Global Grease Market Size, Segments, Outlook, and Revenue Forecast Report 2022: A $7 Billion Market by 2028 Featuring Specialist Companies Such as Exxon Mobil, Chevron, and Castro -

The "Global Grease Market Size, Segments, Outlook, and Revenue Forecast 2022-2028 by Thickener, Base Oil, End-User, and Major Region" report has been added to's offering.

The Global Grease Market is expected to record a CAGR of ~5% during the forecast period (2022-2028). The market was to be the size of US$4 billion in 2017 and US$5 billion in 2021.

Further, the market is forecasted to reach a size of US$7 billion by 2028. Increased automation in multiple industries and rising demand from the automotive sector is a driving factor for the grease market.

Rising demand from the automotive sector is one of the key factors driving the grease market. Grease is used in vehicles for suspension, chassis, arm-shafts, u-joints, and others. As per the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA), an organization working in the interest of vehicle manufacturer and assemblers, stated that vehicle production increased by 3% from 2020 to 2021 after declining by 13% from 2019 to 2020. Automotive is the largest end-user of grease, increasing demand for vehicles will directly help the grease market to rise.

The grease used in heavy equipment, wind power, aerospace, and food industry is specifically manufactured and graded by companies. As per International Air Transportation Association (IATA), a trade association for the world's airlines, mentioned in the fact sheet for June 2022, cargo aerospace revenue is US$ 100.08 billion and is estimated to grow by US$191 billion from 2019 to 2022. Aviation grease is used for multipurpose such as landing wheel assemblies, screw jacks, servo devices, and others, positive growth in the aerospace industry certainly helps to grow the grease market.

Environmental concern is one of the major challenges for the grease market as waste material is discharged to the nearby waterbodies. For instance, the Lubricating Oil and Greases Order, 1987 is an act passed in India which overlooks the restrictions imposed on the processing and storing of greases and lubricating oils. Act also gives the power to the Central Government to issue directions regarding the search and seizure of the manufacturing plant.

Covid19 has slowed down the growth of the grease market. Disruption in the supply chain, temporary shutdown of manufacturing plants, and reduction in vehicle traffic globally, were all those factors that reduce the use of grease in the market.

According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), a USA-based organization that promotes global economic growth and financial stability, provided in the growth projection released in April 2022, global economic growth is projected to slow from an estimated 6.1% in 2021 to 3.6% in 2022 and 2023. Declining economic growth will directly impact the chemical, construction, automotive, and other industries.
