Global Automotive Lubricants Market to Reach US$ 90.8 Billion by 2027, Propelled by Considerable Rise in Number of On-road Vehicles

Published on Jul 27, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Automotive Lubricants Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027”, the global automotive lubricants market size reached a value of US$ 73.2 Billion in 2021. Automotive lubricants are liquids prepared with specialized oils and additives derived from petroleum sources for use in vehicles. By forming a friction-reducing layer, they reduce metal-on-metal contact and prevent rust accumulation. The usage of these lubricants also minimizes the heat generated between parts and improves the efficiency and function of critical components, such as engines, hinges, bearings, and hydraulic gears. In addition to this, the escalating demand for fuel-economical lubricants with an enhanced focus on improved vehicle performance is providing an impetus to the market growth.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Automotive Lubricants Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by a considerable rise in the number of on-road vehicles across the globe. This can be attributed to the increasing dependency on private vehicles for regular transportation and commuting. Stringent emission regulations undertaken by the government bodies of several countries have further resulted in a higher uptake of eco-friendly and sustainable automotive lubricants, which, in turn, is propelling the market. Besides this, continual technological advancements, such as the emergence of automotive lubricant variants for hybrid engines, next-generation hydraulic systems and innovative engine developments, are creating a positive outlook for the market. The inflating disposable income levels of the consumers resulting in rising spending capacity is also providing an impetus to the market. Some of the other factors contributing to the market include the growing adoption of low viscosity automotive lubricants, rapid urbanization, and extensive research and development (R&D) activities conducted by key players. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 90.8 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 3.59% during 2022-2027.
