Also, vehicles manufactured using new technologies use single fluid for both gearbox and transmission. In terms of volume, transmission fluid segment is anticipated to amount to 6.92 mn tons by 2024.

Depending upon base oil, synthetic oil, mineral oil, and bio-based oil are the segments into which the automotive lubricants market is divided. Of them, mineral oil is the most attractive base oil segment in this market. In the years ahead too, mineral oil segment is anticipated to remain at the fore because of its high quantity and cheap price range, and the use of mineral oil in the manufacture of synthetic blends. Bio-based oil, on the other hand, is anticipated to hold a small share in the market as it is in developing stage.
