Global Bio-Lubricants Market to Reach US$ 3.2 Billion by 2032, Fostered by Growing Awareness Regarding Environmental Pollution

April 03, 2023 | Chemical & Materials

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Bio-Lubricants Market Report by Base Oil Type (Vegetable Oils, Animal Fats), Application (Hydraulic Fluids, Metalworking Fluids, Chainsaw Oils, Mold Release Agents, Two-Cycle Engine Oils, Gear Oils and Greases, and Others), End Use Industry (Power Generation, Automotive, Heavy Equipment, Food & Beverage, Metallurgy & Metalworking, Chemical Manufacturing, and Others), and Region 2024-2032," the global bio-lubricants market size reached US$ 2.3 Billion in 2023. Bio-lubricants are emollients that are derived from natural sources, such as animal fats, vegetable oils and other biodegradable resources. They are an alternative to traditional petroleum-based lubricants and are non-toxic, renewable, biodegradable, and environment-friendly in nature and are used to reduce friction between surfaces. They offer several advantages, including better lubrication properties, improved energy efficiency, and increased equipment durability. They also produce fewer harmful emissions and aid in reducing air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. They are available in different types and categories, depending on their source and composition, such as vegetable oil-based lubricants, animal fat-based lubricants, and synthetic esters. As a result, they are adopted in a wide range of applications, from automotive and industrial machinery to agricultural equipment and marine applications. They are also used in environmentally sensitive areas, such as national parks and nature reserves.

Global Bio-Lubricants Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by the growing awareness regarding environmental pollution and depleting crude oil reserves. Additionally, the governments of various countries are implementing stringent environmental regulations to reduce carbon emissions, thereby increasing the demand for bio-lubricants in diverse applications. Moreover, the growing demand for lubricants with superior product characteristics, such as constant viscosity, high flash points, biodegradability, and lower emission levels, are contributing to the product application in various industrial applications, thus providing a boost to the market. Apart from this, the depletion of crude oil reserves across the globe, in confluence with the inflating crude oil prices, is fuelling the demand for bio-based materials. Furthermore, several major companies are heavily investing in extensive research and development activities to improve the physicochemical properties of bio-based lubricants, which is creating a positive market outlook. Besides, the increasing use of these lubricants in transportation and manufacturing is acting as another growth-inducing factor. In line with this, the continuous expansion of the automotive sector is fuelling the consumption of sustainable products that contribute to higher fuel efficiency and lower carbon emissions from vehicles. Other factors, such as continuous technological innovations and the rising environmental concerns, are projected to propel the market further. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 3.2 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 3.4% during 2024-2032.
