Industrial Lubricants Market Outlook 2031
The global industrial lubricants market size was USD 68.82 Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach USD 90.58 Billion by 2031 expand at a CAGR of 3.1% during the forecast period, 2023 – 2031. The growth of the market is attributed to the rising demand for industrial lubricants in developed and developing economies.
Industrial lubricants are used to lessen the wear and tear of materials by reducing the friction between them. They are deployed to modify surface properties, regulate temperature, and remove debris. These lubricants avoid metal to metal contact amongst the tools or finished components. Industrial lubricants exhibit properties such as corrosion protection, demulsibility, and help to extend the equipment life.
It is used in variety of machineries to yield a high performance level, which in turn, aids to achieve high productivity and improve efficiency of machineries. There are two types of industrial lubricants, which are water-based and petroleum-based. Various applications of industrial lubricants include automotive, industrial machinery, mining, and hydraulic. The selection of lubricant depends on variety of factors such as its ability to expose itself to harsh chemicals and high temperature.
