Viscosity Index Improver Market Size, Share And Global Trend By Type (Polymethacrylate, OlefinCopolymer, Polyisobutylene), By End user (Automotive, Off-Road Vehicles, Industrial Machinery), And Geography Forecast Till 2022-2029

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI100518 | Status : Ongoing



The machines and engines used in the industrial and automotive sector do not run at a constant temperature throughout. Therefore, using lubricants helps the engine perform efficiently at all temperatures. Viscosity index improvers are the additives used to improve the performance of the engine by improving the performance of the lubricant at high and low temperatures. Viscosity index improvers are made up of polymeric molecules which tend to maintain viscosity of lubricant at high and low temperature condition. Automotive industry forms a large share of use of lubricants.

On the basis of type, global viscosity index improver market can be segmented into polymethacrylate, olefin copolymer, polyisobutylene, and others. Polymethacrylate dominates this market with more than half shares in terms of volume and capacity. On the basis of end user, global viscosity index improver market can be segmented into automotive, off-road vehicles, industrial machinery, and others. The rise in demand for vehicles is the factor which has seen the market occupy more percentage in the automotive sector.
