Management is committed to brand building, expanding the distribution network, and launching new products, which are expected to boost volume and market share. Castrol India remains optimistic about the Indian market, predicting strong lubricant demand until the late 2030s and early 2040s due to low car penetration in the country. Although electric vehicles (EVs) pose a potential threat, their adoption is expected to be gradual.
