Market Overview:

The global extreme pressure additives market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in this market can be attributed to the increasing demand for extreme pressure additives from the automotive and iron and steel industries. Chlorinated paraffin, sulphurized fats, and other types of extreme pressure additives are used in these industries to improve performance and reduce wear and tear. North America is expected to lead the global extreme pressure additives market during the forecast period, followed by Europe and Asia Pacific.

Global Extreme Pressure Additives Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Extreme Pressure Additives are a type of chemical that is used in lubricants to help protect the components from wear and tear. These additives work by forming a film on the surface of the component that helps to keep it separated from the other surfaces. This reduces friction and wear, which can cause damage over time.

Chlorinated Paraffin:

Chlorinated paraffin is a waxy solid hydrocarbon and has been used as an additive in the manufacturing of extreme pressure additives for over 40 years. It is also referred to as chloro paraffin or carboxy methylcellulose (CMC). Chlorinated Paraffins are prepared from crude oil by treatment with sodium hypochlorite which gives it a bluish color.

Sulphurized Fats:

Sulphurized fats are vegetable oils that have been treated with sulfur dioxide to increase their content of phospholipids. Sulphur dioxide treatment increases the proportion of negatively charged phospholipids in the oil, which results in making it water-soluble.

Application Insights:

Automotive was the largest application segment in 2017 and is projected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. Automobiles are manufactured in a way that they can withstand high pressure levels. However, additives help reduce friction and wear & tear of engine components when subjected to high pressure. The rising importance of fuel efficiency along with environmental concerns regarding carbon emissions will drive automotive manufacturers toward using HPAO products in their vehicles.

The iron and steel industry is one of the major consumers of extreme pressure additives as it deals with highly abrasive materials while producing steel products, such as rails, beams, bars etcetera. These materials require low maintenance due to their exposure to extreme temperatures during processing at various stages including smelting/melting, rolling & shaping and cooling & finishing stages.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing regional market over the forecast period. The region’s growth can be attributed to increasing automotive production in China and India. In 2017, these countries accounted for a share of 24% and 18%, respectively, in terms of global automobile production. Furthermore, iron and steel manufacturing is also anticipated to witness significant growth owing to rising demand from construction sector across Asia Pacific due to rapid urbanization coupled with growing population.

Europe was estimated as the second-largest market for extreme pressure additives after Asia Pacific in 2017 on account of high consumption levels from various end-use industries such as iron and steel manufacturing, oil exploration activities, mining industry etc., especially in Russia and Germany.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for Extreme Pressure Additives in the automotive and aerospace industries due to their ability to improve performance and durability.
  • Growing popularity of Extreme Pressure Additives in the lubricant market as a result of their superior anti-wear and corrosion protection properties.
  • Rising demand for Extreme Pressure Additives from the metalworking industry due to their ability to increase tool life and reduce wear on parts.
  • Increasing use of Extreme Pressure Additives in hydraulic fracturing applications as a result of their ability to improve well productivity rates.
