Lubricant Additives

Lubricant Additives

US demand for lubricant additives is projected to increase 0.8% per year to 2.6 billion pounds in 2022. Growth in lubricant production, as well as the recent and upcoming introduction of lubricant performance specifications will boost demand for lubricant additives, in particular antioxidants, deposit control additives, and friction modifiers. However, the introduction and uptake of high performance lubricant additives that are used at lower treat rates will restrain gains in volume terms, although demand in value terms will benefit.

Lubricant additive product types covered in the study include:
Deposit control additives
Viscosity modifiers
Antiwear & extreme pressure additives
Friction modifiers
Antioxidants
Corrosion inhibitors
Emulsifiers
Other lubricant additives

Markets for lubricant additives include:
Automotive applications – engine oils and transmission and other automotive fluids
Industrial applications – metalworking fluids, industrial engine oil, and other industrial lubricants
