Future Market Insight’s recent study on the global mining lubricants market predicts a CAGR of 3.3% across the forecast period 2020-2030. This growth is primarily being driven by burgeoning investments in the Asia-Pacific region, particularly in the coal and iron-ore markets.

As mining operations have compounded in recent years, the demand for sophisticated and heavy mining equipment have also surged. Equipment such as rock drills and hydraulic shovels require high maintenance due to their extensive usage which leads to wear and tear. Therefore, to increase their working lives, mining lubricants have become an important area of investment for major companies.

However, the recent coronavirus pandemic has induced a great deal of sluggishness in the mining industry. Since the pandemic’s onset, mining operations have ceased in favor of mandatory social distancing measures imposed due to nationwide lockdowns. Since early March, the metals and mining industry’s average share prices declined by 10%, while industrial production losses amounted to 20%. Such downturns have led to a fall in the mining lubricants market shares.

Fortunately, leading mining lubricant manufacturers have been building up their inventories which is allowing them to offset negative economies of scale by liquidating the surplus stock and converting them into cash reserves. This trend is expected to keep the mining lubricants market afloat throughout the pandemic’s duration.  

“The global mining lubricants market is actively pursuing opportunities in the lubricants space, enabling vendors to overcome challenges in the near future. As government regulations over the nature of lubricants become stricter, market players are developing more sustainable and environmental-friendly alternatives, generating an entirely new ecosystem to flourish,” concludes an FMI analyst.
