Redefine Success with the Complex Line of Mobil Oils


Discover the rapidly growing market for synthetic motor oils. 

The time is right, and consumers are ready for high-performance premium motor oils engineered by ExxonMobil. 

Synthetics are the future. 

Synthetic motor oils represent nearly 20 percent of the market – and that percentage is growing rapidly. 

  • Synthetic use will grow by more than 10 percent annually over the next six years. 
  • More and more customers are using synthetics for the first time. 
The takeaway:

Carry the world's leading synthetic motor oil brand and capitalize on this emerging opportunity. 

Where is the market heading?

OEMs. Driven by the need to meet government fuel-efficiency standards, as well as by new engine designs and features (e.g., turbochargers) that put engine oils under more punishing conditions, OEMs are switching to lower-viscosity oils, which require synthetics. That's why today about one in four cars requires a synthetic oil change.

We're also in the midst of a major viscosity transition. As of 2020,  0W-20, 5W-20, and 5W-30 each represent 25 percent of the market. That means you need to carry significant inventory in all three. The rest of the market will be older viscosities such as 10W-40 and others like Toyota's 0W-16. 

Fourteen of the 20 best-selling US cars are now factory-filled with synthetic motor oils. 

Consumers. Today, people are driving less, keeping their cars longer, and extending their drain intervals. More and more consumers are also opting to go to an installer rather than change their own oil–partly due to changing demographics, but also because complex engine technology is making it harder for the DIYer. 

What does this mean for you?

  • Projected industry growth is less than 1 percent for the next several years. Look for growth opportunities by upselling premium and synthetic products while reducing cost to serve. 
  • Synthetic motor oil is the biggest opportunity, with 10 percent annual growth expected over the next several years.
  • Offer training and incentives to service writers to benefit from premium product offers like high-mileage and synthetic formulations. 
  • To avoid the potential high costs of carrying multiple SKUs, good inventory management is critical.
