Viscosity Index Improvers Market - Overview

Viscosity index improvers are added to lubricants for improving their viscosity index, enabling them to perform desirably even at high temperatures. Viscosity index improver molecules expand at high temperatures, thereby increasing the internal resistance of the fluid to flow, enabling it to flow at a slower rate and increasing its overall viscosity. Increasing demand for lubricants is expected to be a major driver of the viscosity index improvers market during the forecast period.
