Greases - Recent Price Trend

In the three years to 2017, the average price of greases has been decreasing at an estimated annualized rate of 0.1% to $450 per 120-pound keg. This decline has been the result of a dramatic decline in the price of crude oil, which is a major input in the production of greases. However, growing demand from the industrial and automotive sectors has kept prices for greases from falling at a faster...

The total cost of ownership for grease products is less than the benchmark price, indicating a moderate level. The most significant cost of ownership is storage, which should be indoors in a climate-controlled environment.

About this Report

This report is intended to help buyers of greases, which are a type of semisolid lubricant consisting of oil and a thickener. Other ingredients can be added to grease, including rust inhibitors and oxidation preventatives. Because of its thicker consistency, grease has a longer working life than liquid oil lubricants and can perform better under high temperatures. These factors make greases a popular choice for lubricating heavy machinery and other industrial equipment that is hard to take apart and expensive to maintain. Furthermore, silicone greases are often used to lubricate rubber components due the corrosive effect oil has on rubber. Other types of lubricants, such as automotive lubricating oil and hydraulic oil, are excluded from this report.
