 U.S. automotive engine oil market size, by product, 2020 - 2030 (USD Billion)

The global automotive engine oil market is characterized by the integration of raw material suppliers. Base oil availability is the major factor that influences the value chain consisting of the manufacturers. The starting material base oil is obtained from the fractional distillation of crude oil. Several multinationals have a well-established, integrated value chain and are engaged in manufacturing raw materials as well as supplying engine oils as the finished products. These companies are integrated across multiple stages of the value chain in order to maintain a continuous supply of raw materials and ensure low manufacturing costs.

The fully-synthetic grade type is projected to play a crucial role in the further development of vehicle engines. Across the automotive industry, consumers demand smaller engine vehicles with great fuel efficiency and high performance. Vehicle manufacturers have started using turbochargers for engines, which leads to an increase in engine temperature. In such engines, synthetic oil performs smoothly even at high temperatures.
