Key Market Trends

Largest Segment By Product Type: Engine Oils

  • During 2015-2019, lubricant consumption in the Asia-Pacific commercial vehicle sector increased at a CAGR of 4.38%. Engine oil was the dominating lubricant product type in this sector, which accounted for a 69.68% share of lubricant consumption in 2020. Engine oil was followed by transmission oil, which accounted for around 13.67% of the lubricant consumption in 2020.
  • In 2020, post the COVID-19 outbreak, freight transportation significantly dropped due to the lockdowns put in place as a response to the pandemic. As a result, lubricant consumption in this sector fell by 6.30% in comparison to 2019.
