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 2020, 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.
