For a long time, the cure for diabetes type 1 and type 2 has relied on agonizing insulin shots for patients or insulin infusion via mechanical pumps. Regarding this, experts have been creating artificial pancreatic beta cells with the he…
Grease is a semisolid lubricant. Grease generally consists of a soap emulsified with mineral or vegetable oil. The characteristic feature of greases is that they possess a high initial viscosity, which upon the application of shear, drops to give the effect of an oil-lubricated bearing of approximately the same viscosity as the base oil used in the grease. This change in viscosity is called shear thinning. Grease is sometimes used to describe lubricating materials that are simply soft solids or high viscosity liquids, but these materials do not exhibit the shear-thinning properties characteristic of the classical grease. For example, petroleum jellies such as Vaseline are not generally classified as greases.
Scope of the Report:
This report focuses on the Lubricating Grease in global market, especially in North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific, South America, Middle East and Africa. This report categorizes the market based on manufacturers, regions, type and application.
Lubricating grease is a solid to semi-fluid product of dispersion of a thickening agent in a liquid lubricant. Lubricating grease generally consists of a soap emulsified with mineral or vegetable oil. The characteristic feature of lubricating grease is that they possess a high initial viscosity, which upon the application of shear, drops to give the effect of an oil-lubricated bearing of approximately the same viscosity as the base oil used in the grease.
A key variable in the performance of lubricating grease producers is raw material costs, specifically the speed at which any increase can be passed through to customers. The materials of lubricating grease include base oil, thickener and additive. Base oil is mainly petroleum derived, and petroleum price injects short-term volatility into margins and stock prices. Their prices follow the oil price, with a lag, and movements can inject volatility into producer margins. In general, most producers structure the majority of their contracts to include a pass through' clause that smooth the impact. Some processes are energy intensive and vulnerable to energy cost swings.
The largest consumption area of lubricating grease is Automotive, which accounted for 29.89% of world lubricating grease consumption. Consumption of lubricating grease in agriculture/off-highway manufacturing, general manufacturing and steel are also take leading share.
The worldwide market for Lubricating Grease is expected to grow at a CAGR of roughly 3.1% over the next five years, will reach 2500 million US$ in 2023, from 2090 million US$ in 2017, according to a new GIR (Global Info Research) study.
