which has to be taken in account when switching to a low-sulfur diesel. Sulfur impurities in fuels also provide some lubrication properties. fluorocarbons and many others are sometimes used as base oils. there are increased refinement and performance in engine and other parts.

Caltex. The decanalisation of the lube base oil imports in 1993 by the Govt. of India followed by reduction of import duty on lube base oils from 85% to 30% and gradual scrapping of administered pricing observed the announcement of almost a new lube venture every month during 1994. Prior to 1992 the lube industry in India was controlled by the 4 major Public Sector Oil companies namely Indian Oil.5 million tones.5.

This has been followed by sudden entry of lot many players. MARKETING CHANNEL The marketing channels for automotive lubricants in India consist of the following. • • • • • • • • Petrol Stations Wholesale Distributors Lube Oil Shops Auto Spare Shops Authorised Service Stations Garages Rural & Agricultural dealers Super Markets . During these phases marketing channels of distribution had drifted from petrol stations to bazaar trade. The Government policy of deregulation followed by entry of multinationals through JVCs had its effect on the market dominance of PSUs. All these new entrants are targeting for a very small share of the market considering that even 1% market share means a sale of Rs. The Indian Oil controlled 54% of the lube market out of total PSU's market share of more than 90% during 91-92.

MARKET SIZE Total production of automotive lubricants in India is approximately 8 to 10 percent of global lube production.In the developed World. the resultant drift towards the bazaar trade i. MNC’s have 5 percent market share and the remaining share is held by the unorganized sector. With the advent of deregulated market scenario & fierce competition. the Indian market has been growing at approximately 7 percent per annum for the past 2 years. The sales of automotive lubricants through bazaar trade increased from a mere 10% prior to 1993 to a handsome present level of 40% compared to Worldwide Trend of more than 70%. Market became heavily crowded & the industry got transformed into FMCG. In India. Unlike other countries where lubricant demand has witnessed stagnation. because of high degree of customer sensitivity & awareness. outside the petrol stations. Hence.. War of trade discounts resulting in rice war & lesser margins for de Entry of spurious lubricants.Till recently. efforts are being made to position lubricant as a high involvement consumer goods. this job is still left to the mechanics & service stations. the Indian consumers linked filling of lubricants to that of petrol & diesel in petrol stations. D0-it-Yourself (DIY) concept has evolved for filling of engine oil.e. People buy from super markets & fill it themselves. Dumping of products in the bazaar. Automotive lubricants are .During these years this shift in trade had the following effects: • • • • • Decline in Market Share of PSU oil companies. The public sector contributes to over 60 percent of the revenues for this market.

Kinetic Engineering. transmission fluids. Diesel lubes comprise 70 percent of the market and petrol based lubricants cover the rest. hydraulic brake fluids. MARKET SHARE IN INDIA 1.SKODA etc. their market share is higher. the Japanese vehicle. and engine coolants contribute to the balance.

Private participants will also gain a presence in the Indian oil and gas sector and hence there will be competition between participants that will ensure the growth of the sector. the government decided to open the Indian market to foreign competition. Basic custom duty on base oil stock was also reduced from a peak of 85 percent to a level of 25 percent. which made it more difficult for the Indian lube manufacturers to survive.COMPETITIVE ANALYSIS The first seeds of competition were sown in the early 1990’s when following the liberalization of the Indian economy. Pricing of base oil was deregulated in a phased manner and currently it is market determined. These developments naturally encouraged the entry of foreign players on Indian shores who were already facing a slowdown in demand in their local markets. Import of base oil. With the dismantling of Administered Price Mechanism (APM) the burden of subsidies is now being passed on to the government. In the next c . All quantitative restrictions were also removed. Recent deregulations in the lubricant market have promised many new opportunities for the private lube manufacturers. was decanalized with IOC losing its status as the sole canalizing agent. The coming in of foreign participants created an excess supply situation in the Indian automotive lubes market. the key raw material.

OUTLOOK In the future. in the future volume growth will be affected because of use of better quality. long drain lubes. growth in the automotive lubricants industry will largely depend on the overall performance of the economy. Given the rising competition. which has the potential to change the face of the lubricant industry. However. This will increase the replacement cycle for lubes. success of a product would largely depend how well it is branded and distributed INDIAN LUBRICANT MARKET INDIAN OIL CORPORATION . the scenario has improved with higher sales of commercial vehicles and two-wheelers. In the past one and a half years. In the shorter term. one will witness intense competition in a slow growing market marked by a consolidation activity.
