Automotive Lubricants Market in Malaysia is driven by the Growth in Number of Passenger Vehicles on Road and the rapidly increasing demand for High Performing Lubricants Despite their premium pricing: Ken Research
Increase in income level generally in urban areas contributing towards increasing demand for Passenger Vehicles and a shift in preference to expensive synthetic and semi-synthetic lubricants have driven the market for Automotive Lubricants industry in recent years.
GURUGRAM, India, Dec. 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- A Significant growth has been observed in the number of passenger vehicles on road majorly due to the fact that people prefer travelling by their own vehicle instead of the public transport. On an average, a passenger car and a motorcycle in Malaysia travels ~2,300 km and ~1,800 km respectively on a monthly basis. Major regional hubs in the Malaysia are the Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Perak, Selangor and Johor as majority of vehicles are located in these regions.
Impact of Covid-19: Demand of Lubricants for Heavy duty diesel vehicles was not affected as the major construction and manufacturing activities were permitted during the lockdown, whereas the sales volume of lubricants for passenger vehicles witnessed a double digit decline due to the travel restrictions by the lockdown and work from home introduced by various companies. The average km travelled by a vehicle in the country also declined since the non-essential movement was not permitted in the country. Major companies faced the challenge of importing raw materials and finished products because of the trade restrictions caused by the Covid Pandemic.
Future Trends: Introduction of lubricants for electric vehicles would be a major trend for automotive lubricants market in Malaysia to cater the increasing number of EVs on road. Companies are being forced to change the formulations for their lubricants to cater the demand for the changing vehicle engine norms. Vehicle owners in Malaysia would be switching towards high performance lubricants despite their premium pricing. The automotive lubricants industry would also be supported by the Malaysian government's National Automotive Policy which tends to focus on strengthening the capabilities of the domestic automotive industry and creating a mechanism to promote investments to ramp up the domestic production which will result in the increased demand for automotive lubricants.
