Auto lubricant is a substance introduced to reduce friction between moving surfaces. It may also have the function of transporting foreign particles. The property of reducing friction is known as lubricity (or slipperiness).
Auto lubricant as its name implies have to perform in different types of vehicles both petrol and diesel under a variety of operating conditions. Modern vehicles are fuel efficient and comfortable with high levels of performance. They are required to meet stringent emission norms. Quality requirement of such lubricants are established by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) and are specified in its classification system.
In the last years, with the development of macro economy and the flourish of automotive industry, auto lubricant industry got a rapid development. In the world market, supply has been adequate with the main manufacturers as Shell, ExxonMobil, BP and Total.
Now, as overall economic downward trend in China and complicated international economic situation in the world, there will be many uncertainties in the next few years. The growth rate of global capacity may be slower than the last years, while the capacity of auto lubricants in China may be higher than in other regions.
According to our research and analysis, manufacturers from US and EU are the major leaders in the international market of auto lubricants. Manufacturers from China are immature in technology. There is large space in the China market, as well as big gap between international brands and local brands on performance.
In next years, with the increase of automotive production and population, the demand of auto lubricants will be larger in China. Then, there will be more foreign companies come into China to occupy the market. To maintain the market share, manufacturers in China must spend more on research and development.
Although sales of auto lubricants brought a lot of opportunities, for the new entrants with only advantage in capital without sufficient support in technology and downstream channels, the research group did not recommend taking risk the enter this market.
