Key Market Trends

Largest Segment By End User : Automotive

  • In 2020, the Middle Eastern lubricant market was dominated by the automotive industry, which accounted for around 58.9% of the total lubricant consumption in the country. During 2015-2019, lubricant consumption in the automotive industry increased by around 8.69%.
  • In 2020, COVID-19-related restrictions led to decreased maintenance requirements from several industries. The major impact was observed in the automotive industry, which recorded a dip of 6.86% during 2019-2020, followed by heavy equipment (6.1%) during the year.
  • Power generation is expected to be the fastest-growing end-user industry of the market studied, recording a CAGR of 5.33% during 2021-2026, followed by automotive (3.22%). The growing capacity addition of power generation in the country is anticipated to drive lubricant consumption in the power generation industry.

Largest Country : Iran

  • In 2020, Iran was the leading consumer of lubricants in the Middle Eastern region, accounting for around 34.6% of the region's total lubricant consumption. During 2015-2019, lubricant consumption in Iran increased by 4.36%.
  • In 2020, the COVID-19 outbreak restrained the operations of several industries, including lubricant consumption, across the Middle Eastern region. The United Arab Emirates was the most affected, with a 9.1% drop in its lubricant consumption during 2019-2020, followed by Qatar (8.3% drop).
  • Turkey is likely to be the fastest-growing lubricants market in the Middle East during the forecast period, with a CAGR of around 4.94%.
