Global Base Oil Market Analysis Report 2022-2030: Breakdown by Automotive Oils, Process Oils, & Industrial Oils –

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Base Oil Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report by Product (Group I, Group II, Group III, Group IV, Group V), by Application (Automotive Oils, Process Oils, Industrial Oils), by Region, and Segment Forecasts, 2022-2030” report has been added to’s offering.

The global base oil market size is expected to reach USD 29.9 billion by 2030 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 4.3% from 2022 to 2030

This is attributed to rising demand for base stocks in the automotive and industrial applications. Lubricants are mainly used in gearboxes, lubricants & transmission oils, and diesel engine oils, in various automotive applications including commercial vehicles, motorcycles, and passenger cars. The automotive industry is one of the largest consumers of base oils that are growing at a faster pace.

This industry is currently facing massive shifts in terms of production from group I to group II and III. Although the shift in the sector is gradual, various factors including government directives, feedstock choices, and demand patterns play a major role in propelling the market. Also, key industry participants are expanding their businesses in the Asia Pacific region, owing to the rising industrial and automotive sectors in this region, which can further contribute to group II product demand.

Moreover, base oil manufacturing technologies adopted worldwide would further reinforce the demand for the products to suffice the growing demand for end-use utility productions. Meanwhile, prices and availability of crude oil are anticipated to largely affect the production processes globally.

The turbulence in the sector has had a significant impact on multiple other dependent industries such as base oils, lubricants, and others. Since 2019, the petroleum market has faced critical challenges as vehicle efficiency measures taken by governments worldwide to curb carbon emissions led to lower consumption of transport fuel.

However, the market witnessed a strong presence of key players that competes to dominate the market and to gain a strategic and competitive advantage over the other players.
