The lubricant additives market was valued at US$ 15,584.9 million in 2021 and is projected to reach US$ 19,880.12 million by 2028; it is expected to register a CAGR of 3.5% from 2021 to 2028.

Lubricant additives are used in the processing of synthetic lubricants, which are commonly used in the industrial and automotive sectors due to their superior characteristics to natural mineral oil. Thus, the flourishment of the industrial and automotive sectors boosts the demand for synthetic lubricants. Engine oil is the most commonly used lubricant in the automotive and industrial sectors. It has excellent physical and chemical properties, including a higher viscosity index, lower volatility, pour point, and greater thermal stability. The addition of additives such as viscosity modifiers, and pour point depressants in lubricants improves their physical and chemical properties. Hence, the extensive application of lubricants in various industries is the key factor driving the lubricants additives market as the blending of lubricants with additives enhances their performance and service life.

In 2020, Asia Pacific held the largest share of the global lubricant additives market. The major factor contributing to the growth of the market in this region is the growing demand for lubricant additives from the automotive and other manufacturing industries. The increasing development of automotive parts and components in the region with the rise in vehicle production, coupled with continuous innovations from automotive fuel manufacturers, creates lucrative opportunities for the lubricant market, which, in turn, drives the market growth. Further, growing construction activities, especially in China and India, are likely to attract global market players to establish their businesses in Asia Pacific. Heavy commercial vehicles are widely used in China as consumers prefer them due to their high carrying capacity and strong suspension systems. Therefore, they are helpful in transportation activities. Heavy commercial vehicles, for instance, trucks, are widely used in logistics, construction, and agriculture due to their heavy load-carrying capacity. They are mainly used for transporting debris and materials from one location to another in any terrain. All these factors will drive the market demand for lubricant additives.
