Metalworking Fluids Market

Metalworking Fluids Market to Receive Impetus, as Demand for Precision Machining Heightens    

Metalworking operations are characterized as highly frictional, heat generating and pressurized applications. Loss of additives during metalworking processes affects machine effectiveness and causes increase in friction. Metalworking fluids are complex chemical formulations, predominantly applied to machine parts while performing metalworking operations.

Further, newer processes, such as flow forming, hydro forming and low carbon manufacturing, are gaining ground and these are dependent on metalworking fluids for proper functioning. Thus, spurring applications of metalworking fluids in precision machining applications globally is set to fuel demand of metalworking fluids at a CAGR of around 4% through the forecast period.

Transportation Equipment Snowballing Demand for Metalworking Fluids

Based on end use, metalworking fluid for transportation equipment accounts for a notable share in 2019. Metal working fluids are predominantly used in transportation equipment in automotive and aerospace. These equipment are involved in production of automotive components and aerospace machining where the equipment requires regular lubrication with cooling.

Use of metalworking fluids ensures emission of non-hazardous by-products and makes the workplace free of contamination. Furthermore, use of exotic metals, such as titanium, platinum, palladium, gallium, etc., in both engine and powertrain production in automobiles and other applications has also increased the demand for metalworking fluids. On the backdrop of aforementioned factors, consumption of metalworking fluids for transportation equipment will increase at a significant rate over the forecast period.

Know More Details About the Report

Market Growth Hindered Owing to Stringent Regulations related to Waste Disposal

Several key regulatory agencies around world such as OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Organization) and EPA (Environmental Protection Agencies) have policies in place to ensure the safe disposal of used cutting fluids into the environment, which could hamper the growth of metalworking fluids market.

Metalworking fluids consumers in machining and fabrication need to invest in expensive ETP (effluent treatment plant) in order to meet environmental and waste treatment regulations. At the same time, situation has enabled manufacturers to provide alternatives which possess features, such as low toxicity, high purity, easy maintainability and limited environmental impact.

China to Gather Large Chunk of Market Share

China being largest automotive producer in the world has dominated the global metalworking fluids market in 2018 and is projected to maintain its supremacy in the market, accounting for over one fourth of the revenue share by 2029. Further, presence of large manufacturing facilities, aerospace industries, marine and automotive industries coupled with relatively low prices of metalworking fluids is poised to assist the market’s growth during the forecast period.

Moreover, Japan holds a prominent market share in terms of consumption of metalworking fluids. Being a mature market, Europe and North America are expected to show similar trend with sluggish growth throughout the forecast period.
