  2. 2. LubesNet Database Database Features LubesNet Database 2012 is available online through an annual subscription. The base year for the 2013 version is 2012 and includes FutureView forecasts to 2016 and 2021. LubesNet captures finished lubricant consumption in every important lubricant-consuming country market. Data is segmented according to five core regions, plus a global summary. Each regional segment provides a detailed breakdown of finished lubricant consumption in each important country market within the region, plus an "all other" category. Asia-Pacific: Australia, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Pakistan, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam, Sri Lanka (new), Mynamar (new) and all other North America: Canada, Mexico, and the United States Europe: Benelux, France, Germany, Iberia, Italy, Poland, Turkey, the United Kingdom, Russia, Ukraine (new), Serbia (new), Croatia (new), Belarus (new), and all other South Central America: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Guatemala, Honduras, Peru, Venezuela, Costa Rica (new), Panama (new), Trinidad & Tobago (new), Jamaica (new), Dominican Republic (new), Ecuador (new) and all other. Africa/Middle East: Egypt, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, the United Arab Emirates, and all other Central Asia: Kazakstan (new) Global LubesNet includes insight down to the viscosity grade level, as shown in the sample below. For each region, the major lubricant consuming country markets are displayed with a level of detail and granularity not found in other database offerings. Since its inception in January 2007, the content and functionality of LubesNet has improved based on suggestions and recommendations from its many global users such as: New Trend View combines historical, base year, and FutureView in one table to view demand changes over time 13 new countries added Eight years of historical demand data Choose to view all country markets or one or more individual country markets in either the base year, historical, or FutureView Demand data available in four units of measure: kilotonnes (KT), million gallons (MG), million liters (ML), and thousand barrels (KB) GDP data and other relevant market indicators Klines underlying assumptions in the FutureView for country market lubricant growth/decline Unlimited access to the Kline project team for inquiries and demonstrations from HQ and individual LubesNet users Estimated European Lubricant Demand Report #Y634F | © 2012 Kline & Company, Inc.
  3. 3. LubesNet Database Functionality and Benefits LubesNet is easy to use and accessible from anywhere in the world through a single user identification code and password. A subscription includes enterprise-wide access by anyone in your organization and from any enterprise location where finished lubricant demand data is needed. LubesNet is an excellent tool to empower sales, marketing, and management personnel to utilize the most up-to- date finished lubricant demand data in their areas of responsibility and specific geographies. For example, a product manager in China can easily access LubesNet to understand the historical, current, and future demand for a specific viscosity grade of PCMO to more effectively customize a product offering to local demand. Understanding the shift to lower viscosity consumer engine oils in India and the increasing penetration of synthetics can be an effective tool in supply chain and marketing initiatives. LubesNet features the FutureView forecasting tool, allowing users to easily change variables to run various "what if" demand scenarios. For example, if the recovery from recession in China is stronger than expected and the lubricant market grows by 6% instead of 4%, what will be the impact on demand? Or if viscosity grades do not change at the suggested rate, or if performance changes do not occur, what might the resultant demand look like?
