Group IV & V lubricants in this study include lubes externally synthesized by using chemicals such as polyolefin, polyesters, polyglycols and esters. Group IV & V lubricants have been growing at a faster pace than mineral-based lubricants as they are more fuel efficient and can be used in extreme operating conditions. In addition, there has been positive regulatory support for the development of Group IV & V lubricants from various agencies. Group IV & V lubricants are used when equipments require high performance oil as compared to mineral-based oil and when safety and environmental issues need to be met.

Increasing demand from Asia Pacific, the U.S. and the European Union, owing to increasing high-end lubricant applications is expected to drive market demand over the next five years. Engine oils and heat transfer fluids together accounted for 71.5% of the market share in 2011. The development of Group IV & V lubricants has reduced the dependency on mineral oil based lubricants. However, the high cost of synthetic-based (Group IV & V) lubricant is acting as a major challenge for the development of the market.
