Knitting Oil Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2023-2030 - By Product, Technology, Grade, Application, End-user, Region: (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East and Africa)
The knitting industry, a key player in textile manufacturing, is witnessing a rise in the adoption of high-performance specialty lubricants to optimize the efficiency and performance of knitting machines. With the increasing demand for fabrics in various end-uses such as apparel, home furnishings, and industrial applications, the need for reliable and durable knitting machines has become paramount.

Importance of Lubrication:
Knitting machines, whether semi or fully automated, undergo high stress, constant load changes, vibrations, and varying operating conditions. To ensure sufficient life and performance of stitch-forming elements, proper lubrication is critical. Knitting oils, developed with ultra-refined base oils and performance additives, offer high lubricity and low friction coefficients between frictional partners like sinkers and needles.

Advantages of Knitting Oils:
These specially formulated oils have numerous advantages, including:
1. Scourability: Non-staining and easily water-washable, preventing carbonaceous deposits and stains, especially essential for cotton/elastane plated fabrics requiring pre-dye heat setting.
2. High-Temperature Stability: Reduced evaporation rates at high temperatures, ensuring longer-lasting performance.
3. Wear Reduction: Minimizes wear and tear on needles and moving parts, leading to enhanced machine reliability.
4. Compatibility: Compatible with plastic parts and rubber seals of lubrication and electronic systems, ensuring seamless integration.
5. Environmental Safety: Environmentally safer than petroleum-based oils, promoting sustainability.

History of Knitting Machines:
During the Industrial Revolution, the transition from manual to mechanized factories saw the rise of knitting machines, producing fabrics on a massive scale. Today, modern circular knitting machines, flat beds, and weaving machines process hundreds of kilograms of knitted material daily, contributing significantly to the textile industry.

Fashion and Technology:
Fashion industry trends, driven by technologies like artificial intelligence, 3D printing, IoT, and mobile commerce, are changing the way people experience fashion. As the global population continues to grow, the demand for textiles is expected to rise, with the global apparel market projected to reach $2.5 trillion by 2030.

Opportunities in Asia Pacific:
With demographic changes and growing consumer markets, Asia Pacific is witnessing increased demand for textile and knitting products. Luxury brands are tapping into the Asian market, and investments in the textile sector are on the rise, presenting opportunities for knitting oil manufacturers in the region.

Leading Knitting Oil Companies:
Notable players in the knitting oil market include Bechemindia, Behran Oil Co., HPCL, Eastern Petroleum Private Limited, Extro Lubricants, GOC Petrochemicals Private Limited (Formerly Gold Oil Corporation), KLÜBER LUBRICATION INDIA Pvt.
