Global Forging Lubricants Market: Introduction
Forging lubricants are added to improve the efficiency and productivity of the forging process. Forging lubricants improve the efficiency of the process by reducing friction between dies and work pieces. A typical forging lubricant may comprise demineralized water, graphite, binding agents, stabilizers, thickeners and corrosion inhibitors. Lubrication of dies promotes smooth motion between metal and metal, easy handling and release of the forged part, cooling of the system to remove undesirable heat from dies, and protection of dies, which increases the average life span of dies. There has been an increase in the use of water-based forging lubricants for efficient cooling of the system.
Global Forging Lubricants Market: Dynamics
A number of factors have boosted the demand for forging lubricants over the forecast period. There has been significant improvement in die life. A large amount of raw material is injected into complex dies. As a result, due to the complexity of dies, all the parts of dies are not uniformly cooled. To improve the efficiency of parts, a number of complex forging dies are being manufactured, which lead to the deposition of materials in complex geometries. As a result, there has been a growing need of forging lubricants to cope with uneven cooling and thermal management and easy removal of forged parts.
One of the major factors restraining the growth of the global forging lubricants market is the additional operation cost associated with the use of lubricants in the forging process. Moreover, the technical constraints related to the viscosity and application of lubricants may in some cases lead to porosity in the forged part.
There has been an increase in the use of water-based lubricants to reduce operational cost and improve thermal management as a significant amount of heat is evolved during the forging process. Forging lubricants also provide additional cooling to the system. Moreover, there has been an increase in the use of robotics for the application of die lubricants.
There has also been an increasing trend for the use of magnesium metal for forging with low porosity and high ductility, thereby creating significant demand for forging lubricants over the forecast period.
