Aminic Antioxidants Market: Factors Influencing Growth
Increasing preference of aminic antioxidants as alternatives for zinc dialkyldiphosphates is found to be a key factor assisting the aminic antioxidants market growth. Over the past few years, zinc dialkyldiphosphates have been utilized as additives in engine oil and lubricating oil, owing to their anti-oxidation and anti-wear properties. However, in the recent past, various environmental regulations have enforced the reduction of phosphorous content in engine oils, which necessitates an increase in the level of aminic antioxidants in order to make up for the loss of ZDDP’s anti-oxidation capability.
Instability in raw material supply and cost pressure are translating to an increase in the price of aminic antioxidants. In the recent past, raw material prices have witnessed an upward trend, along with the energy costs, which in turn has been affecting the overall cost of aminic antioxidants.
Investments in research and development activities in order to improve production processes and expansion of production capacities for aminic antioxidants are found to be the key trends identified in the aminic antioxidants market around the globe. For instance, recently, Songwon and BASF invested in the expansion of the production facilities for aminic antioxidants, particularly in Asia-Pacific.
