Lubricating oil additives are chemical compounds that are added to base oil to improve its lubricity. These additives are used to reduce friction and wear, improve oxidative stability, reduce foaming, and protect against corrosion and rust. Detergents, dispersants, viscosity index improvers, antioxidants, and anti-wear agents are the most commonly used additives.
The lubricating oil additives market size is estimated to be USD 18.2 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 20.4 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 2.3% during the forecast period. Lubricating oil additives are used to enhance the performance of lubricants and functional fluids. Each additive is selected for its ability to perform one or more specific functions in combination with other additives. Selected additives are formulated into packages to use with specific base stock and application. Engine oils is the largest application of lubricating oil additives.
