This Future Market Insights report examines the global driveline additives market for the period 2015-2025. The primary objective of the report is to offer updates on the advancements in additives manufacturing with respect to the changing OEM demands giving rise to high quality automobile additives: the driveline additives, which is significantly improving the fuel efficiency in automobiles.
Transmission fluid additives and gear oil additives consist of depressants, dispersants, extreme pressure agents, anti-wear additives, friction modifiers, viscosity index modifiers, pour point lubricants, and foam inhibitors, etc. Detergents are cleaning agents that adhere to dirt particles and prevent them from sticking to metal surface. Dispersants help in preventing the formation of varnish, sludge and various deposits on critical metal surfaces. Extreme pressure additives react with metal surfaces at high temperatures throughout the operation, creating a coating that can withstand extreme pressure and heat. This coating protects two metal surfaces in contact from scouring. Anti-wear additives perform in a similar manner as extreme pressure additives, but operate under lower pressures and loads.
