The PCMO Market in 2040: A Long-term Outlook

The PCMO Market in 2040: A Long-term Outlook

Base Year: 2017
Published April 2018
Forecasts to 2040
Regional Coverage: Global

The global passenger car motor oil (PCMO) market is on the cusp of significant change due to many emerging technologies. The growth in electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles has the potential to greatly reduce the consumption of PCMO. As ride-sharing becomes more wide-spread, reliable, and economical, future car owners may decide to forego car ownership. This will also have the impact of reducing PCMO consumption. Autonomous vehicles are still a long way from everyday use, but they could find use in select applications, thereby impacting PCMO consumption.

This report helps subscribers to:

  • Understand the nature of these disruptive technologies, the drivers and road-blocks to their proliferation, and their impact on PCMO consumption and quality levels
  • Understand the state of development for the leading country markets and the scope for penetration of these new technologies
  • Evaluate the emerging market opportunities and challenges
  • Assess the impact on the global PCMO market in terms of future demand at an overall level and by quality levels, viscosity grades, and penetration of synthetics
  • Assess the impact on the PCMO market supply chain, shifts in customer base, and the emergence of new customer groups
