Opportunities galore for manufacturers in compressor oil market in parallel with the ‘never-seen-before’ growth of the aftermarket space. As aftermarket has outgrown the phase of being an ‘afterthought’ and is being perceived as a profitable arm of the market, key players operating in the compressor oil market are focused on offering spare parts and enhancing their after-sales service offerings.
End user requirements for lubrication may considerably vary based on the type of compressor and gas, in addition to the environment in which it is used. Manufacturers are, accordingly, vying to showcase a vast portfolio, featuring compressor oils formulated for a range of compressor types, including reciprocating, rotary, dry screw, centrifugal, or sliding vane compressors.
The report opines that end users will continue to show high preference for synthetic compressor oil, followed by the mineral and semi-synthetic variants. Synthetic compressor oil offers unmatched compatibility in comparison to its counterparts and meets the demand for severe service conditions, which is a key reason for it being the top-selling category. Synthetic oil also provides higher storage stability, high efficiency, less wear, enhanced oxidation stability, better film strength, and lower volatility-features that match majority of the lubrication requirements put forth by various end-user applications.
Manufacturers Prioritizing Product Innovations and Strategic Collaborations
Manufacturers are focusing on aggressive and influential marketing tactics across the key countries of Latin America and MEA, wherein the emerging opportunities in these regions could be of greater significance for them. Uninterrupted and consistent supply of certified products continues to be a key cornerstone for manufacturers to retain their market standing. Compressor oil manufacturers are also counting on product innovations as a catalyst for sustained growth in the compressor oil industry, unveils the report. For instance, in June 2019, Total S.A declared the official launch of its newest addition i.e. Planetelf PAG K 40, a high performance lubricant meant for use in automotive air compressors.
