Organic friction modifier (OFM) additives are being increasingly used in lubrication of aviation, automobile, energy/ power, rail and industrial components. OFM additives can make a huge difference to the tribological characteristics of the lubricant. Thus, organic friction modifiers are emerging as essential additives in the lubrication of mechanical components and particularly of automobile engines where performance enhancements are persistently sough-after. In recent years, demand for OFM additives has increased to a significant extent owing to their benefits and superior functionality. A recent report published by Future Market Insights (FMI) projects that the global organic friction modifier additives market will expand at a CAGR little under 5% during 2017 to 2022, to surpass a valuation of US$ 500 Mn. However, greater availability of similar and cost-effective alternatives such as detergent additives, oiliness agents, dispersant additives, corrosion and oxidation inhibitor anti-wear agents among others is expected to hamper the global sales of OFM additives. Besides, fluctuations in oil prices couple with uncertainties regarding upcoming polices in the oil and gas industry continue to pose a threat to the market. 

Realising the opportunity, manufacturers are emphasising on capacity expansion and further enhancement of product efficacy. In addition, companies that are operating in the global organic friction modifier additives market are likely to concentrate on collaborations, partnerships, and M&A activities in order to gain competitive advantage. Market players are likely improve their sales and distribution network by entering into strategic partnerships and joint ventures. At the same time, many of the companies have stepped up efforts towards innovation. Dow Chemical Company Limited, BASF SE, Multisol Ltd, Eastman Chemical Co., Cargill, Inc., Chemtura Corporation (LANXESS Solutions US, Inc.), International Lubricants Inc.,Celanese Corporation, Croda International Plc, and Afton Chemicals Corporation are among the top companies in the world that manufacture OFM additives.

Global Organic Friction Modifier Additives Market: Key Segment Analysis

On the basis of additive type, the global organic friction modifier additives market is segmented into polymers, esters & amides, fatty acids and others. Among these, the polymers segment is expected to hold the top position throughout the forecast period. By 2017-end, this segment is expected to command for more than one-fourth share of the global market in terms of revenue. Towards the end of 2022, this segment is estimated to reach a valuation in excess of US$ 170 Mn, reflecting a steady CAGR.
