Global Automotive Engine Oil Market Overview

Automotive engine oil refers to the lubricant which is         used to oil the internal parts of an internal combustion engine. Automotive engine oil is made up of organic compounds, hydrocarbons and polyinternal olefins.  These oils are enriched with certain additives such as engine stability additives and extreme pressure additives which boosts the performance of the engine. Automotive engine oil is used to prevent the engine seizure as engine oils reduce the wear on the moving parts such as piston and crankshaft and removes heat generated from engine.  The market share of automotive engine oils has continuously been rising due to the increased usage and demand for automobiles. Apart from preventing engine failure, the automotive engine oil performs various other functions such as reducing engine noise, reducing friction and dissipation of heat from the engine. The continuous use of automotive engine oil increases the life of an automotive engine.

Automotive engine oil has several properties such as high boiling point and low freezing point. This helps the automotive engine oil to stay in its liquid state while operating at different range of temperatures. Further, these oils do have a property of corrosive prevention which prevents the internal parts of engine from getting corroded. Further, automotive engine oils takes away suspended particles to the oil filter and helps to increase the efficiency of the engine. Moreover, the increasing trend of owning a vehicle provides a major opportunity of the growth for the automotive engine oil market.
