There is a positive outlook for lubricant growth despite recent setbacks – but what will be the long term impact of India’s electrification plans?

Signs are that India is rebounding after the temporary blip caused by demonetization and the introduction of GST. Commercial vehicle sales have recently performed especially well, showing 25% growth in September 2017 over the same month in 2016. Often seen as an indicator of economic growth, this indicates a healthy forecast for the Indian economy.
Overall vehicle sales across all categories – passenger vehicles, commercial vehicles and two wheelers – rose 10% over the same period. Rising vehicle sales are good news for the base oils and lubricants industry!

Yet the Indian Government is conscious of the environmental impact of this trend, and is introducing significant fuel economy and emission norms, as well as a stated intention to move the country to selling only electric cars by 2030. 

What will all these developments mean for the future of base oils and lubricants in India?

Gain essential market intelligence and join the discussion by attending the 2018 ICIS conference in Mumbai, the only meeting focussing on market and commercial issues in India.

The conference offers unparalleled networking opportunities as it brings the international and domestic industries together at an exciting and crucial time.
