Biodegradable Lubes Market: Drivers and Restraints
The global biodegradable lubes market is on the rise due to the increasing preference for bio-chemicals as pro-environmental solutions. Additionally, a number of legislations and initiatives taken by government regulatory bodies for manufacturing biodegradable lubes will work in favor of the development of this market. Furthermore, the increasing significance of eco-friendly lubricants owing to the rising concerns on synthetic lubricants will also bode well for the growth of this market.
There is high employment of biodegradable lubes in hydraulic oils, process oils, and engine oils and this is why the booming industry of automotives will further provide impetus to the growth of the market. Moreover, different kinds of biodegradable lubes including polyolester, water soluble polyglycols, and vegetable oils are employed in households, coastal areas, and a number of other environmental sensitive applications, thus bolstering the growth of the overall market. On the other hand, owing to the fact that biodegradable lubricants are much more expensive as compared to traditionally utilized lubricants, this is why the growth of this market is somewhat restrained. Nonetheless, the rising activities of research and development in order to manufacture new cutting-edge products will bring in new growth opportunities in the global biodegradable lubes market.
