Top Impacting Factors

Manufacturers of lubricant packaging industries have been moving towards flexible packaging format in recent time, owing to affordability and convenience this packaging offer. Flexible packaging formats such as stand-up pouches and bag-in-box are gaining more attention from lubricant packaging industries. Augmentin demand for small packs lubricant packaging has resulted in a paradigm shift towards flexible packaging set-up. It also marks in high product to packaging ratio, owing to its portability as compared to rigid plastic oil bottles or another rigid packaging format. 

The study also emphasizes that flexible packaging products are much lighter than rigid plastic bottles, and comparatively, it consumes 60% percent less plastic, thereby garnering significant traction in the lubricant packaging space. With this, quite a few end-use industries counting power generation, automotive, oil & gas, and chemical employ various mechanical components such as gearboxes, pumps, turbines, and compressors and more like these. These components require frequent lubrication for smooth functioning. Thus, the growing demand for lubricants from these end-use industries is likely to boost the market for lubricant packaging over the forecast period.

In the same line, the emergent power generation sector, coupled with escalating sales of commercial as well as passenger vehicles, is, in turn, likely to propel the market growth in the coming years. Furthermore, mounting investments, mainly in the oil & gas, chemical, and power generation sector, is also on the verge of anticipating considerable market growth over the forecast period.
