Category : Agriculture | Delivery Format : PDF | Status: Forthcoming | Report ID : ARC539


Lubricant is the substance which is used to reduce abrasion or friction between two surfaces those are in contact with each other. It helps in eradication of heat, and transition of power and is available in liquid, solid, and gaseous state. They are also found in semisolid forms. Greases are one of the most common examples of lubricants in semisolid state. Additives (5-30%) are added to lubricants to enhance its performance. Lubricants are used in agricultural equipment to increase the productivity.

Market Dynamics

Decline in availability of agricultural workers, leading to increased labor cost are the major driving factors for agricultural lubricant market. Moreover, the growing focus towards mechanization in the agricultural sector is also one of the factors augmenting the growth of agricultural lubricants market. Also, the subsidies provided by government for agricultural equipment boosts the growth of agricultural lubricants market. However, high cost of bio-based lubricants is the major restraining factor for the market growth. Nevertheless, the extensive possibility for rise in farmhouse systematization in India and China provides major growth opportunities for manufacturers of agricultural lubricants.

Market Classification and Overview

The agricultural lubricant market is bifurcated based on type, application, and geography. The different types of agricultural lubricant include mineral oil lubricants, synthetic lubricants, and bio-based lubricants. Mineral oil lubricant segment is expected to be the largest contributor in 2015 owing to its low cost and wide usage. Engine, gear & transmission, hydraulics, greasing, and implements are the major applications of agricultural lubricants. Engine is the largest application market for agricultural lubricants as it helps in improving the engine lifespan.

Regional Overview

The market for agricultural lubricant is segmented into regions such as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Middle-East and Africa (MEA). Asia-Pacific was the largest contributor to the global agricultural lubricant market in 2015, with China being the largest producer of rice, tomato, and cotton. The region is also projected to register highest growth during the forecast period, as 57% of countries in the region have agriculture as their prime occupation. North America was the second biggest market followed by Europe. The market for agricultural lubricants in India is further projected to witness highest growth in coming years owing to better agricultural regulations by government.
