2015 North American Category Management Report—Lubricants

2015 North American Category Management Report—Lubricants

Engine oil lubricants can be broadly classified into 3 categories: mineral engine oil, synthetic engine oil, and recycled engine oil. Synthetic engine oil can be further classified into full synthetics and synthetic blends. Replacement rates will likely decrease in the next 3 to 5 years as all forms of engine oil look to increase performance and decrease the frequency of replacement. Traditional market competitors will dominate the North American market. eRetail and eCommerce will likely become the preferred form of service channel for the do-it-yourself category. Market leaders will likely invest in research and development in the quest for better additive components. Synthetic engine oil is better positioned to absorb the advancements in this segment
