  • In South Africa, engine oils accounted for about 80.7% of the overall automotive lubricants in 2020. During 2015-2019, engine oil consumption increased at a CAGR of over 1.83%. The growing active vehicle fleet in the country was the key driver for this trend.
  • In 2020, the COVID-19 outbreak led to a massive decline in the usage rate of the existing vehicle fleets in the country, which led to an 8.54% dip in engine oil consumption. The commercial vehicle (CV) segment recorded the largest decline of 9.39% in engine oil consumption during 2019.
  • During 2021-2026, the motorcycles segment is expected to register the highest growth of 4.46% in engine oil consumption, followed by the CV segment (3.53%).
