Industrial gear oil is a lubricant fluid used in industrial gearboxes to reduce friction, protection against corrosion and to ensure efficient, low maintenance operation of gears at different speeds, temperature and oil contaminations. This market witnesses its applications in many industries such as in manufacturing plants, motor vehicles, railway locomotives, aero plane, agricultural pump sets, and generators and others. Industrial Gear Oils Market being a part of the Industrial Lubricants Market, is a pretty niche and strong market segment.

IndustryARC’s latest market study projects that the Global Industrial Gear Oils Market shall reach $5.8 Billion during the forecast period 2015-2020 due to high demand from Manufacturing Plants in BRICS.

Even though there has been a decline in the global consumption of industrial gear oil due to factors like smaller gearboxes and superior service life, the revenue is gradually increasing. China is a key player in the textile manufacturing industry which is a key segment for industrial gear oil as it is used in the textile manufacturing machineries. Industrial gear oils for manufacturing must have the capacity to handle extreme pressure and uneven high loads.
