Global Industrial Lubricants Market - Outlook and Forecast 2022-2027
The global industrial lubricants market is anticipated to exhibit a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 3.63% from 2022 to 2027, reaching a projected value of over USD 71 billion in 2027 compared to USD 57.4 billion in 2021. Industrial lubricants are specifically formulated to safeguard machinery and equipment, minimize downtime, extend service intervals, and reduce maintenance costs. These lubricants are classified into different types and consist of base oils and additives. Their formulation aims to prevent damage or operational issues caused by degradation, prolong maintenance intervals, increase machine uptime, enhance productivity, and ensure operational reliability.
Governments worldwide are increasingly raising awareness about the environmental impact of greenhouse gas emissions. Collaborating with environmental agencies and non-governmental organizations, governments are implementing stringent emission regulations to mitigate the harmful effects of these gases on the environment and human health. For manufacturers, this presents an opportunity to develop eco-friendly industrial lubricants that comply with emission regulations. Bio-based industrial lubricants, derived from vegetable oil and synthetic esters, are being produced to meet these demands. North America and Europe are the largest consumers of bio-based lubricants.

The BRICS nations, comprising Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa, encompass major emerging economies. The primary objectives of the BRICS cooperation are to promote peace, security, development, and cooperation. These countries also have significant market demand and consumption, driven by factors such as large and relatively young populations, substantial investments in physical and digital infrastructure, abundant low-cost labor, and rising incomes. Consequently, the demand for industrial lubricants is expected to escalate in the coming years.
The improper disposal or illegal dumping of used industrial lubricants presents a grave pollution issue, leading to contamination of groundwater, surface water, and soil. Direct combustion of these used lubricants without pre-treatment is not recommended due to their potential toxic and hazardous residues, including metal and metalloid particles. Such chlorinated compounds may be released into the atmosphere. Instead of treating them as waste, used lubricants should be recycled. The quality and value of lubricants largely depend on factors such as water or solid contamination. Various processes, including reprocessing, re-refining, and destruction, can be utilized for the retreatment of industrial lubricants.
