Future Market Insights’ newly published market report, “Friction Modifier Additives Market: Global Industry Analysis 2012 – 2021 and Opportunity Assessment 2022 – 2032,” examines the Friction Modifier Additives Market and provides a revised forecast of the global market for the 10 year period 2022 – 2032.

According to the report, the Friction Modifier Additives inorganic product type segment is expected to dominate the market accounting for over 25% share in overall market value by 2022 end, thereby registering a CAGR of 4.3% during the forecast period (2022 – 2032).

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.
