Mined, Made, Moved Reports

Castrol experts study qualified and globally consistent data to identify potential key trade influences today and in the future.

Castrol’s products and services continue to play a critical role in lubricating the global economy through what is being mined, made and moved around the world. Our Liquid Engineers have produced a wide-ranging study of economic and industrial power, past and present, across three dimensions: 
  • “Mined” tracks energy reserves and renewables’ production capacities geographically, and uses this data to identify possible future trends to help predict global powerhouses for energy production.
  • “Made” tracks global outputs, identifies current global hotspots for production of raw materials, semi-finished and finished goods and models some possible future trends.
  • “Moved” models global supply and demand of physical goods/materials and energy by analysing shipping and air trade volumes and values.
