The France Automotive Engine Oils Market is at 193.29 million liters in 2021 and is projected to register a CAGR of 1.99% to reach 213.25 million liters in 2026. In 2020, COVID-19 resulted in a significant drop in passenger car and truck sales in the country, owing to the reduced travel needs of the population. Another major challenge faced by the market segment has been the low incentives for the dealers to move cars. Comparatively, the effect of the lockdown on commercial vehicle sales is lower than on passenger vehicles.
  • Largest Segment by Vehicle Type - Commercial Vehicles : The high average engine oil volume requirement of commercial vehicles, in turn, contributed to the highest engine oil consumption in the French commercial vehicles sector.
  • Fastest Segment by Vehicle Type - Motorcycles : In France, the expected recovery in the production and sales of motorcycles since 2021 is likely to boost their engine oil consumption during the forecast period.

Key Market Trends

Largest Segment By Vehicle Type : Commercial Vehicles

  • After steady growth during 2015-2017, France's automotive engine oil consumption has been consistently decreasing since 2018. Due to the country's strict emission standards, the declining diesel-based passenger fleet has been the major factor dictating this trend.
  • In 2020, the COVID-19 outbreak resulted in a major decline in the usage of the existing vehicle fleet of the country, in turn causing 17.61% decline in engine oil consumption compared to 2019.
  • Despite the expected recovery in sales and production of passenger vehicles, an increase in the penetration of electric vehicles is likely to have a negative impact on engine oil consumption. Additionally, the persisting COVID-19 crisis is expected to hinder the growth of engine oil consumption in the country for a brief period. Hence, engine oil consumption is anticipated to record a CAGR of 1.99% during 2021-2026.
