society would not be running smoothly without lubricants. Lubricants form a
protective film between two moving parts and allow the parts to move without
requiring too much energy. While characterizing lubricants and evaluating their
quality, the most important parameter is the viscosity index (VI). These are
additives that rise the viscosity of the fluid throughout its useful
temperature range. Viscosity improvers are mainly used in multigrade engine
oils, gear oils, automatic transmission fluids, power steering fluids, greases,
and various hydraulic fluids. Viscosity improvers are widely used in the
automobile industry and this is because automobiles are subjected to terrific
temperature swings. Viscosity index improvers are used to limit the rate of
viscosity change with the temperature. These improvers have a slight effect on
oil viscosity at the low temperatures. However, when heated the improvers
enable the oil viscosity to increase within the limited range. This quality is
most useful in the application of multi-grade motor oils.
index improvers accomplish the maximum efficiency, performs better even at low
temperature and defend the equipment from harmful wear. The demand for
viscosity index improvers is increasing from the end-user industries due to its
applications that help to drive the growth of the market. Increasing demand for
lubricants is the major growth factor of the viscosity index improvers market.
Furthermore, rising demand for viscosity index improvers for the automotive
industry and industrial lubricant are also driving the growth of the market.
The growth in automotive, energy, and industrial machinery sector increasing
the demand of the viscosity index improvers. However, the rise in the oil drain
interval reduces the consumption of engine oils in automobiles is anticipated
to restrain the growth of the market. The increasing need for improvement in
the fuel economy is expected to provide wide opportunities to the viscosity
index improvers market in the future.
Asia-Pacific has the largest market share of the viscosity index improvers market due to increasing demand from the automobile sector in developing
economies such as China and India. Manufacturers tend to prepare their products
with high-end safety and superior quality to the customers in the global
market. This is projected to act as a catalyst for the growth of the global
viscosity index improvers market in the future.
