The metalworking fluids market was estimated to be worth USD 8.30 Billion in 2014 and is projected to reach USD 9.74 Billion, by 2020, at a CAGR of 3.2% between 2015 and 2020. In this report, 2014 is considered as the base year and forecast period is between 2015 and 2020. The metalworking fluids market has been segmented on the basis of product type, end-use industry, and region. Removal fluid is expected to play a key role in fuelling the growth of the overall market owing to its use as a coolant across the manufacturing industry. The removal fluids are used for maintaining optimum temperature and the removal of unwanted metal chips during the grinding, drilling, and other processes.

In this report, market sizes have been derived using both bottom-up and top-down approaches. First, the market size for each product type (removal fluids, forming fluids, protecting fluids, and treating fluids) in various regions (North America, APAC, Europe, South America, and Middle East & Africa) and countries have been estimated through secondary and primary research. The overall metalworking fluids market sizes for various regions and countries have been calculated by adding these individual market sizes. Regional-level metalworking fluids market sizes have been further broken down on the basis application using percentage split gathered during the research. For future growth (CAGRs) trends of the industrial lubricant market, metalworking fluids penetration, application industries – automotive, machinery, primary ferrous and non-ferrous , among others, have been analyzed. The findings of this study were verified through primary research by conducting extensive interviews with key officials such as CEOs, VPs, directors, and executives. The breakdown of profiles of primary interviewees is depicted in the below figure:

The metalworking fluids market size is expected to reach USD 9.74 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 3.2%, between 2015 and 2020. Metalworking fluids have good viscosity to temperature behavior and are stable at high and low temperatures. Moreover, metalworking fluids also have good chemical resistance. The market is expected to be driven by the rapidly growing automotive industries.

Metalworking fluids, on the basis of product type, have been categorized into removal fluids, protecting fluids, forming fluids, and treating fluids. Removal fluid has dominance in the global market with demand arising from automotive and metal fabrication industries. Increasing automotive production in developing countries will increase the use of gear oils, thereby increasing the demand for industrial hydraulic and metalworking fluids. Asia-Pacific is the fastest-growing market for metalworking fluids due to the rising demand for efficient metalworking fluids from automotive manufacturers and OEMs.

The growth of the metalworking fluids is mainly driven by the growth in automotive industry in the Asia-pacific region. Factors, such as higher production rate, less downtime, and enhanced tool life are expected to drive the market during the forecast period.

There is a demand for multipurpose fluid, which can aid in protecting machining tools and at the same time, result in higher production. Also, the OEMs are using different metals such as titanium, gallium, and palladium for different manufacturing processes. This will generate the demand for metalworking fluids that can be used with multiple metals. The aerospace industry is generating demand for high-performance metalworking fluids, which can be used in super high-pressure fluid systems for efficient functioning.

Metalworking Fluids Market

The metalworking fluids face a lot of challenges from environmental protection agencies, which are actively formulating regulations on product usage. The companies are continuously focusing on research and development (R&D) to prepare environmentally friendly formulations for metalworking fluids, so that there is no threat to the environment due to the use of metalworking fluids in various industries.

The use of metal parts in automobiles has reduced, which is a restraining factor in the growth of metalworking fluids. The near dry lubrication also known as Minimum Quantity Lubrication (MQL) is another factor restraining the growth of metalworking fluids.

The metalworking fluids market is highly fragmented with a large number of local players in the market along with the global players. The global companies are continuously expanding their operations by entering into agreements with domestic distributors for a stronger distribution network. The global key manufactures include ExxonMobil Corporation (U.S.), Houghton International (U.S.), Fuchs Petrolub SE (Germany), BP Plc. (U.K.), Total S.A. (France), Chevron Corporation (U.S.), Lubrizol Corporation (U.S.), and Idemitsu Kosan Co. Ltd. (Japan).
