The global lubricant anti-wear agents market size is projected to grow from USD 698 million in 2020 to USD 784 million by 2025, at a CAGR of 2.4% from 2020 to 2025.

The growing demand for high-passenger and commercial vehicles in the automotive industry is driving the lubricant anti-wear agents industry growth as well as the rising GDP in the Asia-Pacific. The increasing inclination toward electric vehicles and environmental concerns is restraining the growth of the market.

The zinc dialkldithiophosphate (ZDDP) lubricant anti-wear agents segment, by type, is projected to have the largest market share

Zinc dialkldithiophosphate (ZDDP) is a family of uncharged compounds composed of phosphorus, zinc, and sulfur traces, primarily used as anti-wear additives in lubricants such as gear oil, grease, and motor oil. Zinc dialkldithiophosphate has high thermal and hydrolytic stability and forms protective chemical films on metal surfaces which prevents corrosive damage to valve train and bearings.

ZDDPs are multifunctional because they provide wear, oxidation, and corrosion protection. Their antioxidant properties prevent soot deposits and formation of sludge on engine components. This additive provides oxidation, copper-lead bearing corrosion, and wear control majorly in diesel and gasoline engines. It is particularly effective under severe temperature and load. Thus, zinc dialkldithiophosphate enhances the properties of lubricants and is used in various applications such as engine oil, hydraulic oil, and compressor oil.

The engine oil application segment is projected to lead the global lubricant anti-wear agents market during the forecast period

Based on the application, the engine oil application segment led the lubricant anti-wear agents market in 2019. The growth of this segment can be attributed to the growth of the automotive sector mainly related to passenger cars and commercial vehicles in the developing regions of the world, and the increasing population in APAC is driving the growth of the automotive oil application segment.
