Shell named top global lubricants supplier for 13th year in a row

Kline & Company’s 17th Edition Global Lubricants Industry: Market Analysis and Assessment: 2019 report has named Shell as the number one global lubricants supplier for the 13th consecutive year.

Shell was the first to market cleaner, purer lubricants made from natural gas. As the customer needs evolve, Shell is continuing to innovate and has launched Shell E-Fluids that are specifically designed for the growing electric vehicle market.

Earlier this year, Shell also revealed MachineMax, which is a new digital service for industrial customers that helps optimise the operation of machinery.

The lubricants specialist also has a range of digital services that include Shell LubeMatch and Shell LubeChat to help the customers find the right oil for their vehicle.

Shell is the innovation partner to Scuderia Ferrari, technical partner to Ducati Corse in MotoGP and BMW in Motorsport, as well as the co-title sponsor to the Hyundai Shell Mobis World Rally Team. Shell also partnered with Nissan in Formula E earlier this year.

Huibert Vigeveno, executive vice president, Shell Global Commercial commented: “Shell’s growth strategy for lubricants is working. Our balanced portfolio of market leading products and growing digital services are enabling us to build business across all market segments and demonstrate the resiliency of our business in an increasingly dynamic global lubricants market.

“The Kline report shows that we are widening our lead over our main competitors and I am particularly pleased with the growing demand for our premium lubricants and our growth in the industrials segment. We have been focusing on what our customers need and adapting our offer accordingly, which is resulting in material earnings growth and contributing resilient free cash flow to the Shell Group.”
