The Base Oil Industry in US is Shifting from Group I to Group II and III. The U.S. Group II and III Base Oil Market to Reach $9.9 Billion by 2027. - Arizton

·5 min read

The U.S. group II and III base oil market are expected to reach $9.9 Billion by 2027 from $7.08 Billion in 2022.

Chicago, June 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- According to Arizton’s latest research report, the US group II and III base oil market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.9% during the forecast period. The installation of catalytic dewaxing requires low investment, delivers outstanding performance at low temperature, and offers flexibility to produce both lubricant base stock and light distillates. Therefore, it fuels the demand for catalytic dewaxing technology for producing group II and III base oil. For instance, Chevron was the first company to combine catalytic dewaxing with hydrocracking and hydro finishing technology in its California base oil plant in 1984.

In recent years, the US base oil industry is experiencing a shift from group I base oil to group II & group III base oil, driven by increased regulatory standards, circular economy, and demand for high-quality lubricants. In addition, the increasing demand for low viscosity and low volatility lubricants is growing due to the increasing trend toward better fuel economy. Group II & III base stock products are widely used across the globe.

One of the major sectors that consume these products on a larger scale is the automotive sector. This is primarily due to the increasing production of vehicles in the US. Moreover, economic growth in the US has played a vital role with respect to demand and consumption. However, the market poses moderate fragmented behavior among vendors. The competition among these companies has intensified, leading to the introduction of many innovative and advanced solutions in the market.
