Drivers and Constraints-
Increase in demand for synthetic lubricants to fuel market growth
Industrial activities require large amounts of energy and result in high operating costs. Rising energy costs have forced industries to take measures to reduce operating costs and save energy. Poor lubrication of engine parts causes more friction, which leads to more fuel consumption, emissions and pollution. A premium lubricant can help minimize friction and improve machine efficiency. Hence, the growing demand for enhanced lubricants from the industrial sector is likely to provide impetus for the growth of the global lubricants market.
The demand for synthetic lubricants has increased in recent years due to their better efficiency compared to natural mineral oils. Growing industrial growth and expanding automotive industry have high demand for these synthetic lubricants, and the expansion of these end-use industries is likely to propel the growth of the market.
However, the growing demand and adoption of electric vehicles may restrain the market growth in the coming years.
