According to a report published by Grand View Research, Inc.; the global metalworking fluids market is anticipated to reach a valuation of around USD 11.99 billion by 2022. Increasing usage of metalworking fluids in automotive and heavy machinery due to its efficient performance can drive the market over the forecast period (2012 to 2022). In addition, high government funding and growing infrastructure development can boost the market growth in the coming years.
Growing production volumes in sectors such as automobile, marine, aerospace, and defense are likely to drive the growth of the market for metalworking fluids. These fluids are extremely useful in machine operations with a high risk of damage. This has increased the demand from manufacturing units with low volumes and restricted cost structures, largely preferred by small manufacturers. This factor is anticipated to propel the global market.
Machinery producing techniques such as machining, forming, forging, stamping, and bending are used to shape specific pieces of metal. Metalworking fluids can be used for various machining operations like turning, drilling, grinding, milling, and broaching. They are also being used to increase tool life and to provide excellent surface finish. These factors are expected to impel market growth in near future. However, high cost of bio-based products can challenge the market expansion for the next few years to come.
