Full Report Now Available: The Impact of Electric Vehicles (EVs) on the Global Lubricants Market

The consumer vehicle market is changing, and battery electric vehicles are penetrating the marketplace even faster than predicted. The growth is expected to have a negative volumetric impact on the lubricants industry, displacing demand for traditional automotive oils, greases and fluids that go into the vehicle, as well as metalworking fluids and other lubricants used to make engines and other parts.

To get a handle on this trend and its impact on members, ILMA commissioned a study from Kline & Co. that quantifies the potential outcomes of increasing electrification. The results were presented during two #LubeTrends virtual town halls at the end of 2022.

Watch the town hall recordings and view the full report.
