The market is categorized into engine oils, transmission oils, hydraulic fluids, and greases based on the product type. Engine oils play a crucial role in ensuring the smooth functioning of reciprocating parts and improving thermal stability for optimal engine performance. Regular replacement of engine oil is necessary to minimize sludge and contaminants, thus increasing engine lifespan. As a result of developments in chemical-free, bio-based lubricants, the market is expected to expand, providing better lubricity and reducing synthetic lubricant-related environmental impacts. Other factors contributing to market growth include increased consumer spending power and significant research and development (R&D) efforts to improve oil quality.


The market is also segmented into Asia-Pacific, Europe, North America, South America, Middle East & Africa based on the region. Due to the large-scale fleet of on-road vehicles in countries such as China, Japan, and India, the Asia-Pacific region dominates the global automotive lubricant market. The consumption of various automotive lubricants varies by country and region. For example, South Korea consumes more synthetic lubricants than India, with most of the consumption in commercial and passenger vehicles. Two-wheelers make up about one-fourth of the total lubricant demand in India, following commercial vehicles in automotive lubricant consumption. China currently holds a dominant position in the Asia-Pacific market due to its massive on-road automotive fleet and rising per capita lubricant consumption.

China and USA will grow at a CAGR of 3.45% and 5.15% respectively and will help boost the market during the forecast period.

Due to the implementation of lockdown to prevent COVID-19 pandemic, sales of automotive lubricants at the end of first quarter and in second quarter fell substantially in most of the countries affecting current year’s performance. Nevertheless, in most of the regions across the globe, the market recovered partially at the end of second quarter and completely in the third quarter. Hence, giving positive outlook to the market forecast for the year 2022.
