Agricultural Lubricants Market is to Reach 2.48 Billion USD by 2022


The Agricultural Lubricants Market is projected to grow from an estimated USD 1.96 Billion in 2017 to USD 2.48 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 4.8% from 2017 to 2022. The growth of the agricultural lubricants market is driven by the rising mechanization of farms. Farm equipment is being employed to sow, till, and harvest farms, which has resulted in increased yields. Rising population in the Asia Pacific region has necessitated increase in farm production, which in turn, is leading to an increasing demand for agricultural lubricants.

Asia Pacific is expected to witness the highest growth in the agricultural lubricants market

China and India are large consumers of farm tractors, and therefore, agricultural lubricants. Increasing support from governments, combined with increasing labor costs are encouraging farmers to adopt mechanization on a high scale. This, in turn, is expected to lead to the growth of the agricultural lubricants market in the region.


Bio-based lubricants segment is estimated to be the fastest-growing type segment of the agricultural lubricants market

Based on type, the bio-based lubricants segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the agricultural lubricants market in 2017. Use of bio-based lubricants can help control pollution as these are bio-degradable and, hence, can be directly released into the environment. The environment-friendly nature of these lubricants is expected to drive the bio-based lubricants market during the forecast period.
