Biolubricants Market Analysis - Global Industry Size, Share, Trends and Forecast, 2018 – 2026

Category : Chemicals and Materials | Delivery Format : PDF | Status: Forthcoming | Report ID : ARC677


Bio-lubes also known as biolubricants are biodegradable and nonhazardous lubricants. This is generally produced by using raw material/feedstock like coconut oil, sunflower oil, rapeseed oil, palm oil, and animal fats. Lubricants are materials used for the lubrication of power-driven components. Traditional lubricants are usually produced using petroleum based feedstock. R Demand and significance of biolubricant is increasing due to rising concern for the use of petroleum based lubricants having hazardous impact on environment and to moderate reliance on petroleum feedstock.

Market Dynamics

Increasing passenger car sales in developing economies is driving the growth of this market. Complex processing technologies, and upsurge in initial cost of production are majorly hampering growth of this market. Increasing environmental regulations such as ecolabels and vessel general permit (VGP) in the developed regions, new and upcoming organizations involved in the research and developments (R&D) are projected to drive the biolubricants market in next years.
