Base Oil Market Analysis:

The base oil market is growing steadily as vehicle ownership increases rapidly worldwide. As per industry reports, the U.S noted 3.5% surge in vehicle registrations between 2018 and 2022. 91.7% of the U.S. households had at least 1 vehicle in 2022. Furthermore, as per an article published in the Business Standard in September 2023, the Society of the Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) reported that there was a 34% growth in commercial vehicle sales in 962, 000 units in India, which is an increase by 560,000 units reported in the fiscal year of 2020 in India. Another factor which influences the growth of this market is base oil being a major element for lubricants production that are used in various industries. The base oil market is categorized into five groups based on oil quality. Market profits the most from Group 2nd, 3rd, and 4th base oils since they are of higher quality and consumers favor it for the same.

Base Oil Market Trends:

Consumer Shift to Superior Grade Base Oil

A noticeable switch has been observed among the consumers from Group 1 base oil to Group 2 and 3 base oils. This trend is picking up pace as industries demand higher quality lubricants for processing their products. With strict environmental laws and rising awareness, vehicle owners and industrialists are shifting to superior grade oil. According to the industry reports, Group 2 base oils market value was the highest in 2022, reaching at USD 16.7 billion. As of May 2024, spot prices for Group 2 base oil in U.S. have increased over the last three weeks due to rising demand and tighter supply, especially for low viscosity grades. According to the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers, sales of all vehicles increased from 92.06% in 2019 to 92.72% in 2023. With an increase in vehicle sales, the demand for base oil is rapidly rising.

Increased Demand for Bio-based Base Oils

The increasing demand for bio-based oils is driving market growth as industries shift towards sustainable and environmentally friendly lubricants. These oils reduce dependence on fossil fuels, lower emissions, and offer superior biodegradability, meeting both regulatory requirements and consumer preferences for green products, thus stimulating the base oil market. For instance, polyalkylene glycol (PAG) base oil is emerging as one of the most preferred oils in the base oil market. PAG has a high viscosity index and good low and high temperature abilities that aids in offering a superior performance. It also has environmental benefits as it burns off cleanly, leaving no residue. Some versions of PAG are biodegradable and food grade. In 2023, PAG base oil market was valued USD 13.49 billion and is expected to reach USD 22.97 billion by 2030 with CAGR of 7.9% Currently, North America is considered as the largest market of PAG base oil.

Limited feedstock availability to manufacture virgin oil has driven the industries to use recycled base oil, which is eco-friendly and generates lower carbon emissions during its production.

Latest Industry News:

  • In October 2023, Idemitsu Kosan Co., Ltd, a Japanese lubricant oil company, partnered with Saudi Aramco Base Oil Company Luberef regarding the supply of refined lubricant base oil Group 3, which is environmental-friendly and is used mainly in fuel-efficient engine oils. The MoU signed is aimed at accelerating the long-term procurement of Group 3 base oil for Idemitsu.
  • In May 2024, ExxonMobil announced the acquisition of Pioneer Natural Resources. The combined company’s more than 1.4 million net acres in the Delaware and Midland basins have an estimated 16 billion barrels of oil equivalent resource. ExxonMobil’s Permian production volume will more than double to 1.3 million barrels of oil equivalent per day (MOEBD), based on 2023 volumes, and is expected to increase to approximately 2 MOEBD in 2027, based on initial estimates .
