Lubricant Industry in the United States

The global lubricant industry has progressed form isolated applications to being a major industry worldwide which has seen the growth and progress of companies as ExxonMobil , Shell , BP & Chevron Texaco which now account for a significant market share of lubricants market. The lubricants business has grown manifold over the last five years backed by strong lubricant sales of these global majors.

The major strategy push of these global players is to capitalize on economies of scale whereby these players have pried open markets leading to value erosion in midsize players which are either reprocessing base oil from these global giants or depending on erratic domestic supply, these practices have led to their loss of competitive ability.

The market is increasingly moving toward polarization whereby competition has moved from local or regional markets to global synergies. Competition is therefore no longer limited to local, regional, or even national markets but is increasingly becoming global in nature.

US demand for lubricants is expected to reach 2.7 billion gallons in 2008. Past declines are likely to be reversed by mild advances in demand for process oils, general industrial oils, synthetics and other high-performance lubricants. The best markets will be in the production of machinery, printing inks, plastics and rubber, natural gas, and in mining and petroleum.
