Growth Factors

 The growth is majorly driven by rising demand from end-use industries and rising awareness for sustainable alternatives over petrochemical feedstock such as bio-based products coupled with expanding the food and beverages industry.

Bio-based lubricants have registered comparatively slower market growth in the past couple of decades due to their limited application scope, poor public image, higher prices, performance shortcomings, and more. However, with increased supply of high-performance, technologically advanced, cost-competitive lubricating products based on petroleum-based feedstock’s, synthetic bio-based formulations, the demand for bio-based products is picking up pace and is likely to achieve the highest growth rate over the coming years.

Report Highlights

The mineral product segment dominated the market for food-grade lubricants and held for the highest revenue share of more than 62.0% in 2020. Mineral food grade lubricant is preferred for machinery like hydraulic systems that operate at temperatures between 120°F to 150°F. The demand for mineral-based lubricants among various applications including food, beverage, cosmetic, and others is anticipated to maintain its dominance owing to its low cost.

The synthetic-based lubricants emerged as the second-largest product segment in terms of both volume and revenue in 2020. Synthetic lubricants are preferred for high performance in both extreme low and high temperatures. These products are non-toxic, odorless, colorless, and tasteless. It helps to reduce downtime and better protect metal surfaces from corrosion and wear.  Thus, all the above-mentioned factors together are anticipated to create substantial demand for synthetic product types during the forecast period.

The food application segment dominated the market for food-grade lubricants and accounted for the largest revenue share of 62.2% in 2020. Its high share is attributable to increased consumption of the product in bakery, confectionery, dairy, meat, poultry and seafood, sauces and dressings, and others applications.

The beverage segment includes the consumption of the product in Carbonated Soft Drinks (CSD), fruit beverages, functional beverages, sports drinks, alcoholic beverages, and other applications. A significant rise in demand for alcoholic beverages from the millennial population across the globe is substantially propelling the demand for alcoholic beverages.

These are expected to gain high recognition owing to increasing demand for natural/environment-friendly lubricating products in the food and beverages and cosmetics industry. The bio-based lubricant segment is poised to ascend at the fastest CAGR of 9.9%, in terms of revenue, from 2021 to 2030.

The food application segment dominated the market for food-grade lubricants and accounted for the largest revenue share of 62.6% in 2020. Its high share is attributable to increased consumption of the product in bakery, confectionery, dairy, meat, poultry and seafood, sauces and dressings, and others applications. 

Europe dominated the food grade lubricants market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 42.0% in 2020. The region is anticipated to witness a CAGR of 7.3% from 2021 to 2028. Stringent EPA and REACH regulations in most parts of Europe have prompted manufacturers to shift their focus towards developing bio-based lubricants. Increasing penetration of bio-based alternatives is expected to remain a major threat to mineral-based product growth in the region.

In North America, demand for food-grade lubricants is mainly driven by the massive industrialization in Mexico. Mexico has emerged as a major manufacturing hub since the last decade. Mexico is gaining attention as a new growth market following the footprints of BRICs markets. It continues to experience stable growth centered on the food and beverage industry.
