The global functional fluids market exhibited moderate growth during 2015-2020. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to grow at a CAGR of around 4% during 2021-2026. Functional fluids refer to various liquids that are used for insulation and lubrication in hydraulic and braking systems, turbines, compressors, engines, refrigeration systems, transmissions and guides. Some of the most common types of functional fluids include engine oils, transmission and hydraulic fluids, metalworking and heat transfer fluids. They are primarily used for minimizing friction and wear and tear of the working components, dissipating the heat generated, preventing corrosion and sealing components. They also exhibit low compressibility ratio, offer protection to the machine against oxidization and can perform efficiently under high temperatures, mechanical stress and pressures. Owing to this, they find extensive applications across the automotive, metals & mining, transportation, construction, and aerospace industries.
Significant growth in the construction and automotive industries is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. In line with this, the widespread adoption of automotive functional fluids, such as antifreeze and engine internal cleaner, that aid in maintaining the optimal performance of the vehicle components, is also contributing to the market growth. Furthermore, the rising demand for high-performance process oils in the industrial metal fabrication sector is providing a boost to the market growth. Functional fluids provide smooth surfaces to the processing unit and improve the performance of the equipment used for manufacturing polymers, fibers and cables. Additionally, the development of bio-based oil is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Owing to the implementation of stringent government regulations, manufacturers are developing environment-friendly functional fluids that are manufactured using vegetable oils. Other factors, such as the increasing adoption of these fluids for packaging, printing and manufacturing specialty paper, along with rapid industrialization across the globe, are projected to drive the market further.
