Demand estimates are also provided for Group IV and Group V basestocks for completeness. Key Benefits Subscribers to the study will receive an in-depth understanding of the current status the basestocks industry in terms of basestock supply, basestock application space and demand, lubricant formulation trends, basestock pricing mechanism, inter-region trade, inter-material competition, and manufacturing costs. Subscribers to the study receive supply demand models for each trade region. These models are an invaluable tool for conducting “what-if” analysis based on different assumptions of lubricant formulation approach, current viscosity grades and quality levels used, viscosity grade and quality level shifts, and overall lubricant growth. The study is a useful tool for sales, marketing, finance, technology and strategy personnel to quickly learn the fundamentals of the basestock business, understand lubricant basestock requirements of the leading end-use markets, and make business decisions. www.KlineGroup.com Report #Y618F | © 2012 Kline & Company, Inc.

Global Lubricant Basestocks:Market Analysis and Opportunities Methodology As the leading global consultancy covering lubricants and functional fluids, Kline & Company has developed an analysis approach based heavily on primary research (in-person and telephone interviews). This approach has a proven track record as the most effective and reliable in analyzing the lubricant basestocks and finished lubricant and additives businesses, as well as in identifying business opportunities and threats.

Finished lubricant demand numbers are a result of primary research carried out in different country markets. "Market average" blend recipe sets for different regions will be developed on basis of interviews with a wide range of industry experts: formulators, additive suppliers, and basestock marketers. The "market average" blend recipes so developed is tested with a number of market participants and their feedback is incorporated where relevant.
