The France Commercial Vehicles Lubricants Market is at 162.38 million liters in 2021 and is projected to register a CAGR of 1.85% to reach 177.95 million liters in 2026. The impact of the social restrictions implemented to curb COVID-19 was less severe on commercial vehicles in comparison to passenger vehicles, as freight transportation was considered an essential activity and exempted from travel restrictions in many regions of the country.

Key Highlights

  • Largest Segment by Product Type - Engine Oils: Engine oil is the leading product type due to its high volume requirements and low drain intervals. It is used for high-temperature and high-pressure applications.
  • Fastest Segment by Product Type - Hydraulic Fluids: In France, the expected recovery in the production and sales of commercial vehicles since 2021 is likely to boost their grease consumption during the forecast period.

Key Market Trends

Largest Segment By Product Type: Engine Oils

  • After gradual growth during 2015-2017, the consumption of lubricants for commercial vehicles in France has been reducing since 2018 due to the continuously declining average annual mileage of commercial vehicles.
  • Post the COVID-19 outbreak, freight transportation in the country has been negatively affected due to the social restrictions imposed due to the pandemic during the first half of 2020. As a result, lubricant consumption in commercial vehicles in the country decreased by 14.12% due to delayed maintenance requirements.
  • The recovering commercial vehicle sales in the country are likely to boost lubricant consumption in the coming years. However, the expected growth in the penetration of electric vehicles is anticipated to reduce engine oil consumption. Thus, commercial vehicle lubricant consumption is expected to increase, recording a CAGR of 1.85% during 2021-2026.
