DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Diesel Engine Lubricants Market - Global Outlook & Forecast 2022-2027" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Diesel engine lubricants are used in heavy machines, construction equipment, commercial vehicles, agricultural machines & equipment, and others. The continued requirement of lubricants in these end-use applications for effective and efficient performance drives the demand for diesel engine lubricants.

Increasing demand for heavy vehicles and construction equipment will drive the growth of diesel engine lubricants globally. The demand for commercial vehicles in India, China, Brazil, South Korea, Argentina, Mexico, and South Africa is growing because of rapid development in the automotive and infrastructure industry. This has created a healthy environment for the diesel engine lubricants market growth.


a) Infrastructure development in emerging economies due to subsidies offered by local governments for industrial development and FDIs. This increases the demand for heavy equipment, ultimately increasing lubricants' demand.

b) Diesel engines are used in heavy and light commercial vehicles, passenger cars, heavy construction equipment, warehousing machines & equipment, railway and marine transportation, and others. However, the use of diesel engines is decreasing in passenger cars due to environmental regulations and emission control rules. However, commercial and heavy equipment still require diesel engines to operate efficiently.

c) Diesel engines offer higher fuel efficiency and torque compared to petrol engines. The various characteristics of diesel engines help them deliver higher performance and fuel efficiency. Diesel engines have more torque than petrol engines due to the higher compression ratio in diesel engines; combustion speed is high, length of stroke is more, use of turbocharger and calorific value of diesel is more.

d) The US, China, India, South Korea, Brazil, the UK, Germany, Canada, and Saudi Arabia developed rapidly regarding infrastructure. These projects increased the demand for construction equipment, such as loaders, excavators, and dumpers. There is infrastructure development in emerging economies due to subsidies offered by local governments for industrial development and FDIs. This increases the demand for heavy equipment, ultimately increasing lubricants demand.
