Compressor oil is used for lubrication in various types of compressors to improve and enhance their service life. The product helps to maintain longer running periods and provides excellent resistance to rust and corrosion to protect internal components from surface degradation. Additionally, it resists thermal degradation and oxidation to reduce deposits and coke formation in compressors.
Compressor oil promotes rapid releases of foam and air, thereby protecting components from cavitation and aeration damage. It assists in the reduction of sludge formation in crankcases, coalescers, coolers and discharge lines.
Increasing applications in general manufacturing sector, rapid industrialization, and positive economy trends all over the world, especially in the Asia Pacific region will upscale the manufacturing activities in future. China leads the worldwide manufacturing output due to supportive government policies, foreign investments and availability of cheap labor.
Similar trends are observed in many Asian countries which will boost the general manufacturing industry in future. Additionally, technological advancements will positively influence the manufacturing output worldwide, propelling the global compressor oil market share over the forecast period.
Significant growth in construction sector in most of the developing nations will bolster the global market in the future, owing to extensive usage of portable compressors for operating pneumatic drills, hammers, etc. Compressor oil improves the efficiency and productivity of these compressors along with ensuring long serviceability.
Urbanization, demographic shifts, increasing consumer aspirations associated with high standards of living are bolstering the residential and commercial buildings sectors. Several regional governments are investing huge amounts for the development of infrastructure in order to improve social and economic welfare.
According to Global Infrastructure Outlook, the required worldwide infrastructure investment by 2040 is estimated around USD 3.8 trillion, which will boost the infrastructure construction activities globally. This in turn will spur the compressor oil market growth by 2025.
Compressor oils, like majority of the lubricants, are developed as one of the downstream petrochemical products. The petrochemical industry is highly price sensitive. Volatility in the global crude oil prices will lead to uncertainty in the product profit margins, thus creating production challenges for the compressor oil market players.

|Pitfalls & Challenges:||
Market By Base Oil
Based on base oil, the industry is segmented into mineral oil, synthetic oil and others. Others segment consists semi-synthetic and bio-based oils. Synthetic oil segment captured a significant market share and accounted over 60% volume share in 2018. It is widely used in many applications as they don’t contain additives or sulfur, which can cause unnecessary build-up on valves.
Synthetic oil provides wider operating temperature range and longer storage stability as compared to mineral oil. Additionally, it offers less wear, high efficiency, better oxidation stability, lower volatility and better film strength than mineral oil, thereby displaying promising compressor oil market trends in future.
Market By Compressor Type
Based on compressor type, the market is categorized into reciprocating, rotary screw, centrifugal and others compressor type. The other compressors include axial, scroll, straight lobe and liquid piston. Rotary screw segment captured more than half of the global volume share in the compressor oil market in 2018 owing to the high popularity of these compressors in the industrial sector along with high lubrication requirements in screws, speed gears, and radial & thrust roller bearings.
Reciprocating compressors segment was worth more than USD 1.5 billion and is likely to witness a slow growth over the forecast period.
Market By End-use
