Synthetic Lubricants Market By Product (Group IV (PAO), Group V (PAG), Group V (Esters)), By Application (Transmission Fuels, Engine Oils, Heat Transfer Fluids (HTF), Metalworking Fluids, Others) - Growth, Future Prospects, Competitive Analysis and Forecast, 2016 - 2023

Synthetic lubricants are high performance lubricants which are used for equipments which run faster and hotter to meet productivity demands. Synthetic lubricants have been in the market since 70 years and have been used by Germany and U.S. to make the equipments run in harsh environments. The importance of synthetic lubricants has been recognized by the end-user industries in the last 20 years and has been promoting the use of synthetic lubricants worldwide.

Synthetic lubricants are formulated by combination of low molecular materials in a chemical reaction to manufacture higher molecular weight materials. These reactions are controlled to produce higher molecular weight materials. These chemical reactions are controlled to manufacture products which comprise targeted performance properties and uniform consistency. Lubricants which are mineral based don’t possess the properties which are present in synthetic lubricants which attracted the end-user industries in the worldwide market.

Group IV (PAO) accounted as the largest product segment of global synthetic lubricants market. PAG synthetic lubricants are base oils which consist of excellent properties such as varnish for heavy duty services applications and reciprocating compressors. These properties have led to high demand for PAO synthetic lubricants in the market. Other product segments such as Group V (PAG) and Group V (Esters) are also anticipated to boost high demand for synthetic lubricants in the global market. Engine oils application accounted for major share of global synthetic lubricants market and is expected to increase in the near future. Increasing sales of automobiles worldwide is the major reason driving the demand for engine oils, thereby fueling growth of synthetic lubricants in the global market. Heat transfer fluids application followed engine oils application in terms of demand in 2015. Other applications such as transmission fluids, metalworking fluids and others are also projected to boost high demand for synthetic lubricants in the market.

Synthetic lubricants market was valued is expected to reach US$ 33.8 Bn by 2023, growing at a CAGR of more than 2.8% during the forecast period 2016-2023.
