Automobiles sales have increased, and the market is expanding to distant corners. Growing exploration activities and investment in research development sector can inspire the market. But dwindling crude oil prices can be a deterrent for the global market.
The global market for lubricant additives has been discussed by MRFR in a report where they have studied various details of the market. The process included segmentation of the market into function, type, and end-use industry.
By function, the global market for lubricant additives can be founded on antioxidants, dispersants, viscosity index improvers, rust corrosion inhibitors, extreme pressure additives, anti-wear agents, anti-foaming agents, pour point depressants, detergents, demulsifiers, friction modifiers, tackifiers, emulsifiers, and others.
By type, when considered for a study, the global market included transmission fluids, engine oils, hydraulic fluids, gear oils, steering fluids, absorber fluids, grease, turbine oils, metalworking fluids, and others.
By end-use industry, the market includes various industries like energy, construction, automotive, aerospace defense, food processing, marine, metallurgy metalworking, and others. These segments can transform the lubricant additives market considerably.
North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific (APAC) can witness substantial growth in the region-specific understanding of the lubricant additives market. The Middle East Africa (MEA) market has the potential to score well as various fossil fuel sectors are from this region only.
The APAC market scored the highest in 2018 by collecting the highest market share among its peers. This would include various industries like construction, automotive, aerospace defense, and energy who are enjoying growing investment in respective markets. Industrialization and urbanization have a significant role to play in deciding the future market movement for the regional market.
Europe and North America are expected to score substantially well as a lot of companies are from these two regions. High consumption of automotive, growing defense sector and aerospace industries in various countries are expected to take these regional markets ahead. Both these regions also display a strong industrial base, which can influence the intake of lubricant additives.
Brazil and Chile are undergoing various industrial changes owing to which these country-specific markets can expect strong traction from the product. At the same time, the consumption rate is growing, which can inspire the regional market. The presence of various manufacturing units in GCC, UAE, and Saudi Arabia can influence the market for lubricant additives in the Middle East Africa.
The market for global lubricant additives brand is riddled with companies who are expecting strong thrust from various sectors. Using this they are planning their strategies, which if implemented well can solidify their market position and influence a global change in demography. MRFR profiled a few companies to understand which way the pendulum for the future market would swing. These companies are LANXESS (US), BASF SE (Germany), Afton Chemical (US), Evonik AG (Germany), Chevron Corporation (US), BRB International (Netherlands), Infineum International Limited (UK), Croda International PLC (UK), DOVER CHEMICAL CORPORATION (US), SHEPHERD CHEMICAL COMPANY (US), The Lubrizol Corporation (UK), Tianhe Chemicals (China), JINZHOU KANGTAI LUBRICANT ADDITIVES CO. LTD (China), DOG Chemie (Germany), Wuxi South Petroleum Additives Co. Ltd (China), and others.
In September 2021, researchers at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory displayed the function of a certain type of ionic liquids (ILs). The product’s performance relies on the correct blending of it with the commercially available oils that can improve gear function, which would make the gear into a less noisy and increase its durability.
