The Castrol Global Trade Barometer


Castrol lubricants are in everything that is 'Mined, Made and Moved'. Our global reach in the automotive manufacturing, marine, natural products, aerospace and industrial sectors means that we have a unique view of world trade. 

The Castrol Global Trade Barometer (CGTB) can help you assess potential growth opportunities across key sectors and markets by highlighting underlying growth trends and the key drivers of trade.
This is the second economic study in the series, and finds that regional supply chains are increasingly important to global trade, despite the slow pace of growth for trade more generally since 2011. Both strong performing and fast growing nations are benefitting from their geographic position. Many are ‘Placed to Win’ and looking to capitalise on this natural advantage by positioning themselves as key trade hubs, in increasing competition with their neighbours.
