Market Overview:

The global biodegradable greases market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth of the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for environment-friendly products and the rising awareness about their benefits among consumers. In terms of volume, the global biodegradable greases market is projected to reach 2,811.1 kilotons by 2030 from 1,746.4 kilotons in 2017. Based on type, synthetic greases are expected to lead the global biodegradable greases market with a share of 49% by 2030 owing to their superior properties as compared with other types of biodegradable greases such as mineral oil-based grease and vegetable-based grease.

Product Definition:

A biodegradable grease is a type of lubricant that breaks down naturally over time, as opposed to traditional petrochemical-based greases, which can take years to decompose. Biodegradable greases are often made from plant or animal-based oils and fats and are therefore more environmentally friendly. They are also commonly used in applications where there is a risk of environmental contamination, such as with septic systems.

Global Biodegradable Greases Industry Outlook

Synthetic Greases:

Synthetic greases are the product that is manufactured by the chemical reaction between fatty acids and tallow amines. The result of this reaction is a semi-solid grease which can be used as an lubricant for various applications such as metal working, food processing, textile machines and hydraulic equipment. Synthetic greases have been in use since World War II when they were first developed for military applications to prevent Axis aircraft from gaining access to Allied supplies.

Mineral Oil-Based Greases:

Mineral oil-based greases are used in biodegradable greases to provide high resistance to water, heat and chemicals. These properties make it suitable for use in the automotive industry. Mineral oil-based grease is a kind of petroleum mineral mixture that consists of paraffin waxes and heavy oils which are obtained from crude oil through refining processes.

Application Insights:

The motor vehicle segment led the global biodegradable greases market in 2017 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of XX% over the forecast period. Rising demand for automotive components, including engine oil, transmission fluids, brake fluids and lubricants is expected to drive product demand in this application segment. In addition, stringent environmental regulations regarding waste disposal from manufacturing plants are anticipated to augment industry growth over the coming years.

Non-motor vehicle applications include industrial machinery and equipment such as food processing plants; chemical processing facilities; paper mills; cement production facilities; pulp & paper mills along with other industrial applications such as metal foundry and glass production units that require lubrication for smooth functioning of their machinery or equipment operations without generating any pollution or toxic wastes during its lifecycle.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific was the largest regional market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The growth of this region can be attributed to increasing awareness regarding vehicle maintenance, rising disposable income, and changing lifestyle. Asia Pacific is home to several emerging economies including China, India, Indonesia among others which are witnessing strong economic growth. These countries have a large number of manufacturing facilities for motor vehicles as well as other industrial applications due to which demand for biodegradable greases is likely to increase in near future.

Europe accounted for more than 20% share of global revenue in 2017 owing to growing demand from Germany and U.K.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from end-use industries: The biodegradable greases market is witnessing a significant growth due to the increasing demand from various end-use industries, such as automotive, food and beverage, metalworking, and others.
  • Rising environmental concerns: The growing awareness about the environment has led to an increase in the adoption of biodegradable greases across various applications. This is owing to their ability to decompose naturally without leaving any harmful residue behind.
  • Technological advancements: The development of new technologies for manufacturing biodegradable greases is propelling the growth of this market globally. These technological advancements are helping manufacturers produce high-quality products that can be used in a variety of applications with ease.
