In 2016,Russia’s lubricants marketshrank further by 1.8 percent year-on-year, and totaled 1.58 million tons. However, this loss was significantly milder than the 4.7-percent drop that occurred in 2015. According to RPI forecasts, the size of the market will continue to shrink at a slower pace. In coming years, the trend may be reversed as the market could grow potentially by 6.2 percent by 2020, and top 1.67 million tons.

The automotive transmission oil marketis characterized by similar trends. Last year, transmission oil sales in Russia totaled 69,000 tons, signifying a slight decrease over 2015. Meanwhile, RPI analysts forecast a turnaround in 2017, which could bring about the markets minimum growth. By 2025 it could grow approximately by 10 percent and reach 76,000 tons.

The size of transmission oil consumptionlargely correlates with the size of Russiaćs car fleet, which has considerably shrunk over the last two years as national economy falterd and the local populations purchasing power weakened. In 2016, new car sales in Russia dropped by 11 percent to 1.43 million units, but as early as this year they could bounce back by approximately 4 percent, eventually reaching 1.48 million.

One of the key tendenciesin Russias transmission oil market is the steady growth of the automatic transmission fluids (ATF) market share for automatic gearboxes, which in 2016 grew to 23 percent, while the share of transmission oil for mechanical gearboxes dropped to 77 percent. In the same year, the sales of cars with automatic gearboxes for the first time in history topped the sales of cars with mechanical gearboxes. In January-September 2016, their share totaled 51 percent of all cars sold.

Among general industry trends, we should single out growing requirements in regard to fuel economy, extension of transmission oil change intervals, which stimulates development of new products, primarily those for automatic gearboxes.

The above-mentioned aspects as well as other market trends and specifics require scrutiny and should be taken into account by both lubricant producers and distributors when making operational and strategic decisions.
