March 17, 2022
Pangea Strategic Intelligence
Modern society is dependent on a range of crucial lubricants that are never seen but keep everything moving. In Europe alone, an average of around 5 million tonnes of lubricants are consumed every year. They are a requirement to keep everything where there is relative motion functioning but they also face challenges with regards to regulations, sustainability and innovation.

“Anywhere where there’s relative motion, you will find some kind of lubricant. Lubricants are the sole thing that protects that machine from destruction. They are a very highly engineered product and there’s a lot of fluid dynamics and chemistry that goes into engineering them. A study in 2016 showed that 27% of all the energy that’s produced around the world gets lost to frictional contacts, that is how important they are.”
