Global Friction Modifier Additives Market: Dynamics   

The global Friction Modifier Additives Market is estimated to be driven by rising Organic friction modifier (OFMs) additives as they are mostly preferred for the lubrication of automotive engines. OFMs and zinc dialkyldithiophosphates (ZDDPs) anti wear additives react competitively on rubbing ferrous substrates in a tribological contact. By carefully understanding the chemistry of OFMs, formulators of additives can achieve application specific lubricants that form ZDDP anti wear films of optimum thickness and friction, thereby delivering end users required optimised lubricity, durability and environmental acceptability of the formulation, thereby paving the way of growth of the Friction Modifier Additives Market.

Global Friction Modifier Additives Market: Forecast

On the basis of inorganic segment, the MoDTC segment is anticipated to play a crucial role in building market revenue. The MoDTC segment is estimated to lead the overall Friction Modifier Additives Market accounting for an estimated share of almost 46% in the global Friction Modifier Additives Market value in 2017, by Inorganic Product type. The segment is expected to register a CAGR of 3.8% within the forecast period. Also, Automotive Lubricants segment by application is expected to witness rising growth in revenue during the forecast period. As per the forecast this segment is slated to account for more than 45% share in overall market value by the end of the forecast period. This is largely due to a growing use of vehicles.
