Shell retains its status as the leading global supplier of finished lubricants for a 15th consecutive year, according to the 19th edition of Kline & Company’s report Global Lubricants: Market Analysis and Assessment 2021.

Using 2020 as the base year, the report covers all leading lubricant consuming country markets, market segments, product types and formulations. Shell retains the number one ranking for all three lubricants categories tracked by Kline – consumer automotive, commercial automotive and industrial.

Machteld de Haan, who will take over as Executive Vice President for Shell Lubricants in January said, “This report confirms Shell as the leading global lubricant supplier across cars, trucks and industrial equipment for the fifteenth straight year, underscoring the business’s long-standing commitment to customers and reflecting the strength of our superior product portfolio. We have maintained our market-leading position and extended our competitive advantage thanks to our scale, brand equity, technological leadership and customer relationships, all under the exceptional leadership of Carlos Maurer, our outgoing EVP.”

Earlier this year, Shell launched the largest carbon-neutral program in the lubricants industry, enabling customers in key markets worldwide to choose carbon-neutral lubricants across select brands.
