The Global Synthetic lubricants Market has been estimated at USD XXX.XX million in 2015 and is projected to reach USD XXX.XX million by 2020, at a CAGR of XX.XX% during the forecast period from 2015 to 2020.

Synthetic Lubricants are chemical engineered lubricants derived from pure chemicals unlike conventional lubricants which are refined from crude oil. These lubricants do not contain nitrogen, sulphur or any other harmful elements that led to the formation of sludge and thereby, damage the engine or machine. Since, these lubricants features uniform and smooth molecular structure which led to lower friction and increases the energy through-put, fuel efficiency and power to ensure a longer equipment life.

The various advantages such as improved energy efficiency, wide operating temperature range, reduced maintenance, and safer operations led to the adaptation of these lubricants by wide number of end-user industries. Construction, energy, transportation, mining, oil & gas, food processing and refrigeration and many other industries extensively use synthetic lubricants.

The use of Synthetic lubricants across different industries and the growing automotive and mining industries across different regions are the key drivers for the industries. Moreover, rapid industrialization in the developing regions will led to the increase in demand for these lubricants. The growing industrialization will also led to the growth of high-performance lubricants in the developing regions. The market is however, restrained by the growing popularity for eco-friendly and bio-based lubricants.

The market has been geographically segmented into Asia-Pacific (APAC), North America, South America, Europe and Middle East & Africa. The industrial growth in the developing regions across the globe, especially in the mining, automotive and construction sector are the key consumers for the Synthetic lubricants and will help this market grow in the future.

The profiles of the various Synthetic lubricant producing companies have included in the report. These includes Chevron Corporation, Chemtura Corporation, Castrol, British Petroleum, ExxonMobil, Lubrizol, Kao Corporation, Petro Canada, Petro China, Gulf Oil Middle-East, Lukoil, NOF Corporation, The DOW Chemical Company, Total S.A., Valvoline, Sinopec, Royal Dutch Shell, and Petronas among others.
