GS Caltex sees much promise in China’s lubricants market

GS Caltex said yesterday it aims to tap into one of the world’s fastest-growing markets for lubricant products as it sees opportunities growing in China.

Last month, the company launched a brand called Dongfeng GS Lubricants, developed jointly with Dongfeng Motor Lubricant, a unit of Chinese carmaker Dongfeng Motor.

“China currently trails the United States as the world’s second-largest consumer of lubricants, but it is expected to become the world leader, boosted by its growing automobile industry,” said Kim Eung-sik, head of the company’s lubricants business.

Car lubricants account for 64 percent of the Chinese market, while industrial lubricants make up the rest.
