrial Lubricants Market by Base oil (Mineral Oil, Synthetic Oil, Bio-based Oil), Product Type (Hydraulic Fluid, Metalworking Fluid), End-use Industry (Construction, Metal & Mining, Power Generation, Food Processing), Region

The global industrial lubricants market size is projected to reach USD 73.3 billion by 2024 from USD 62.8 billion in 2019, at a CAGR of 3.1%, during the forecast period. The growing demand for industrial lubricants in countries such as China, India, Japan, and South Korea from the construction, metal & mining, power generation, cement production, and automotive industries is expected to fuel the growth of the industrial lubricants market in the region. The market is evolving, with major players playing a crucial role in the development of new and advanced products.

Lubrication is an important process for an industry. It helps to reduce the friction between moving parts or surfaces to enhance the efficiency of machines. Industrial lubricants are manufactured using base oil, categorized as mineral oil, synthetic oil, and bio-based oil. Mineral oil and synthetic oil are sourced from Petroleum crude, and bio-based oils are sourced from vegetable oil. The major factors driving the industrial lubricants market are massive industrialization, the increasing disposable income, and rapid urbanization in emerging countries.

Based on base oil, the industrial lubricants market is segmented into mineral oil, synthetic oil, and bio-based oil. The synthetic oil segment is expected to witness the highest growth between 2019 and 2024. Synthetic-oil based industrial lubricants can be customized according to the requirement so that it can have a controlled molecular structure with predictable properties. Furthermore, they have better properties than mineral oil-based industrial lubricants.

Based on product type, the industrial lubricants market is segmented into hydraulic fluid, metalworking fluid, gear oil, compressor oil, grease, turbine oil, and others. Metalworking fluid is expected to be the fastest-growing segment in terms of both volume and value, from 2019 to 2024. These fluids are crucial to the iron and steel industries along with various metal-bound industries. These fluids help in the reduction of heat, provide lubrication, and remove small metal chips during cutting and grinding of metal pieces. The growing number of end use industries of metalworking fluid is expected to drive its demand in the coming years, which is consequently expected to fuel the growth of the industrial lubricants market.

APAC is expected to account for the largest market share in global industrial lubricants industry during the forecast period, in terms of both volume and value. The increasing population in the region, accompanied by increasing construction spending in the developing markets of China, India, and Indonesia, is projected to make this region an ideal destination for the industrial lubricants industry.
