  • Description
  • Regional Coverage: Asia-Pacific, Europe, North America


    Use of synthetic lubricants continues to grow due to the increasingly stringent performance demanded by automotive OEMs and by regulation. Competitive pressures also drive the growth of these high performance lubricants. Increased consumption of synthetic lubricants in turn drives consumption of synthetic basestocks. Synthetic basestock suppliers have responded by increasing supply as well as improving the performance of their products. While all synthetic basestock categories will experience some growth, changing formulation requirements and substitution trends will favor some basestocks over others.
