Product Trends

Global synthetic lubricants industry is segmented into products like PAG (Polyalkylene glycols), GroupIV (Polyalpha- olefin)(PAO)and GroupV (Esters).

Group IV Polyalpha-olefinsegment contributed more than 436 kilotons for 2015 in terms of size and is predicted to record aCAGR of about 4.1% during forecast timeline. Enhanced use of polyalpha-olefin in engines of automobiles along with OEM (original equipment manufacturers) endorsementin brands like BMW and Volkswagen is projected to promote segment expansion in future.

Group V or esters segment is predicted to touch $1.74 billion and record CAGR of 4.91% by the end of forecast period. Rising demand of esters in reciprocating compressors due to original equipment manufacturers like Ingersoll Rand as well as recommending usage of compressor oil is predicted to fuel segment growth.

Application Trends

Global synthetic lubricants market is segmented into applications like metalworking fluids, engine oils and heat transfer fluid (HTF).

Engine oils contributed more than 40.1% of globalsynthetic lubricants market share for 2015 and is predicted to record CAGR of 4.3% by end of forecast timeline. Main applications of engine oils are rising drain intervals and offering outstanding film protection along with broad functioning temperature range. All these aspects are predicted to enhance the demand for engine oils segment.

HTF or heat transfer fluid removes water and heats reboilers in chemical and oil & gas sectors. Due to this property the demand of HTF segment is predicted to grow in future. It is projected to surpass 291 kilo tons of production by end of 2023. Further, these fluids are also utilizedin power steering and as lubricants in four-wheeldrive fluid transfers. The segment is predicted to record CAGR of 4.2% during forecast timeline.

Regional Trends

Global synthetic lubricants industry is segmented into geographical locations like Asia Pacific, North America, MEA, LATAM and Europe.

Asia Pacific, led by India and China synthetic lubricants market, is predicted to consume 245 kilo tons by end of forecast timelineand projectedto record CAGR of 4.6%.Growing high end automobile sales in Asia Pacific is projected to stimulate industry expansion during forecast timeline. Further, superlative features and high performance of synthetic lubricants products as compared to its mineral based counter parts helps in wide use of these products in high end automotive.

Europe synthetic lubricants market price is predicted to surpass $1.67 billion by end of 2023 due to presence of key automobile and airplaneproducing firms like Audi, Airbus, Volkswagen, Rolls Royce, Mercedes and BMW.

Middle East and LATAM synthetic lubricants industry provides unexplored growth avenues for industry participants. But U.S. synthetic lubricants market is equally saturated
