Viscosity Index Improvers Market by Type (Polymethacrylate, Olefin Copolymer, Polyisobutylene, Others), End User Industry, Regions, Global Industry Analysis, Market Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2018 to 2025


Newark, NJ, March 05, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As per the report published by Fior Markets, the global viscosity index improvers market is expected to grow from USD 3.31 billion in 2017 to USD 4.45 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 4.53% during the forecast period from 2018-2025.

Increasing demand for two-wheeler lubricants, industrial lubricants, and automotive lubricants, to create lucrative growth opportunities for viscosity index improvers market in the upcoming years. Increasing adoption of technology, is anticipated to propel the growth of market. In addition to this, growing trend of Industry 4.0 is further offering growth opportunities for the high-performance lubricants thereby viscosity index improvers over the forecast period.

Viscosity index improvers are polymeric molecules which are sensitive to temperature. At low temperatures, the molecule chain contracts and does not impact the fluid viscosity, whereas, at high temperatures, the chain relaxes and increases the viscosity of the fluid. Viscosity Index Improvers are primarily used in the multigrade engine oils, gear oils, automatic transmission fluids, power steering fluids, greases, and various other hydraulic fluids. Lubricants have become an essential part of the modern-day industry. Almost any type of operation or machining requires some sort of lubricants in order to enhance the overall efficiency of the operation.

Global viscosity index improvers market is expected to witness rapid growth over the forecast period, owing to growing demand from automotive industry and industrial sector for the high quality lubricants that are stable at a high temperature. The susceptibility of lubricants to mechanical shearing as well as prolonged engine oil drain interval duration are anticipated to be the major restraining factors for the market growth. However, growing investment on the research and development activities, rapid ongoing industrialization in the developing economies of the world, and rising demand for the fuel efficient vehicles, are some of the factors offering the potential growth opportunities in the upcoming years.


Key players operating in the global viscosity index improvers market are The Lubrizol Corporation, Nanjing Runyou Chemical industry Additive Co., Ltd., Evonik Industries AG, Sanyo Chemical Industries, Ltd., Afton Chemical Corporation, Chevron Oronite Company LLC, Shenyang Great Wall Lubricating Oil Manufacturing Co., Ltd., BASF AG, Xingyun Chemical, Shanghai High-Lube Additives, YASHIKE LAI’EN, and BPT Chemical among others. To enhance their market position in the global viscosity index improvers market, the key players are now focusing on adopting the strategies such as product innovation, recent developments, mergers & acquisitions, joint venture, collaborations, and partnership.

  • For instance in February 2015, Evonik Industries AG announced the launch of  VISCOPLEX and VISCOBASE product lines: VISCOPLEX viscosity index improvers, VISCOPLEX pour point depressants (PPDs), VISCOPLEX for the applications like hydraulic fluids, driveline fluids, oil refineries, engine oils and specialty applications.
