The global biolubricants market is driven by strict legislations and regulations followed by different government bodies in different developed and developing countries. Higher pricing is one of the main restraints in the growth of the bio-based lubricants market. A bio-based lubricant is around 1.5 to 2 times costlier than mineral oil lubricant, which makes market penetration a critical issue for the industry. Lack of awareness among people related to the benefits of bio-based lubricants is also a major restraint for the growth of the bio-based lubricants market especially in developing regions.
