Metalworking Fluids Market Size, Historical Analysis, Emerging Technologies, Global Trends and Industry Set For Rapid Growth in Automotive & Construction Application by 2023

metalworking fluids
Global metalworking fluids market: by fluid type (straight oils, soluble oils, synthetic oils, and semi-synthetic oils), application (transportation equipment, industrial machinery, automotive, construction, metal fabrication), region – Forecast till 2013

Metalworking fluids are the range of oils and lubricating liquids that are used to cool and/or smoothen the metal work-piece when they undergo various mechanical processes such as machining, grounding, milling, and others. These fluids help to prevent the heat generation and excessive friction between the cutting tools and the work-piece. Additionally, the use of metalworking fluid helps to improve the quality of the workpiece by continuously removing the fines, chips, and the small pieces of metal, from the tool being used and the surface of the workpiece.

They serve the important metalworking operations such as removal, forming, cutting, treating fluids, and protection. For any of these things to happen smoothly, it is imperative that the fluid gets to the point of operation and that it gets there with sufficient volume and velocity to do the work required. The metalworking fluids find their applications in numerous end-user wherein metal is an integral part of the process. The major applications of the metalworking fluids can be found in transportation & automotive, industrial machinery, metal fabrication, and construction industry, among others.

The protuberant factors driving the growth of the global metalworking fluids are the rapid industrialization in Asia-Pacific and African countries, growing automotive industry, and increasing construction activities around the world. The global vehicle sale marked nearly 80 million units in 2017 and it is expected to grow at significant rate in coming years due to rising demand for the passenger vehicles from the emerging economies. The global transportation sector is witnessing new normal with flourishing world trade. Being the largest consumer of metalworking fluid, this growth trend in the transportation sector is likely to favor growth of the global metalworking fluids market. Moreover, shifting consumer preference towards the customized cars and increasing demand for the light-weight, fuel-efficient vehicles on the backdrop of increasing environmental concerns is projected to fuel demand for the metalworking fluids in coming years. However, the capital-intensive nature of metalworking, gradual reduction of metal parts in automotive, and volatility of crude oil prices are the major factors restraining the growth of the market during the forecast period. Nevertheless, the major end-use industries such as aerospace, defense, and marine will continue to use the metal-based structures on account for the strength the material provides.
