Alkylated Naphthalene Market Surpass $152.3 Million By 2026 | CAGR 5.4%

Author: Acumen Research and Consulting

The global alkylated naphthalene market’s value is foreseen to touch USD 152.3 million by the end 2026 and the industry is expected to markets a CAGR of 5.4% during the foretold years.

Alkylated naphthalene utilized in lubricant-grade oils are delivered by alkylation of naphthalene within the sight of acatalyst. Alkylated naphthalene is classified as a Group-V base oil by the American Petroleum Institute (API). In any case, alkylated naphthalene is once in a while utilized as a sole base oil. It is fundamentally utilized in lubricant formulation, replacing a segment of a Group-II, Group-III, or PAO base oil. Incorporating alkylated naphthalene in a formulation improves thermal and thermo-oxidative steadiness of the formulation. This improves the general time span of usability and execution of lubricants.

Emerging economies, for example, member countries of BRICS, by and large represented 23.9% share of the worldwide GDP in 2017. BRICS nations expected to observe a critical increment in their GDP by 2022. This has brought about development of sectors, for example, automotive,energy and industrial machinery,which has helped the demand for alkylated naphthalene and finished ointments. Moreover, the worldwide international trade expanded at a development rate of 2.5% from 2016 to 2017, which supported the prerequisite for lubricants from marine and transportation businesses. This, thus, expanded the demand for alkylated naphthalene. Consequently, ascend in trade industrialization, and urbanization is driving the lubricant demand. This, thusly, is boosting the demand for alkylated naphthalene.

The automotive sector is a noteworthy customer of lubricants. Also, utilization of oils is basic in the automotive sector, which surges dependency on lubricants and alkylated naphthalene. Fast development in populace and ascend in disposable income have pushed the demand for traveller and business vehicles. The worldwide offers of cars and commercial vehicles remained at 96.8 million units in 2018. This is increasing the demand for completed lubricants and alkylated naphthalene. Increment in disposable income and simple account alternatives have made buying of vehicles simple for the common man. Which is the reason the sale of 4 wheelers is expanding in developing nations. Lubricants are basic for the smooth working of these vehicles. This, thus, builds the demand for oils.

Numerous economic factors, for example, over-production of crude oil, slow down in the demand for oil from China, changes in vitality arrangement of nations cause variances in oil costs. Since crude oil is a circuitous raw material utilized in the generation of alkylated naphthalene, the value change is reflected in alkylated naphthalene costs. These elements have made unpredictability in costs of and demand for alkylated naphthalene. Instability of raw material costs limits the generation of and demand for alkylated naphthalene.


The global alkylated naphthalene market has been classified into Grade,Viscosity Index, Application, and region. Based on grade, the global alkylated naphthalene market is segregated into standard and food.On the basis of viscosity index, the market is segregated into 22–65 SUS, 65–90 SUS, 90–115 SUS and Above 115 SUS. On the basis of application, the market is segregated into automotive engine & gear oils, hydraulic fluids, heat transfer oils, compressor oils, paper machine oils, industrial lubes & greases and others. On the basis of region, the global alkylated naphthalene market is bifurcated into North America, Latin America, Europe, Middle East & Africa, and Asia Pacific.

Key players profiled in the alkylated naphthalene industry incorporate ExxonMobil Corporation, King Industries Inc., and NACO Corporation. These players participate in long haul contracts, geographical extension, and improvement and launched of new product. For example, in June 2018, ExxonMobil Corporation procured PT Federal Karyatama (FKT), an Indonesia-based ointment producer, which is a noteworthy maker of cruiser oils on the planet. The securing is relied upon to help ExxonMobil fortify its situation in the ointment oils industry in Indonesia. Furthermore, in June 2018, ExxonMobil and Synthetic Genomics Inc. reported a leap forward in joint research on advanced biofuels including the change of a green growth strain. This is required to twofold biofuel oil content without altogether hindering the strain.

The main players contributing to the international alkylated naphthalene are Shanghai NACO Lubrication Co., Ltd., ExxonMobil Corporation, King Industries Inc.,Quaker Chemical Corporation, NACO Corporation, Huntsman Corporation, Kao Corporation, NOVITAS CHEM SOLUTIONS, LLC., Nease Co. LLC., Akzo Nobel N.V., and GEO Specialty Chemicals, Inc.
