Automotive Lubricant Market Size, Share, Growth, Trends, Production, Consumption and Forecast 2020 to 2027

The global automotive lubricant market size is expected to surpass US$ 120 Bn by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of more than 4% during the forecast period 2020 to 2027.

Increased number of on-road vehicles, globally, is driving the automotive lubricant market. Average age of vehicles has increased with more number of people preferring to retain their vehicle. Consequently, an increased number of ageing vehicles on the road need maintenance, thereby driving the demand for automotive lubricant.

Demand for lower viscosity oils has increased due to their ability to improve engine performance and fuel economy. OEMs are recommending lower viscosity lubricants and shifting the OEM and aftermarket demand toward better quality synthetic /semi-synthetic oils. Consumers are becoming more aware about maintenance of their vehicle’s health. Synthetic/Semi-synthetic oils are expensive but have longer drain interval time and hence, adoption of these oils is a win-win situation for both manufacturers and consumers. Therefore, the market is moving toward higher value lubricants. API or API-equivalent standards are followed globally in order to curb rising emission and maintain minimum performance of lubricants. Rising performance requirements are prompting OEMs to seek better quality lubricants, which in turn is boosting the automotive lubricant market.

Vehicle users in North America and Europe prefer automatic transmission, which contributes to the high demand for automatic transmission fluid (ATF) in these regions. Asia Pacific is witnessing a technology shift from manual to automatic transmission, owing to the rising demand for continuously variable transmission and dual clutch transmission. This is expected to drive the demand for ATF in the region.

Automotive lubricants are predominantly utilized to reduce friction and enable smooth functioning of a vehicle. They are also used for transfer of heat, transmission of power, and protection against corrosion and rust.

Rise in number of on-road vehicles is a major driver of the automotive lubricant market. Rising dependency on private transport, economic stability, and increasing consumer affordability are boosting the usage of vehicles, which in turn is driving the demand for automotive lubricant. The average age of vehicles has increased to 11 years. Presence of ageing vehicle fleet improves the maintenance scope, thus driving the automotive lubricant market. OEM recommendation on usage of quality lubricants, such as synthetic/ semi-synthetic oil as they offer better lubrication than mineral oil, is expected to boost the demand for quality lubricants. Rise in consumer awareness and affordability is driving the usage of high quality lubricants, thus boosting the market of automotive lubricant. Government bodies are establishing minimum performance standards for lubricants in order to control rising emissions. Thus, prompting the utilization of low viscosity lubricants such as synthetic / semi-synthetic oil. Synthetic / Semi-synthetic oil has longer drain intervals as compared to mineral oil and hence, are being increasingly preferred by consumers. Moreover, synthetic/semi-synthetic oils account for a higher share of the market share, in terms of revenue, as these oils are more expensive than the mineral oils.

Rising sales of electric vehicles is expected to decline the consumption of automotive lubricant. Battery electric vehicles eliminate the need for engine oil due to the absence of the IC engine. Furthermore, electric vehicles have fewer reciprocating parts and hence, rising adoption of electric vehicles is expected to hamper the automotive lubricant market.
