According to Bekryl Market Analyst: As per the estimates, marine lubricants accounted for 7.9% of total lubricant sales in 2018. Companies are focusing on offering Eco-friendly lubricants to comply with regulatory standards. Over 40% of lubricants emit pollution, which is a major cause of concern among regulatory bodies. There are over 1,600 prominent lubricant manufacturers operational worldwide, however, less than 130 are in marine lubricant manufacturing. Top 10 players accounted for 73% of global revenue share.
Growth In the industry is primarily attributed to high trade flow via sea routes. According to UNCTAD, world seaborne trade reached 10.3 billion tons in 2016, and since then is registering upward trajectory growth. The growth momentum is expected to continue throughout the forecast period. This growth momentum is expected to drive the demand for marine lubricants worldwide. Tourism and recreational activities has also propelled market to witness significant growth during the forecast period. Other factors such as offshore drilling add extra inputs to demand for such lubricants.
