Trends, opportunities and forecast for lubricants in the plastic processing market to 2025 by lubricant type (paraffin/mineral oil, metallic stearates, petroleum/polyolefin wax, fatty amides, esters/acids/alcohols, and others), polymer type (polyvinyl chloride [PVC], polyolefin [PO], engineering plastics, and other plastics), product type (internal lubricants and external lubricants), end use industry (construction, packaging, consumer goods, automotive, others), and region

The future of lubricants in the plastic processing market looks promising with opportunities in the construction, packaging, consumer goods, and automotive in dustries. Lubricants in the plastic processing market are expected to decline in 2020 due to global economic recession led by COVID-19. However, market will witness recovery in the year 2021 and it is expected to reach an estimated $5.6 billion by 2025 with a CAGR of 2% to 4% from 2020 to 2025. The major drivers for this market are growing demand for plastics in various end use markets, including construction, packaging, consumer goods, and automotive and increased demand for lubricants to reduce frictional forces and to improve processing & productivity of plastics manufacturing.
An emerging trend that has a direct impact on the dynamics for lubricants in the plastic processing industry is the use of renewable raw materials for manufacturing of lubricants.

In this market, metallic stearates is the largest segment by lubricant type, whereas PVC is largest segment by plastic type. Growth in various segments of the lubricants for plastic processing market are given below:
