Compressor Oil Market by Base Oil, Compressor Type, Application, End-Use Industry - Global Forecast to 2023

/EIN News/ -- Dublin, Feb. 19, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Compressor Oil Market by Base oil, Compressor Type, Application, End-Use Industry - Global Forecast to 2023" report has been added to's offering.

The compressor oil market size is projected to grow from USD 10.1 billion in 2018 to USD 13.2 billion by 2023

Compressor oils are mixtures of base oils and additives. The additives help to enhance, add, or suppress unwanted properties of the base oil. They are usually produced in a liquid or semi-solid state. Compressor oil reduces the heat by carrying it away from the moving surfaces of machinery and cools its components. Some compressor oils are also termed as heat transfer fluids. Compressor oils are utilized to reduce friction between moving surfaces of the compressor.

In addition, compressor oils also help reduce wear and tear of machinery and prevent overheating and corrosion, which increases the efficiency of the machine. Thus, compressor oils play a vital role in the smooth functioning of machinery. They are primarily used in industrial machinery and equipment. There are various types of compressor oils available in the market including synthetic compressor oil, semi-synthetic compressor oil, mineral compressor oil, and biobased compressor oil.

The compressor oil market size was 2,060.0 kilotons in 2017 and is projected to reach 2,750.0 kilotons by 2023, at a CAGR of 5.0% between 2018 and 2023. The growth of the compressor oil market is primarily triggered by the huge demand from the APAC region and developing end-use industries such as general manufacturing, power generation, metal production, oil & gas, food & beverages, and automotive. The liberalization of foreign trade and investments and change in industrial policies have triggered rapid industrialization in China over the past three decades. This is contributing to the increasing demand for compressor oils in the region.

The development of zinc-free (ashless) compressor oil is expected to provide a lucrative growth opportunity for the manufacturers. Zinc, an anti-wear agent in lubricants, is harmful to the environment. Therefore, the manufacturers have to pre-treat lubricants before releasing them into the environment which is an expensive process. However, the growth of the compressor oil market is hampered by technological advancements. The increasing popularity of oil-free compressor is restraining the growth of the compressor oil market.
