In this market, different types of lubricants in plastic processing such as paraffin/mineral oil, metallic stearates, petroleum/polyolefin wax, fatty amides, esters/acids/alcohols, and others are used as lubricant type. Lucintel forecasts that metallic stearates will remain the largest market due to their wide usage as internal and external lubricants in PVC and other plastic processing industries. Lucintel predicts that paraffin/mineral oil will witness the fastest growth during the forecast period due to the increasing consumption of paraffin as an external lubricant and secondary plasticizer in PVC processing.

Within lubricants in the global plastic processing market, PVC will remain the largest polymer by value and volume due to the increasing demand for PVC in various applications such as, pipes, packaging, wire & cable, flooring, roofing, building materials, consumer goods, healthcare, and automotive parts.

Asia Pacific is expected to remain the largest market by value and volume and witness the highest growth over the forecast period due to the growing demand for plastics in construction, packaging, and automotive industries.

An emerging trend that has a direct impact on the dynamics for lubricants in the global plastic processing industry is the use of renewable raw materials for manufacturing of lubricants. Baerlocher, Valtris Specialty Chemicals, Clariant, PMC Biogenix, BASF SE, Peter Greven, Faci, FERRO-PLAST, and Exxon Mobil are among the major suppliers of lubricants.
