Construction Lubricants Market Overview


The construction lubricants market was worth a little over USD 13 million in 2018 and could record a growth rate of more than 4% between 2022 and 2030.


The construction lubricants market is primarily fueled by the soaring construction sector in Asia Pacific and the Middle East & Africa. Given the strong industrial growth in Asia over the years, several countries in the region are attracting large-scale investments in the cement, construction, energy, and steel industries. The increasing robustness of the construction sector in the Middle East is due to the surging purchasing prowess of the consumers, which will raise the demand for construction lubricants. This has led to higher real estate transactions in the region, especially in Dubai and Abu Dhabi where the focus on construction activities is significantly high. Qatar can expect to be the fastest-emerging country within the construction industry, thereby emerging as a promising market for construction lubricants.


Restraints


Technological Advances to Work Against the Construction Lubricants Market


Compact and portable machinery is increasingly being used in the construction industry. In view of reduced hydraulic and gearbox equipment size and the long drain intervals, the consumption of lubricants in construction has decreased.


Construction industries are increasingly deploying new technologies such as optimizing the re-lube interval, proactive lubricant life extension, reducing package waste and reducing leakage for minimized use of lubricants Such technological innovations in construction could mean a decline in the demand and use of lubricants.


Opportunities


Product Innovation


The market demand is high due to the booming sales of construction lubricants that are low priced and cater to all the standards mandated worldwide. Construction equipment are constantly exposed to dust and high temperature, therefore; end-users are looking for long lasting quality lubricants. Hence, the soaring demand for innovative products will mean a rise in product innovation, which will offer attractive opportunities in the next few years.


Regional Analysis

Asia-Pacific accounted for the largest market share of the construction lubricants market in 2017 due to the increasing infrastructural activities in the developing economies, such as India and South-East Asian countries such as Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia. Also, the booming construction equipment market in the region is expected to fuel the demand for the product in the region.


North America is also expected to be the prominent market for construction lubricants, owing to the expanding construction industry in the region and increasing mining activities, especially in Canada.


The European market is expected to witness moderate growth during the forecast period owing to the increasing construction activities in the Eastern European countries.


The Middle East & Africa market is expected to grow substantially owing to the increasing construction activities in the region. Also, with a proposed investment of USD 2,700 billion across the GCC nations by 2030 is also expected to contribute to the growth of the regional market during the forecast period. The Latin American market is expected to witness healthy growth during the forecast period owing to rapid urbanization and industrialization in the region.

Market Synopsis
Lubricants or lube oils are indispensable to the proper functioning of machinery since they reduce the wear and tear of moving parts. They also reduce the downtime of operations, thereby increasing the overall productivity of machines. Construction lubricants exhibit superior characteristics such as corrosion resistance, demulsibility and provide prolonged life to the construction equipment.


The global demand for construction lubricants is attributed towards the growing construction activities across the globe and subsequent addition of construction equipment to the existing fleet. Lubricants like gear oil, hydraulic oil, engine oil, and grease help in the smooth functioning of the construction equipment and extend their life by eliminating wear and tear, and corrosion. The rise in the construction and mining activities across the globe, especially in the developing economies is expected to propel the demand for construction lubricants. For instance, to cope with the rising population and rapid urbanization, especially, in the emerging economies, new infrastructural developments are being carried out across the globe, for instance, initiatives taken by the Indian government such as Smart Cities Mission, Green Corridor, the building of ports and the Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT) for infrastructure development have led to a rapid increase in construction activities, which is expected to augment the demand for construction lubricants.


In addition, the global construction equipment market is projected to exhibit a CAGR of over 6% during the forecast period. The global construction equipment market stood at over USD 190 billion in 2018, with increasing automation in the construction and mining industries, which is expected to further drive the demand for construction lubricants.


Product trends such as high adoption of synthetic lubricants are further driving the demand. Synthetic lubricants, commonly known as synlubes, consist of base oils and additives and enhance the overall performance of engines. Comparatively, synthetic oils offer superior performance, reduce maintenance costs, and address the environmental challenges posed by using the traditional mineral oil-based lubricants. Thus, the increasing scrutiny on emissions and growing awareness among consumers regarding the perks of synthetic lubes have led to the substantial demand for synthetic lubricants, which is adding to the revenue growth of the global construction lubricants market.


However, the increasing scrutiny on the disposal and recycling of traditional lubricants is expected to hamper the growth of the global market.
