Base oil refers to a blend stock aiding in formulating numerous lubricating oils that are used in engines and other machinery. It is produced by extracting and treating high-viscosity material from narrow distillation cuts of vacuum gasoil (VGO) or residue, which requires special processing through different units.

It helps create a thin film for enhancing heat transfer and reducing tension between moving parts. At present, there is a significant rise in the utilization of lubricants in automobile and truck engines, which in turn, is positively influencing the requirement of base oil across the globe.

Nowadays, base oils find extensive applications in greases and transmission and gear lubricants. This, in confluence with the increasing utilization of hydraulic oil in the automotive industry and rising sales of automobiles, represents one of the key factors propelling the growth of the market.

Moreover, base oils are generally made from crude oil, a non-renewable resource that produces greenhouse gases (GHGs) and causes damage to the environment. As a result, other alternatives for base oils are being researched and implemented in newer engine oil products, such as bio-olefins, which are derived from renewable resources like biomass.

Besides this, vegetable oils are increasingly being utilized as base oils in lubricants instead of mineral oils as they offer numerous advantages. These include nontoxicity, biodegradability, resource renewability, affordable application cost, and high viscosity index. In addition, vegetable oils are cheaper than ester-based oils and provide more potential for the successful implementation as lubricants in base oils. This, along with the rising sales of cars around the world, is projected to drive the market in the upcoming years.
