Global Slideway Oil Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4% during the forecast period 2021-2027. Industrial machinery maintenance to minimize operational costs has led manufacturers to adopt preventive maintenance as opposed to breakdown repairs. Slideway lubricants such as processing, industrial, and metal working fluids are expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period on account of rising machinery demand from various downstream industries including automotive and food & beverage.
The product possesses extreme pressure handling and anti-slip properties. It exhibits resistance to rusting, oxidation, and foaming and is preferred for cold heading applications. It aids in increasing machinery shelf life and its efficiency, thus reducing downtime. It has been reported that oil consumption reduces by up to two-thirds of a fraction of slideway applications, due to its good adhesion properties. Stringent regulations by various agencies including REACH, EPA, and EU coupled with fluctuating raw material prices are expected to challenge industry growth over the next seven years. Additionally, other industry challenges associated with product usage include dealing with contamination primarily from metalworking fluids and water-based coolants. Moreover, various players present in the industrial sector are endeavoring to overcome frictional challenges by resistance and shuddering. This is expected to have a positive impact on product industry growth over the next seven years.
Rapid industrialization across the globe, rising usages of the product due to properties such as corrosion, lubrication and anti-wear property, growing applications from machine, hydraulic system, and automobile, increasing shelf life of the machinery and efficiency are some of the major and important factors which will likely to uplift he growth of the slideway oil market in the forecast period of 2020-2027. On the other hand, the increasing number of technological advancement along with availability of regulation compliant product which will further create abundant opportunities that will led to the growth of the slideway oil market in the above mentioned forecast period. Growing investment interest in machining technology, alongside the strong demand for automated manufacturing across the industrial sector, are the key factors characterizing slideway oil market trends over 2021-2027. This strong emphasis on machining technology is likely to contribute to the rising product popularity, given the use of slideway lubricant oils in varied industrial machines, typically those used in industrial metalworking machinery and equipment. Additionally, a significant increase in retail sales of automobiles will also positively influence market outlook, as this oil can be utilized for the lubrication of automotive Conveyer belt, among other applications.Technological proliferations have led to the emergence of ISOVG 68, ISO VG 100, ISO VG 32 and ISO VG 220. These products grades exhibit different viscosities which makes them applicable in various sectors. Owing to the increasing use of horizontal slideways, ISO VG 68 is widely adopted worldwide. Large machines prominently utilize the product for circulating applications. Due to high lubrication properties, this technology is extensively employed as moderate duty hydraulic fluid and used in manufacturing gear oil. High pressure and precision working conditions essentially deploy ISO VG 220 which is anticipated to grow at CAGR of more than 5% over the next eight years. Inclined and vertical slide way also use ISO VG 220 to overcome the drain down problem, thereby contributing to the overall market growth.
Volatility in the prices of raw material along with increasing number of government regulations which will likely to impede the growth of the slideway oil market in the above mentioned forecast period. Easy availability of bio-based substitute along with coping with pollution from metalworking fluids and water-based coolants which will become the biggest and foremost challenge in the growth of the market.
Asia-Pacific dominates the slideway oil market due to the advancement in road as well as rail network along with surging levels of investment on infrastructural development and rapid industrialization. North America region is expected to hold the largest growth rate due to the increasing need of machinery in various end-use industries such as automotive, construction, food and beverages. Growing automotive production in Indonesia, Japan, India, South Korea, Malaysia, Taiwan and China is anticipated to increase the regional demand. Advancements in road & rail network and rapid economic growth coupled with increasing government spending on infrastructural developments may further catapult the industry growth over the forecast period. India is anticipated to witness high demand for product owing to increasing industrialization along with government support for vehicle manufacturing. Emerging consumer needs for personal & commercial conveyance has led to the increasing demand for components and vehicle production which in turn may propel the product demand.
The ongoing coronavirus pandemic and the resulting lockdowns in numerous countries worldwide have had a severe impact across the industrial spectrum, particularly manufacturing and production. The consumption of machine tools, for instance, took a significant dive during peak of the pandemic, as demand fell due to widespread business closures. These factors hampered the slideway oil industry share, given the significant adoption of the product to lubricate machine tool tables, feed mechanisms, and tables. However, the steady recovery of auto sales, following disruptions induced by the second wave of the pandemic, may help gradually improve demand for slideway oils in automotive production applications.
