Lubricants Industry | Forecast 2030

The economic value generated by the lubricants industry was estimated at approximately USD 134.65 billion in 2022. This economic output is an amalgamation of basic lubricant product categories namely, industrial, automotive, marine, and aerospace lubricants.

The global lubricant industry has been witnessing a significant change, particularly in terms of raw materials, owing to the rising demand for bio-based lubricants. Asia Pacific has emerged as one of the largest consumers of lubricants owing to the rapidly growing automotive industry along with industrial development in the region. The most extensively used lubricants in the Asian market include automotive engine oils, greases, and hydraulic fluids. The market in the Asia Pacific has started mirroring the American and European regulatory systems, and countries like Japan and South Korea are thus emphasizing eco-labeled lubricants.

Automotive Lubricants Market Insights

The global automotive lubricants market size was estimated at USD 72.05 billion in 2022 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.5% from 2023 to 2030. Growing demand for high-performance and lightweight vehicles in emerging economies such as India and China along with a shift in consumer preference towards sustainable lubricants is the key factor driving the market growth.


Increasing automotive production coupled with a shift in trend from heavy vehicles to lightweight vehicles is a key driving factor since the latter contributes significantly to weight savings and lower carbon emissions. A 10% reduction in the weight of an automobile results in approximately 5% to 7% fuel savings. In addition, the reduced weight also aids in controlling the emission of CO2 throughout the life cycle of the vehicle. It further helps the overall performance of the vehicle in terms of acceleration and handling. Moreover, the reduction in mass at unhinged points provides for a reduction in noise and vibration, making it a smoother ride. Thus, growing concerns regarding fuel consumption and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are expected to boost the demand for lubricants in commercial as well as passenger vehicles.


Marine Lubricants Market Insights

The global marine lubricants market size was valued at USD 7,395.1 million in 2022 and is anticipated to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.2% from 2023 to 2030. Rising demand for durable products and increasing trade activities, especially in emerging economies of Asia Pacific, are among the key trends escalating market growth. The U.S. is the largest consumer of the product in North America with a revenue share of 70.9% in 2022.


Aerospace Lubricant Market Insights

The global aerospace lubricant market was valued at USD 760.4 million in 2014. Increasing air traffic in both developed as well as developing economies such as U.S., UK, India, and China is expected to drive the aerospace lubricant market over the forecast period.
