Increasing Preference for the Production of Bio-Based Automotive Antifreeze to Pave a New Path in the Market
Antifreeze poisoning is one of the well-known adverse health effects of automotive antifreeze. Apart from its toxic influence on small animals, prolonged exposure of automotive antifreeze has been suggested to cause poisoning in humans. On the other hand, automotive antifreeze causes potential harm to the environment in terms of polluting different water resources. In light of this, governments in various countries have taken disciplinary actions to offset the harmful effects of the automotive antifreeze on the environment. In a bid to meet the standards put forth by various government bodies have pushed manufacturers to incorporate bio-based antifreeze in different lubricant formulations. Owing to the environment-friendly and biodegradable nature of bio-based automotive antifreeze, consumer demand for these sustainable antifreeze solutions is likely to rise in the coming years.
Propylene Glycol-based Antifreeze Remains Highly Preferred
Owing to its higher compatibility, low-cost and non-toxicity, propylene glycol is highly sought after by automotive antifreeze manufacturers. In the traditionally used green, yellow and blue antifreeze, propylene glycol is the major component used in the cooling system based on inorganic acid technology. Adoption of inorganic acid technology remains at the helm of the demand, in turn, driving the demand for propylene glycol-based antifreeze. While ethylene glycol is also another chemical highly sought after by automakers, associated stringent regulatory framework, the high cost of handling and storage, corrosive properties and toxicity of ethylene glycol has significantly shifted manufacturers’ preference towards propylene glycol-based antifreeze products. In addition, developments in the processing technologies and favorable regulatory framework in terms of substitution of toxic compounds are further propelling the demand for propylene glycol-based automotive antifreeze.
Demand for High-Performance Lubricants to Propel the Automotive Antifreeze Market
The inception of high-performance lubrication can be tracked to the changing environmental regulations with regard to reducing carbon footprints of vehicles that demanded high-performance lubricants to enhance the fuel efficiency of the vehicle. Automotive antifreeze is added in the high-performance lubricants to protect the automotive lubricants from freezing. Moreover, vehicle owners actively seek engine maintenance to increase the durability of engine operations and, in turn, that of the overall vehicle. This has further propelled the demand for high-quality automotive antifreeze products. To meet the growing demand for efficient automotive antifreeze in high-performance vehicles, key stakeholders in the automotive antifreeze market have been observed to adopt expansion and new product launch strategies to maintain the market sustainability.
