Owing to increasing governmental interventions to achieve higher fuel economy along with the expanding automotive industry, the demand for lubricant additives is escalating across the globe.

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Lubricant Additives Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023”, the global lubricant additives market reached a value of US$ 15 Billion in 2017. Lubricant additives refer to chemicals that are designed and optimized to meet the performance requirements of engines. Over the years, a wide variety of hybrid compounds and blends have been engineered to create better additives which act as antioxidants and corrosion inhibitors in combustion engines as well as help in improving the viscosity of the oil and reducing oil decomposition. Many original equipment manufacturers (OEM), oil companies and lubricant additive manufacturers have collaborated to advance the fuel efficiency and durability of vehicles, and to reduce carbon emissions into the environment.

Market Trends:

Lubricant additives offer several advantages to the end-users, such as enhanced vehicle reliability, minimized costs, and reduced friction. Besides this, the development of advanced lubricant additives has helped in extending oil drain service intervals and improving engine durability while reducing CO2 emissions from cars and commercial vehicles. These lubricants also provide the vehicle manufacturers to meet warranty requirements such as protection of emission control systems as well as protect the owner's investment in the vehicle. Moreover, the governments of various nations have invested in R&D activities for developing superior products that adhere to environmental regulations. Apart from this, the use of environment-friendly and renewable fuels will influence the demand for lubricant additives. Looking forward, the market is projected to reach a value of US$ 18 Billion by 2023, expanding at a CAGR of 3% during 2018-2023.
