Increasing Usage of High Performance Lubricants
Synthetic lubricants offer better and improved properties, in comparison to mineral lubricants, such as low-traction coefficient, reduced power consumption, reduced gear wear, increased service life, and reduced flammability to increase safety, among many others. The adoption of synthetic or high-performance lubricants is primarily being driven by the type of vehicle, cubic capacity of the engine, category of the vehicle, and its age. Additionally, with changes in engine technology, such as engine downsizing, use of turbochargers has increased to meet the emission standards. This will likely augment the market for engine oil during the forecast period.
Extended Drain Intervals
The chemistry and technology involved in the production of engine oil have undergone a tremendous change in the recent times. With the introduction of long-lasting, high-performance lubricants, the interval for oil change has extended almost by 100%. For instance, 60 years ago, the typical oil change interval for a truck was between 500-1,000 miles. But with the advancement in lubricant technology, the oil change interval has currently come to 50,000 miles, and is expected to increase further. This leads to the decrease in consumption of engine oil, and can hinder the market growth.
Demand from Chemical Manufacturing to Expand at a Fast Rate
Some of the requirements of engine oils used in chemical manufacturing are reduced friction, oxidation resistance, mechanical & structure stability, low oil bleed, low-temperature torque, rust and corrosion protection, non-foaming, demulsibility properties to shed water, and low depletion. Due to increasing chemical manufacturing in certain regions, such as Asia-Pacific, North America, and Europe, the demand for engine oils is expected to increase during the forecast period.
