The global base oil market size is expected to reach USD 31.43 Billion by 2032, according to a new study by Polaris Market Research. The report “Base Oil Market Share, Size, Trends, Industry Analysis Report, By Grade (Group I, Group II, Group III, Group IV, Other Types), By Application, By Region, Segments & Forecast, 2019 – 2032” gives a detailed insight into current market dynamics and provides analysis on future market growth.
The increasing demand for high-quality lubricants, especially from end-use industries, including automotive, metallurgy, heavy equipment, chemicals, and power generation, is the key driving factor of the market.
Another key driver is the growing demand for synthetic and bio-based lubricants, which are expected to replace mineral-based lubricants in the coming years. Other factors expected to support the market in the coming period include technological advancements, increasing population and urbanization, and a shift towards synthetic base oils.
Base oil is a type of oil used as a primary component in producing lubricants, including engine, gear, and hydraulic oils. It is typically derived from crude oil through a refining process that removes impurities and other unwanted substances.
The automobile sector is a major user of lubricants, including base oil, and therefore plays a significant role in the base oil market. Base oil is used as a primary component in producing engine oils, gear oils, and transmission fluids in the automobile sector. For instance, as per OICA data, the total production of automotive vehicles in 2021 accounts for 80,145,988 units globally, an increase of around 3% compared to total automotive production in 2020.
The base oil market is experiencing several trends expected to shape its growth. One of the key trends is the shift towards synthetic and bio-based lubricants. Synthetic and bio-based lubricants are gaining popularity due to their superior performance, environmental friendliness, and regulatory compliance. Another trend is the increasing use of recycled base oils. Recycled base oils are cost-effective and reduce the environmental impact of lubricant production.
