Alkylated Naphthalene Market, By Grade (Standard and Food), By Viscosity Index (22–65 SUS, 65–90

Published Date: | Report Code : CH1942738


The Alkylated Naphthalene Market is expected to promise high growth owing to the growth of industrial machinery, automotive, and energy sectors in recent years. Increasing demand from applications including automotive engine & gear oils, hydraulic fluids, heat transfer oils, compressor oils, paper machine oils, industrial lubes & greases, and others are expected to drive the growth of the market.

Alkylated naphthalene is an exceptional class of synthetic fluids with remarkable thermo-oxidative and hydrolytic dependability, low volatility, and good solvency attributes. Alkylated naphthalene is classified as Group-V base oil by the American Petroleum Institute. However, alkylated naphthalene is hardly used as the sole base oil. It is fundamentally utilized in a lubricant formulation, replacing a portion of Group-II, Group-III, or PAO base oil. Incorporating alkylated naphthalene in a formulation improves the thermal and thermo-oxidative strength of the formulation. This improves the overall service life and performance of lubricants.

Segment Insights

Alkylated naphthalene is used as the base stock in synthetic lubricant applications that require high stability under extreme operating conditions. Moreover, it is used to enhance thermal and oxidative stability and varnish control. Additionally, it helps to extend the lifetime of high performance lubricants.

The global alkylated naphthalene market is growing with the increase in the use of lubricants in the automotive sector. Moreover, alkylated naphthalene is used to replace some extent of synthetic base oil in ointment products. It gives prevalent thermal and thermo-oxidative stability to the lubricant formulation. This improves the general time period of realistic usability and performance of lubricants. These factors are fueling the growth of the global alkylated naphthalene market.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • Growth of industrial machinery, automotive, and energy sectors
  • Huge usage of lubricants in the automotive sector
  • The rise in trade, industrialization, and urbanization fueling demand for lubricants
  • Fluctuation in raw material prices
