ZDDP Additive Market was valued at USD 2.8 billion in 2021 and is anticipated to grow at USD 3.2 billion by 2028 recording a CAGR of 1.5% during the forecast period 2022-2028. Zinc Dialkyl Dithiophosphate (ZDDP) is a lubricating oil additive having exceptionally high hydraulic and thermal stability. ZDDP Additive Market is generally used along with other additives such as dispersants, detergents and acid neutralizers in automotive engine oil and industrial lubricants. ZDDP additive provides oxidation, copper-lead bearing corrosion and wear control in diesel and gasoline engines. It is particularly viable under the extreme pressure, severe temperature and load conditions experienced in highly supercharged diesel engines. Invented in 1940s, ZDDP has been the most sought after antiwear additive in use for more than 70 years. During engine operation, ZDDP breaks down and forms a thin solid film that adheres to the metal surfaces preventing intermediate contact. Zinc dialkyldithiophosphates additive, 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.
