Lubricants Market Analysis and Forecasts, 2018 – 2024

Lubricant is a chemical substance that can help to control or reduce friction and wear and tear of the surfaces that come in contact with the bodies in relative motion. Based upon its nature, lubricants are utilized to abolish heat and wear debris, transmit power, supply additives into the contact, and provide protection. Lubricants can be in any form such as liquid (oil, water, etc.), solid (graphite, graphene, molybdenum disulfide), or gas (air) or may be semisolid (grease) forms. Majority of the lubricants comprise of additives that help to improve their performance.

When two rough surfaces roll against each other, the severities of the surfaces come in close contact with each other and thereby result in interlock and produce friction. The aim of a lubrication approach is to distinct the rubbing surfaces with a lubricant layer, that minimizes or prevents direct contact of the bodies
