Metal Deactivator Market: By Metals (Copper, Aluminum, Alloys & Others), By Formulation (Water based & Oil based), By End-User Industry (Industrial, Automotive, Aviation Jet Fuel, Polymers, Food & Agriculture) & By Geography – Forecast (2015-2020)

Date: 2016-01

“Metal Deactivators are form of fuel additives and oil additive that are used to stabilize fluids by disabling non-ferrous metal ions. It reduces the negative effects in the lubricant such as staining and corrosion. Moreover, it counteracts the catalytic effect of the metal ions that can trigger reactions facilitating the putrefaction of the lubricants. There are at times many undesirable fuel reactions, such as a darkening of color, gum formation or sedimentation which could lead to the risk of fuel degradation. Metal Deactivator is a proven, highly-effective solution for eliminating the catalytic effect, trace dissolved concentrations of metals like copper, vanadium and iron can have on fuel degradation. It works by chelating dissolved trace metals to reduce the catalytic process at its source. After assessing the level and nature of metal contamination present in the fuel, a customized solution using metal deactivators combined with a blend of other additives and at a specified dosage rate is added to the fuel to prevent unwanted reactions. Moreover, they are used to minimize the galvanic or bimetallic corrosion that can take place between different metal alloys.
For the purpose of this report, metal deactivator additives are broadly segregated into four segments that are metals, formulation, end-user industry and geography. This report is intended to be a broad examination and analysis of the consumption pattern of metal deactivator additives pertaining to the mentioned segmentations.
The main factor owing to the growth of this industry is growing automotive sector, which will upsurge the demand for metal deactivator additives
Metal deactivators find a wide range of industry need, especially where a lubricant is in contact with a transition metal or reactive metal substrate. They are useful in applications pertaining to industrial (refineries & metalworking), automotive, aviation, industrial polymers and food & agriculture sectors. Metal deactivators have another aspect where they help in increasing the effectiveness of other additives such as antioxidants by optimizing the dosage of antioxidants. Additionally, this market has also been segmented into the type of metals on which metal deactivators are effective upon.
The overall market has also been consolidated from the perspective of different geographic locations into standard geographic regions and key economies for this market. The regions covered in this report are Americas, Europe, Asia-Pacific (APAC) and the Middle East & Africa. Competitive landscape for industry and market players are profiled with attributes of company overview, financial overview, business strategies, product portfolio and recent developments. This report also includes profiles of the major companies providing MDA such as BASF SE (Germany), Vanderbilt Chemicals LLC (U.S.), Songwon Industrial Co.
