Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Lubricants Market:

Many industries, such as the chemicals & materials industry, faced unprecedented challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The shortage of raw material and labor, the shutdown of factories, and other operational difficulties under COVID-19 safety protocols resulted in the contraction of packaging product sales during the initial months of the pandemic. Along with this, the lockdown impacted the transportation sector, resulting in the low movement of commercial and passenger vehicles across the globe. In China, according to the International Council on Clean Transportation, there was a 23% decrease in the sales volume of new passenger cars in 2020 as compared to the first half of 2019. All these factors negatively impacted the lubricants market during the COVID-19 pandemic. As the industries have started recovering, the demand for lubricants is likely to increase in the coming years. The recovering automotive, marine, chemical, and oil & gas industries will have a positive impact on the lubricants market.
