Lubricant Additives Market to be worth US$ 18.1 Billion by 2032 , Get Insights FMI

Lubricant Additives Market

The global lubricant additives market stands at US$ 13 Billion as of now and is expected to reach US$ 18.1 Billion by the year 2032 at a CAGR of 3.3% between 2022 and 2032.

Additives are known for playing a vital role in blending base oils to get formulations for improving their performance on the whole. Additives’ selection hugely depends on end-uses of lubricants, which include hydraulic systems, automotive engines, bearings, and gears. The upcoming economies are into development of aftermarkets in the form of domestic blenders.

Viscosity improvers and dispersants collectively hold more than 40% of the overall market. Dispersants come into picture when prevention of varnish or sledge or any other formation of deposit on surfaces is imperative. Gasoline and diesel engine oils are the major application areas. Viscosity index improvers have polymeric nature and, as the name suggests, work in conjunction with lubricating oils for reducing degree of the viscosity change at high and low temperatures. Also, passenger car motor oil dominates 30% of the overall market and the scenario is expected to remain the same even in the near future. This could be reasoned with Euro Norms, which call for regulating quantity of carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxide, hydrocarbons, and soot. Future Market Insights has walked through these findings with future perspectives in its latest market study entitled ‘Lubricant Additives Market’.
