Factors contributing to the growth of lubricants demand include growing vehicle sales, increasing emissions and vehicle safety regulations and rapid industrialization. Bio lubricants and synthetic lubricants are also becoming popular.
The lubricant market is dominated by the oil majors. Some of the leading companies operating in the global lubricants market include Royal Dutch Shell, Exxon Mobil Corporation, British Petroleum, Total, Chevron Corporation, Fuchs Lubricants, PetroChina and Sinopec.
Among the base oils, Group I Base Oil accounts for more than half of the total base oil production, but the trend towards better and efficient lubricants is resulting in substitutability of Group I to Group II and Group III base oils. Further, technological shifts and tighter environmental requirements are also facilitating the shift to Group II and Group III base oils and this could be evident from major capacity additions of the two groups of base oils in the year 2014.
