The Middle East and Africa manual lubrication management system market share witnessed significant growth in the past and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 2.2% during the forecast period (2024-2032).
Lubrication management is a crucial part of routine equipment upkeep. Proper lubrication of moving parts increases equipment longevity and reduces maintenance needs. Industrial machinery can be oiled either by hand or automatically. Manual lubrication management calls for an oil cup or grease fitting and a portable pump. Lubricant is injected into the friction points via tubing or drilled channels once the pump tube has been connected to the fitting.

As pulp and paper operations require more machinery than other industries, lubrication management systems are prevalent. The complex machinery includes the Yankee drier for tissue production, the corrugated roller bearing for cardboard production, and the soot blower for pulp production. When making paper, the pulp is heated to a high temperature and cooked in water at the damp end, resulting in an environment that is steamy, humid, and extremely hot. High temperatures are also utilized in the dry stage of papermaking, which involves heating, ironing, and curing the product. In the dry portion, these facilities employ manual lubrication systems to combat the harsh effects of moisture, high loads, variable velocities, and high temperatures.
In addition, efficient lubrication systems contribute to increased production and cost-effectiveness. The pulp and paper industry is anticipated to grow swiftly in all regions, and the demand for innovative packaging to enhance product display on store shelves is likely to increase.
Manual lubrication management systems have historically been widely utilized in the industrial sector. However, some drawbacks of manual systems have led many industries to move from manual to automated lubrication management systems. In industries where ideal lubrication is required to ensure efficient operation processes, less downtime, and lower maintenance costs, manual lubrication systems do not guarantee the right amount of lubricant at the right time and place, posing serious risks. The likelihood of bearing failures rises when lubrication is insufficient. Improper lubrication is to blame for more than 50% of bearing failures. Companies increasingly focus on automatic manual lubrication management systems rather than manual solutions to reduce maintenance costs and increase cost-effectiveness.
Significant expansion of important end-use industries in developing nations, including food and beverage, oil and gas, construction, automotive, and others, is projected to increase demand for manual lubrication management systems. Product consumption is projected to increase as the construction industry expands and spends more on residential construction projects. Per capita, disposable income is rising, and living standards are altering. Additionally, rising investment in offshore oil and gas drilling operations to satisfy rising oil and gas demand from important end-use sectors is projected to promote market expansion. Additionally, growing demand for packaged food goods in developing countries due to convenience, an increase in the working population, and higher per capita disposable income are projected to fuel the expansion of the food and beverage industry and raise product demand.
The Middle East and Africa manual lubrication management system market is segmented based on the country into GCC, South Africa, and the Rest of the Middle East and Africa. GCC dominates the country market and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 1.9% during the forecast period.
The value of the Middle East and Africa region was USD 77.58 million in 2020; by 2029, it is anticipated to reach USD 89.65 million. Strong oil and gas production, continued drilling, and construction of skyscrapers and commercial buildings contribute to the region's prosperity. South Africa's paper and pulp sector is also expanding steadily, necessitating ongoing machine lubrication. Additionally, the production and demand for cement in the building sector in numerous nations, including Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and Turkey, spur regional market expansion.
The Middle East and Africa manual lubrication management system market is segmented based on Component, End-Use, and Country.
Based on the Component, the market is segmented into Storage Systems, Lubricant Handling Containers, and Distribution Tools.
Storage System dominated the market and is expected to register a CAGR of 2.5% over the forecast period. Proper storage of lubricating oils and greases is essential for avoiding wasteful contamination, deterioration, and disposal. There is a high need for storage systems since lubricants degrade when exposed to extreme temperatures. Lubricant storage systems preserve lubricants in an orderly fashion and shield them from debris. In addition, these setups stop oils from getting mixed up. Lubricants can be stored in bulk in oil storage containers and stacked on a rack to save room. Manual lubrication storage systems are being developed to accommodate the growing need for customized tube lube rooms.
Based on End-Use, the market is segmented into Food and Beverage, Oil and Gas, Paper and Pulp, Steel, Transportation, Power Generation, Cement, Construction, and Others.
Steel dominated the market and is expected to register a CAGR of 2.6% over the forecast period. The steel facility operates under various conditions, including extremely heavy loads, high speeds, a dusty, polluted environment, and a humid, acidic environment. It also operates between low and high temperatures. Steel facilities have high investment costs and generate profits by maintaining continuous production with minimal downtime and maintenance stops. In the steel industry, machines must be highly dependent and available over extended periods.
