Market Overview

The United Kingdom Automotive Lubricants Market is at 184.01 million liters in 2021 and is projected to register a CAGR of 2.08% to reach 203.99 million liters in 2026. The transportation restrictions imposed by the government to curb the spread of COVID-19 have led to a decline in vehicle sales and maintenance needs in the country causing a decline of over 15%, in the automotive lubricants segment, in 2020.

  • Largest Segment by Vehicle Type - Passenger Vehicles : In the passenger vehicles sector, the requirement for regular service cycles and the need for high annual mileage resulted in the highest lubricant consumption levels.
  • Fastest Segment by Vehicle Type - Motorcycles : The expected recovery in motorcycle sales and production in the United Kingdom since 2021 is likely to drive their demand for lubricants during the forecast period.
  • Largest Segment by Product Type - Engine Oils : Engine oils form the leading product type due to their high volume requirements and short drain intervals, as they are used in high-temperature and high-pressure applications.
  • Fastest Segment by Product Type - Hydraulic Fluids : The expected recovery in automotive sales and production in the United Kingdom since 2021 is likely to drive the demand for hydraulic fluids during the forecast period.
