Lubrication Equipment Market Overview
Lubrication is the method of controlling friction and wear between moving surfaces in contact and it can be provided by introducing the friction reducing film. The lubrication may be fluid, solid or plastic. Lubrication equipment are required since in machine parts often need a constant supply of lubricating fluid such as grease and oil.
Lubricant is a substance that minimises friction, corrosion, wear, excessive heat, and rust. Lubrication helps the equipment to go longer and more effectively and more consistently. Lubrication equipment is an essential component used in industrial applications such as manufacturing processes, assembly and processing.
Lubrication equipment are usually used to control and dissipate metered amount of lubricant to desired areas of applications. There are some examples of machine parts need lubrication include gears, cables, pumps, chains, industrial centrifuges, large blowers, fans and turbines in many industries. The substantial growth in industrialization in the various countries across the globe is fuelling the growth in demand for lubrication equipment.
Advancements in technology have led to development of several controlling and monitoring systems, which assist in proper lubrication of various machineries or units. Lubrication equipment are further enhancing the reliability and performance of lubrication systems by providing lubrication at proper intervals and in correct quantities.
Several methods and processes are employed to lubricate a machine. Lubrication can be carried out by using manual lubrication equipment or centralized/automatic lubrication equipment as well.
Lubrication Equipment Market: Dynamics
The growth of the global lubrication systems market is estimated to be driven by the growing need highly dependable machinery and the effective maintenance of the machinery. Lubrication significantly minimizes exposure to many causes which may result in inherent cost of equipment collapse and failure.
Lubrication equipment are specifically designed to increase up time of machines and vehicles. Lubrication increase the equipment life by reducing friction and wear. Some of the disadvantages of lubrication are poor heat dissipation and poor self-healing properties, limited storage and service life, etc.
Implementation of a lubrication system for specific purpose is reliant on several factors such as operating expenses incurred for manual labor, the number of lubrication points, and frequency of lubrication. Large plants such as steel plants, paper mills, and cement plants make use of automatic or central lubrication system because the number of points for lubrication in all of these plants is quite high, which is expected to drive the growth of the global lubrication equipment market over the coming years.
With the availability of lubrication equipment for lubricating so many points, the time taken to lubricate many machines is reduced. It also assists in the removal of error resulted from manual labor, which is further estimated to proprl the growth of lubrication systems market.
The lubrication industry is a capital-intensive one, which is likely make the threat of new players entering the market much less. However, the competition amongst the existing market players is quite high, which makes the competition in the global lubrication systems market quite intense.
COVID-19 crisis impact
The ongoing COVID-19 crisis has severely affected all the industry verticals in across the globe owing to the nationwide lockdowns implied in almost all the countries across the globe. Resulting in manufacturing plants shutdown, labor unavailability and supply chain disruptions owing to imposed transport regulations.
These have cause a significant dent in the growth of global lubrication equipment market.However, the lubrication equipment market is expected to recover sharply with recovery of global economic growth post the containment of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Lubrication Equipment Market: Regional Outlook
North America is expected to account for highest market share in the global lubrication equipment market during the forecast period. The growth is attributable to substantial growth in the industrial activities in the region.
The countries from Asia Pacific region has witnessed substantial growth in the industrialization in the recent years and the growth is expected to persist over the forecast period subsequently fueling the growth of lubrication equipment market in the region. Furthermore, incorporation of internet of things (IoT) into the facilities of production system is expected to drive the lubrication systems market in Asia Pacific.
Europe is also expected to hold significant share in the lubrication equipment market owing to prevalence of major market participants in the region.
Which trend/ segment to impact more?
Engine oil segment is expected to dominate the lubrication equipment Market. The function of engine oil is creating thin film between the moving parts. In the internal ignition engine the engine oil is widely used and with the composition of 75-90% of base oils and 10-15% of additives. They are mainly used for the applications such as corrosion protection, wear reduction as well as smooth operations of internal engines.
The Lubrication Equipment market is witnessing a substantial growth owing to the increasing demand from different end-use industries. Leading market participants are focusing on developing partnership with regional suppliers and distributors in order to achieve improved channel reach. To comply with the advent of online sale channel, adoption of e-commerce will create extensive opportunities for market participants during the forecast period.
