Pune, India, Jan. 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global bio-lubricants market size is projected to reach USD 4,514.5 million by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.8% during the forecast period. Soaring demand for electric vehicles (EVs) worldwide will create unique opportunities for players in this market, observes Fortune Business Insights™ in its report, titled Bio lubricants Market Size, Share & Covid-19 Impact Analysis, By Application (Hydraulic Fluids, Metalworking Fluids, Chainsaw Oils, Mold Release Agents, Two-Cycle Engine Oils, Gear Oils, Greases, and Others), By End-use Industry (Automotive and Other Transportation, Metalworking, Mining, Forestry, Marine, Engines, and Others), and Regional Forecast, 2020-2027”.

As per recent data and analysis released by the International Energy Agency (IEA), 2.1 million electric cars were sold across the globe in 2019, taking the global EV stock to 7.2 million. Electric car sales, the IEA highlights, accounted for 2.6% of the global car sales, and even amid the coronavirus pandemic, the IEA predicts that EVs will hold a 3% share in the overall car sales worldwide in 2020. Bio-lubricants are expected to play a critical role in augmenting the eco-friendly quotient of EVs. Bio-based compounds, such as polyalkylene glycols and saturated esters, have proven to be highly effective as lubricants, even more so than conventional mineral oil-based lubricants. The increasing intensity towards achieving sustainable mobility is, therefore, foreseen to drive the dynamics of this market over the next decade.

Restraining Factor

Stalled Automotive Production amid COVID-19 to Hamper Market Growth

The COVID-19 pandemic has led to a severe and unprecedented downturn in the automotive industry. Lockdowns, social distancing, and strict government regulations on the movement of people and materials have forced auto companies to shut down production and sales operations. For example, in March 2020, the French automotive giant, PSA Group, announced the closure of a dozen of its plants across Europe.

Similarly, Fiat Chrysler halted production at most of plants in Europe, with temporary shutdown of its facilities in Serbia, Italy, and Poland. The demand for vehicles has also had to deal with multiple shocks across regions as employees swiftly adopted work from home measures. For example, the Oxford Business Group found that light vehicle year-on-year sales in China contracted by a historic 79.1% in February, while in Europe the decline was by 44% in March. The pandemic is, thus, restraining the bio-lubricants market growth as these materials are extensively used in the automotive industry and contracting activities of this industry will inevitably affect markets associated with it.
