Industrial lubricants reduce friction between objects, regulate temperature, modify surface properties and remove debris. The global industrial lubricants market is estimated to see better profitability and expand at a CAGR of 2.4% during the assessment period of 2017-2022, asserts Market Research Future (MRFR) in an in-depth study. The global industrial lubricants market stood at USD 56.87 Bn in 2016.
Industrial lubricants are used to ensure smooth machinery functioning and reduce maintenance across various industry verticals. Industrial lubricants market is likely to be driven robustly by expansion in key end-use industries such as chemicals manufacturing, food processing, and electronics.
Automotive lubricants account for the majority demand of industrial lubricants market. Expanding automotive industry and an increase in total vehicle population has fostered market growth. Additionally, the burgeoning manufacturing industry driven by heightened demand for manufactured goods has generated high demand for industrial lubricants.
The global industrial lubricants market has been segmented based on type and end user.
By Type, the global industrial lubricants market has been segmented into hydraulic lubricants, gear lubricants, compressor lubricants, metalworking fluids, and others. The hydraulic lubricants segment is dominating the market. Continuous demand from the mining and construction industry due to the cost advantage it provides over other lubricants is driving the growth of the segment. However, due to rising metal consumption in the automotive industry, the metalworking fluids segment is expected to showcase the highest CAGR over the forecast period.
By End User, the global Industrial Lubricants Market has been segmented into automotive, manufacturing, power generation, heavy industries, and others. The automotive segment is leading the market while the power generation segment is expected to showcase the highest CAGR over the forecast period. The growth of the power generation segment can be credited to towering energy demands across the globe.
