The market for mineral oil is driven by demand from Asia-Pacific and Europe. The mineral oil marine lubricants market in North America and Central & South America will register a low growth rate due to the slow economic growth and strict marine laws.
The main function of the lubricating oil is to help in the formation of thick film of oil in between the moving parts of the machinery, which reduces the wear and friction in between the moving parts of engine. There are two types of oils used in the ship/vessel, cylinder oil and system oil. Lesser maintenance cost and longer running time for different vessels are generating huge demand for engine oil across the shipping industry.
Asia-Pacific will be the largest market for marine lubricants, as this region has the busiest ports among all other regions. The maximum trade is accounted from the ports of China, Hong Kong, Singapore, and South Korea, resulting in high demand for marine lubricants in these countries. The trade from the ports of these countries is increasing and it will catalyze the demand for marine lubricants for proper maintenance of cargo, tankers and other types of ships.
