Base Oil Market Size, Trends & Growth (2021 - 2026)

The size and share of the global Base Oil Market size were estimated at $ 35.7 billion in 2021 and is predicted to expand up to $ 39.6 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 5.7% in the timeline of 2022 - 2027.

The base oil is the refined petroleum mineral or artificial component obtained by a refinery according to a set of needed specifications, usually a base stock of lubricant. The quality of a lubricant may be depending on the kind of base oil employed for refining and the production method employed to obtain the base oil. It is essential for the quality of the lubricant since base oils normally represent up to 70-97% of a lubricant's formulation.

Recent Developments

  • Though the good is not available for sale to the public, Croda Lubricants declared its new Group V base oil technique throughout the opening day of F+L Week 2016 at Regent Singapore. Artificial base stocks are generally made of esters or amides. 

  • Calumet Specialty Goods Partners newly introduced the firm's first American Petroleum Institute (API) Group III artificial base oil. CALPAR 4GIII is a paraffinic oil that has been made to meet the API's needs for Group III base oils. 

Market Drivers & Restraints in the Base Oil Market

The rising call for high-quality oils in the automotive industry and the escalation of GDP in Asia-Pacific led by the increase in industrial activities are driving the growth of the market worldwide. The increasing adoption of Group II and III base oils as a result of increased ground transportation, aviation, and commercial road transport is expected to support growth in the next eight years. The increase in this market can be attributed to growing concerns about environmental degradation and the consequent increase in demand for alternative and sustainable products with a lower carbon footprint. Consumers are increasingly demanding better performance and high mileage vehicles due to the growing awareness among them about vehicle use that should not be replaced any time soon.

The call for oils in the automotive industry, mainly in growing nations, and strict environmental legislation leading to strict performance standards are driving the worldwide base oil industry. However, volatility in the prices of crude oil and stringent government standards is predicted to limit the expansion of this industry in the future. The worldwide change from Group I base oils to Groups II and III shows several development opportunities for industry players. The demand for synthetic hydraulic oils or environmentally friendly hydraulic fluids has increased due to depleting crude oil levels and an emphasis on protecting the environment. These oils are used in various end-use industries, such as aviation, manufacturing, construction, and the automotive industry. Hydraulic fluids transfer power; lubricate; prevent corrosion and wear of machines; and act as a means of heat transfer. The rapid industrialization and mechanization of industries are stimulating the demand for hydraulic fluids, which stimulates the global base oil market.
