Synthetic Lubricants (PAO, PAG, Esters, Group III) Market - Global Forecast to 2023 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

March 29, 2019

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 29, 2019--The “Synthetic Lubricants Market by Type (PAO, PAG, Esters, Group III), Application (Engine Oil, Hydraulic Fluids, Metalworking Fluids, Compressor Oil, Gear Oil, Refrigeration Oil, Transmission Fluids, Turbine Oil), Region - Global Forecast to 2023” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The synthetic lubricants market size is projected to grow from USD 32.2 billion in 2018 to USD 37.3 billion, by 2023.

The industrial growth in growing regions such as APAC and the Middle East & Africa coupled with rising automation in various end-use industries is expected to drive the demand for synthetic lubricants during the forecast period. However, technological advancements in the automotive industry and rise in demand for alternative fuels act as restraining factors for the growth of the synthetic lubricants market.

The PAO segment is expected to lead the synthetic lubricants market, in terms of volume, during the forecast period.

The PAO segment is expected to lead the synthetic lubricants market, in terms of volume, between 2018 and 2023. The dominance of the PAO segment is owing to its high performance in extreme conditions, high drain interval, better viscosity index, higher shear stability, and chemical resistance. The PAO-based synthetic lubricants can perform at extreme temperatures; and moreover, due to their low volatility, there is reduced oil consumption, oil residue, and deposit formation, which enhance the performance of the equipment or automobile.

The engine oil segment is projected to account for the largest share of the overall synthetic lubricants market, in terms of volume, between 2018 and 2023.

Engine oil is the largest application of synthetic lubricants. The rapid growth of the transportation sector in the developing regions is expected to drive the synthetic lubricants market during the forecast period. The increasing use of eco-labels in most countries of the region, rising demand for fuel-efficient lubricants in the automobile industry, and stringent environmental regulations in various countries are driving the market.

Europe is expected to be the largest synthetic lubricants market during the forecast period, in terms of volume.

Europe is projected to be the largest synthetic lubricants market during the forecast period. Stringent environmental regulations in countries such as France, the Netherlands, Germany, and Norway are driving the market. The demand for synthetic lubricants is expected to increase further owing to the ongoing product developments and widening distribution network. Moreover, the growing consumption of renewable energy is also driving the demand for gear oils and greases in wind turbines in the synthetic lubricants market in the region.
