Bio-Lubricant Market – Global Forecast to 2022

April 17, 2018 | By forimmediaterele | Filed in: Press Releases.

Travel & Tourism Industry release:

The global bio-lubricants market was estimated at USD 2.47 Billion in 2017, and is projected to reach USD 3.36 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 6.4% during the period.

The bio-lubricants market is projected to grow at a healthy growth rate during the next five years and is driven by increasing consumer awareness about the environment and stringent governmental regulations. The report analyzes the market based on base oil type, end-use industry, application, and region. It also covers the market behavior of leading producers, key developments, and strategies implemented to sustain and succeed in the market.

Globally, Europe led the bio-lubricants market in 2016, whereas the market in North America is projected to grow at the highest CAGR, in terms of value, during the forecast period. North America is projected to be the largest market by 2022. Europe leads the demand for bio-lubricants due to the presence of countries, such as Germany, France, Finland, Norway, Italy, and others where environmental concerns are addressed through various emission standards and the use of biodegradable products.

The major restraints in the market are identified to be lack of sufficient regulatory mandates in the APAC and higher prices than petroleum-based lubricants. Market leaders, such as Shell (Netherlands), BP (UK), ExxonMobil (US), and Kluber Lubrication (Germany) have a strong brand image, in both, petroleum-based products as well as bio-based products.

Stringent regulations in Europe are expected to be beneficial for market players as they continue to use growth strategies, such as new product developments and agreements & collaborations to increase the penetration of bio-lubricants.
