Base oils are lubrication grade oils, which are produced either through chemical synthesis or from refining of crude oil. Base oils, which are produced through chemical synthesis are known as synthetic base oils whereas those base oils, which are produced from refining of crude oil are known as mineral base oils. Base oils are mostly used for industrial and lubrication applications.

 

Depending on the nature of chemical structure, base oils can be napthenic or paraffinic. The American Petroleum Institute (API) has categorized base oils into five categories, which include Group I, Group II, Group III, Group IV, and Group V. Group I, Group II, and Group III are refined from petroleum crude whereas Group IV is polyalphaolefin/synthetic oil. Group V of base oils includes biolubes, phosphate esters, polyolester, and polyalkylene glycols (PAGs), among others.

 

Furthermore, due to versatile properties of base oils, they are used in various applications, such as automotive oil, industrial oil, metalworking fluids, hydraulic oil, greases, and others (agriculture, additives, and detergents/dispersants). The European base oil market was valued at USD 8.2 billion in 2014 and is projected to reach USD 8.7 billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 1.3% between 2015 and 2020.

 

Various secondary sources have been referred to, such as encyclopedias, directories, and databases, to identify and collect information useful for this extensive, commercial study of the European base oil market. The primary sources include interviews of the experts from related industries as well as key suppliers to obtain and verify critical information as well as to assess the future prospects of the European base oil market.

 

 

The parent market of base oils is additives. Base oils are used for manufacturing various types of oils, such as motor oil, lubricating greases, and metal processing fluids, among others. Base oils help in reducing volatility of emulsions, thus leading to their stability. Stable emulsions are used for lubricating applications in various industries. Royal Dutch Shell plc, Chevron Corporation, Neste Oil, AVISTA OIL AG, Nynas AB, and PETRONAS, among others are the key players operating in the European base oil market. Automotive oil, industrial oil, metalworking fluids, hydraulic oil, and greases are some of the major applications of base oils.

The European base oil market is estimated to reach USD 8.7 billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 1.3% between 2015 and 2020. Factors, such as growth of various end user industries, along with increase in demand for finished lubricants from various industries are expected to drive the European base oil market during the forecast period, 2015 to 2020.

 

Among applications, the automotive oil segment led the European base oil market in 2014 and is projected to grow during the forecast period as well, owing to increase in the demand for finished lubricant products from various industries. Moreover, continuous increase in the demand for low sulfur-based fuel oils is also expected to contribute towards the growth of this application segment.

 

Among types, Group III segment of the European base oil market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This is due to increase in the consumption of Group III base oils in the European region. Group III base oils are severely hydrocracked and as such, are the purest base oils. Increase in the demand for Group III base oils for various industrial and automotive applications is expected to fuel the growth of the Group III segment of the European base oil market between 2015 and 2020. The Group I segment led the European base oil market in 2014 and accounted for a market share of 47.3%, in terms of volume. Group I base oils have simpler refining process and are the cheapest among all groups of base oils. As such, Group I base oils are extensively used in number of applications. However, with the advancements in technology, Group II and Group III are also being increasingly used in numerous applications.

 

Russia led the European base oil market in 2014 and is expected to continue doing so during the forecast period as well. The base oil market in Russia is projected to grow at the highest CAGR of 2.9% during the forecast period. There is an increase in the usage of base oils in various applications, such as motor oil and lubricant greases in Russia due to continuously growing population and flourishing automotive industry in the country.

High manufacturing cost of base oils is the factor inhibiting the growth of the European base oil market. Manufacturing of base oils requires extensive R&D activities, which in turn, increase the overall cost of the base oils. The European base oil market is highly concentrated and is significantly price sensitive. This is due to less number of participants in this market, owing to high entry barriers, which make it difficult for the new entrants to enter into the market. New product launches, expansions, acquisitions, and research & development are some of the important strategies adopted by the market players to achieve growth in the European base oil market.
