The Global Bio-lubricants Market was valued at US$ XX Mn in 2016 and is expected to reach US$ XX Mn by 2022 growing at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period. Bio-lubricants, commonly known as bio-lubes are produced from rapeseed oil, sunflower oil, animal fats and others. They are biodegradable, non-toxic, renewable and environmentally friendly products. A conventional petroleum-based lubricant is hazardous to the ecological system, so large number of companies arefocusing is on the development of bio-lubricants based products. Increase in sales of vehicles has boosted the global bio-lubricants market as new vehicles use bio-lubricants rather than conventional petroleum-based lubricants.

Market Dynamics

Regulations for the use of biobased lubricants and growth in end-user industries such as transportation and shipping are some of the main factors driving the global bio-based lubricants market. The increasing use of biobased lubricants derived from renewable resources is also due to their environment-friendly nature, low toxicity, and high biodegradability. Due to their relative abundance and high lubricating properties, vegetable oils are increasingly finding application in engine oils,metalworking fluids,hydraulic fluids, andpetroleum fuel additives. With increasing demand for vegetable oils, their production is also on the rise.

The USA, Europe, and China are changing their policies to support the bio-lubricants. Also, as the climate change is gaining value, the developing economies are switching to eco-friendly fuels. It will significantly reduce the pollution caused byleakage in the engines and systems thereby saving the environment.

In future, Crude Oil Depletion is a serious challenge faced by lubricant industry.However, petroleum reserves will not last long. Hence, there is a great opportunity in future for the alternatives and bio-lubricants. Research is on to find a cost-effective, low production method for bio-lubricants. Therefore, investors have a good opportunity for a profitable business in the forecasted period.
