Global plant-based lubricants industry, in particular, is as yet in a nascent stage, though emergent regulatory impacts on lubricants offer the potential for increasing the consumption of biolubricants over the coming decade. Regulatory actions from the United States government have already specified a minimum renewable content for a range of product categories, with the US Air Force also coming forward in supporting the use of plant-derived bio-based products as a fundamental and strategic approach to national security.
Chemical registration policies in the European Union, the United States and China would also play a crucial role in incentivizing greater adoption of biolubricants. Legislations related to emissions and the constantly increasing oil change intervals that reduce unit volumes could be viewed as challenges and restraints for the biolubricants market. While the historic price levels of refined vegetable oils have been considerably higher compared to traditional petroleum base stocks, the recent years have witnessed a narrowing down of this price differential. This trend augurs well for the future, when price increases in petroleum base oils would become a significant driver that would increase the cost competitiveness of vegetable-based base oils in the formulation of lubricants.
