Mining Lubricants Market – Competition Landscape

Technological advancements in lubricants is acting as a catalyst for mining lubricants market players to move up the value chain. The mining lubricants marketplace remains moderately fragmented, with Shell, Exxonn Mobil and Chevron as the traditional triumvirate. With size of mining equipment undergoing a seismic shift, manufacturers are strategizing to come out with differentiated offerings that lower maintenance costs.

  • Schaeffer, a privately held US company specializing in heavy duty lubricants, has demonstrated the capability of extending working time of mining equipment by several hours. Besides this, the company’s lubricants create a highly durable shield thus reducing metal-to-metal contact and friction
  • Total, on the other hand, closely collaborates with its mining company clients, advising them on correct lubricant storage solutions. It recommends the first in, first out approach thus reducing costs on obsolete inventories by as much as 6% – 19%
  • Exxon Mobil, in the year 2019, expanded its refinery at Singapore for better upgradation of Group II lubricants stock to remain competitive in the market

COVID-19 Impact on Mining Lubricants

In the first quarter of 2020, lubricant players have bore the brunt of the COVID-19 crisis as the virus rampaged across China, Europe and North America. Many had to fully or partially shut down operations. Sales of lubricants were down by as much as 70%-75% in Asia Pacific. Industry experts predict a gloomy outlook for the near term as it will take a few quarters for the market to come back to normalcy.

With lockdowns in force in Europe, Asia and North America, there has been a cessation in mining activity. Consumption of lubes has dropped and many lube refiners are being forced to cut down their throughput by at least 20%-30%. The daily global oil demand is also set to shrink by a few million barrels leaving an unpleasant residual impact on the mining lubricants market. The use of inventories to meet pending demand and cash reserves will help lubricant manufacturers to sail through this turbulent time in the short-term.
