Highly competitive South African Lubricant Market Expected to receive Sustained Demand from Neighboring Countries: Ken Research
Upcoming on July 2016

Total demand for lubricants for lubricants in South Africa In 2014, total demand for finished lubricants in South Africa is estimated at 361 kilo tonnes. It has been witnessed that Industrial lubricants constitute the largest proportion of the demand for lubricants. Industrial lubricants have accounted for the largest share in total consumption during 2015. Demand for commercial and consumer automotive lubricants have also witness an upsurge in the last 3 years. 


Demand for industrial lubricants witnessed a slight fall in South Africa over the period 2013-2014 mainly due to labor unrest and electricity disruptions in the mining and manufacturing sectors. Lubricants for sectors such as commercial and consumer automotive witnessed stagnant growth. However, the South African lubricant manufacturers have been rarely affected by the slowdown in domestic demand, mainly due to exports of domestically-produced goods to the rest of Africa, particularly sub-Saharan Africa. South Africa is a hub that supplies to the rest of Africa. 5 Major Players in tier one petrochemical companies hold between 80 to 90% of the industrial lubricants market. These companies include Shell, Chevron, Engen, Total and Castrol.
