Automotive and construction industries are expected to fuel such specialized lubricants demand. Heavy-duty vehicles are increasingly utilized for farming & building activities, in line with rising population levels across the globe. Growing spending on renovation and infrastructure are also conducive to industry growth.

Heavy-duty vehicles are expected to remain the dominant application with over 51% of the volume share in 2016. Heavy-duty vehicles such as tractors also require high-performance lubricants that deliver desired output for long-term agricultural activities. These require specialized manual transmission fluids (MTF), which are directly sourced to the gearbox and axles of heavy-duty vehicles.

Product Insights 

Asia Pacific is expected to grow the fastest, especially for dual clutch fluids, followed by North America. Several multinationals such as BMW, Honda, Ford, General Motors and others are manufacturing vehicles equipped with dual clutch technologies. Emission control is most important for the transmission box, and stringent CO2 emission regulations are expected to foster high growth in this segment.

Application Insights 

Heavy motor-works such as tractors, sprayers, harvesters and other such big machines require constant lubrication during field applications. These tractors operate in diverse weather conditions, under heavy-load conditions and thus require high performance lubricants to achieve optimum performance.
