Global Metal Deactivator (MDA) Market, By Metal (Aluminum, Copper, Iron, Alloys, Others), By Type (Oil-Based, Water-Based), By End-Use Industry (Automotive, Industrial, Polymer, Food & Agriculture), By Region (North America, Eastern Europe, Western Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, Rest of the World) – Market Size & Forecasting (2016-2028)

The Metal deactivator (MDA) Market is expected to promise high growth owing to the growth of industrial automobile and polymer industry products in recent years. Increasing demand from applications including automotive, industrial, polymer, food & agriculture and others are expected to drive the growth of the market.

Metal deactivator (MDA) is an additive, which reduces the oxidation process of trace metals in fuel and lubricating oils. This prevents corrosion and staining of metal parts in contact with fuel and oils. These additives increase the stability of fluids by deactivating metal ions. They also help in reducing corrosion of different metal alloys. The alternative for MDAs is antioxidants. However, the high cost of antioxidants results in higher demand for MDAs.

Segment Insights

MDAs are widely used by fuel and lubricant manufacturers to increase purity and minimize the catalytic effects of metal components in their products. The increasing demand for high-quality fuel and lubricants across the automotive and manufacturing industries is expected to drive the demand for MDAs.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • Rising automobile production
  • Growing manufacturing industry
  • Increasing demand for polymer industry products
