Lube Oil Blending Based On Imported Base Oil - Manufacturing Plant, Detailed Project Report, Profile, Business Plan, Industry Trends, Market Research, Survey, Manufacturing Process, Machinery, Raw Materials, Feasibility Study, Investment Opportunities

Lube oil is a substance (often a liquid) introduced between two moving surfaces to reduce the friction between them, improving efficiency and reducing wear. They may also have the function of dissolving or transporting foreign particles and of distributing heat. Lubricants today are classified into two major groups: Automotive lubricants and Industrial lubricants. One of the single largest applications for lubricants, in the form of motor oil is to protect the internal combustion engines in motor vehicles and powered equipment. Practically lube oil contain 90% base oil (most often petroleum fractions, called mineral oils) and less than 10% additives. Vegetable oils or synthetic liquids such as hydrogenated polyolefin, esters, silicones, fluorocarbons and many others are sometimes used as base oils. Additives deliver reduced friction and wear, increased viscosity, improved viscosity index, resistance to corrosion and oxidation, aging or contamination, etc. The basic functions of a lubricant are friction and wear reduction, heat removal and contaminant suspension. Apart from important application in internal combustion engines, vehicles and industrial gear boxes, compressors, turbines or hydraulic systems, there are vast numbers of other applications, which mostly require specifically tailored lubricants. Designing a lubricant to perform above stated functions in different systems is a complex task, involving a careful balance of properties both in the lube base stocks and the performance enhancing additives. Between 5000 and 10000 different lubricant formulations are necessary to satisfy more than 90% of all lubricant applications. India is the sixth largest consumer of lubricants in the world. Each one of the vast contingent of 22 Multinationals and a total of 80 big & small players are vying for a pie of Rs.5, 500 Crore market. Worldwide established brands, some of them albeit new to India, like Shell, Mobil, Caltex, Elf, Pennzoil are fighting it out with established Indian brands like SERVO & others to establish their foothold in the 6th largest lubricant market in the World. Compared to the average World consumption of 35 Million tonnes per annum & Asia-Pacific region consumption of 7.5 million tones, the Indian lube industry with annual demand of 1 million tonnes is just behind Japan and China in Asia having a demand growth rate of 4% compared to the World growth rate ranging between zero to 2%. That is the lube industry in India today. The current lubricants market is estimated to be of Rs. 60 billion. The automotive lubricants market in India was controlled by the four major public sector oil companies such as major public sector oil companies such as Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL), Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited (HPCL), Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL) and a handful of private companies such as Castrol, Tidewater, and others until 1992. Following liberalization, major policy initiatives were taken and which, encouraged foreign companies to invest in India. Companies are adopting a more customer-oriented approach where they are likely to focus on creating brand awareness through print and visual media. For example promotional campaigns and trade shows offering gifts to their customers are methods of driving sales of automotive lubricants. The original equipment segment and retail trade are the two major marketing channels in the Indian automotive lubricants market. Due to the growing competition, tie-ups with original equipment manufacturers (OEM) are becoming important as they reinforce the value proposition of a particular brand. There is a very good scope for new entrepreneurs in this field. Few Indian Major Players are as under: Alicid Organic Inds. Ltd. Anand Engineers Pvt. Ltd. Asia Refinery Ltd. Atreya Petrochem Ltd.
