The global industrial lubricant market is expected to reach USD 68.41 billion by 2024, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The growth of key end-use industries such as chemical manufacturing, food processing and electronics particularly in Asia Pacific is expected to drive industry growth. Increase in industrial output in emerging economies such as China, India, Russia, Brazil, and South Africa, predominantly in core manufacturing sectors, such as metal forming, foundry, consumer appliances, and plastics, along with the mining industry is expected to foster demand.
Initiatives such as continuously evolving emission standards, improving engine technology, and norms about mitigated carbon footprints are being adopted in emerging economies such as China and India. The paradigm shift towards environmental conservation is touted to be the key growth driving factors.
Chemical manufacturing was the largest application for industrial lubricants due to the high demand for non-reactive, sustainable and compatible processing fluids to handle various intermediaries and petrochemicals in a safe & efficient manner.
