Global Grease Additives Market 2016-2020

About Grease Additives

Additives are used in greases because of the special properties that they impart to the base fluids and thickeners. Some of these properties are the protection of greased surfaces from oxidation, corrosion, wear and tear, and extreme pressure. Greases are mainly classified according to the grades established by the National Lubricating Grease Institute (NLGI).

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global grease additives to grow at a CAGR of 2.11% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Grease Additives Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global grease additives: Afton Chemical, BASF, Clariant, Lubrizol, and Innospec.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “High-performing biodegradable greases will gain traction in this market. Conventional mineral oil-based greases are found to release harmful residues on partial combustion and high friction. Also, due to their poor degradability, they remain in the ecosystem for a long time. Eventually, they are found to interact with other chemical pollutants to result in smog and other toxic substances. There has been increasing R&D expenditure on this front to eliminate the emission of harmful grease residues. Various research institutions in co-ordination with multinationals are working on the development of biodegradable greases.”

According to the report, evolution of new equipment design will drive the market of global grease additives. Gearboxes and joints in automobiles and machineries are becoming smaller in size with the passage of time. This clearly indicates that the volumes of greases required are decreasing. However, these machineries now need to be operated at higher temperatures and higher speeds than before. As a result, the demand for high-quality greases and grease additives are increasing, driving the global grease additives market.

Further, the report states that one major challenge for vendors in the global grease additives market is the constant need for R&D and technological upgrades. There are two reasons for the need continuous upgrades. First, performance and emission standards for fuels and greases across the world are usually set by regulatory bodies, and all manufacturing industries must adhere to these standards. Second, rapid technological advancements in the manufacture of machinery and automobiles are creating the demand for environment-friendly and high-performance greases and grease additives.
