The demand for lubricants is driven by the growth in major end-use industries, especially marine and aerospace. However, the consumption was dominated by the industrial and automotive sectors together contributing to a market share of 93.1% in 2019.

Aerospace lubricants are projected to lead the growth as they provide long-lasting lubrication for various components and increase reliability, in order to operate efficiently in extreme temperatures and high vacuum.The aerospace components have high maintenance due to the increasing regulatory interventions, owing to their ability to carry a large number of people.

In addition, aircraft are gaining high demand from the defense industry and lubricants are of utmost importance to make these vehicles compliant with specific military standards.The demand for aircraft is projected to witness positive growth due to the rise in defense budgets.

Countries including U.S., India, Germany, and Brazil have made a considerable progress in defense, which is projected to boost the aerospace industry globally.

The aerospace lubricants find significant application in pistons as they reduce over 50.0% of the friction and contribute to better fuel efficiency. The substance also acts as a viscosity improver, sealant, and coolant in engine assemblies. Straight mineral oil with zero dispersants is usually recommended by manufacturers for the first 50-hour break-in period on new or newly overhauled engines.

On the other hand, the marine industry in North America is experiencing a renaissance and has a major contribution to national, economical, and homeland security.The domestic marine transportation industry is a major support for the energy infrastructure with the movement of refining petroleum, crude products, and chemicals, especially after the shale oil revolution.
