    DESCRIPTION

    The global industrial manufacturing sector continues to improve from the low production rates during the recession. However, the emerging scenario is vastly different from the pre-recession one. Firstly, off-shoring of manufacturing to low cost Asian markets is no longer attractive due to reducing cost competitiveness of Asian manufacturers. In fact, China is expected to achieve cost parity with the United States in the next few years due to rising wages and strengthening currency. Secondly, manufacturers in Asia are keen to improve and modernize their manufacturing process to better compete with their western counterparts. Thirdly, all manufacturers are increasingly focused on improving energy efficiency, reducing emissions, and becoming more sustainable. All three factors will profoundly influence the volume and quality of industrial lubricants consumed.
