Key Market Trends
Largest Segment By Product Type : Engine Oils
- The share of the passenger vehicles (PV) segment in the automotive lubricants market decreased from 68.91% in 2015 to 66.41% in 2019. Consumption of lubricants in the PV segment however recorded a CAGR of 1.76% during 2015-2019. This trend was directly proportional to the number of vehicles in use.
- In 2020, passenger car population increased by 0.82%, which was quite low compared to the growth rate in the past few years. The consumption of lubricants in the PV segment experienced a drop of 15.25% in 2020.
- The increasing consumer preference to buy used cars is estimated to grow the population of cars in the future. Currently, Bulgaria does not have strict emission standards or a scrappage policy. Hence, few European countries tend to export their old vehicles to Bulgaria. As a result, the consumption in the PV segment is expected to record a CAGR of 1.79% during 2021-2026.
