How Opportunistic are Growth Prospects across North America?

Based on geography, the North American construction lubricants market is likely to expand at a CAGR of about 2% throughout the projection period. Rising demand from construction and power generation industries laterally with snowballing demand for high-performance lubricants are propelling the market.

On the contrary, the escalating number of electrical & hybrid vehicles, upsurge in the lifetime of lubricants, and rigorous environmental regulations linked with unfavourable conditions arising owing to the COVID-19 epidemic are clogging the market growth.

The United States is likely to maintain the status quo in the construction lubricants market with the largest consumption in the North American region. Fact.MR estimates that the projected value for construction lubricants in North America is likely to reach US$ 4.4 Billion by 2032 end.

Why are Construction Lubricants Providers Venturing into APAC?

APAC is likely to emerge as a highly attractive market for construction lubricants, driven by rapid industrialization across developing economies in the region. In addition, increasing government, as well as foreign investments apropos of the construction activities, is further underpinning the growth of the East Asia construction lubricants market. The APAC construction lubricants market is projected to cultivate to US$ 2 Billion by 2032 at a CAGR of 2%.

In 2021, Asia-Pacific clutched a significant proportion of the global construction lubricants market in terms of consumption. Over the last 5 years, domestic and international investment in the construction industry in Asia-Pacific has sluggishly increased.

Which Product Type is Most Preferred in the Construction Lubricants Market?

According to the Fact.MR’s report, synthetic oil will continue to be preferred over mineral oil, with global sales estimated to exceed 3,300 KT in 2019. In terms of base oil, the synthetic oil segment held nearly 2/3rd share in 2021.

Marked preferences for synthetic oil are on account of its superior performance capabilities and higher drain intervals. Stringent emission norms & regulations are also driving demand for synthetic oils. The global synthetic lubricants market is expected to nurture at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.3% to surpass US$ 7 Billion over the assessment period.

Based on Equipment Type, which Construction Lubricants Segment is expected to dominate?

Fact.MR’s study finds that backhoe loaders account for larger sales of construction lubricants, as they entail relatively greater fleet maintenance requirements than other construction equipment. Soaring investments in infrastructure by several governments are projected to drive the sales of backhoe loaders across the world.

There are also initiatives ongoing to restructure procedures and policies around infrastructure investment which should kindle the segment further, as should novel funding initiatives. The backhoe segment is estimated to witness moderate growth in the forthcoming years; backed by an upward trend of house renovations and a boom in residential building construction.
