Germany Automotive Engine Oil Market Segment Analysis

Based on vehicle type, the Passenger vehicle segment holds the majority of share with a growing CAGR during the forecast years. Engine Oil is a high-performing additive technology that helps to prevent oil breakdown and the corrosion of engine parts resulting in a higher demand for Engine oil in Germany.


  • According to STELLAR analysis, 64 % of passenger Cars and motorcycles, 27% heavy duty trucks and buses, and 10 % light duty trucks.
  • The highest number of registered passenger cars was observed in Germany with almost 49 million cars.


Based on Grade, the Mineral Oil segment holds the majority of share and is expected to rise during the forecast period. Mineral oils are ideal for older vehicle models that were developed to run on less technologically advanced lubricants, a reason why they’re also a low-cost option for fleet managers and motorists. Mineral oils do flow through engine circuits slower than synthetic oils, which results in increased fuel consumption and impacted vehicle performance. Mineral oils provide high-quality lubrication, usually more so than synthetic lubricants resulting in higher demand for the German automotive engine oil market.
