Metal cleaning is referred to as washing or degreasing of metal parts. The general objective of metal cleaning is to remove foreign matter from a solid substrate, leaving its surface untouched. The aim behind cleaning is to attain a surface condition that matches the requirements of post process operations or finished parts. Metal parts and equipment must be cleaned from time to time to prevent damage and maintain efficiency of operations. The metal cleaning chemicals market is projected to register a CAGR of 4.9% between 2015 and 2020 to reach USD 16.3 Billion by 2020.

The aqueous-based metal cleaners segment leads the global metal cleaning chemicals market and accounted for 84% of overall market, in terms of volume, in 2014. The market is mainly driven by huge demand from the manufacturing industry. The Asia-Pacific region is projected to register the highest growth in the market between 2015 and 2020. The growing industrial and manufacturing industry base is the key driver of the market in the region. Asia-Pacific countries such as China, India, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan are also expected to witness steady growth during the forecast period. On the other hand, North America and Europe are projected to witness a moderate growth during the forecast period due to stringent regulations regarding the use of such chemicals and the shifting of end-use manufacturing base to the Asia-Pacific region.

This report estimates the metal cleaning chemicals market for 2015 and projects its expected market size till 2020. It also provides a detailed qualitative and quantitative analysis of the market. Various secondary sources such as encyclopedia, directories, and databases are used to identify and collect information that is useful for this extensive commercial study. The primary sources - experts from related industries and suppliers—have been interviewed to obtain and verify critical information as well as to assess the future prospects of the market.

The metal cleaning chemicals market is projected to reach USD 16.3 Billion by 2020, registering a CAGR of 4.9% between 2015 and 2020.

The global market is driven by the increased demand from various end-use industries such as industrial and automotive, among others. Asia-Pacific is estimated to register the highest growth on account of its growing economy and rapidly expanding manufacturing base.

The market is segmented by type, metal type, and region. On the basis of type, the market is classified into two key segments, namely, aqueous-based and solvent-based metal cleaning chemicals. The market for solvent-based metal cleaners is further divided into oxygenated, hydrocarbon, halogenated, and others. The aqueous-based segment accounted for the lion share of the overall market at 84% of total market, by volume, in 2014. The market for metal cleaning chemicals is mainly driven by the huge demand from the manufacturing industry. Metal cleaning chemicals are used in various end-use industries such as industrial, automotive, aerospace, residential, medical & healthcare equipment, and others. Metal cleaning chemicals are used in these end-users to clean and protect the surfaces from particulates and oil & grease marks. However, health issues and environmental regulations can be a major restraint for the metal cleaning chemicals market, particularly, for solvent-based metal cleaners. The growing market for green metal cleaners is expected to offer a major opportunity for growth of the market.

The Asia-Pacific region is projected to register the highest growth in the metal cleaning chemicals market between 2015 and 2020. The growing industrial and manufacturing industry base is the key driver of the market in the region. China was the leading regional market, accounting for 45% of the total Asia-Pacific market, by volume, in 2014. China is expected to continue its dominance of the market during the forecast period as the country is experiencing rapid expansion of the industrial sector. Other Asia-Pacific countries such as India, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan are also anticipated to witness steady growth during the forecast period. North America and Europe are projected to witness a moderate growth during the forecast period due to stringent regulations and shifting of end-user manufacturing base to the Asia-Pacific region. The shift in trend towards adoption of aqueous-based metal cleaners in the industry, particularly, in the North America and Europe is, however, expected to drive the market in the region.
