The China lubricant market is expected to register a CAGR of 3.74% during the forecast period, 2018-2023. The major factors driving the growth of the market are the increasing demand from automotive production and boosting demand from power generation applications.

Lubricants are majorly used in the industrial sector for the proper functioning of machines. They are also used in automobile for smooth functioning and longevity of engines and other components. Lubricants are available in liquid, semi-fluid, or solid state, and possess various characteristics, such as high viscosity index, high level of thermal stability, low freezing point, and high boiling point, all of which help to reduce friction between surfaces of machine parts and the rate of wear, without compromising operational efficiency.

Automotive Production Boosting the Engine Oil Demand

The growing middle class along with urbanization of Western China, has aided in increasing the demand and production of vehicles in the country. The country’s automotive sector has been shaping for product evolution, with the country focusing on manufacturing products, to ensure fuel economy, and minimizing emissions (owing to growing environmental concerns (due to mounting pollution in the country). This increasing production is the major factor contributing the growth of engine oil consumption in China.

Synthetic Lubricants a Potential Segment

Synthetic lubricants are expected to show great potential in China, especially in applications, such as automotive engine oils, power generation lubricants and metalworking fluids. The increasing demand for synthetic gear oils in wind turbines and also for achieving better efficiencies in aviation turbines are expected to create an opportunity for the growth of synthetic lubricants in China.
