    Lubricant quality continues to improve driven by regulations for fuel economy and emissions control. This is reflected in the introduction of new quality specifications for passenger car and heavy duty motor oils and the move to lighter viscosity grades. At the same time, lubricant basestock quality continues to improve rapidly and new suppliers enter the market providing new options to lubricant blenders. Both of these factors create new business and growth opportunities and challenges for the lubricant additive industry in an otherwise flat market.
