Biodegradable Engine Oil Market Overview - 2027

The global biodegradable engine oil market size was valued at $931.2 million in 2019, and is projected to reach $1,180.4 million by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 4.3% from 2020 to 2027. Biodegradable engine oils, also known as bio-lubricants and bio-lubes, are biodegradable and nontoxic lubricants. Organic lubricants are usually made by using raw materials such as rapeseed oil, sunflower oil, palm oil, coconut oil, and animal fats. In terms of non-toxicity, sustainability, carbon neutral, and environmentally safe, bio lubricants provide many advantages over conventionally used petroleum-based product offerings. Attributed to the high flash point and high stability, the use of bio-lubricants over traditional lubricants is comparatively better. Bio-lubricants are used for a variety of applications across diverse set of industries, including automotive, marine, construction, among others.

Rise in demand for sustainable and high-performance lubricants is expected to accelerate market growth along with increase in environmental concerns. In addition, with the growth of the construction sector in China, the demand for heavy machinery lubricants in the construction sector, such as wire rope lubricants for penetration and coating, diesel fuel, engine oil, bearing grease, and others, is expected to increase over the forecast period. Moreover, high cost and poor performance of biodegradable engine oil are the major factors that restrict the biodegradable engine oil market growth. Additionally, it is a very demanding job to convince small-scale farmers to use agricultural lubricants. Low capital is also an obstacle to the adoption of agricultural lubricants by small-scale farmers as they tend to stick to conventional cost-friendly methods.

Analyst Review

The global biodegradable engine oil market is moving toward growth stabilization phase in its industry life cycle. Increase in demand from agriculture, transportation, construction, and others sectors drives the global biodegradable engine oil market. Earlier, the dominant raw material for lubricant production was vegetable oil due to its beneficial characteristics such as renewability, non-toxicity, and economic & environmental friendliness. Therefore, this oil is increasingly used for bio-lubricant processing. Additionally, the largest demand for biodegradable engine oil is from transportation. In emerging regions, such as India, China, South Africa, and Brazil, the expansion of the transport sector is also intended to drive the consumption of sustainable goods, thereby leading to higher fuel efficiency and lower carbon emissions from vehicles. In addition, Demand for biodegradable engine oil in Europe is strong in the United Kingdom, Spain, Italy, Germany and France, owing to the rapid growth in the industrial sector in those countries. The European Union stresses the protection of the environment and provides subsidies to biodegradable engine oil producers. In order to encourage the use of biodegradable engine oil, the Organization for Economic Co-operation & Development (OECD) has set such regulatory requirements.
