[207 Pages Report] The hydraulic fluid market size is projected to reach USD 9.0 billion by 2025 from USD 7.7 billion in 2020, at a CAGR of 3.1%. The growth of the market is driven by the industrial growth in Asia Pacific and the Middle East & Africa, coupled with the rise in process automation in most of the industries.

Hydraulic Fluid Market

“OEM to be faster-growing point of sale segment of the global hydraulic fluid market during the forecast period.”

OEM is expected to be the faster-growing segment from 2020 to 2025. Hydraulic fluid manufacturers are manufacturing new products with better properties and extended life. Hence, more the life of the initial hydraulic fluid, lesser the drain interval in the complete life cycle of an equipment.

“Synthetic oil to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period.”

On the basis of base oil, the global hydraulic fluid market is classified into mineral oil, synthetic oil, and bio-based oil. Mineral oil is the largest segment of the hydraulic fluid market. This is majorly attributed to its easy availability and low cost. However, the synthetic oil segment is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period due to its advanced properties.

“Construction is projected to be the largest end-use industry during the forecast period.”

On the basis of end-use industry, the market is segmented into construction, metal & mining, agriculture, oil & gas, transportation, cement production, and food processing. The demand for hydraulic fluid is high in the construction industry due to the rising construction activities, especially in the residential sector in China and the rising infrastructural developments in India.

Hydraulic Fluid Market

APAC accounts for largest share of the global hydraulic fluid market during the forecast period.

APAC is expected to account for the largest market share in global hydraulic fluid during the forecast period. The increasing population in the region, accompanied by increasing construction spending in the developing markets of China, India, and Indonesia, is projected to make this region an ideal destination for the hydraulic fluid market.

Key Market Players
