Synthetic lubricants can be derived directly from plant as well as animal sources. Animal-based adhesives are derived from organic sources, such as the casein (milk protein), collagen (gelatin), and hide-based animal glues (bovine & porcine hides). Plant-based adhesives are natural adhesives that are derived from organic sources, such as soy protein and starch (dextrin).

Based on type, the synthetic lubricants market is segmented as PAOs, PAGs, esters, and group III. PAOs was the largest segment in global synthetic lubricants market, in terms of value, in 2022. When compared to traditional mineral oils, PAOs often have a high viscosity index, which means that their viscosity varies less with temperature. Due to this characteristic, PAO-based lubricants function better at extremely hot or cold temperatures by maintaining constant viscosity and lubricating qualities throughout a broad temperature range. Compressor oil is projected to grow at highest CAGR during the forecast period, in terms of value. Synthetic compressor oils are commonly used in air compressors, which are widely used in automotive repair shops, manufacturing plants, construction sites, and other industrial applications. Synthetic compressor oils help to reduce friction, wear, and heat generation in air compressors, leading to improved efficiency and reliability.

Based on product type, the synthetic lubricants market is segmented as engine oils, hydraulic fluids, metalworking fluids, compressor oils, refrigerant oils, transmission fluids, gear oils, and turbine oils. Engine oil is estimated to be the largest product type for synthetic lubricants market, in terms of value, during the forecast period. Synthetic lubricants are widely used in engine oil formulations across various product types to provide superior performance and protection for modern engines. Synthetic engine oils are formulated using 100% synthetic base oils, such as polyalphaolefins (PAOs) or esters. These oils offer excellent thermal stability, oxidation resistance, and viscosity control, providing superior protection against wear, friction, and deposit formation. Synthetic engine oils are recommended for high-performance engines and demanding driving conditions.
