Key Market Trends

Largest Segment By Product Type: Engine Oils

  • In Japan, commercial vehicles formed the second largest segment and accounted for 48.3% of lubricant consumption. During 2015-2019, lubricant consumption in the commercial vehicle segment declined at a CAGR of 2.64% due to the high rate of phasing out of older trucks, which led to a decline in the on-road population of commercial vehicles.
  • In 2020, commercial vehicle lubricant consumption declined by 12.28% as the COVID-19 pandemic affected production. In terms of lubricant consumption by commercial vehicles, engine oil accounted for a 61.79% share, followed by greases (16.14%) and transmission oils (11.99%). A major dip of 13.54% was observed in the consumption of transmission oils by commercial vehicles during the year.
  • During 2021-26, the hydraulic fluids segment is likely to be the fastest-growing segment, recording a CAGR of 2.24%. This growth is likely to be driven by the rise in freight transportation activities and the penetration of electric trucks in the market.
