Lubricant additives are organic or inorganic chemical compounds, which are either dissolved or suspended in order to improve the performance of lubricants and functional fluids. These compounds are utilized individually or formulated as a package according to end-use application. The demand for lubricant additive is major in heavy duty and passenger car segments, followed by metalworking fluids and industrial engine oils in the industrial application segment, owing to the lubricant consumption. The major additive types include dispersants, viscosity index improvers, detergents, anti-wear agents, antioxidants, corrosion inhibitors, friction modifiers and emulsifiers, among others. Increasing emergence of marine and aviation transportation, growing automotive industry and improved emission regulations in conjunction with fuel economy standards are driving the lubricant additives market growth.
