Moreover, the steady recovery of oil & gas industry from downturn is likely to augment sales in the global compressor oil market. The oil & gas industry was heavily impacted owing to muted demand from end-use industries amid ongoing pandemic. Recovering oil & gas demand owing to return of industrial activity is likely to help global compressor oil market grow during the forecast period.

Compressor oil is a highly formulated refined base oil, which contains relatively high performer additives to promote lubrication in various types of compressors. They are available in four different types on the basis of oil types such as synthetic, bio-based, mineral, and semi-synthetic compressor oils. These are designed to provide a long service life, thermal stability, outstanding oxidation performance, resistance to rust & corrosion, controls foam, and water separation and other benefits.

Thermal stability and oxidation resistance of these oils can help to maintain cleaner compressors, thereby enabling long running periods between scheduled maintenance and oil change. The requirement of compressor oil varies considerably based on the compressor type, the environment in which it is used, and the type of gas that is being compressed. These factors will prove crucial for continued growth of the global compressor oil market.
