The industrial lubricants product segment dominated the overall market in 2012. Rising automotive sales are expected to fuel the demand for automotive lubricants over the forecast period.

The Asia-Pacific region dominated the global independent lubricant manufacturers market, accounting for more than 40 percent of the overall market share in 2012. It was followed by North America and Europe. A significant growth in automotive sales was witnessed particularly in the United States, which is expected to create new opportunities for U.S. independent lubricant manufacturers.
