The global Biolubricants Market is anticipated to rise at a staggering CAGR during the forecast period. Lubricant serves the purpose of lubrication for various mechanical and power-driven components. The conventional lubricant is a form of petroleum-based feedstock that leads in serious environmental impact and disturbs the ecological system. In order, to reduce the dependency, development of sustainable alternatives such as biolubricants serve as a major source of power. Therefore, biolubricants are prepared using sunflower oil, palm oil and coconut oil and animal fats.
Bio-lubricants industry is highly segmented into application and end-use. Application category comprises metalworking fluids, mold release agents, chainsaw oils and hydraulic fluids. End-use category comprises commercial transport, industrial and consumer automobile. Industrial is the largest end use segment due to the massive demand followed by significant R&D activities. However, international political scenarios and fluctuation in ban policies creates sustainable challenges.
Segmentation by source for biolubricant market entails animal fats, edible & non-edible oils. By application, the bio-lubricant industry comprises greases, automobile, metalworking, grease and lubricant. End-user segmentation for bio-lubricants market comprises marine industry, automotive industry, oil & gas and construction.
Geographical segmentation for biolubricants industry comprises North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa. North America and Europe markets are likely to gain a significant market share owing to stringent regulations. High investments and product launches are likely to contribute to the bio-lubricant market developments. In addition, rising use of biolubricants for industries adds more to the contribution.
Asia-Pacific and MEA regions are most likely to deal in a high supply-high demand scenario. Consumer preference for biodegradable oil for industrial end-use is one of the major factor for regional growth.
