Brazil Lubricants Market Overview

Brazil is the largest consumer of finished lubricants in South America apart from being the largest automotive market in the region. The sheer size of the country and its favorable geographical location & macro-economic factors has compelled almost all major multi-national companies to enter the market. The industry faced decline due to the economic crisis in the country till 2016 but it experienced slow recovery from 2017 onwards. The robust automotive sector in the country is one of the largest growth drivers of the industry. Continuous investment in research & development and marketing activities by the lubricant manufacturers is positively impacting the industry’s growth.

Brazil Lubricants Market Segmentations

By Origin of Lubricant: Mineral based lubricants dominated the lubricants industry in Brazil in 2019 on the basis of sales volume. The adoption of synthetic & semi-synthetic lubricants is currently led by new car sales as these are relatively expensive.

By Type of Lubricant: Out of the different types, automotive lubricants accounted for majority of the lubricants demand in the country on the basis of sales volume. The number of vehicles in circulation in the country reached ~46 mn units in 2019 and the new motor vehicles registered stood at ~2.7 mn units. The increasing industrial activity and economic recovery in the country also led to growth in demand for industrial lubricants.

Automotive Lubricant Market

By Type of Automotive Lubricant: Passenger Vehicle Motor Oil was analyzed to be the most consumed automotive lubricant in the country, followed by heavy duty diesel engine oil and others. Passenger cars were the leading vehicle type manufactured in the country in 2019. Due to larger distances covered by passenger vehicles & heavy-duty vehicles, they together captured majority share in the market.

By End-Users: On the basis of volume of lubricants demanded, commercial vehicles were observed to be the leading category among automotive lubricants, followed by passenger cars and motor cycles. The long distances travelled by trucks due to growing logistics & e-commerce sectors in the country have contributed to the relatively higher demand by the commercial vehicles.

By Distribution Channels: OEM workshops were analyzed to account for almost half of the sales volume of automotive lubricants in the country in 2019.  Brazil is home to many large OEMs that have partnerships with local & multi-national lubricant producers. Super markets & spare part shops including dealers and distributors were the second leading sales channel for automotive lubricants in 2019.

Industrial Lubricant Market

By Type of Industrial Lubricant: Hydraulic Oils were observed to account for majority of the demand for industrial lubricants in the country in 2019 due to consumption in all major sectors such as construction, power generation, manufacturing & more. Industrial Gear Oils & Transformer Oils were other major contributors to the sales volume in 2019.

By End-Users: Construction industry was observed to be the largest consumer of industrial lubricants in the country due to the large-scale infrastructure and construction projects going on in the country. Engineering equipment & manufacturing sectors were the other major contributors to the industry sales volume.

By Distribution Channels: Majority of the sales for the industrial lubricants took place directly from the company to the end-users. Due to the large volume of lubricants required by end-users, they prefer direct sales. Distributor-led sales accounted for the remaining sales volume in 2019.
