The global basestock industry is witnessing sea changes. The rapid new supply creation has consistently outpaced demand growth leading to a flood of new basestocks supply in the market. This has put pressure on the existing high cost plants to shut down. The Group I capacity reduction will constrain the availability of heavy neutrals and brightstocks. On the other hand, the tightening emission norms and original equipment manufacturers' (OEM) push is driving use of high quality and synthetic lubricants. The next five-year period is interesting as basestocks suppliers strive to place their surplus production, and blenders explore alternatives to make up for the shortfall in certain grades of basestocks.

As the leading global consultancy covering lubricants and functional fluids, Kline & Company has developed an analysis approach based heavily on primary research (in-person and telephone interviews). This approach has a proven track record as the most effective and reliable in analyzing the lubricant basestocks and finished lubricant and additives businesses, as well as in identifying business opportunities and threats.
Basestock supply information is developed based on interviews with all basestock refiners located in North America, South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Africa, and the Middle East regions. Finished lubricant demand numbers are a result of primary research carried out in different country markets. "Market average" blend recipe sets for different regions will be developed on basis of interviews with a wide range of industry experts: formulators, additive suppliers, and basestock marketers. The "market average" blend recipes so developed is tested with a number of market participants and their feedback is incorporated where relevant.
