Key Market Trends

Largest Segment By Product Type : Engine Oils

  • After two years of steady growth, lubricant consumption in passenger vehicles in France has been consistently declining since 2017. The implementation of strict emission standards in the country has been driving the phasing out of diesel cars, which in turn, has resulted in a decline in the consumption of engine oils in passenger vehicles in the country.
  • In 2020, post the COVID-19 outbreak, the usage of passenger cars in France had significantly dropped due to the restrictions put in place due to the pandemic, resulting in a 23.29% drop in lubricant consumption.
  • The resurgence in the sales of vehicles in France by the end of 2020 was impacted partly by production shortages and the second wave of COVID-19 in 2021. Expected economic and trade recoveries are projected to support the passenger vehicle lubricant consumption at a CAGR of 3.03% during 2021-2026.
