Aircraft comprises numerous moving parts that are associated with the propulsion system. As a result, there is a rise in the utilization of aviation lubricants to eliminate friction between these metal parts and function across a wide temperature range. They also assist in reducing their wear and tear and improving the energy efficiency of an aircraft. Besides this, they help prevent deposit formation and protect engine parts, such as elastomeric seals, O-rings, gaskets, and other seals, from corrosion. They generally contain antioxidants, metal deactivators, anti-corrosion and -foaming additives, viscosity index improvers, boundary lubrication additives.

Aviation Lubricants Market Trends:
Over the years, traveling via air has become more accessible to people on account of the easy availability of affordable flights and the increased frequency of flights as well as the connectivity of airports. In line with this, airlines are expanding their operating hours and commercial fleets, particularly in emerging economies, to increase profitability. This represents one of the leading factors driving the sales of aviation lubricants across the globe. Moreover, with the onset of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the aviation industry experienced slack on account of the implementation of travel restrictions and complete lockdown in numerous countries worldwide. However, the demand for aviation lubricants remained constant as airplanes with infrequent use also require corrosion protection. Apart from this, there is a rise in the use of synthetic lubricants as they ensure thermal stability and offer better performance in extreme weather conditions. Some of the other factors projected to strengthen the growth of the market include the escalating need to improve the fuel economy, stringent fuel emission norms and the rising air passenger traffic.
