Description



Petrochemical components form the foundation of lubricants, however, derivatives of harvestable, natural feedstock from the oleo-chemical industry are increasingly finding acceptance due to their environmental viability and some technical benefits.

Worldwide, there are about 1,380 lubricant manufactures that range from large to small. Of these, about 180 national and multinational oil companies are vertically integrated petroleum companies with the core business objective of discovery, extraction, and refining of crude oil, whereas 1,200 independent lubricant companies regard lubricants as their core business, mainly concentrating on manufacture and marketing of lubricants.

The research report segments the independent lubricant manufacturers on two fronts – product and geography. For each of the segments, market data on a regional level is provided for the period 2013 to 2019.

The report presents a holistic picture of the market, analyzing growth trends, challenges, and opportunities that will have a bearing upon the future of the market. Included in the report is market size analytics of lubricants manufactured in terms of volume (Kilo tons) and revenue (USD million).

On the vendor landscape, the study profiles independent manufacturers dealing in lubricants, including company overview, financial standing, and recent developments of each of these vendors. 

Overview of the Global Independent Lubricant Manufacturers Market

Increasing applications of lubricants in the automotive sector, rising demand for biobased alternatives and complementary value-added services and technical assistance by independent lubricant manufacturers will drive the industry in coming years.

However, volatile prices of mineral oils and biobased lubricants will hold back the growth of the market. Ongoing research activities in the sector are likely to introduce improved products, thus aiding the overall market growth.

The global independent lubricant manufacturers market is estimated to reach US$8.5 billion by 2019. By demand, the market totaled 4,523.7 kilo tons in 2012 and could reach 5,432.0 kilo tons by 2019, expanding at a CAGR of 2.7% from 2013 to 2019.

Product-wise, the global independent lubricant manufacturers market is divided into two products segments – automotive lubricants and industrial lubricants.

In 2012, the industrial lubricants segment dominated the overall market. However, in the coming years, the automotive lubricants segment is expected to witness significant growth, predominantly in developing countries.

By end user, OEM units and heavy industries like mining, steel, and agriculture account as the primary end users of products manufactured by independent lubricant manufacturers.

Geography-wise, in 2012, Asia Pacific dominated the global independent lubricant manufacturers market, contributing nearly 40% of the market revenue. APAC was followed by North America and Europe. 

In recent years, the steady growth of the automotive industry in the U.S. is likely to create new prospects and thus will lead to growth of the independent lubricant manufacturers market. Europe, where the automotive industry has a long-established existence and also includes some of the major OEM car manufacturing companies, accounts as a principal market for global independent lubricant manufacturers.

Free Market Analysis


Independent lubricant manufacturers are not controlled by major oil companiesand most of them do not have their own refineries. Theyprocure base oils from major oil suppliers and petroleum companies and then process these oilswith additives to produce lubricants. These lubricants areutilized inseveral industrial and automobile applications. Independent lubricant manufacturers commonly purchase raw materials from theopen market (chemical and oleo-chemical industry).Independent lubricant manufacturers primarily focus on the manufacturing and marketing of lubricants followed and onspecialties and niche business. Some of the independent lubricant manufacturers namely Southwestern Petroleum Corporation basically deals in manufacturing of heavy duty lubes. They supply lubricants and provide technical assistance formetalworking fluid industry.

Besides having numerous advantages, lubricants are useful for wide range of applications in automotive and industrial end use sectors. Growing applications in the agriculture, mining and steel industry, increased automotive sales accompanied by growing support for bio-based lubricants are likely to fuel the lubricantsdemand in the coming years. Ongoing paradigm shift towards high precision technology over conventional method is expected to boost the demand for independent lubricant manufacturers. Growing demand of automated machines in mining and agricultural segments has flooded the industrial lubricants demand. Growing necessity to minimize lag-timeand raise production efficiencyparticularly in manufacturing industries is likely to impel the product demand in the coming five to six years. This in turn is expected to bolster the overall market growth over the forecast period.However, the market growth is dampened due to fluctuation in the mineral oil prices. The growing attractiveness of bio-based lubes is also expected to be pulled over by their high cost than mineral oil. As a result, the market is constrained by couple of challenges.

Lubricants play a vital role primarily in smooth operation of different moving machine parts.Independent lubricant manufacturers are in some of the niche markets supplying heavy duty lubricants to most of the heavy industries including OEM car manufacturers. Most of the OEM car manufacturers have signed agreements with independent lubricant manufacturers includingBMW, Audi, Porsche, and Mercedes. New opportunities are expected to be carved with signing of new agreements. Automotive product segment is estimated to be one of the rapidly growing segments owing to rising automotive sales, however, it acquired less market share than industrial lubricants product segment in 2012.

Asia Pacific led the independent lubricant manufacturers market in 2012 owing to the growing industrialization and flourishing automotive market. Countries such as Japanand China are expected to drive the product demand due to high potential in these regions. Asia Pacific is followed by North America and European countries. Matured market conditions and economic slowdown in North American and European market are expected to pull over the market growth in both regions. Cheap labor overheads and easy availability of raw materials are some of the factors attributing to Asian market growth. 

Independent lubricant manufacturers marketwas dominated by industrial product segment in 2012 accounting for more than 50% market share. The automotive lubricant product segment witnessed growth in demand owing to rise in automotive sales worldwide. Rising industrial applications demand high precision technological methods which are expected to open up new opportunities for independent lubricants manufacturers. Inception of automated machineries in agricultural and mining sector involves significant utilization of lubricants which has increased the production efficiency significantly over the past recent years.

Independent lubricant manufacturersmarket is fragmentedincluding large and small players.Fuchs dominated the independent lubricant manufacturers market in 2012, accounting for substantial market share. Fuchsprimarilyfocuses on expanding its business through establishing plants in numerous locations across the globe. Fuchs serves several market sectors including vehicle manufacturing, vehicle components, engineering, mining, construction, agriculture and forestry. Some of the other key players in the market includeMotul, Pentosin,Liqui Moly, Unil-Opal, Carlube, Royal Purple, Amsoil, Red Line and Torco.
