Insights offered in the report:

  1. Motor oil is the largest segment and accounted for a market share of 29.38% in 2021. Higher viscosity indices have improved thermal and oxidative stability and reduced volatility are the characteristics driving the demand for synthetic base oils in engine oil lubrication.
  2. Synthetic automotive and transportation lubricants accounted for 32.20% market share in 2021. The automotive and transportation segment is expected to register a CAGR of 3.76% during the forecast period. Factors driving the demand for synthetic lubricants are prevention of wear, reduction of friction, good heat dissipation, prevention of oxidation and corrosion, reduction of component stress and maintenance of proper engine operation.
  3. Poly alpha olefin is the most popular synthetic base oil. It eliminates many of the disadvantages of mineral oil-based lubricants. PAO-based lubricants do not require viscosity modifiers, have higher flash points and lower volatility, lower pour points and high temperature operability.
  4. Shell (US), ExxonMobil (US), British Petroleum (UK), Chevron (US) and Sinopec (China) are some of the major players in the synthetic lubricants market. The market is largely commoditized, with price serving as an important differentiator. Manufacturers are constantly involved in the development of new and sustainable products according to customer requirements and environmental protection.
