Global bio-lubricant market is expected to grow at a steady rate during the forecast period. The global bio-lubricant market is driven by the increasing environmental concerns. Furthermore, supportive government policies facilitating the use of bio-based lubricants and greener and cleaner base oils is expected to spur the market growth over the next few years. Additionally, these bio-lubricants are eco-friendly, renewable, non-toxic in nature, biodegradable, carbon neutral, among others. These factor are in turn expected to positively influence the market growth through 2025. Besides, technological advancements and new product launches by the major players operating in the market is expected to create lucrative opportunities for growth during the forecast period. However, the sudden outbreak of pandemic COVID-19 has led to the shut down in manufacturing and supply of renewables thereby hindering the market growth during the forecast period. Moreover, the high prices of bio-lubricants can further restrict the market growth through 2025.

The global bio-lubricant market is segmented based on base oil, application, end user industry, company and region. Based on base oil, the market can be categorized into vegetable oil, animal fat, synthetic ester and others. The vegetable oil segment is expected to dominate the market since they are highly biodegradable, less toxic, eco-friendly and provide good lubrication. Based on end user industry, the market can be fragmented into automotive, oil & gas, construction, marine, energy & utilities, pharmaceutical, metallurgy and others. The automotive industry is expected to dominate the market owing to the increasing awareness pertaining to fuel efficiency. Additionally, bio-lubricants are highly biodegradable in nature and have low level of bio-accumulation therefore preferred in the automotive industry.

Regionally, the bio-lubricant market has been segmented into various regions including Asia-Pacific, North America, South America, Europe, and Middle East & Africa. Among these regions, North America is expected to dominate the market share in the overall bio-lubricant market owing to the widespread use of bio-lubricants in the automotive industry. Additionally, stringent government regulations pertaining to the use of bio-based lubricants further drive the market growth in the region. 

The major players operating in the bio-lubricant market are ExxonMobil, Royal Dutch Shell, Total S.A., Cargill Inc., BP, FUCHS Group, Panolin AG, Magna Group, Polnox Corporation, Albemarle Corporation and others. Major companies are developing advanced technologies and launching new products to stay competitive in the market. Other competitive strategies include mergers & acquisitions and new product developments. For instance, In March 2020, Royal Dutch Shell announced the expansion of the lubricant production facility located at Marunda Centre, Indonesia.
