Functional fluids are a broad categorization of numerous types of fluids ranging from brake fluids to process oils. These are largely employed in the industrial operations. Alongside, the functional fluids can also be used as a reactant in several process steps, ranging from raw material to the finished product production. Functional fluids are often considered along with lubricants, both synthetic and natural, and comprise a sizeable proportion of the same.
The rising prominence of metalworking fluids with minimal mineral oil content are the latest development in the global functional fluids market. Additionally, the manufacturers are also focused on the research & development of greener products that are environmentally acceptable.
Functional Fluids Market Dynamics
The rising demand of the high performance products in the industrial metal fabrication is expected to propel the market for functional fluids over the forecast period. The optimistic growth in the global automotive production as well as the on road fleet is anticipated to keep the consumption of the functional fluids to expand on a higher note throughout the forecast period. The large investments in developing newer base stock facilities are expected to maintain the current functional fluids production scenario to grow optimistically. Moreover, the functional fluids, based on their performance features offer reduced overall maintenance time as well as turnaround costs which make them the most preferred choice among the end users.
The rising environmental concerns are compelling the manufacturers to develop the environmental friendly products. This is expected to have a moderately negative impact on the global functional fluids market in the short term. The downstream Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) are strongly noted to abide by these regulations and are adopting the greener alternative products available in the market. Hence, the manufacturers focused on commercializing these products are expected to have the “first – movers’ advantage” and witness a lucrative growth over the forecast period.
