Figure 1: Motorcycle Engine Oil Market- Market Scope

The Motorcycle Engine Oil Market size was estimated at USD XX million in 2020 and is projected to register a CAGR of XX% to reach USD XX million by 2028. A motorcycle engine consists of various motor components that work together to convert fuel energy into mechanical force. As a result, the various parts of the engine come into contact with one another, causing friction. To keep the bike running smoothly, it needs to get its engine oil changed on a regular basis. Engine oil provides engine protection, long engine life, low friction, enhanced oxidation resistance, easy engine start-up, improved fuel efficiency, smoother gear shifts, and longer wet-clutch action.

With rising disposable income, demand for vehicles such as motorcycles and scooters are on the rise, and as a result, demand for engine oil is also increasing rapidly. The growth of the motorcycle engine oil market is being driven by the steady increase in motorcycles sales, especially in emerging countries. Growing demand for scooters and motorcycles is being attributed to the growing use of two-wheelers as the primary mode of transportation, increasing mobility due to urbanization, aspiration to own a vehicle, and growing demand for goods carriers from small and medium-sized businesses, all of which are positively affecting the growth of the motorcycle engine oil market.

Electric micro mobility solutions have grown steadily since their introduction in 2017, according to the International Energy Agency's 2020 outlook, with shared electric scooters (e-scooters), electric-assist bicycles (e-bikes), and electric mopeds now available in over 600 cities across more than 50 countries. 350 million electric two- and three-wheelers, the most of which are in China, account for 25% of all two- and three-wheelers in use ly. This aspect can have a direct negative effect on the motorcycle engine oil market's growth and can limit future market expansion.

The motorcycle engine oil market report is segmented on the basis of engine capacity (CC), grades, oil type, and end use.

Figure 2: Motorcycle Engine Oil Market- By Engine Capacity (CC)

Based on engine capacity (CC),  motorcycle engine oil market is classified into <110, 110-200, 200-400, and >400. The use of 100-200 CC engine capacity motorcycles is significantly increasing in developing countries owing to the high mileage and are less costly as compare to higher CC capacity motorcycles. This factor directly positively impacts the motorcycle engine oil market.

Figure 3: Motorcycle Engine Oil Market- By Oil Type

Based on oil type,  motorcycle engine oil market is categorized into mineral, semi-synthetic, and fully-synthetic. The mineral-based oil segment is expected to hold major market share followed by the semi-synthetic, and fully-synthetic. The majority of vehicles use mineral-based oil, which is the most basic form of oil. It's a refined petroleum oil that's been treated to function over a broad temperature range and strengthened with other additives to fulfill the needs of a two-wheeler. Mineral oil-based lubricants have greater additive solubility and are more compatible with seals. Furthermore, they are less costly than the other two forms of oil.

Synthetic engine oils have been in high demand across the globe. Synthetic engine oils are used in the majority of high-performance motorcycles (>500cc) due to their excellent lubrication and high-temperature resistance properties.

Based on end use, motorcycle engine oil market is bifurcated into OEM, and aftermarket. The aftermarket segment is expected to hold major market share owing to the growing demand of used motorcycles in developing countries as well as to keep the new bike running smoothly, strategy to change engine oil on a regular basis driving the aftermarket segment growth. Since most commuter bikes have a 110cc-125cc engine and a low engine oil volume, 1L bottles are the most common replacement/aftermarket segment. 2.5L bottles are more popular for engines with engine capacity greater than 200cc.

Figure 5: Motorcycle Engine Oil Market- By Region

By region, the motorcycle engine oil market is segmented as North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America. The Asia Pacific is anticipated to grow significantly over the forecast period of the market. The demand for two-wheelers has increased substantially in developing countries such as India, Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, Bangladesh, and the Philippines, resulting in an increase in two-wheeler engine oil consumption. Raising urbanisation, increasing incomes, a growing population, and increased competition among two-wheeler manufacturers have resulted in lower vehicle prices that can be afforded by a majority of people in the region.

The demand for mopeds and scooters has recently increased, owing to manufacturers' efforts to expand the two-wheeler market in Asia by targeting senior citizens and women. In addition, one of the factors pushing up engine oil demand is the entry of international manufacturers into the region. Used bikes are in high demand in Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, the Philippines, and other countries, that may pose to high consumption of engine oil these countries. In terms of two-wheeler use, India is one of the world's fastest-growing countries. Honda, Bajaj, Hero, and Suzuki are the major two-wheeler manufacturing companies in India that have seen recent positive growth.

In terms of consumption, China dominated the Asian motorcycle engine oil market. Owing to rapidly increasing vehicle sales, China's automotive industry has experienced tremendous growth in the last decade. During the forecast timeframe, the China motorcycle engine oil market is expected to be driven by rising vehicle demand and rising disposable income.
