Key Market Insights

Increase demand from end-users will spur the market revenue growth

The global Grease market accounted for US$ 1.9 Bn in 2018 and is anticipated to grow to US$ 2.3 Bn growing at a CAGR of 2.5% during the forecast period from 2019 to 2027.

Grease is a form of semisolid lubricant typically containing vegetable or mineral oil blended soap. Grease is a by-product from the dispersal of a liquid lubricant thickening agent. Depending upon type of thickener, type of base oil and the additive technology used, the grease properties differs. Grease is used primarily to reduce friction between two moving surfaces and minimize wear and tear levels. For several purposes, grease is preferred to oils such as wax, and acts as a sealant to avert leakage of lubricants and to preserve damaged seals in cases where oil leaks out of application. Grease thwarts corrosive pollutants and foreign material from entering, the grease-demanding equipment is also simple in design, needs less room and weights considerably less than similar equipment, as a result of which the overall cost of the equipment for repair and procurement is reduced. Owing to this application and the benefits offered by grease demand for it is bolstering in the end-use industries.
