[Research Report] The robotics lubricants market size is expected to grow from US$ 3,413.72 million in 2022 to US$ 6,095.41 million by 2028; it is estimated to register a CAGR of 10.1% from 2022 to 2028.


Lubricants are used to reduce friction between surfaces and the heat generated, increasing the life of the surfaces involved. Industrial robots are involved in material handling, assembly, and dispensing, due to which they become exposed to the effects of wear and corrosion. Lubricants for robotics are developed to help decrease the downtime of industrial robots and positively impact quality, costs, and efficiency of the manufacturing process. Lubricants consist of a variety of fluids to withstand extreme conditions. Grease is a widely used lubricant for robotics operations.


The growing demand for robotics lubricants in the end use industries has aided the robotics lubricants market growth. In the manufacturing sector, a robotics lubricant is one of the key components that help an equipment operate with maximum reliability and at peak efficiency. Greases, hydraulic oils, and gear oils are used across several end-use industries, including automotive, electrical & electronics, food & beverages, logistics, and metal & machinery fabrication. Robotic grease contains base oil such as mineral oil or synthetic oil, thickener, and additives, which impart distinct product qualities. Greases possess several properties such as sealing ability, low leakage tendency, protection against corrosion, and heavy load handling. Several commercially available robot greases are food grade and comply with certain international standards for specific industries such as food & beverages and medical & healthcare. Grease degrades due to friction and exposure to extreme temperatures till its viscosity levels are insufficient to effectively lubricate the internal mechanical components. Robot greasing is an integral part of maintaining the overall efficiency of robots and robotic components. The recommended frequency for robot greasing varies by brand and model. Thus, the advantages of greases over other lubricants and the preference for robot greases from end-use industries are driving the robotics lubricants market. However, fluctuations in global economic conditions led to an increase in the costs of additives, base stocks, transportation, and manufacturing. Several manufacturers witnessed inflationary pressure as well as lubricant additives supply across the lubricant supply chain. In 2022, base oil prices in the US increased from US$ 2 per gallon to US$ 5 per gallon. Moreover, in 2022, FUCHS Lubricants Co announced a price hike of 8–12% for its lubricant additive portfolio, which was implemented from October 2022. Further, in 2022, Ergon Inc increased the prices of naphthenic base oil. However, in 2023, Chevron Corporation announced a US$ 0.20 to US$ 0.50 decrease in base oil price. Thus, fluctuation in prices of raw materials is restraining the robotics lubricants market growth.
