September 08, 2023 | Chemical & Materials

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Metal Cleaning Chemicals Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028,” the global metal cleaning chemicals market size reached US$ 14.7 Billion in 2022. Metal cleaning chemicals are substances specifically formulated to clean and remove dirt, grime, rust, oxidation, and other contaminants from metal surfaces. They are available in various forms, such as liquids, powders, gels, or sprays. They contain agents like acids, alkalis, solvents, detergents, and surfactants that help break down and dissolve the unwanted materials on the metal.

Global Metal Cleaning Chemicals Market Trends:

Metal cleaning chemicals are used in the automotive industry to clean and degrease automotive components, such as engines, transmissions, and chassis parts. This, along with the increasing sales of luxury and passenger vehicles on account of rapid urbanization and inflating income levels, represents one of the major factors augmenting the market growth around the world. Moreover, the rising use of metal cleaning chemicals in manufacturing processes to remove machining oils, cutting fluids, and debris from metal parts before assembly or further processing is contributing to the market growth. In addition, the growing adoption of metal cleaning chemicals in energy and power generation to remove deposits and contaminants from heat exchangers, boilers, and turbines in power plants is influencing the market positively. Apart from this, metal cleaning chemicals find application in marine and offshore industries that help remove marine growth, corrosion, and debris from ship hulls, propellers, and offshore structures. This, along with the increasing number of offshore and onshore exploratory activities for conventional and non-conventional energy resources, is strengthening the growth of the market. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 19.0 Billion by 2028, expanding at a CAGR of 4.20% during 2023-2028.
