簡介

美國佔全球潤滑油消費量的 20% 以上。它也是世界上消費量最大的國家之一,人均年消費量為 7.6 加侖。汽車的高使用率和擁有率以及各行各業的存在支撐著對潤滑油的需求。 2020年美國潤滑油總需求量將達到20.9億加侖,其中產生約11.7億加侖廢油,其餘在使用過程中流失。目前,估計回收的廢油量佔汽車和工業潤滑油用戶產生的廢油的 72%。

在潤滑油行業,正在推進脫碳和減少碳足跡,向循環經濟的轉型正在取得進展。為了實現這些可持續發展目標,我們需要減少對進口燃料和高污染化石燃料開採的依賴。根據美國能源部 (DOE) 的最新估計,回收的廢油中有 30% 被重新精煉為基礎油並加工成各種潤滑油。

以前認為由再精煉基礎油製成的潤滑劑不如由原始原油製成的潤滑劑。然而,由於過去十年中廢油再精煉技術的進步以及對再精煉基礎油基潤滑油的經濟和環境可持續性效益的認可,它已被接受,招聘人數也在穩步增加。

美國是 API 組 II 基礎油的主要消費國和出口國,但進口了 80% 的 III 組基礎油。第二組是最常用的基礎油,廣泛用作汽車和工業潤滑劑。另一方面,具有更高耐磨性的高性能、高穩定性產品需要III類基礎油,相當於半合成潤滑油。在美國,由於旨在減少排放的標準修訂和對高性能潤滑油的需求增加,對 III 類基礎油的需求正在增加。目前,美國祇有一種廢油精煉廠能夠再精煉III類基礎油。新進入者正在投資先進技術,以從廢油中生產 III 類基礎油。

美國潤滑油循環經濟預計在未來五年內以 8% 的複合年增長率增長。目前,各大公司的市場整合正在進行中,我們正在利用壓倒性優勢提高采收率,增加高市值的再精製基礎油產量。

本報告分析了美國潤滑油循環經濟的總體情況和增長機會,分析了美國廢油回收、再精煉、利用市場的基本結構和背景,等-主要促進/抑制我們將為您提供有關因素、整體市場規模趨勢、顛覆性技術創新、當前挑戰和未來增長機會的信息。

Demand for Sustainable and High-quality Base Oils Drives Future Growth Potential

The United States accounts for more than 20% of all lubricants consumed globally. It has one of the highest per capita consumption rates of 7.6 gallons per year. Key factors such as high automobile use or ownership and a huge variety of industries contribute to the demand for lubricants. In 2020, total demand for lubricants in the United States reached 2.09 billion gallons, of which about 1.17 billion gallons of used oil were generated while the rest was lost in use. Currently, the used oil collected is an estimated 72% of the used oil generated by automotive and industrial users of lubricants.

A push for decarbonization and smaller carbon footprints is driving the move toward a circular economy for the lubricants industry. Achieving these sustainability goals requires less dependence on both imported fuel and on highly polluting fossil fuel extraction. In the last decade, collection of used oil has grown significantly in the United States, primarily driven by stringent enforcement of policies by individual states and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), including the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) that regulates the management of hazardous and non-hazardous waste. Current estimates from the US Department of Energy (DOE) indicate that 30% of the used oil collected is re-refined as base oil, which is then made into a variety of lubricants.

Lubricants manufactured from re-refined base oil were previously considered inferior to lubricants made from virgin crude oil. However, an increase in awareness, advancements in used oil re-refining technology, and the economical and environmental sustainability benefits of re-refined base oil based lubricants in the last 10 years have caused a steady rise in their acceptance and adoption.

The United States is the leading consumer and exporter of API-Group II base oil, but it imports 80% of its Group III base oils. Group II, the most commonly used base oils, serves a wide variety of automotive and industrial lubricants. High-performing, high-stability products with improved wear resistance require Group III base oils, which are equated to semi-synthetic lubricants. Evolving standards aimed at reducing emissions and increasing demand for high-performance lubricants have sparked demand for Group III base oils in the United States. Currently, only one US used oil re-refiner has the capability to produce re-refined Group III base oils. New market entrants are investing in advanced technologies to produce Group III base oil from used oil.

Frost & Sullivan estimates that the US circular economy for lubricants will increase at a CAGR of 8% in the next 5 years. Tier I re-refiners hold more than 80% of the re-refined base oil production market share. The demand for recycled fuel oil is set to decrease in the next 5 years whereas re-refined base oil production will increase. The market is witnessing consolidation by Tier I players who are leveraging their dominant positions to improve collection efficiency and increase re-refined base oil production, which has high market value.
