Forestry lubricants minimize friction among surfaces that are in direct contact and reduce the heat generated during the movement of the surfaces. They are essential elements in the smooth operations of any type of machinery and vehicles. Lubricants used in the forestry sector are selected based on their properties to improve machine operations and reduce the wear-down rate, thus reducing the maintenance costs of the machine. Growing awareness of mechanized farming has boosted the demand for agriculture and harvesting machinery globally.

The harvesting and logging equipment are exposed to unfavorable working conditions such as heavy usage, extreme temperatures, and harsh weather therefore use of lubricants becomes essential for the maintenance of equipment. Lubricants are extensively used for the lubrication of agricultural and forestry machinery to maximize the level of performance of equipment, provide excellent wear and tear, ensure good energy efficiency, and offer exceptional performance when exposed to unfavorable working conditions. Besides, steady growth in the construction industry along with improved living standards are escalating the demand for wood and wooden furniture.

Growing automotive production along with automotive fleet and stringent regulations to ensure passenger safety & lifespan of products will drive the forestry lubricants market share. Moreover, increasing disposable incomes in emerging economies including India, China, Brazil, Indonesia, Thailand, etc. will support industry expansion. Besides, factors such as rapid urbanization, industrialization, and increasing international trade across globe will create significant growth opportutines for the overall industry growth.

Furthermore, the rising usage of bio-based and enivornment lubricants in agricultural and forestry applications will stimulate the market size. The demand growth for forestry lubricants has been majorly witnessed in Europe and North America. Besides, increasing usage of environment-friendly and eco-label lubricants by OEM manufacturers along with various tax-saving schemes are promoting bio-lubricants demand, particularly in the U.S. and European countries.

Strict regulatory giudeline for forestry lubricants market has discouraged new entrants into this space thus challenging the growth of the market. Stringent regulatory guidelines led by the EPA and the EU commission on the use of environmentally acceptable lubricants along with many manufacturers referring to eco-label while purchasing lubricants may impact the industry profitability. Further, the crisis of COVID-19 has negatively impacted the business, owing to strict lockdown rules and closure of different end-use industries.

Synthetic lubricant products are projected to witness significant gains owing to their cost-effectiveness and ability to provide enhanced efficiency

Based on products, the market is bifurcated into synthetic, synthetic blend oil, bio-based, and mineral. The demand for synthetic forestry lubricants segment is anticipated to surpass over USD 2.71 billion by 2027 due to the increasing usage of synthetic lubricants owing to their beneficial properties and cost-effectiveness. Synthetic oils have uniform molecular structure that enables regular lubrication to forestry machinery, thus offers increased efficiency and lower power consumption.

Moreover, synthetic oils are highly stable and durable at extreme temperature working conditions compared to mineral oil. Besides, these products also offer high viscosity which makes it more resistant to temperature changes, thus augmenting their usage in forestry vehicles and machinery.

Excellent anti-wear properties of synthetic lubricants make machines and engines more efficient and reliable therefore widely preferred for forestry lubrication application. Also, synthetic oils require less force or horsepower to move heavy loads which enhances its application for forestry applications. Few synthetic oils are highly biodegradable which makes them excellent choice for application in sensitive environments such as forestry industry where oil spills and environment contact can occur. Therefore, synthetic oils can be a responsible, rational, and required choice as forestry lubricant.
