ALBANY, New York, August 25, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

While the global demand for base oils is anticipated to rise by 2020, the value of the base oil market is likely to witness a slump, according to Transparency Market Research. In a report titled "Base Oil Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2015 - 2020", Transparency Market Research states that the demand for base oil was pegged at 36,614.3 kilo tons in 2014 and is anticipated to rise to 39,614.7 kilo tons by 2020, developing at a 1.4% CAGR during that period. However, in terms of value, the global base oil market is projected to drop from US$34,514.1 million in 2014 to US$30,973.1 million by 2020.The global base oil market is driven by the development of the automotive industry around the world and the resultant demand for finished lubricants, rapid industrialization in developing countries, and rigid emission standards. In contrast, diminishing crude oil prices and shift by refiners to heavy, sour crude oil are likely to restrict the growth of the base oil market.

On the basis of product type, the base oil market is segmented into Group I, Group II, and Group III.

However, certain grades of Group I such as Bright Stock will continue their popular streak in regions such as South America, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East. As emission standards get more rigid, the demand for high quality lubricants especially in the automotive sector are likely to rise, making Group III the most preferred base stock for the manufacturing of finished lubricants.
