The demand for high-grade lubricant oils in the automotive industry, and stringent environmental legislation leading to strict performance standards drive the growth of the market. However, the fluctuating costs of crude oil and regulations concerning emission norms are expected to hamper the market growth in the future. The global shift from Group I base oils to Group II & III present numerous growth opportunities to market players.
The automotive oil segment accounted for almost half the share of the total base oil market in 2016, in terms of value, and is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. However, application of base oils in industrial oils is expected to grow at a comparatively high rate due to stricter emission norms in EU and EPA regions.
The global economy profits from declining oil costs because of high financial multiplier in the emerging oil-importing economies. Therefore, base oil utilization in the automotive sector is expected to grow through both increasing purchasing power (new and second-hand automotive deals) and expanding vehicle usage. This growth is estimated to be particularly noticeable in the developing countries, and control the decline in Group I base oil demand.
Key Findings of the Base oil Market:
- In terms of value, the automotive segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of 1.2% during the forecast period.
- In Asia-Pacific, China is estimated to grow at a highest CAGR of 1.3%, in terms of value.
- Industrial oil application in terms of volume occupied around one-third share of the global market in 2016.
- The U.S. accounted for nearly one-sixth share of the base oil market in 2016, and is expected to grow at a significant CAGR of 0.8%, in terms of value.
In 2016, North America and Asia-Pacific collectively accounted for more than two-thirds of the entire global base oil market, in value terms. Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. High automotive lubricant demand and industrial growth from emerging countries, such as China, India, South Korea, and Australia, are estimated to drive the market growth.
