Lubricants are essential for smooth functioning of machines in various industries. They can be said as compounds like oils, greases and fluids. These lubricants prevent metal-to-metal contact in dyes and finished component tooling. Industrial lubricants are used to cool parts, reduce friction, disperse contaminants, minimize wear, prevent corrosion, transmit power and act as a sealant in machineries. They are also crucial in modifying the surface properties, temperature regulation, and removing the debris. Increase in the demand for grease and low viscosity fluids in the automotive sector as well as the growing food industry and rapid industrialization in developing countries are the key factors for the growth of the market in recent years.
COVID-19 impact analysis
- The impact of the COVID-19 have affected in industrial lubricants market negatively as the industries were forced to shut down due implementation of lockdown in various places. The demand of the product was drastically decreased as the use of machineries was halted in many industries.
- The global supply chain of industrial lubricants market was abruptly disrupted as there were restrictions on movement. Only essential product’s movement was allowed during the pandemic. As a result, the manufacturers' requirement was not met. .
- The migration of labors had a huge impact on the market. There was scarcity of labors in several industries due to which the production level was compromised.
Top Impacting factors
The growing automotive sector and industrial growth are expected to fuel the demand of industrial lubricants market. However, with the increase in the prices of crude oil, the awareness of people of developed and developing countries are opting for electric vehicles. Moreover, electric vehicles are offering various advantages due to consistent technological growth. The increasing adoption of electric vehicles may hinder the growth of automotive sector hence affecting the growth of industrial lubricants market. A small reduction in consumption of energy can save a lot of money of the manufacturers. Thus, with a significant lubrication, a company can save a lot of dollars. Hence, rapid industrialization and strict environment regulations imposed by the authorities are expected to drive the market during the forecast period.
New product launch
- Hydraulic fluids are expected to drive the global industrial lubricants market during the forecast period due to its low cost as compared to the other types and its demand from the construction industry. The demand for industrial lubricants is on the verge of a breakthrough in construction industry due to the rising construction activities in the residential sector like in China and the rising infrastructural developments in India.
- Heavy equipment has the most demand for industrial lubricants in the India. The growing construction and mining activities have increased the utilization of heavy equipment in the country.
