Global Viscosity Index Improver Industry to Hit US$ 5.39 Billion by 2034 Amid Urbanization and Industrialization Trends

Viscosity Index Improver

Future Market Insights’ new survey estimates that the viscosity index improver industry is anticipated to be worth US$ 4.06 billion in 2024 and is projected to reach US$ 5.39 billion by 2034, witnessing a CAGR of 2.90% from 2024 to 2034.

The demand for specific types of lubricants has significantly increased due to the need for efficient operation of various automobile components such as the engine, transmission, and differential gearbox. Each of these components requires specific types of lubricants to function accurately.

Demand for viscosity improvers has significantly advanced in past years, with yearly global consumption reporting by 2.3%. Rapid urbanization and industrialization are to blame for the market boom. Engines, machinery, and other items cannot function without lubricants. By lowering the friction between any two moving parts, they elevate operating efficiency and minimize power or energy loss. They also reduce maintenance expenses by preventing friction-related equipment wear and strain.

The global surge in the automobile industry, especially in developing economies, is a significant factor backing lubricant sales. This is due to rising disposable income, improved living standards, and easy financing access. This, in turn, has boosted the demand for automobiles and lubricants in China and India.

Viscosity improvers also allow for the creation of multigrade oils, eliminating the need for seasonal oil changes. Low-viscosity oils can be thickened with viscosity index improvers, extending their lubricating properties over a larger temperature range. The automotive industry is the largest consumer of lubricants, as engine temperatures change dramatically during driving. The demand for lubricants is significant as they serve the following purposes:

  • Controlling friction and wear
  • Protecting the engine from rust
  • Cooling pistons
  • Protecting engine oil from combustion gases

The viscosity of lubricating oil is the most important factor influencing its consumption. Viscosity index improvers (VIIs) are added to lubricants to prevent motor oil/lubricant from evaporating. These additives improve the quality of the base stock under various operating conditions and help machines meet high-performance standards.

“The VIIs market is likely driven by rising automotive sales, particularly in the Asia Pacific region, which is raising demand for high-performance lubricant additives like viscosity improvers. Unorganized players, such as local and grey market players, compete fiercely with major lubricant manufacturers, offering products created in-house under their brands. This competition limits multinational players’ opportunities to grow their market share and restricts their investment in regional markets.” says an analyst of Future Market Insights.
