Driveline Additives Market

Shift towards Automatic and Dual-Clutch Transmission to Fuel Driveline Additives Market Growth

Automatic and continuous variable transmission is set to gain traction over the forecast period, which will accelerate the demand for driveline additives. Efficacy to offer unique metal friction and optimized driveline performance will propel the demand for driveline additives.

Rising fuel costs and growing consumer inclination for improving fuel efficiency of vehicles is poised to drive the market over the next few years. Driveline additives market is projected to grow at a higher rate over conventional lubricant additives market, due to its numerous on-road and off-road applications.

Owing to its increasing off-road applications in agriculture, construction, mining and forestry heavy machinery the global driveline additives market accounted for over 35% share of the global lubricant additives market in 2018.

The production of driveline additives is anticipated to soar in East Asia with a corresponding spurt in demand. This can be attributed to the growing popularity of automatic transmission cars in countries such as China as well as an increase in the number of domestic players.

Owing to the aforementioned factors, the prices for driveline additives in this region are projected to witness a steady course during the forecast period.
