We evaluate the technical competitiveness of Korea in lubricating oil industries by comparatively analyzing the patent activities. In achieving the goal, we collect and statistically analyze the historical patent data of lubricants production technologies. We here consider nine technology groups classified by their raw material types and process features of four countries such as USA, Japan, EU and Korea. We then evaluate Korea`s competitiveness in lubricating oil industries using different patent index including patent family size, cites per patent, patent impact index and technology strength. Based on the evaluation results, we finally propose the practical strategies to improve Korea`s competitiveness in lubricants industries.
