Introduction of airliners powered by new engines, particularly designed to curb fuel burn and emissions, has led to a demand uptick for equally new generation of aviation lubricants. New jet engines run faster, hotter, and are bigger in size, stressing aviation lubricants like never before. This has been fuelling demand for high thermal stability lubricants. Driven by these factors, the aviation lubricants market is forecast to rise at a steady pace. Fact.MR, in a new study, has projected the aviation lubricants market to surge at a 5% CAGR from 2020 and 2030.
Thanks to lowering airfares, air passenger traffic is poised to increase consistently. Steered by this, the aviation industry has been seeking out technologies that will allow them to cover greater distance with the same amount of fuel. Consequently, demand for lubricants that ensure greater fuel efficiency is set to increase.
Increase in Air Traffic Boosting Growth
According to the International Civil Aviation Organization, in 2018, nearly 4.3 billion passengers opted for air transport for their business tourism, travel plans, or simply to fly between cities and countries. The yearly total number of passengers choosing air transport has been surging at a steady pace. Increase in air traffic due to the rapidly growing aviation industry is fuelling demand for various kinds of aviation lubricants such as engine oils, hydraulic fluids, greases, and others all over the world.
Aviation lubricants are highly efficient in providing a fluid barrier between the moving parts of aircraft such as business jets & turboprop planes, large commercial jets, helicopters, defense aircraft, and others. They also help in preventing friction and wear & tear. Spurred by these factors, the aviation lubricants market will witness growth at a positive rate through the forecast period.
Aviation Lubricants Market Insights by Aircraft
Large commercial jets have emerged dominant among aircraft. With expansion of the civil aviation sector, demand for large commercial jets is set to increase. These aircraft are used for transporting goods. Besides this, commercial jets are also used for passenger flights from one location to another. Increasing number of aircraft passengers in high potential markets such as India and China will particularly aid in expansion of the segment. People in these countries have become more willing to spend on comfortable and faster modes of travel. Resultantly, growth witnessed in the large commercial jets segment will fuel demand for aviation lubricants over the coming years.
Aviation Lubricants Market Insights by Type
Presently, semi-synthetic & synthetic oils are leading in terms of type. These oils are preferred in the aviation industry due to their excellent low- and high-temperature viscosity performance. These types of oils are widely used as a substitute for petroleum-refined oils, and can resist extreme temperatures. Synthetic oils also offer better resistance to oil sludge problems, and offer protection against thermal breakdown, oxidation, and others problems, which is why they are highly preferred for use in aircraft jet engines.
As per the recent study by Fact.MR, demand for mineral oils and bio-based oils too is expected to rise over the forecast period. Rising environmental concerns are expected to fuel demand for bio-based oils over the coming years, thereby aiding the expansion of the aviation lubricants market size.
Aviation Lubricants Market Insights by Product
Engine oils have been in high demand among the aviation lubricants available in the market. A good quality engine oil helps in improving fuel performance and efficiency, ensures maximum engine life, cleaner engine, and has various other advantages that are very crucial in operating diverse types of aircraft, from helicopters to piston engine aircraft.
