Lubricant is a fluid which is applied in between moving parts in order to reduce the friction, generated heat and wear & tear of machines. There are various functions of lubricants which are reducing the frictional resistance, reduces wear & tear and surface deformation, acts as a coolant, provides protection against corrosion, and improves the efficiency of the machine. There are certain chemicals which improve the properties of lubricants when added in them. These chemicals include anti-oxidants, foam depressants, corrosion inhibitors, detergent dispensers, and oiliness improvers. Lubricants are applied in the equipment through different lubrication methods including oil can, oil gun, grease packing, wick type, bath type, and circulation.
Based on application, the Lubricant Market is segmented into transportation and industrial machinery & equipment. The transportation application segment is estimated to dominate the market during the forecast period due to increasing number of passenger vehicle, commercial vehicle, and growth in the aviation and marine industries.
