Automotive Lubricants Market Key Takeaways

Lubricant is a fluidic material that is used to minimize wear and tear by reducing friction between contact surfaces. Depending on end-uses, it is made using appropriate additives and base oils from specific groups. Automotive lubricants are essential for a vehicle's efficient operation and protection. A variety of automotive lubricants is available in the market, each having a different source or base oil. Mineral-based lubricants comprise the majority of lubricants. In the automotive sector, lubricants are utilized in a variety of applications, including brake systems, fuel systems, body component stamping, and gearbox production. Automotive lubricants help in temperature control by collecting heat generated by the vehicle's moving parts and transmitting it to the sump or cooler.

Market Trends, Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities

Drivers

  • Rising adoption of high-performance lubricants is expected to spur the market growth during the forecast period. Automotive lubricants play a vital role in maintaining the appropriate and improved operation of consumer and industrial vehicles in a variety of challenging and severe environments. Tractor engine oils maintain and ensure a tractor's performance in harsh environments and field circumstances and enable hardware compatibility with unbroken toughness and quality.
  • Growing demand for high-performance and lightweight vehicles is estimated to fuel the market in the coming years. As the number of vehicles on the road increases, the demand for lubricants increases.
  • Rising disposable income across the globe and economic expansion are anticipated to boost the market during the forecast period.

Restraints

  • Growing demand for electric vehicles is projected to hinder the market growth during the forecast period. Electric vehicle sales are expected to increase in the coming years, presenting a challenge to market growth, as these vehicles do not consume engine oil.
