Key Highlights

Key Market Trends

Largest Segment By End User : Automotive

In 2020, the automotive industry dominated the South Korean lubricant market, followed by the industrial manufacturing industry. During 2015-2019, lubricant consumption in the automotive industry decreased by 4.34% due to the high penetration of synthetic lubricants with extended drain intervals.
In 2020, COVID-19-related restrictions led to declined maintenance requirements from several industries. The automotive industry observed the major impact, which recorded an 8.67% dip during the year, followed by heavy equipment (6.94%).
Power generation is likely to be the fastest-growing end-user industry of the South Korean lubricants market during 2021-2026, with a CAGR of 5.76%, followed by automotive (2.84%). The country’s increasing power generation capacity (especially renewable sources) will likely drive lubricant consumption in the power generation industry.
