2017 Report on Emerging Issues and Trends in Tribology and Lubrication Engineering


STLE’s 2017 Report on Emerging Issues and Trends in Tribology and Lubrication Engineering
builds on industry research first conducted in 2014. Research included 
approximately 15 interviews with industry experts to identify new areas to investigate or trends to further explore, followed by a literature review of recent industry publications, conference abstracts and other materials. A survey launched in April 2017 collected more than 900 respondents from professionals across the tribology field; data were shared with about 30 industry experts to provide context and narrative to the quantitative findings.

Key findings in the report were divided among several categories that fall under two key headings: Field Discipline Areas, which provides an in-depth look into trends and technologies in the areas of transportation, medical/health, energy, manufacturing, communications and data management and atomistic processes, and Field Issues, which looks at critical factors affecting the industry: outlook on the field, government regulation, safety and the environment and basic human needs.
