Reports and Data has published a novel report on global Friction Modifiers Market to offer a comprehensive overview of the market and help investors, users understand market dynamics and make investment plans accordingly.

The global friction modifiers market is forecast to reach USD 1,195.7 Million by 2028, according to a new report by Reports and Data. The demand for the friction modifiers are propelling in various applications as incorporating these additives help reduce the frictional motions in the machineries and combustion hydraulic engines. The reduction of the frictional losses and through more efficient lubrication the amount of carbon dioxide emissions can be drastically reduced and the efficiency of the automotive vehicles are largely propelled. Other than Automotive segment, the engineering vehicles and the industrial machineries are some of the most lucrative sectors of this market. The organic modifiers are expected to be in high demand due to higher availability and eco-friendliness towards the nature.

Further key findings from the report suggest:

  • Automotive industries are the largest market for the friction modifiers due to maximum possible convenience. Also, the high potential in the automotive market is helping in the growth of the market. The automotive applications had the highest market share of 26.1% in the year 2018 and would continue growing with a rate of 4.0% during the forecast period.
  • The lubricants are used in industrial machineries and other equipment in order to lower the frictional forces and increase in efficiency of the machine. The productivity and life cycle of the machines are highly correlated and effected if the frictional forces are high. Machinery segment exhibits a considerable market share. The market share for the same in 2026 is estimated to be 15.3%, having grown at a CAGR of 3.6% in the forecast period.
  • Organomolybdenum Friction Modifiers (MoFM) work as antiwear additives and effectively reduce the boundary friction. Molybdenum dithiocarbamates (MoDTCs) and molybdenum dithiophosphates (MoDTPs) are some of instances of this segment. These modifiers are used in the engine and gear oils. The segment had a market revenue of USD 339.3 Million in 2018 and the forecasted CAGR is 4.0% from 2019 to 2026.
