A leading contributor to the economic growth and development of a nation, the construction industry is today making rapid headway for innovation and technology upgradation across the globe. In India, the construction sector is expected to reach $1.4 trillion by 2025, and is set to become the third largest construction market globally. The construction industry in India works across a range of sub-sectors with several cross-cutting linkages, and its growth is driven primarily by the emergence and evolution of smart cities, industrial corridors, railways, mega ports, and more.

Our country’s swiftly expanding urban population is further accelerating demand for construction infrastructure and materials. The real estate sector is also providing a boost to the construction industry as it is expected to contribute approximately 13% to India’s GDP by 2025. Now, given the scope for growth in the sector, there is rising awareness on the need to reduce unwanted machine breakdowns and loss of hours for greater efficiency and profitability. For this, there is a parallel demand for high-caliber lubricants that ensure smooth and efficient functioning of machinery and equipment.

Superior lubrication solutions for profitable construction operations

Lubrication for uninterrupted operations
Quality lubricants are integral to uninterrupted operations in the construction industry. Lubricants play a vital role in preventing machine breakdowns, curtailing loss of man hours, improving efficiency per unit of output, and boosting overall productivity. The use of certified high-quality lubricants will enable the equipment to perform to its optimum potential even in severe working conditions that can range from heavy loads and extreme temperatures to excessive wear and dirt along with water contamination.

Backed with a legacy of 150 years of developing superior lubrication formulations, MobilTM Lubricants has been at the forefront of developing a range of products and services that cater to the diverse demands of the consumer sector. For instance, created with insights from industry experts and leading equipment builders, the Mobil Delvac™ range is a recognized leader in advanced heavy-duty lubricants. Under this series, the Mobil Delvac MX™ ESP 15W-40 has been formulated with a mixed detergent system that delivers cutting-edge performance in both new and older engines, while also assuring excellent control of oil thickening. Additionally, with exceptional resistance to oil consumption, oxidation, corrosive and abrasive wear, and high-temperature deposits, the Mobil Delvac 1™ ESP 5W-40 is an advanced synthetic heavy-duty diesel engine oil that helps extend engine life while providing long drain capability and potential fuel economy for modern and latest diesel engine technology operating in severe applications.

Mobil’s greases too are pioneering efficient operations by improving regreasing intervals, enhancing equipment life and providing exceptional protection even in extreme conditions. For instance, the Mobilgrease XHP™ 460 Series greases are extended service lithium complex greases designed to outperform conventional products by applying high-performance proprietary lithium complex manufacturing technology. With excellent adhesion and structural stability, these greases are characteristic of high level of chemical stability offering maximum protection against rust and corrosion. Under this series, the Mobilgrease XHP™ 462 Moly is fortified with 3% molybdenum disulfide and is particularly recommended for applications such as bucket pins and fifth wheels, where molybdenum disulphide provides an extra level of protection where sliding friction and oscillating motion can lead to rupturing of the oil film, resulting in metal-to-metal contact.

Servicing for excellence
Along with opting for the most advanced lubrication solutions, the growth of the construction sector is also dependent on smart servicing solutions such as oil monitoring and analysis. Employing precise monitoring services to check equipment health and performance is necessary to ensure greater productivity and profitability. Here, the Mobil ServSM Lubricant Analysis (MSLA) program is assisting construction businesses in evolving their core practices for better efficiency. MSLA offers a distinct advantage in conducting oil sampling up to 66% faster than peers*– translating into two-thirds savings in expected time. An alternate maintenance solution, the MSLA program eliminates the treacherous and conventional process of collecting and labelling samples by delivering pre-labelled sample bottles with QR codes and a unique number identifier, thereby, improving sample process efficiency and significantly reducing human interference.

The construction sector, today, is at a critical curve of its growth trajectory. The sector demands an amalgamation of the most advanced machinery, premium lubricants and quality service offerings that can together ensure smooth functioning and better productivity. Leading providers to the sector, like Mobil, must continue to align with changing industry trends to accelerate the advancement of the sector that is a critical contributor to our national economy.
