Key Market Trends

Largest Segment By End User : Automotive

  • In 2020, the automotive industry dominated the North American lubricants market, accounting for around 47.6% of the total lubricant consumption in the country. During 2015-2019, lubricant consumption in the automotive industry increased at a CAGR of 0.22%.
  • In 2020, COVID-19-related restrictions led to a decline in the maintenance requirements from several industries. The major impact was observed in the automotive industry, which recorded a dip of 17.3% during the year, followed by heavy equipment (13.56%).
  • Automotive is likely to be the fastest-growing end-user industry of the North American lubricants market during 2021-2026, with a CAGR of 2.84%, followed by metallurgy and metalworking. A recovery in the average mileage of vehicles and new vehicle sales is likely to drive lubricant consumption in the automotive industry during the forecast period.

Largest Country : United States

  • In 2020, the United States was the leading consumer of lubricants in the North American region, accounting for around 79.2% of the total lubricant consumption. During 2015-2019, lubricant consumption in the United States increased by a CAGR of 0.67%.
  • In 2020, the COVID-19 outbreak restrained the operations of several industries, thereby restraining lubricant consumption across the North American region. The United States was the most affected, with a 13.7% drop in its lubricant consumption, followed by Mexico with a 13.1% drop.
  • Mexico is likely to be the fastest-growing lubricant market during the forecast period, registering a CAGR of 3.5%, followed by the United States (2.5%). The expected recovery in automotive production and sales in Mexico is likely to drive lubricant consumption.
