DUBLIN, July 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The “Automotive Lubricants Market – Global Outlook & Forecast 2022-2027” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.
An automotive lubricant is used for lubricating automotive parts to minimize friction in vehicles. It also performs a variety of secondary roles. It aids in the cleaning and cooling of engine parts and the prevention of rust and corrosion accumulation. The automotive lubricant market is changing as the customers demand better-performing lubricants that would enhance the engine’s fuel economy and deliver better performance.
Advancements in technology-supported catering to diverse automotive needs such as increasing the shelf life of the engine, reducing carbon footprint, improving fuel economy, supplying lubricants with low viscosity, and meeting the changing vehicle emission standards. The increasing use of passenger cars and commercial vehicles in emerging has fueled the automotive lubricant market.
Market Trends & Drivers:
Increasing demand for passenger vehicles in emerging
The automotive industry in India, China, Braziland South Korea is growing rapidly because the global automotive market has developed enormously over the past decades in terms of markets, production capacity, and competitive standards. Emerging such as India and China are the most populated countries globally, enabling a huge domestic market. In addition, emerging countries have taken advantage of foreign direct investment and helped MNCs to set up their assembly plants in various countries.
Also, new industrial policies implemented by governments of emerging economies helped increase the automobile industry’s production capacity. As the international organization of motor vehicle manufacturers, since 2005, the automobile has shown rapid growth in an emerging industry because of low-cost raw materials, low cost of skilled labor, and increased foreign direct investment (FDI).
Rapid growth in urbanization and middle-income population
Rapid progress in urbanization, changing lifestyles, and growth in the middle-income population are some of the major opportunities for the market. As per the World Bank, about 75% of the world’s population resides in middle-income countries, and the population of middle-income countries is increasing annually by 1%. Also, the migration of people from rural to urban areas has rapidly increased in past years and is the main reason for the rapid growth in urbanization.
More than 80% of global GDP is generated through cities as urban areas develop at high rates. Infrastructure and industrial development are key factors contributing to rapid growth in the middle-income segment. In recent years, sectors like automotive and information technology have grown immensely in emerging farming because of the availability of low-cost raw materials, a huge investment in research and development, low cost of skilled labor, and availability of good quality infrastructure.
Countries such as China, Japan, Indonesia, India, USAUK, France, Canada, Italy, Germanyand Spain are investing in green chemistry and circular economy; These are the methods that help urbanization with sustainability to protect the environment in the coming years and, it creates a balance between infrastructure development and environment. This will help the automotive sector grow, and demand for automotive lubricants will also increase.
Increased Requirement for Alternate Powertrain Specific Lubricants
High investment in the automobile sector has posed a challenge of new requirements for lubricants as the sector is manufacturing vehicles that will have a low impact on the environment and deliver high performance. Also, the engine design requirements, transmission assembly, gearbox, and brake system are different for different manufacturers.
So, to meet this requirement lubricant industry must work with the automobile manufacturer and develop a new set of products that will be suitable for that vehicle. For instance, the thinner engine oil will help to secure fuel economy. But thinner engine oil might affect the engine functionality, which poses a challenge to lubricant manufacturers.
