Global Metalworking Fluids Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Metalworking fluids (MWFs) are used to cool and lubricate metalworking tools and parts. MWFs also remove machining debris and protect the workpiece from corrosion.

Metal Removal Fluids:

Metal removal fluids (MRF) are used in metal cutting applications to remove the metal from the work piece. Metal removal fluids can be classified as aggressive and non-aggressive based on their properties. Aggressive MRFs such as sodium hydroxide, polyacrylamide, and others have a high growth rate which makes them suitable for hard materials like steel while non-aggressive MRFs such as citric acid, lactic acid are used for softer materials like copper.

Metal Forming Fluids:

Metal forming fluids are used in metalworking fluids (Mwf) market for the manufacturing of metal parts and components. Metalforming Fluids are also known as Metal Injection Molds or Molding Fluids. These fluids are generally made up of solvents, plasticizers, lubricants and surfactants along with other additives that help in carrying out operations at high temperatures and pressures.

Application Insights:

The automotive application segment led the global metalworking fluids market in 2017 and is projected to expand at a revenue-based CAGR of XX% over the forecast period. The growth can be attributed to increasing automobile production across the globe, coupled with stringent regulations regarding pollution levels in automobiles.

Automotive manufacturing involves use of various processes including cutting & welding as well as heat treatment for enhancing durability of vehicles. All these processes require different types of metals working fluids that are used according to their characteristics for each process type mentioned above. Automotive applications include body & chassis (light) vehicle structure; engine & power train; and electronics assembly which involve extensive use of metalworking fluids along with other process aids such as lubricants and coolants during manufacturing operations at automotive plants globally.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific was the leading regional market in 2017 and is anticipated to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The region accounts for a major share of global population and GDP, which results in high demand from end-use industries such as construction, automotive, consumer goods manufacturing etc.

The growing industrialization across emerging economies of Asia Pacific has triggered an increase in investments by various multinational companies for expanding their business operations within and outside the region. This scenario is expected to drive product demand over the forecast period.

North America accounted for more than 20% revenue share owing to high consumption levels of metalworking fluids coupled with increasing R&D activities related to metal processing technologies across several sectors including aerospace & defense, automotive & transportation equipment are expected to drive industry growth over the next eight years.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for metalworking fluids from the automotive and aerospace industries due to the growth of these sectors.
  • Rising demand for environmentally friendly metalworking fluids that can reduce emissions and waste products.
  • Growing popularity of nanotechnology-based metalworking fluids that offer superior performance over traditional fluids.
  • Proliferation of automated manufacturing processes that require high-performance metalworking fluids for improved productivity and quality control.
