Global Base Oil Market to Reach US$ 36.7 Million Tons by 2027, Impelled by Rising Manufacturing of Vehicles

Published on Sep 21, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Base Oil Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global base oil market reached a value of US$ 31.2 Million Tons in 2021. Base oil is an essential component in the production of a wide range of lubricants. It is a specialty product that is manufactured in refineries by treating and extracting high-viscosity material from narrow distillation cuts of vacuum resid or gasoil. It is also blended with a thickener or additives that serve as a foundation of the lubricant, which is later used in machinery and engines. It is widely available in multiple forms across the globe that differ on the basis of viscosity index and limitations, volatility, pour and aniline points and hydrolytic, oxidation and thermal stability.     

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Base Oil Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by the growing product demand from the automotive industry. This can be attributed to the increasing manufacturing and selling of vehicles. With the rising adoption of hydraulic oil in automobiles and aircraft for the proper functioning of filtering and cooling systems, this is providing a boost to the demand for base oils across the globe. In line with this, the increasing rates of motorization as a result of the improving road connectivity across the developing economies is creating a positive market outlook. Moreover, the growing utilization of solvent refined oils in marine vehicles that help in enhancing and protecting engines are significantly supporting the product demand on the global level. The market is further driven by extensive research and development (R&D) activities conducted by key players to introduce improved product variants. Other factors, including rapid industrialization and urbanization, the widespread deployment of automation across the industrial sector and continuous expansion of manufacturing units, are also positively influencing the market.
