Zinc Dialkyldithiophosphates Additive Market Synopsis:


Zinc Dialkyldithiophosphates Additive Market also known as ZDDP additive, is a class of coordination compounds that contains zinc bound to dialkyldithiophosphoric acid. ZDDP additives are soluble in non-polar solvents, minerals, and synthetic oils.  These additives are extensively used in the automobile industry as corrosion inhibitors, antioxidants, and anti-wear additives in hydraulic oils, motor oils, and greases. Zinc dialkyldithiophosphates additive provides enhanced protection to lifter bores, rod bearings, main bearings, and camshaft lobes among others. The increasing demand for additives to increase the shelf life of engines along with the need for reduction in emissions is expected to affect the growth of the global ZDDP additive market positively. The growing number of vehicles across  the globe is the major factor driving the zinc dialkyldithiophosphates additive market. Moreover, growing purchasing power in the developing economies is expected to contribute considerably to the growth of the zinc dialkyldithiophosphates additive market. Moreover, stringent government regulation to check the emissions from vehicles across the globe is further augmenting the demand for zinc dialkyldithiophosphates additives. However, the growing demand for electric vehicles is a major downside to the growth of the market.


Among the various end-use industries in the zinc dialkyldithiophosphates additive market, the automobile constitutes the major market share and is expected show the same trend during the review period.  The growing applications as lubricants, greases, antioxidants, corrosion inhibitors, and others are anticipated to contribute to the growth of the market substantially.

Recent Development

Apr 2021 - Rislone, has upgraded its Engine Oil Supplement with zinc treatment by incorporating the best of Hy-per Lube Zinc Replacement Additive to create an even stronger engine-protecting formula. New Rislone Hy-per Lube Zinc ZDDP Supplement protects against friction and wear in various vehicles, including antique and classic cars, motorcycles, trucks, hot rods, daily drivers, and race cars, with gasoline or diesel powertrains. Rislone Hy-per Lube Zinc ZDDP Supplement is a petroleum oil performance “booster” that combines ZDDP (zinc dialkyl dithiophosphate), phosphorous extreme pressure agents, and mixed esters to enhance regular motor oil and turn it into a high-performance lubricant that protects internal engine components, including flat tappet camshafts, lifters, pistons, pushrod tips and the remainder of the valvetrain in older engines and racing applications. Modern oil no longer includes the level of ZDDP these engines need.
