High cost of raw materials

Plant based oils are composed of triglycerides derived from plants; though plant parts may yield oil, for commercial practices, Plant-based oil is essentially derived from the seeds. The costs associated with the manufacturing of base oils mainly depend on the raw material availability, the type of raw material, the strict methods & measures used for extraction and the intended use of the plant for the production of based oil.

In addition, the biofuel guidelines have resulted in a lack of accessibility to soybean and rapeseed oil in U.S. and Europe for food and other industrial applications. Furthermore, the consequential high prices of these prime sources of plant-based oils have resulted in working capital shortages and may hamper market growth.



The recent outbreak of coronavirus had a negative impact on the bio base oil market. The COVID-19 pandemic has harmed the base oil market by reducing consumption oversupply of refined petroleum products and slowing economic development due to various global lockdown measures.

The complete lockdown imposed by the government of various countries worldwide during the pandemic has resulted in supply chain disruptions that significantly hampered the sourcing of feedstocks. Additionally, the factors such as the temporary shutdown of production facilities, the decline in labor force participation and investment withdrawals, followed by norms of social distancing, have adversely affected the market. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has halted more than 80% of North American automobile production. Additionally, a similar situation exists in Europe and Asia Pacific, as the demand for cars and commercial vehicles witnessed a declining growth, thus hampering the overall market growth.

Furthermore, the industrial sector has changed dramatically since December 2019 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has caused extreme economic uncertainty and the early signs of global economic fallout are visible in countries severely affected by the contagion. The market is projected to continue growing at the same pace as the pre-pandemic levels. Moreover, the suspended and canceled operations will continue and as a result, the market is estimated to expand and as a result, the market will flourish over the forecast period.



The global bio base oil market is classified based on type, application and region.

The extensive expansion of the automotive sector provided a lucrative market demand for automotive oils, thus allowing the respective segment to dominate the application segment of the global bio base oils market

In order to reduce friction between the parts of the engine assembly and transmission, automotive oil is used in the transmission chamber and engine of the vehicle. The engine oil’s secondary purpose is to maintain the engine chamber’s temperature and stop oxidation from causing engine parts to rust. These oils are made from petroleum that has undergone additional processing to improve engine oil quality. One of the key factors propelling the growth of the automotive oil market is the global expansion of the automotive industry. Spark plugs are widely used in electrical, marine and aerospace applications, which benefits the market. The market is also influenced by the rising demand for conventional oil, which is more in demand because it is less expensive than modern lubricants. The popularity of synthetic lubricants can be attributed to their superior performance and long-lasting better protection. The automotive oil market is also benefited from the growth of the automotive industry, a surge in investments and rising disposable income.

Engine oils, frequently used to lubricate internal combustion engines, are primarily composed of basic oils (75%–90%) and additives (10%–25%). These additives are widely used in the automotive and other transportation sectors worldwide. Engine oil usage has three main advantages: improved engine performance, protection against corrosion and reduced wear and tear. In order to enhance heat transfer and reduce strain when the moving parts come into contact, these oils work by forming a thin coating between them.

The market is being driven by the quickly expanding automotive production across the globe due to the high demand for affordable and fuel-efficient vehicles and automotive technological advancements. The International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA) estimates that in 2021, automotive production will increase by 3% in China, 12% in Brazil, 30% in India and 4% in U.S. In 2021, vehicle sales were higher across major regions globally. China maintained its position as the world’s largest and best-performing single-country auto market, with sales rising 6.6% to more than 21 million vehicles. The FUCHS expanded its specialty business in June 2021 by acquiring Gleitmo Technik AB’s lubricants division. Its acquisition would increase the company’s customer base, product line and market expansion. A partnership for industrial lubricants in Australia was established under the terms of the MoU, which was signed in November 2020 with PT Pertamina.
