Sales Analysis of Bio-based Coolants (2017-2021) Vs. Market Forecasts (2022-2032)

Bio-based coolants are formed with biodegradable and renewable base stocks. Being biodegradable is the most obvious advantage of bio-based lubricants. They are produced from renewable and sustainable substitutes of raw materials as compared to conventional chemical-based coolants. Bio-based coolants are thus environment-friendly and have reduced carbon content.

The market is slated to grow over the coming years at the behest of market players adopting approaches such as investing huge amounts and collaborating to develop new bio-based coolant products and optimize their methods of production.

  • Short Term (2022 Q2 to 2025): Advantages of bio-based coolants likely to drive their usage in end-use industries over the short term.
  • Medium Term (2025-2028): Unique properties of bio-based coolants, such as being less toxic and nature-friendly, likely to support medium-term growth of the market.
  • Long Term (2028-2032): Investments undertaken by key players in R&D to augment their production capacities and maintain their market position will be seen in the long term.

Over the 2017-2021 historical period, the global bio-based coolants market registered a CAGR of 2%, and according to Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, the market is projected to exhibit growth at 3.2% CAGR between 2022 and 2032.

Bio-based coolants market forecast by Fact.MR

Market share analysis of bio-based coolants based on type and region is provided in a nutshell in the above image. Under the type segment, the propylene glycol sub-segment dominates with 51.2% market share in 2022.

Why is Demand for Bio-based Coolants Rising Steadily?

“Advanced Properties of Bio-based Coolants Supporting Demand Growth”

Bio-based coolants provide naturally better lubrication and have superior viscosity and pressure performance. They also provide better thin-film strength, low volatility, and a high flash point.

These lubricants have superior lubricity, which invariably reduces friction. This reduced friction leads to a reduction in cutting forces and less production of heat in metal cutting processes and allows the tools to be fed faster. Less friction also reduces the wear on grinding wheels and cutting tools, providing them with an extended shelf life.

In addition to the above factors, bio-lubricants have much higher flash points than petroleum, which allows higher feed rates, reduction of smoke while cutting metal, and a less smoky environment. These oils also have a polar attraction to metal as compared to petroleum-based fluids that have no polarity of affinity to metal.

The polarity of bio-based lubricants offers more effective thin film protection and metal affinity to cutting tool interfaces.

Thus, all these advanced properties of bio-based coolants are set to drive their demand over the forecast years of 2022-2032.

“Gearing Applications of Bio-based Coolants Adding to their Popularity”

The characteristics of bio-based coolants benefit the processes of shaving, shaping, hobbing, grinding, broaching, etc., which aids in improving typical performance and enhancing tool life.

Speed can be increased with the help of a reduction in cutting forces and friction heat. Bio-based lubricants provide significant improvements in gear grinding, with less chance of burning any part.

Reduction in friction improves surface finish, quality, and wheel life. It also prevents premature catering, enhancing its usage in several applications.

Why are Market Players Profiting from Bio-based Propylene Glycol?

The bio-based coolants market, under type, is segmented into glycerin, propylene glycol, bio-based ethylene glycol, and others.

Amongst them, the bio-based propylene glycol segment dominates with 51.2% share in the overall market. Growth if this segment is attributed to propylene glycol acting as a base fluid for coolants. The cost-effectiveness of this fluid and its ability to be used in all climatic conditions makes it preferable over others fluids.

Also, propylene glycol is used in several industrial and automotive engine cooling solutions, along with food and pharmaceutical applications as antifreeze products.

Thus, owing to these factors, the bio-based propylene glycol market is set to register 3.7% CAGR over the decade.

Which End-use Industry Accounts for Highest Bio-based Coolant Demand?

Under end-use industry, the bio coolants market is segmented into metalworking industry, HVAC industry, automotive, plastic extrusion process, energy production and storage, aerospace industry, and others.

Amongst these, the metalworking industry holds a major market share of 23.4% and is expected to expand at 4.1% CAGR.

Growth of this segment is attributed to factors such high usage of bio-based coolants in the metalworking industry in light to heavy-duty operations for metal cutting operations, along with their use in reducing and removing the heat cutting zone.
