Synthetic Lubricants Functional Fluids Market in the US - Demand and Sales Forecasts, Market Share, Market Size, Market Leaders

Synthetic Lubricants Functional Fluids Market in the US - Industry Market Research, Market Share, Market Size, Sales, Demand Forecast, Market Leaders, Company Profiles, Industry Trends

Demand for synthetic lubricants and functional fluids in the US will rise 5.5 percent per year to $5.7 billion in 2020. Engine oils will continue to comprise the largest product category and will undergo the most rapid change, mainly in synthetic engine oils for the light vehicle market, which is shifting toward very low viscosities in new vehicles based on automaker recommendations. Demand growth for Group III oils will exceed other synthetic basestocks due largely to their strength in the engine oils segment.

This Freedonia industry study assesses the $4.3 billion US market for synthetic lubricants and functional fluids. It presents historical demand data plus forecasts for 2020 and 2025 by product, material, and market. The study also analyzes company market share and offers competitive analysis on industry players such as AMSOIL,BP, Chevron, Dow Chemical, Eastman Chemical, Exxon Mobil, Old World Industries, Prestone Products, Shell and Valvoline.
