Growth Drivers

Increasing Passenger Traffic Across The Globe

The aviation lubricants market was growing as the passenger traffic was increasing, but currently the industry is at a halt due to COVID- 19. Once the pandemic is over, an increase in the aviation business is anticipated and that is predicted to boost the aviation lubricants market as well. The demand for imports and exports will rise in the future, which are further anticipated to aid in the market growth.


The aviation lubricants market keeps on evolving as new needs arise as a result of the advancements in aircrafts and their models. This acts as an opportunity for the lubricant market to innovate and provide advanced lubricants to cater to the problems that the engines face, for instance, the heating up of engines. The aviation lubricants market is fragmented as different lubricants are required for different engine types. Hence, the market has a lot of potential to expand and grow.


As the aviation industry is presently at a halt due to lockdowns and ban on imports and exports, the supporting markets such as aviation lubricants market are also facing the harsh effects. If the pandemic lasts longer than it is anticipated, the market is predicted to face huge losses.

Market Size And Forecast

The aviation lubricant market is a small part of the aviation market, but it is a significant one. The market is anticipated to grow at a substantial CAGR during the forecast period, i.e. 2020-2028. This can be expected only if the aviation business starts again, since currently due to COVID- 19, the aviation industry is experiencing huge losses. The aviation lubricant market is segmented by lubricant type, by aviation type, by technology, by application, by end- user, and by region. By aviation type, the market is segmented into general aviation, commercial aviation, military aviation and helicopters, out of which, the segment for commercial aviation is anticipated to hold the leading market share on account of high number of commercial flights operating daily globally for transporting passengers as well as cargo.

The current pandemic has impacted the share prices of airlines by 25%, according to IATA. Moreover, according to the forecast done by IATA, the revenue loss for passenger business in light of “limited spread” is expected to be around USD 63 billion and in the case of “extensive spread” is around USD 133 billion. The extensive spread will intensely harm the market as compared to the limited spread case. Airlines being side-lined and not in use has negatively affected the lubricant industry as well. The aviation lubricant market is a supporting market for the aviation industry. Hence, the direct impact can be seen on the lubricant market. The market will pick up the pace after the pandemic gets over, but in the present year, the market is not doing well.

In 2023, market players might incur losses due to huge gap in currency translation followed by contracting revenues, shrinking profit margins & cost pressure on logistics and supply chain.
Controlling Inflation has become the first priority for global economies from last quarter of 2022 and to be followed in 2023. With skewed economic situations, rise in interest rate by governments to control spending and inflation, spiked oil and gas prices, high inflation, geo-political issues including U.S. & China trade war, Russia-Ukraine conflict to intensify the global economic issues.
The interest rates in the U.S. may be less sensitive in 2023 as compared to 2022; sigh of relief for businesses.
