Global Automotive Lubricants Market

Global Automotive Lubricants Market

The automotive lubricants market is estimated at 19,244.73 kilo tons in 2018 and is projected to reach 21,720.60 kilo tons by 2023, at a CAGR of 2.44% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2023.

Lubricants play a vital role in numerous commercial and industrial sectors such as automotive, marine, manufacturing, and aviation. Automotive applications like engine oil and brake oil dominate the lubricants market. The automobile manufacturers, to ensure the proper functioning of the components and reduce the wear and tear, use lubricants to reduce friction between the moving parts of automobiles. In addition, they also help in cooling the components and in debris removal. One of the vital properties of the automotive lubricants is the viscosity, i.e., the fluid's ability to resist motion. Consequently, the use of lubricants helps in reducing friction, in turn enhancing fuel efficiency as well as the longevity of automotive components.

Lubricants, owing to their thermal stability, high viscosity index, high boiling and low freezing point, corrosion resistance, and high resistance to oxidation, is becoming an integral part of automotive engine brake, gear, and transmission fluid. In the automotive lubricants market report, we have taken the following applications into consideration: engine oil, gear and brake oil, and transmission fluid.

Drivers for the global automotive lubricants market are:

Increasing Automotive Sales in the Emerging Markets
Increasing Adoption of High-Performce Lubricants
Restraints faced by the global automotive lubricants market are:
