Top 9 Vendors in the Polymethacrylate Market in VII and PPD from 2016 to 2020: Technavio

LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top nine leading vendors in their recent global polymethacrylate market in viscosity index improvers (VII) and pour-point depressants (PPD) report. The report also presents the vendor landscape and a corresponding detailed analysis of the five prominent vendors operating in the market.

Synthetic and fire-resistant fluids are characteristically merged with additives packages that have higher quantities of viscosity index modifiers in comparison to additive packages for mineral oil‐based hydraulic fluids. Viscosity index modifiers, such as polymethacrylate provides the fluid with shear stability at high temperatures. Therefore, an increase in the consumption of synthetic and fire‐resistant hydraulic fluids will drive the consumption of viscosity index modifiers during the forecast period.

Competitive vendor landscape

The current global polymethacrylate market in VII and PPD is dominated by few major players such as Afton, Chevron Oronite, Lubrizol, Evonik, and Infineum. However, there has been a consistent rise in the number of local players who manufacture motor oils through various cheaper production processes.

The entry barriers are not significantly high for new players in the industry as they have easy access to the manufacturing technology. With an increasing commoditization of lubricant, the scope for differentiation is getting limited. Vendors therefore primarily compete on the terms of distribution and reach so as to ensure maximum reach of the product,” says Ajay Adikhari, a lead specialty chemicals analyst from Technavio.
