6% CAGR of World Biolubricant Market to 2019 Expected

The term biolubricants refers to all lubricants that are nontoxic as well as biodegradable. The rapid depletion of crude oil reserves and issues related to energy conservation and environmental protection have put an emphasis on the development of renewable, biodegradable, and environmentally friendly industrial fluids, such as biolubricants. Biolubricants have a minimum impact on human health and aquatic environment. Lubricants are a key element for industrial and transport applications and more than 95% of the lubricants market is dominated by the low-cost mineral oils. Around 30% of these mineral-based lubricants inevitably end up in the ecosystem and are harmful for environment. Hence, biolubricants being biodegradable are preferred over mineral-based lubricants in terms of environmental safety.

The analysts forecast global biolubricants market to grow at a CAGR of 6.3% over the period 2014-2019.
