The Global Automotive Lubricants Market was valued at $64,716 million in 2015, and is projected to reach $89,585 million by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 4.8% from 2016 to 2022. Automotive lubricants are fluids that are used to reduce the wear & tear of vehicle parts and thus the overall friction. Their primary function is to avoid metal-to-metal contact among engine and other vehicle parts. Automotive lubricants exhibit excellent demulsibility and corrosion protection properties, and extend the overall vehicle life, improve efficiency of the vehicle, and aid in achieving higher productivity. The selection of lubricants for a particular vehicle depends on a wide range of factors, such as exposure to temperature and harsh environmental conditions.

The market has witnessed significant growth opportunities globally, owing to increase in the production and demand for automobiles, and growth in demand for advanced technologies and better quality products. Furthermore, rise in per capita disposable income, overall economic growth, and upsurge in number of vehicles demanding servicing and reconditioning are further anticipated to boost the market growth during the forecast period. Moreover, rise in demand for repair, maintenance, and renovation of old vehicles; and increase in consumption of synthetic lubricants, owing to its superior characteristic properties, such as low emissions of volatile compounds and relatively thicker layer as compared to traditional mineral oil lubricants, are anticipated to supplement the global market. However, volatile prices of raw materials and difficulty in sourcing these raw materials are expected to hamper this growth.

The global automotive lubricants market is categorized on the basis of base oil, application, vehicle type, and geography. The base oil segment consists of mineral oil, synthetic, semisynthetic, and bio-based lubricants. Based on application, the market is broadly classified into engine oil, gear & brake oil, transmission fluids, greases, and others. By vehicle type, it is divided into passenger cars, light commercial vehicles (LCVs), heavy commercial vehicles (HCVs), and others.
