Opportunities in Lubricants: Middle East Market

October, 2020

The Middle East region produces almost one-third of global crude oil, with more than 30 million barrels coming from the region per day. Crude oil prices, which plunged from 2014-16 and recently hit lows not seen since the 1998 oil crisis over 20 years ago, have had a significant impact on the region’s economies. Local governments have already implemented diversification plans following the 2014-16 oil crisis and have started to open up their economies to more foreign direct investment (FDI), set up free trade zones and districts, and encourage their manufacturing sectors to grow. However, the COVID-19 pandemic caused shutdowns across the region with businesses, schools, and travel being suspended. This unexpected slowdown also halted major events such as the World Cup and new offshore drilling with global partners. While recent events and ongoing socio-political troubles have slowed the region’s growth, it continues to play an important part in global trade, as well as in the finished lubricants market.

September, 2020

The global general industrial oils (GIOs) and grease market was growing slowly at a 0.2% CAGR from 2014 to 2019. Kline’s most–likely COVID-19 scenario estimates the 2020 overall decline in GIOs and greases to be around 13%.  However, a strong recovery with a CAGR of 2.7% is expected between 2020 and 2024. While North America is projected to see the greater rate of decline, developing markets such as Africa and the Middle East are estimated to grow quickly once they begin to recover from the COVID-19 shutdowns.
