Lubricating oil additives are organic or inorganic substances that are dissolved or suspended in the lubricating oil in solid form to give them specific properties according to the type, application and lubricant requirements. These additives help improve existing properties and remove unwanted properties of base oils, in addition to providing them special properties. Materials that help improve the properties of existing base oils include defoamers, corrosion inhibitors, and antioxidants, and help suppress unwanted base oil properties. The materials include pour point depressants and viscosity index enhancers. In addition, detergents, extreme pressure additives and emulsifiers impart new characteristics to the base oil.

Market Scope and Structure Analysis

Lubricating oil additives are being used on a large scale in automotive industry along with many other sectors and it is expected to drive the lubricating oil additives market’s significant growth in the next upcoming years.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

  • At the beginning of 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic began to spread around the world. Millions of people worldwide are infected with the COVID-19 disease. The major economies in the world have issued permanent bans and orders to stop operations. Most life support industries have been hit hard, and the lubricating oil additives industry has also been hit hard.
  • Due to the lockdown in major parts of the world, the manufacturing unit faced lack of manpower for production work.
  • As being a key product for automotive industry and high demand of automobiles after the lockdown was removed from various region of the globe, a high demand will be in the market of lubricating oil additives.

Top Impacting Factors 

  • The rapid urbanization process and increasing consumer demand for products are driving the expansion of industrial production bases, thereby driving the demand for lubricant oil additives.
  • Different formulations of additives depend on different chemicals, and prices vary from supplier to supplier. Due to the increase in raw material costs, transportation and regulatory policies require price adjustments, it is assumed that raw material prices fluctuate frequently which is one of the limiting factors in the lubricant additive market.
  • Being a superior type of material, which make a high R&D cost for the lubricating oil additives and availability of low-cost alternatives is the one of the restraints that the market faces.
  • Applications range from long life, high and low temperature, outdoor to marine environments, and applications that may accidentally meet food and these applications require very low toxic lubricant. Expanding the use of lubricating oil additives in accordance with OEM specifications to improve fuel economy and reduce viscosity will increase the growth of Lubricating oil additives market with a significant rate.

Market Trends

  • In April 2019, Specialty chemical compounds corporation LANXESS is launching a natural lubricant additive for passenger automobile and high-overall performance engine oils. The new RC 3502 has been especially evolved to lessen friction and supply sustained overall performance and anti-put on protection. The friction modifier is non-corrosive, well matched with all artificial and mineral engine oils and has no SAPS. 
  • In May 2019, Specialty chemical compounds agency LANXESS has taken a brand new look at bench for additivities hydraulic fluids into operation at its Mannheim site. It is getting used to check the additive bundle Additin RC 9200 N, in addition to different fluids. These high-overall performance components are used to formulate hydraulic fluids which might be applied in big industrial cars together with excavators, integrate harvesters, or production cars.
