Global Marine Grease Market to Reach US$ 464.1 Million by 2027, Bolstered by Significant Growth in Shipping Industry

Published on Oct 12, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Marine Grease Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global marine grease market reached a size of US$ 359.6 Million in 2021. Marine grease is a jelly or semisolid lubricant used in ships to protect ferrous and non-ferrous metals from rust, corrosion, and pitting. It is manufactured using synthetic oils, minerals, and phenolic resins and contains additives, such as polymers, anti-wear agents, and tackifiers. Marine grease is widely used in trailer wheel bearings, steering assemblies, deck equipment, slides, hinges, submerged pumps, offshore drilling equipment, and open gear operations. It provides enhanced performance under extreme conditions due to its high thermal stability, enhanced load-bearing capacity, longer lubrication intervals, mechanical stability, and a wider temperature range. Marine grease also provides excellent fresh and saltwater corrosion protection, impressive aging and sheer stability, and extreme pressure properties.

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.

Marine Grease Market Trends:

The significant growth in the shipping industry due to increasing international trade activities and the development of new waterways is one of the key factors driving the market growth. Marine grease is widely used in bulk carriers, cargo ships, and oil tankers for maintaining the efficiency of vessels by reducing the friction between mechanical components, providing sealing properties, improving the machinery service life, and optimizing maintenance. In line with this, the implementation of various government initiatives to strengthen the expansion of maritime trade by increasing capacity use, improving port efficiency, and augmenting connectivity are acting as another growth-inducing factor. Furthermore, the widespread product utilization in navy ships and submarines for outboard equipment, hydraulic systems, engines, and propellers due to the growing naval defense budgets is providing an impetus to the market growth. Apart from this, the introduction of bio-based grease manufactured from sustainable feedstock, such as plant-based oils and sugars that reduce volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions and toxicity of gases, is creating a positive outlook for the market. Moreover, the widespread product adoption due to the rapid proliferation of ships for transportation, exploration, and leisure activities is providing a considerable boost to the market growth. Other factors, including increasing industrialization and extensive research and development (R&D) activities toward decreasing product cost and improving performance, are anticipated to drive the market growth. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market value is expected to reach US$ 464.1 Million by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.4% during 2022-2027.
