A Significant growth has been observed in the number of passenger vehicles on road majorly due to the fact that people prefer travelling by their own vehicle instead of the public transport. On an average, a passenger car and a motorcycle in Malaysia travels ~2,300 km and ~1,800 km respectively on a monthly basis. Major regional hubs in the Malaysia are the Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Perak, Selangor and Johor as majority of vehicles are located in these regions.

Impact of Covid-19: Demand of Lubricants for Heavy duty diesel vehicles was not affected as the major construction and manufacturing activities were permitted during the lockdown, whereas the sales volume of lubricants for passenger vehicles witnessed a double digit decline due to the travel restrictions by the lockdown and work from home introduced by various companies. The average km travelled by a vehicle in the country also declined since the non-essential movement was not permitted in the country. Major companies faced the challenge of importing raw materials and finished products because of the trade restrictions caused by the Covid Pandemic.
