Global Bio-Lubricant (Vegetable Oil, Animal Fat) Market 2018-2022 - ResearchAndMarkets.com


The "Bio-Lubricant Market by Base Oil Type (Vegetable Oil, Animal Fat), Application (Hydraulic Fluids, Metalworking Fluids, Chainsaw Oils, Mold Release Agents), End Use (Industrial, Commercial Transport, Consumer Automobile) - Global Forecast to 2022" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The bio-lubricants market size in 2017 is estimated at USD 2.47 billion and is projected to reach USD 3.36 billion by 2022 at a CAGR of 6.4% between 2017 and 2022.

Environmental regulations, increasing production of vegetable oils, and emerging applications of bio-lubricants are some of the drivers of the market. Bio-lubricants are used across various end-use industries, and the long-term benefits of each application surpass their respective disadvantages. However, factors such as high prices and decline in crude oil prices are hindering the growth of the bio-lubricants market.

The hydraulic fluids application accounted for the largest share in terms of value, in 2016. The segment is also projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Hydraulic fluids are used in moving mechanical parts, cylinders in bridges and locks, elevators, and other fluids.

In the US and Canada, more than 75% of the elevators work on the principle of hydraulic fluids, which has a substantial market potential for bio-lubricants. Modified variants of bio-lubricants are being developed which remain in liquid form even at low temperatures with high oxidative stability. These lubricants have a long life span and are, therefore, expected to have increasing use in low-temperature applications. This is driving the market for the hydraulic fluids application segment.
