About Lubricants

Lubricants reduce friction between surfaces. They are usually in oily, semi-fluid, or solid state. Superior-quality lubricants possess various characteristics such as a high level of thermal stability, high boiling point, low freezing point, and high viscosity index. These features help it reduce friction between surfaces of machine parts and increase operational efficiency. There are several types of lubricants including engine oils, process oils, hydraulic fluids, turbine oils, tractor fluids, gear oils, and metal-working fluids.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio’s team said: “One of the major trends emergiung in this market is the development of environmentally friendly lubricants. Bio-based lubricants leave minimal trace in the environment, thus preventing toxicity and bioaccumulation. Many vendors are focusing on bioaccumulation and eco-toxicity to reduce adverse impacts on the environment.”

According to the report, the Global Lubricants market is mainly driven by increased demand from the automotive industry, the largest end-user for lubricants. The use of lubricants increases the performance and fuel efficiency of a vehicle. Lubricants are used for smoothening the movement of the moving parts of a vehicle.
