2020 Insights on the Lubricants Industry - North America and APAC are Expected to be the Most Affected Regions due to COVID-19 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

The "COVID-19 Impact on Lubricants Market by Product type (Engine Oil, Hydraulic Oil, Compressor Oil, Metalworking Fluid, Gear Oil, Turbine Oil and Grease), End-use Industry and Region - Global Forecast to 2021" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Global lubricants market is forecasted to recover in 2021 after negative impact to COVID-19.

The decline in the global lubricants market is primarily due to the spread of COVID-19 across the globe, impacting the functioning of key end-use industries using lubricants. Almost the entire world has been under lockdown in different periods to prevent the spread of the virus, leading to the suspension of industrial and transportation activities.

Engine oil to be the most affected product type segment in the global lubricants market.

Engine oil is the largest and most affected product type segment in the lubricants market. It is expected to witness a negative impact due to lockdown, as demand from the passenger vehicle segment is at an all-time low. The demand is relatively low in the commercial segment as well. OEMs have also halted production, which has further decreased the demand for engine oil. Due to nationwide lockdown, Germany, the US, China, India, and France have witnessed a downfall in traffic and very little to no automotive movement.

Transportation is the largest and most affected end-use industry segment in the global lubricants market.

Currently, all heavy transport is suspended at least for a month. However, due to a few of the necessary goods still being produced and transported, such as food products, metal and mining, and healthcare products, commercial fleets are operating at very low output. This will have a huge impact on the commercial vehicle segment. In 2020, the market is expected to fall, as per industry experts. After the lockdown is over, the market will grow as the industry will have to finish supply laggards and pending orders. Especially when all the important industries will resume production, the supply chain industry is expected to get boom from the start.

North America and APAC are expected to be the most affected region for lubricants market due to COVID-19.

The APAC and North American lubricants markets are adversely affected by COVID-19 and expected to witness a decline in the market in 2020. The market is also expected to witness recovery in 2021. Although Europe is one of the major hotspots for COVID-19, it is expected to witness lesser impacts than North America and APAC because of their large number of manufacturing industries and vehicles on road. Governments in different countries are imposing lockdown to avoid the spread of the coronavirus, which has made industries, such as cement production, automotive manufacturing, chemical, and oil & gas, suspend their operations. It is affecting the demand for lubricants.
