Overview of Lubricating Oil Market
Lubricating oils are majorly employed in the reduction of wear, heat and friction between mechanical parts that are in contact with each other. Hence, lubricating oils are primarily utilized in vehicles, internal combustion engines, industrial gearboxes, hydraulic systems, and turbines. There are two main types of lube oils, namely synthetic and mineral lubricating oil. Crude oil or naturally occurring petroleum is utilized for refining mineral lubricating oils, while synthetic lubricating oils refer to manufactured polyalphaolefins, which are ester oils or hydrocarbon-based polyglycols.
The exponentially growing automobile industry and the rapidly increasing industrialization globally are amongst the prime factors propelling the growth of the lubricating oil market. In addition, the increasing modernization of industrial machinery and the growing demand for low viscosity fluids in the automotive industry will also positively impact the development of the market.
