Calcium Sulfonate Market to Actively Foray into Emerging Consumer Marketplaces D

Posted by Divakar on June 6th, 2018


Calcium Sulfonate is categorized under the category of soap thickener which is primarily used for the formulation of greases and specialties. Greases are generally used in order to enhance the lubrication properties of the moving metal objects or in other words to reduce the friction between the metal surfaces or substrates in order to enhance their operating life.  As the global market place is witnessing technological advancement & tremendous growth in industrial and automotive industry, there is a need of value added greases and specialties that can show increased level of efficacy during their operating life. In bulk machineries and complexes the main industry challenge is to fight against corrosion, oxidation and water. Conventional greases available in the market are restricted to some application areas only and unable to address the industry challenges, in high pressure and high temperature condition these conventional greases lost their efficacy. Calcium sulfonate grease exhibits numerous noteworthy properties over these conventional greases such as high viscosity index, extended range of operating temperature, load carrying & wear protection, thermal & mechanical stability in presence of heat & water, resistance to water and many more. With these above said properties calcium sulfonate greases are gaining traction across the globe. Also Calcium sulfonate greases doesn’t use phosphorus, chlorine, lead, antimony and zinc due to which these calcium sulfonate greases has minimal to zero  impact on environment.

Calcium Sulfonate Market: Drivers and Restraints

There are numerous potential attributes implicit behind the increased consumption of calcium sulfonate such as the grease formulated through calcium sulfonate has better mechanical stability, high load carrying ability, better dropping point and better resistance against water, corrosion and oxidation, Also the expansion of end user industries such as marine, food processing, steel, automotive to name a few is providing numerous growth opportunities for calcium sulfonate manufacturers. In order to provide effective operations in the above said industries the players are demanding calcium sulfonate based greases as a material of choice in their operations.  Market players present in the value chain focus on augmenting their market position through increasing their product portfolio. Also, they are working on to increase their overall production efficiency, reduce the processing cost without compromising on the product quality, which remains a key area of focus for manufacturers. Likewise, government efforts towards driving the industrial growth also fuel the demand of calcium sulfonate greases over the forecast period. However there are some factors who acts as an adoption barrier for the full-fledged adoption of calcium sulfonate in the market such as high cost is incurred during the formulation of calcium sulfonate greases in order to reach desirable properties.
