Marine Grease Market Segment Analysis - By End User

The bulk Carrier and cargo ships user segment is estimated to lead the marine grease market share in 2019. Marine grease is extensively used by the bulk carrier and cargo ships due to the rise in the volume of heavy cargo and other products transported through ships. This rise in the trans-shipment of cargos through ships has led to an increase in the need for marine grease in order to maintain the efficiency and performance of the ship. Additionally, the rise in marine trade among nations has led to an increase in demand for super-sized ships is estimated to fuel product demand.

Marine Grease Market Segment Analysis - By Type of Greases

Mineral based grease is the largest grease segment of the global marine grease market and is estimated to account for the largest market share in 2019. Most greases produced today use mineral oil as their fluid components. This oil is available in light and heavy grades, depending on the usage and requirement. Mineral oil is produced in large quantities because of its high demand in different marine applications, such as engines, turbines, and stern tubes. However, during the forecast period, 2022-2027, the bio-based or vegetable oil and segment is estimated to experience the highest growth rate in Europe and North America due to the introduction of new government regulations related to the protection of the aquatic environment in these regions.

Marine Grease Market Segment Analysis - By Geography

Europe dominates the global marine grease market, due to its higher dependency on the marine ways for trade and other purpose. However, the market is also projected to witness lucrative opportunities in the Asia-Pacific region due to the presence of some of the busiest ports in the world. The rising infrastructural developments and increasing trade activities in these countries are estimated to fuel the market demand.

Marine Grease Market Drivers

Growing demand international trade through waterways

The increasing globalization of enterprises has driven the demand for shipping services, leading to the expansion of the shipping industry, and has created growth opportunities for the global marine grease market.
