Biolubricants market in the US: Reduction in crude oil dependence
Biolubricants are replacing synthetic lubricants in various applications. Plant-based products such as soybean, rapeseed, and canola are used for producing biolubricants. Petroleum-based lubricants are mainly produced from crude oil. Fluctuations in crude oil prices lead to volatility in raw material prices, which further leads to volatility in the price of mineral lubricants.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for research on specialty chemicals, “Synthetic esters, polyalphaolefin, phosphate esters, glycols, and other silicate esters obtained from petroleum are the major sources of petroleum-based lubricants. High-performance benefits, biodegradability, and non-toxicity of biolubricants are the key reasons for the preference of biolubricants over crude oil-based lubricants.”
