Drivers & Restraints:

Rising Demand for Synthetic Automotive Engine Oil to Drive Growth

The automotive engine oil market is expected to grow due to the increasing demand for synthetic automotive engine oil, which is seen as a replacement for mineral-based oils. This demand is particularly high in developed regions such as Europe and North America. Synthetic oil, with its chemical properties similar to mineral-based oil, offers extended oil change intervals, reduced oil consumption, and improved fuel efficiency. It is also more resistant to oxidation, less volatile, and more stable across temperature variations. However, sustainability challenges in the highly competitive market could hinder growth in the near future.

Segment Analysis:

Diesel Segment Expected to Grow Substantially Due to Cost Efficiency

The market is segmented by engine type into alternative fuels, petrol, and diesel. In 2018, the diesel segment held 43.38% of the automotive engine oil market share, driven by the cost-effective nature of diesel engines compared to petrol engines. Diesel engines are approximately 40% more efficient due to their higher energy output and reduced carbon dioxide emissions during the combustion process.
