Growing sales of consumer automotive, such as trucks, buses, and other forms of passenger transport, are expected to drive commercial automotive oil product demand. Economic growth in emerging markets, such as China, India, and Brazil, has led to betterment in public transportation in these regions. This trend is expected to further strengthen commercial automotive lubricant demand.
