As per Growth Market Reports industry analyst Gargi Athalye, the “Global Synthetic Industrial Gear Oil Market” is anticipated to witness significant growth during the forecast period 2023-2031. Industrial gear oil is a liquid lubricant that is used in gears (gearboxes) to protect surfaces, reduce the friction of the gear parts, remove heat produced by the operating gear, and protect the gear parts from corrosion.

Gear oils are used in wind turbines to lubricate the primary gearbox and other gear motor components due to the high temperatures, corrosion, bearing wear, oxidation, and load weights involved in the power production process. Synthetic gear oils are employed, when mineral gear oils do not function at their peak level or meet application requirements Gear oils are categorized into various types, such as polyalkylene glycol (PAG), polyisobutylene (PIB), and polyalphaolefin (PAO). Each type meets a specific requirement for industrial and automotive applications.

Synthetic gear oil demand has been consistently rising for the past five years owing to the significant increase in the production units among the developing nations. The market in Asia Pacific is expected to remain dominant during the forecast period owing to rapid industrialization and growth of the automotive sector in the region.
