Automotive Lubricants Market Overview and Trends:

Automotive Lubricants market is estimated at USD 64.41 Million in 2019 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 3.5% to USD 76.5 Billion by 2024.

Lubricant is a material, generally natural, applied to reduce friction between surfaces in mutual contact, which eventually reduces the heat generated by moving surfaces. It may also have the purpose of transmitting forces, transporting foreign particles, or heating or cooling the air. The property of friction reduction is known as lubricity. Automotive lubricants improve the overall strength and operation of the vehicle and protect it from wear and tear, friction and high temperatures. The rise in consumer preference for high-quality synthetic lubricants is a crucial driver of this market. They exemplify modern innovations capable of producing robust surfaces, optimizing overall efficiency.

Drivers and Restraints of Automotive Lubricants Market:


  • Population growth and income growth offer numerous opportunities for the expansion of the automotive lubricants market.
  • The growth of the global automotive industry and the increase in demand for high-quality lubricants, which is expected to boost the overall growth of the automotive industry further.
  • The growth in the use of synthetic lubricants due to their superior characteristics, such as low emissions of volatile compounds and a comparatively thicker surface compared to traditional mineral oil lubricants, is expected to complement the global automotive lubricants market.


  • Volatile prices of raw materials are expected to hinder the overall growth of the automotive lubricants market.
  • The automobile lubricants market is a well-established one and also a highly competitive one with many regional players and many other large MCN’s. Few of these companies are continually investing in R&D for better synthetic oils. It is a bit difficult for new companies to join the game for market share.

Market Segmentation:

By Vehicle Type:

Based on the Vehicle Type, Automotive Lubricants market is segmented into, Personal Passenger Vehicle, Heavy Commercial Vehicles, and Light Commercial Vehicles. Of these, the category of passenger cars provides the highest market potential in the automotive lubricants industry due to an increase in global demand for these cars and general utility vehicles, with an increase in public transport costs. Increased consumer inclination towards secure and easy transport needs further boosts growth in this segment.

The use of automotive lubricants in LCVs has seen significant developments, leading to a steady increase in disposable income per capita and an increase in demand for commercial vehicles. The segment of passenger cars is expected to register a CAGR of 5.1% during the forecast period.

However, increasing concerns about environmental hazards associated with mineral oil lubricants may have an impact on overall market growth in developed and developing countries, but investment in R&D activities to produce novel synthetic lubricants is expected to provide opportunities for growth in the future.

By Application: 

Based on the Application, the Automotive Lubricants market is segmented into Engine Oil, Gear and Brake Oil, Transmission Fluids. Of these, engine oil accounted for the highest revenue share of more than 52% of the total market for automotive lubricants. Engine oil is commonly used in passenger cars, diesel trucks, and light-duty trucks. This helps maintain viscosity, maintains reliability and reduces engine wear. In addition, the demand for engine oil is likely to grow at a substantial pace over the forecast period due to increased sales of IC engines specifically in the Asia Pacific and South America.
