  • Description
  • Regional Coverage: Global


    The global passenger car motor oil (PCMO) market is on the cusp of significant change due to many emerging technologies. The growth in electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles has the potential to greatly reduce the consumption of PCMO. As ride-sharing becomes more wide-spread, reliable, and economical, future car owners may decide to forego car ownership. This will also have the impact of reducing PCMO consumption. Autonomous vehicles are still a long way from everyday use, but they could find use in select applications, thereby impacting PCMO consumption.

    This report helps subscribers to:

    • Understand the nature of these disruptive technologies, the drivers and road-blocks to their proliferation, and their impact on PCMO consumption and quality levels
