Base Oil Market Statistics – 2030

The global base oil market was valued at $34.9 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $41.7 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 1.8% from 2021 to 2030.

A refinery can produce base oil as one of its specialty products. Base oil is the refined petroleum mineral or synthetic material produced by a refinery to a required set of specifications, typically lubricant base stock. Base oils are made by extracting and processing high-viscosity material from vacuum gasoil or vacuum reside distillation cuttings. This necessitates unique processing through a range of lubes plant units. The quality of a lubricant can depend upon the type of base oil used for the refining and/or production method used to produce the base oil. It is critical toward the grade of lubricant as base oils normally make up to 70–97% of formulation of lubricants. 

Demand for oils in the automotive industry, especially from developing countries, and stringent environmental legislation leading to strict performance standards drive the global base oil market growth. Furthermore, increase in demand for hydraulic oil in the automobile industry drives the growth of oil base market. However, fluctuating costs of crude oil and regulations concerning emission norms hamper the market growth. The global shift from group I base oils to group II & III present numerous growth opportunities to market players.

The base oil market is segmented on the basis of resin type, application, and region. Depending on type, the market is categorized into group I, II, III, IV, and V. According to application, it is classified into automotive oil, industrial oil, metalworking fluids, hydraulic oil, greases, and others. Region wise, it  is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

Comprehensive competitive analysis and profiles of major market players, such as Phillips 66 Company, Chevron Corporation, Exxon Mobil Corporation , Evonik Industries AG, Neste Oyj, PT Pertamina, S-OIL Corporation, Royal Dutch Shell Plc, AVISTA OIL AG, and Saudi Aramco are considered in the report. 

Base Oil Market, by Type

The group I segment dominated the global base oil market in 2020, and is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period, as group I base oils are the cheapest base oils available in the market. The range of temperature for these base oils is from 30 to 150 degree Fahrenheit. In addition, these base oils are produced from a simple refining process, and thus are solvent-refined, which reduces the overall cost of these oils.

Impact Of Covid-19 On The Global Base Oil Market

  • Transport limitations were implemented, resulting in reduced industrial production and disrupted supply chains, which affected global economic growth by a substantial proportion, severely impacting market growth due to COVID-19 pandemic.
  • The COVID-19 outbreak had a rapid and devastating impact on the global automotive sector. Chinese parts shipments are being disrupted, large-scale manufacturing disruptions are occurring across Europe, and assembly plants in the U. S. are collapsing. This puts a lot of pressure on an automotive sector that is already dealing with a downturn in global demand, and it will almost certainly lead to additional merger and acquisition activity.
  • Furthermore, due to social distancing norms during COVID-19, the manufacturing companies worked with limited workforce, thus, negatively impacting the production and automotive sector.

Analyst Review

Changing lubricant grades necessitate the constant substitution of group I base oils by group II-and III-based products, leading to plant terminations across the globe. Low crude oil cost is expected to aid the industry for group I manufacturers and support for the base oil industry. Base oils in group I contain less than 90% saturates, greater than 0.03% sulfur, and Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) viscosity index of 80 to 120. Operating temperature range is 32-150°F. These oils are solvent-refined, which is a less time-consuming refining technique, making them the most affordable base oils.

The global economy profits from reduction in oil costs because of high financial multiplier in emerging oil-importing economies. Therefore, base oil utilization in the automotive sector is expected to grow through both increase in purchasing power (new and second-hand automotive deals) and surge in vehicle usage. This growth is expected to be particularly noticeable in developing countries and control the decline in group I base oil demand. However, in 2020, COVID-19 had a negative impact on the market. Declining automotive industry and temporary shutdown of automotive manufacturing and  industrial units as a result of the pandemic scenario, resulted in lower consumption of engine oil, gear oils, greases, and metalworking fluid, reducing the demand for base oil.

Asia-Pacific is expected to have a significant global market share by 2030, owing to enhanced demand from automotive sector and surge in industrial growth. Increase in inclination toward higher grade lubricants and base stocks expands Asia-Pacific’s market share, owing to lower costs of base oils.
