Shell Lubricants has been recognized as the global market leader for 11 consecutive years. This accolade was confirmed in the recently published Kline & Company’s 15th Edition Global Lubricants Industry: Market Analysis and Assessment: 2016-2026 report. The report covers the sector in 2016.

Shell held its global market leading position with an 11 percent market share, in terms of volume — selling more than 5 billion litres of finished lubricants. These sales were split almost evenly between sales to the consumer automotive, industrial and commercial automotive sectors.

The report found that Shell Lubricants is the market leader in three of the16 individual markets covered in the report: Malaysia, United Kingdom, and the United States. The company also ranks in the top three in 10 further markets.

“North America is critical to the overall global success of the Shell Lubricants business. The team in North America is proud to be the market leader in the prosperous, competitive landscape presented by the United States,” commented Colin Abraham, president of Shell Lubricants Americas.
