The global Automotive Engine Oil Market scope was appreciated at US$ 35.67 billion during 2017. It is expected to increase by the projected CAGR of 3.7% from 2019 to 2025 and is expected to stretch US$ 48.1 billion by the completion of 2025.

The purpose of engine oil in vehicles is to decrease metal-to-metal touching base to minimalize general rubbing and decrease impairment. Friction is one of the most important causes of engine high temperature in automobiles. This creates extra wear and distorts moving portions of the engine. The oil in the automobile engine generates a thin layer of lubrication on entire metallic portions which offers the smooth movement of the parts above each other, consequently decreasing rubbing.

Furthermore, the automotive engine oil takes away minor particles of dirt and additional contaminations existing in the fuel of automobiles. Additionally, it covers the gap between the cylinder walls and the pistons. Hence the combustion of the fuel takes place, efficiently. It likewise covers entire moving parts of the automotive engine to deliver a protective coating counter to corrosion.


The growing manufacture of automobiles and the call for artificial and conventional products are the important features motivating this business. The sales of the automotive vehicles have displayed a continuous growth during the previous limited years, mostly in the Europe and Asia Pacific areas, because of the customer’s increasing capability of expenditure and rising population.

Growth in demand for goods transporters from medium, small and micro-size enterprises, growing movement owing to the expansion of Satellite Township close to megacities, the increasing ambition of possessing private means of transportation, increasing middle class, growing per head earnings and emerging set up of surface transport are powering the automotive engine oil industry in Asia Pacific area.  The increasing aftermarket of automobiles and the growing culture of Do It Yourself (DIY) in Europe and North America is also stimulating the development of automotive engine oil in the retail sector of these two provinces.


The global automotive engine oil market can be classified by Vehicle, Engine, Grade, and Region. By type of vehicle, it can be classified as Motorcycles, Light Commercial Vehicles, Heavy-Duty Vehicles, and Passenger Cars. By type of Engine, it can be classified as Alternative Fuel, Gasoline, and Diesel. By Grade, it can be classified as Fully-synthetic, Semi-synthetic, Mineral. By Region, it can be classified as North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa.

Regional Lookout:

By Region, the global automotive engine oil market can be classified as North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. The Asia Pacific is the leading provincial market due to growing demand for the product from emerging markets, for example, Vietnam, India, and Thailand. Better-quality performance and products owing to strict guidelines by the American Petroleum Institute (API) and Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) have likewise added to the development of the region. Contrariwise, in numerous European nations, E-Mobility has risen. This is the interference of battery-driven Electric Vehicles.

Furthermore, a synthetic alternative that proposes an extended round of fuel transformation, is extremely used up in the province. This is causing a reasonable reduction in the demand. This, sequentially, will disturb the general market in the province. Brazil is the principal car exporter to Columbia and Argentina in the region of Latin America. Over half of the German patented cars of the Columbian market are factory-made in Brazil. Dissimilar to the U.S.A, vehicles running on diesel engines and substitute fuel are very infrequent in Latin America. However, the automobile segment is steered by ethanol and gasoline-fueled automobiles.

The Middle Eastern market for engine oil has got the most solid smash owing to a drop in the prices of petroleum products. On the other hand, growing funds from global companies might improve the local market. The African market is steered by additional vehicles imported from advanced nations. The general involvement of Africa in the global sector of automobile manufacturing is minuscule.


The manufacturing companies of automotive engine oil emphasize the development of new-fangled additives, for example, Nanometric Tungsten Di Sulphide powder. This is utilized, together with metal deactivators, detergents, and dispersants, to offer a protecting coating and decrease friction.

The risk of new-fangled competitors is comparatively small because it needs enormous principal investment and wide-ranging exploration on evolving the product. Additionally, sources of main raw material are acquired by nationwide companies. Here providers have the maximum power of negotiating.

Some of the important companies for the automotive engine oil market are Motul, ENI GmbH, Petroleum Nasional Berhad (PETRONAS), Valvoline, ExxonMobil Corporation, Sinopec Petroleum & Chemical Corp, Fuchs Petrolub SE, Castrol, and Royal Dutch Shell PLC.
