Impact Analysis of Covid-19

The complete version of the Report will include the impact of the COVID-19, and anticipated change on the future outlook of the industry, by taking into the account the political, economic, social, and technological parameters.

Definition of Market/Industry:

Marine lubricants are primarily used across the shipping industry in order to protect and improve the efficiency of the equipment and engine. These are high-performance fuel that is specially designed to enhance performance in operations. They exhibit exceptional properties that help in increasing shelf-life and protect the components exposed to high temperatures. They improve the performance and also reliability of the machine by protecting it from wear and tear by eliminating corrosion. Inflatable boats, drill ships, outboard motorboats, tankers, cargo ships, passenger ships, and semi-submerged ships are some of the application areas of the marine lubricants.

The global marine lubricants market is estimated to be valued at US$ 11,185.6 million in 2021 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.1% over the forecast period (2021-2028).

Recent Developments:

  • In December 2020, Gulf Oil International (global lubricant company) announced its plans to acquire lubricant blending plant from Singapore’s Ocean Tankers (marine transportation provider). The lubricant blending plant comes with wharf access, storage tank farm and terminal facility, located in Singapore’s Tuas region. The facility will allow Gulf Oil to invest further in the marine segment and grow its market share in marine lubricants.
  • In August 2021, Wilh. Wilhelmsen Holding ASA (multinational maritime group) entered into a partnership with Klüber Lubrication (U.S. based lubricants manufacturer). Under the partnership Wilhelmsen will exclusively sell and distribute Kluber’s maritime lubricant range.
  • In April 2020, World Fuel Services Corporation (WFS, an energy, commodities, and services company based U.S.) became official distributor for Shell Marine Lubricants in France. With the addition of France, WFS further strengthens its Shell Marine lubricants distribution network, which also includes Gibraltar, Spain, and Argentina.

Europe held dominant position in the global Marine lubricants market in 2020, accounting for 47.1% share in terms of value, followed by Asia Pacific and North America, respectively. Large volume of trade activities and developed infrastructure in the shipping industry are primarily responsible for the high demand of marine lubricants in the region.

Drivers:

Growth in the shipping industry where marine lubricants are widely used is expected to propel the market growth of marine lubricants. According to the Department of Transport and Supply Chain Management (University of Johannesburg, South Africa), the shipping industry is considered as one of the catalysts for the development of an economy that is projected to contribute 90% of world trade. Moreover, continuously evolving marine lubricants along with the new formulation are further expected to accelerate the market growth of marine lubricants.

Increasing seaborne trade around the globe is projected to augment the market growth of the marine lubricants. According to the United Nations, in 2018, developing economies accounted for the largest share of global seaborne trade, both in terms of exports (goods loaded) and imports (goods unloaded). They loaded 59 percent and unloaded 64 percent of the world total. With a volume of 4.2 billion tons loaded and 5.9 billion tons unloaded.

Key Takeaways of the Graph:

  • The engine oils segment held dominant position in the market and accounted for 45.2% share in the global Marine lubricants market in 2020. The segment is expected to reach US$ 7,671.5 million in 2028. Engine oil reduces the excessive friction in the engines of the marine equipment. Excessive friction in the vehicles makes them outdated and out-of-order, which in turn, increased the demand for engine oils.

Market Restraints

Fluctuating prices of crude oil along with the strict rules and regulations is projected to hamper the market growth of the marine lubricants over the forecast period.

The shortage of raw materials such as bright stock materials due to increasing utilization of bright stock material in the production of group II and group III base oils is expected to hinder the market growth of marine lubricants.
