Biodegradable Engine Oil Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis By Types (Vegetable Oils Polyalkylene Glycols, Synthetic Easters, Others), By End-user (Agriculture, Transportation, Construction, Others) And Regional Forecast, 2024-2032

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI105616 | Status : Ongoing



Biodegradable engine oils, also known as bio-lubes and bio-lubricants, are non-toxic and biodegradable lubricants. Organic lubricants are generally made using raw materials such as sunflower oil, palm oil, rapeseed oil, coconut oil, and animal fats. Biodegradation is a process that converts materials that enter the environment or break them down. Using biodegradable sources, such as vegetable oil, biodegradable engine oil is produced. Thus the manufacturers focus on bioaccumulation and eco-toxicity to lower the adverse environmental impacts of engine oil.

Based on types, the market is divided into vegetable oils, polyethylene glycols, synthetic esters, and others. The vegetable oils segment accounts for the highest market share and is estimated to maintain its dominant position throughout the forecast period. Vegetable oils consist of natural esters and triglycerides. They are increasingly being used for bio lubricant development due to their advantageous characteristics such as non-toxicity, renewability, economic & environmental friendliness, and others. 

Based on the end-use industry, the market is segmented into agriculture, transportation, construction, and others. The transportation segment contributes the highest market share due to its large-scale consumption of biodegradable engine oil and is projected to maintain its lead position during the forecast period. In the transportation segment, lubricants are used in heavy vehicles such as lorries, buses, agricultural machines, and marine transport. Construction and transportation industries being fuelled by the factors such as rising population, increased urbanization are expected to lead the market in coming years.

The major market driver for the biodegradable engine oil market is the rise in demand for sustainable and high-performance lubricants. In addition, with the development of the construction sector, the need for heavy machinery lubricants such as wire rope lubricants for penetration and coating, engine oil, diesel fuel, bearing grease is expected to increase over the forecast period.

The factor that is expected to inhibit the growth of the market is the high cost and poor performance of biodegradable engine oil. The downfall in the construction industry due to COVID-19 across various regions further hinders the market growth. In addition, disruptions in raw material procurement, demand-supply gap price volatility, and many other factors are expected to hamper the market’s growth.
