Driveline Additives Market Report, published by Allied Market Research, forecast that the global market was valued at $4,296 million in 2016, and is estimated to reach $6,097 million by 2023, registering a CAGR of 5.2% from 2017 to 2023. In 2016, based on vehicle type, the passenger vehicles segment accounted for around two-thirds share of the total market.

Access Full Summary at:

Driveline additives is an umbrella term for additives used in automobiles to accomplish the lubrication requirements for manual transmission, automatic transmission, axles, and differentials. The additives used in the industry are dispersants, viscosity index improvers, detergents, anti-wear agents, antioxidants, corrosion inhibitors, friction modifiers, emulsifiers, and various others.

The global driveline additives market is driven by growth in vehicles production, rise in on-road and off-road vehicle parc, need for longer service drain intervals for transmission fluids and axle fluids, and rise in consumer inclination toward enhancing fuel efficiency of vehicles. Moreover, implementation of stringent emission norms globally and continuing requirement for hardware durability are expected to fuel the demand for driveline additives in the near future. However, factors, such as high cost of driveline additives as compared to conventional additives and fluctuating raw material prices are expected to hamper the market growth.

Driveline additives are used in transmission fluids to fulfil the transmission requirements to improve fuel economy and reduce emissions. Transmission fluid additive packages are used in automatic transmission fluids (ATFs), continuously variable transmission fluid (CVT), dual clutch transmission fluid, and manual transmission fluids to overcome problems, such as transmission shudder, poor shift feel, and accelerated wear that are common due to increasing oil drain intervals.
