Bio Lubricant Market Analysis: Plant Capacity, Production, Operating Efficiency , Demand & Supply, End-User Industries, Distribution Channel, Regional Demand, 2015-2030

Format: Online | Last Updated: Nov 2021

[Online Quarterly Update] Bio Lubricant demand was 4.32 Million Tonnes in 2020 and is forecast to reach 6.06 Million Tonnes by 2030, growing at a healthy CAGR of 3.45% until 2030. Bio lubricant is a bio-based lubricant that is used to enhance machine performance by reducing friction between different mechanical layers. Bio lubricant is based on vegetable oil and animal fat instead of petroleum. It is biodegradable and environment-friendly. It has many application areas, including engine oil, metalworking fluid, transmission, and hydraulic fluid, general industrial oil, gear oil, grease, process oil, and others. Due to its lubricating properties, bio lubricant finds application in various end-use industries including power generation, automotive and transportation, heavy equipment, metallurgy and metalworking, chemical manufacturing, etc. Growing awareness about environment-friendly materials coupled with increasing environmental regulations is expected to drive the demand for bio-lubricants for the forecast period. Additionally, the increasing demand from the automotive industry is also going to fuel the demand for bio-lubricants during the forecast period. 
In 2020, the spread of COVID-19 in major global economies caused nationwide lockdowns, which had an impact on several industries. Automotive was among the most affected industries during the pandemic. This had an impact on the demand for bio lubricant for the first half of 2020. The demand for bio lubricant fell during the coronavirus pandemic. Due to the negative effect on the market, postponement or extension of regulations regarding conventional lubricants is also possible. Also, the consistent inflow of private funding and investment has been discontinued due to the lockdown. 
 Region-wise, the Asia Pacific region holds the major share of global demand for bio-lubricants due to the increasing demand of application industries such as automotive and power generation. Moreover, increasing awareness about bio-lubricants and their biodegradable environment-friendly nature in economies like India and China coupled with the growing number of industries using bio lubricant derivatives is another factor influencing demand growth in the Asia Pacific region. 
Major players for bio lubricant globally include Axel Christiernsson, BP PLC, Chevron Corporation, Cortec Corporation, ExxonMobil Corporation, Kluber Lubrication, Novvi LLC, Panolin Ag, Royal Dutch Shell PLC, Repsol, Bechem, Cargill, Total, FUCHS, Emery Oleochemicals.
