Publisher’s Note: Lubricants Industry Factbook
Editors at Lube Report’s sister publication, Lubes’n’Greases magazine, have just put the finishing touches on our yearly “Lubricants Industry Factbook.” The 2017-2018 edition of this valuable guide is packed with eye-opening information about lubricant industry trends, statistics and standards.
Wonder where U.S. base oil exports are flowing? See page 25. Need to figure out the market share of synthetic lubricants? You’ll find it on page 36. Whether you’re trying to license an engine oil (page 18), learn the basics of additive chemistry (page 40), or get a look at lubricant sales by product (page 6) -- this 44-page book holds the answers.
Our brilliant editors and graphic designers have assembled this information and much more into a manual that you’ll want to keep on your desk all year. Unlike most reference works, the Factbook is copiously illustrated throughout with striking, colorful graphics to deliver quick comprehension and visual impact.
Copies of the new Factbook were mailed this week to all Lubes’n’Greases print subscribers, along with their August issue. Additional copies were mailed to each of the magazine’s digital-only subscribers. (If that’s you, watch your mail for it.)
Finally, the 2017-2018 Lubricants Industry Factbook is now available to purchase online as a secure, digital PDF download. It’s ideal for saving on your laptop or computer desktop so it’s always at your fingertips. You can also buy additional copies for your employees, shareholders and customers.
