Lubricants Market worth $187.9 billion by 2027 Globally, at a CAGR of 2.7%, says MarketsandMarkets™


Chicago, Aug. 23, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The global Lubricants Market size is projected to reach USD 187.9 billion by 2027 from USD 164.8 billion in 2022, at a CAGR of 2.7% between 2022 and 2027, as per the recent study by MarketsandMarkets™. Lubricants are defined as various compounds like fluids, oils, and greases. Lubrication is an essential process for numerous industries as it helps to reduce the friction between moving parts or surfaces to enhance the efficiency of machines.  

Lubricants are manufactured using base oil, which is categorized as mineral oil, synthetic oil, and bio-based oil. Mineral oil and synthetic oil are sourced from petroleum crude, whereas bio-based oils are sourced from vegetable oil. The primary factor that is driving the global lubricants market is massive industrialization in the developing parts of the world, the increasing disposable income, and rapid urbanization in emerging countries.
