High-performance lubricants consisting polyalphaolefins and other materials are often used in mud pumps, fracking, oil drilling, and natural gas operations in the oil and gas sector. The oil and gas industry is expanding rapidly as a result of increased oil and gas production and exploration activities, rising crude oil and natural gas consumption.

According to The Indian Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), India's crude oil consumption will increase at an anticipated CAGR of 4.6% to 500 MMTPA by the year 2040. The need for High-Performance Lubricants for key applications in the rigging, oil wells, and other areas of the oil and gas sector is increasing as a result of the industry's strong expansion and escalating exploration operations. The market for high-performance lubricants has been spurred by the booming demand from the oil and gas sector, which is also providing significant opportunities for growth.

Significant market traction for investment in the Building and construction sector to augment the growth of High-Performance Lubricants.

High-Performance Lubricants, which include hydraulic fluids, engine oil, compressor oils, and others, are produced by polyalphaolefins and others have numerous applications for industrial construction equipment, residential construction sites, and commercial Machineries like excavators, bulldozers, lift trucks, and scrapers as well as commercial machinery, residential sites, and others.

The construction industry is expanding quickly as a result of the rapid expansion and development of building and construction projects throughout the world. The government's increased investments in housing programs, infrastructure development projects, and burgeoning residential construction operations are all drivers of the industry’s tremendous growth. According to the United States Census Bureau, the first three months of 2022 witnessed US$376.6 billion in construction expenditure, an increase of 12% over the same time in 2021. Due to the worldwide expansion and development of building and construction projects, the construction sector is growing swiftly. Due to the rising need for High-Performance Lubricants for various applications in machinery and construction equipment, the market for High-Performance Lubricants is being driven by this demand and is experiencing substantial expansion.

Volatility in crude oil prices to slump the demand for High-Performance Lubricants

Synthetic base oil is produced using crude oil. Fluctuation in the price of crude oil is a serious issue since they constrain market usage and limit production. According to projections from the USA Energy Information Administration (EIA), a barrel of crude oil costs a refiner US$ 55.83 in May 2019, US$ 20.04 in May 2020, US$ 42.64 in January 2021, and US$ 62.51 in October 2021. which signifies the price volatility of crude oil which has a substantial impact on the production and cost of base oil, which shifts the financial strain to the final product. As a result, the High-Performance Lubricants sector is experiencing a downturn and serious difficulties.
