This industry research report identifies Shell, ExxonMobil, BP, and Chevron Corporation as the key vendors in the global automotive lubricants market. A comprehensive analysis of this market is also presented by application type (passenger cars, M&HCV, and LCV) and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and Europe).

Overview of the global automotive lubricants market

Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the global automotive lubricants market will grow steadily at a CAGR of around 5% by 2021. The rise in fuel economy benefits due to stringent norms is identified as one of the primary growth factors for this market. The increasing levels of vehicular pollution have compelled the governing bodies of many countries to update their vehicle emissions norms at regular intervals. Countries such as China and the US are analyzing various solutions for lowering the dependency on petroleum-based fuels for energy and power. The implementation of fuel efficiency standards will encourage OEMs to increase the mileage of vehicles. This will in turn, push the demand for efficient lubricants that can assist in increasing the fuel economy of vehicles. For instance, the European Commission (EC) is looking at implementing fuel efficiency regulations for M&HCVs by 2018. It has also mandated that all the new vehicles in Europe should carry emissions labels that display the miles per gallon (mpg) and average carbon dioxide emissions (gCO2/km) to help drivers choose a fuel-efficient vehicle. This will induce OEMs to improve the composition of lubricants to enhance the efficiency of the engine.

The rising utilization of multigrade lubricants is one of the latest trends that will contribute to the growth of this market in the coming years. The usage of multigrade lubricants in Europe and North America is high due to their better cold pump-ability. Many countries in North America and Europe often face harsh winters. As a result, the engine start-up procedure is often delayed.  Multigrade oils offer improved performance in cold temperatures as they reduce the lead start-up time. The popular SAE 10W-30 conformant lubricants used in these regions consist of special polymer additives that keep the viscosity of the formulation constant despite a change in temperature. Therefore, cold weather protection and better mileage performance propel most consumers to opt for multigrade oils.
