Waste Oil Market Overview

The waste oil market size is forecast to reach US$96.4 billion by 2027 after growing at a CAGR of 5.4% during 2022-2027. Waste oil refers to any oil that is used or has been contaminated and can no longer perform its intended use. A wide variety of waste oils such as transmission oils, hydraulic oils, lubricating oils, and fuel oils are generated through various industrial and manufacturing processes. These waste oils are later collected and processed to produce lubricants such as engine oils, lubricating greases, and machine oils for automotive and industrial applications. The automotive sector is booming globally with increasing activities of high vehicle production and sales and this is expected to influence the growth of the market during the forecast period. For instance, according to the stats by European Automobile Manufacturers Association, passenger car registrations increased by 25.2% in the European region in the first half of 2021. Furthermore, the demand for re-refining application of waste oils is increasing in the market as re-refining restores used oil to new oil by eliminating heavy metals, dirt, and chemical impurities, reducing environmental hazards to a great extent. The growing demand for re-refining applications is projected to drive the market’s growth during the forecast period. For instance, as per the 2022 journal by Science Direct, re-refining of waste oil is a suitable option in conserving resources and creating a pollution-free environment. Vacuum distillation technology is projected to witness the highest demand during the forecast period. The strict regulations regarding waste oil management might hamper the market’s growth during the forecast period.

COVID-19 Impact

The waste oil market was deeply affected due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Challenges in the form of cross-border movement restriction and disruption in the supply chain hampered the business in the market. Market players implemented multiple measures to withstand the severity of the pandemic and maintain a standard business operation in the market.

Waste Oil Market Segment Analysis - By Technology

Vacuum distillation technology dominated the waste oil market in 2021. This technology allows the renewal of a wide range of waste oils into base oil with robust features of high recovery up to 85%, low cost, energy-saving, and environmentally friendly process. Owing to such a diverse portfolio, market players and research organizations are focused on the higher uses of vacuum distillation in the market. For instance, as per the April 2021 journal by the International Research Journal of Engineering and Technology (IRJET), refining of waste oil was conducted through multiple technologies out of which vacuum distillation was found out to be more effective. Such increasing use of vacuum distillation technology is expected to increase its demand in the market during the forecast period.

Waste Oil Market Segment Analysis - By End User

The re-refiners application segment dominated the waste oil market in 2021 and is growing at a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period. The re-refining of waste oil in re-refiner plants helps in the removal of impurities and contaminants from the oil and to restore its original properties, making the oil ready for industrial use. The re-refined oil possesses a quality that is equivalent to or better than base oils. The demand for re-refining of waste oil is growing in the market as it supports both the atmosphere and the economy and this is expected to contribute to the market’s growth during the forecast period. For instance, as per the May 2020 journal by the International Journal of Engineering Research and Technology, re-refining of waste engine oil was carried out successfully through various steps such as dehydration and bleaching. The re-refining resulted in red transparent color base oil without the emission of any poisonous gas. Such increasing re-refining activities of waste oils in the re-refiners are projected to drive the market’s growth during the forecast period.

Waste Oil Market Segment Analysis - By Geography

The Asia-Pacific region held a significant market share in the waste oil market in 2021, up to 32%. The high demand for waste oil is attributed to the booming automobile sector in the region. Different types of waste oils such as transmission oils, hydraulic oils, and fuel oils are generated through various industrial and manufacturing processes which are later collected and refined to obtain lubricants such as engine oils and lubricating greases for use in automobiles. The automobile sector in the region is booming with increasing production and sales of vehicles and this, in turn, is projected to increase the demand for waste oil in the region during the forecast period. For instance, as per the stats by the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers, Chinese commercial vehicles production reached 310000 units in September 2021, increasing 35.5% month on month.
