Independent lubricant manufacturers are not controlled by major oil companies and most do not have their own refineries. They procure base oils from major oil suppliers and petroleum companies and then process these oils with additives to produce lubricants. These lubricants are utilized in several industrial and automobile applications. Independent lubricant manufacturers commonly purchase raw materials from the open market (chemical and oleo-chemical industry). Independent lubricant manufacturers primarily focus on the manufacturing and marketing of lubricants followed and on specialties and niche business. Some of the independent lubricant manufacturers namely Southwestern Petroleum Corporation basically deals in manufacturing of heavy duty lubes. They supply lubricants and provide technical assistance for the metalworking fluid industry.

Besides having numerous advantages, lubricants are useful for wide range of applications in automotive and industrial end use sectors. Growing applications in the agriculture, mining and steel industry, increased automotive sales accompanied by growing support for bio-based lubricants are likely to fuel the lubricant demand in the coming years. Ongoing paradigm shift towards high precision technology over conventional methods is expected to boost the demand for independent lubricant manufacturers. Growing demand of automated machines in mining and agricultural segments has flooded the industrial lubricants demand. Growing necessity to minimize lag-time and raise production efficiency particularly in manufacturing industries is likely to impel the product demand in the coming five to six years. This in turn is expected to bolster the overall market growth over the forecast period. However, market growth is dampened due to fluctuation in mineral oil prices. The growing attractiveness of bio-based lubes is also expected to be pulled over by their high cost than mineral oil. As a result, the market is constrained by a couple of challenges.

Lubricants play a vital role primarily in the smooth operation of moving machine parts. Independent lubricant manufacturers are in some of the niche markets supplying heavy duty lubricants to most of the heavy industries including OEM car manufacturers. Most of the OEM car manufacturers have signed agreements with independent lubricant manufacturers including BMW, Audi, Porsche, and Mercedes. New opportunities are expected to be carved with signing of new agreements. Automotive product segment is estimated to be one of the rapidly growing segments owing to rising automotive sales, however, it acquired less market share than the industrial lubricants product segment in 2012.

The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.
IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes.

Manufacturing has widely adopted standardized and automated processes to create designs, build them, and maintain them through their life cycle. However, many modern manufacturing systems go beyond mechanized workflows to introduce empowered workers, flexible collaboration, and rapid iteration. Such behaviors also characterize open source software development and are at the heart of DevOps culture, processes, and tooling.
DevOps is gaining traction in the federal government – and for good reasons. Heightened user expectations are pushing IT organizations to accelerate application development and support more innovation. At the same time, budgetary constraints require that agencies find ways to decrease the cost of developing, maintaining, and running applications.
