Published Date: | Report Code : AT1920909


The automotive lubricants market growth is expected to gain high momentum during the forecast period due to complex engine and transmission system designs.

Increasing complex designs for automotive engines, transmission systems, is leading to the demand for more advanced lubricants to operate in extreme conditions. Moreover, recycling is another key factor influencing the growth of the automotive lubricants market. The automotive sector has witnessed recovery in a few years. Moreover, lubricants form key constituents of automotive aftermarket consumables. Moreover, the average life of vehicles has expanded to 11 years due to automotive lubricants.

An automotive lubricant is a substance, typically natural, introduced to carry out two essential tasks. The first one is to control friction and wear, which it does by isolating the two collaborating machine surfaces with a film. The second task is temperature control. The automotive lubricant retains heat, diverts it from the component, and disseminates it in the sump or a cooler.
