Lubricants are available in liquid, semi-fluid, or solid state, and possess various characteristics, such as, high viscosity index, high level of thermal stability, low freezing point, and high boiling point, all of which help to reduce friction between surfaces of machine parts and the rate of wear, without compromising operational efficiency.

Fluctuations in Automotive Lubricant Demand

There has been a drop in the sales of new motor vehicles in countries, such as Saudi Arabia, Iraq, UAE and Kuwait in the past 2 years. This can be majorly attributed to the fall in the crude oil prices and a subsequent impact on the economic scenario in the countries. Iraq has witnessed a drastic dip in the sales by a rate of almost 50% between 2015 & 2016. UAE, the second biggest automotive market in the GCC has also seen a gradual decrease in the sales of new motor vehicles between 2013 to 2016. Despite these fluctuations in the sales since the past few years, planned investments by global automotive manufacturers and government steps to boost the manufacturing industry in the Middle-East region are expected to create a surge in the demand for automotive lubricants in the coming years.
