According to a report,“Synthetic Ester Lubricants Market Analysis By Application (Compressor Oils, Hydraulic Oils, Metalworking Fluids, Diesel And Petrol Engine Oils) And Segment Forecasts To 2020”, published by Grand View Research, Inc., the global synthetic ester lubricants market is expected to reach USD 2.0 billion by 2020.This trend is expected to continue over the forecast period due to growing need of synthetic ester as hydraulic oils in manufacturing and construction industry. Rapid industrialization and infrastructure development in Asia Pacific is expected to propel demand for synthetic esters over the forecast period.
Key Takeaways from the report:
Synthetic esters for compressor oils dominated the application share, accounting for 40.7% of global synthetic ester volume in 2013. Increasing use of the product in compressor oils owing to improved thermal stability, high dielectric strength and low moisture content is expected to be a favorable factor for growth in the near future.
Hydraulic oils are expected to witness growth on account of rising awareness towards environmental friendly lubricants among consumers. In addition, growing exploration activities in oil & gas industry particularly in South China Sea coupled with rising demand for hydraulic oils from energy industry particularly in India, Indonesia and Vietnam is expected to drive growth.
Europe dominated the product volume, accounting for 37.6% of the total share in 2013 primarily due to high lubricant demand from aerospace and manufacturing industries. Europe demand for synthetic ester lubricants is expected to grow at a significant rate owing to supportive regulations promoting the use of biodegradable esters in various applications including compressor oils, engine oils and metalworking fluids.
The region is expected to lose share owing to the shift in manufacturing activities to parts of Asia and South America. This is primarily due to availability of cheap skilled labor coupled with low priced raw material availability and technology advancement.
Key participants include Exxon Mobil, British Petroleum, Shell, Total, Chevron, Fuchs Group, Valvoline, Amsoil Inc., INEOS and International Lubricants Inc.
