Based on functional type, the oxidation inhibitors segment is expected to lead the lubricating oil additives market during the forecast period

Based on the functional type, the oxidation inhibitors segment is expected to be the fastest-growing segment of the lubricating oil additives market during the forecast period. Oxidation inhibitors are used to reduce thickening and inhibit acid formation in a wide variety of applications, such as engine oil, gear oil, hydraulic oil, automatic transmission fluid, industrial oil, and compressor oil. Oxidation inhibitors also help prevent the degradation of lubricants over time.

Based on application, the engine oil segment is projected to lead the lubricating oil additives market during the forecast period

Based on the application, the engine oil segment was the largest segment of the lubricating oil additives market in 2017. The demand for engine oil is backed by the increasing motorization rate globally and the strong focus of additive manufacturers on research & development activities to formulate efficient additive packages according to the specifications of OEMs.

The automotive segment is projected to be the fastest-growing end-use industry of the lubricating oil additives market during the forecast period

Based on the end-use industry, the automotive segment is expected to be the fastest-growing segment of the lubricating oil additives market during the forecast period. The automotive end-use industry dominates the lubricating oil additives market due to the high demand for engine oil from passenger cars and commercial vehicles. The growth is also driven by the focus of additive manufacturers on the research & development of advanced automotive additives to reduce emission and increase the performance of automotive lubricants.
