The global bio-lubricants market grew at a CAGR of around 4% during 2015-2020. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to exhibit moderate growth during 2021-2026. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end use industries. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.
Bio-lubricants are prepared by chemical modification of plant-based oils, such as epoxidation, transesterification and esterification reactions. These lubricants are widely used to reduce friction between different surfaces. As they are non-toxic, eco-friendly, bio-degradable and renewable, bio-lubricants are utilized in heavy machineries, such as railroad flanges, chainsaw bars and two-stroke engines. Besides this, they are required in less quantity during application and offer several advantages over synthetic and mineral oil-based lubricants. At present, technological advancements, along with increasing research and development (R&D) activities by key participants, are creating new avenues for bio-lubricant applications.
Bio-based lubricants are progressively gaining prominence over conventional petroleum-based oils on account of stringent government regulations and the increasing applications in the power generation and manufacturing industries. Moreover, the escalating demand for lubricants with superior product characteristics, such as biodegradability, high flash points, constant viscosity and lower emission levels, is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Apart from this, the depletion of crude oil reserves across the globe, in confluence with the inflating crude oil prices, has considerably raised the demand for bio?based materials. Other factors such as the growing R&D initiatives, technological innovations, increasing environmental concerns and stringent government regulations on the usage of synthetic lubricants are expected to drive the market in the coming years.
