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 and fuel economy regulations and original equipment manufacturers' (OEM) specification 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, optimize their cost, explore new market positioning strategies using the basestocks available.
