The Indonesia lubricants market is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 4% during the forecast period.

The automotive supply industry was hit hard by the COVID-19 crisis, as both production and sales of motor vehicles came to a sudden halt in most regions. These work stoppages resulted in the loss of production of millions of vehicles worldwide. In the automotive industry, lubricants are widely used to control friction and wear in the engine, to protect the engine from corrosion and the engine oil stored in the sump from the exhaust gas, and to cool the pistons. However, the demand for lubricants in the country recovered in 2021 and is expected to rise significantly in the coming years.

Key Highlights

  • Over the short term, increasing demand from ASEAN countries and increasing usage of high-performance lubricants will likely drive market growth.
  • However, the detrimental effects of lubricants on the environment will hinder the market.
  • Nevertheless, the growing prominence of bio-lubricants is likely to act as an opportunity in the future.
