Global Metalworking Fluids Market to Reach US$ 15.4 Billion by 2032, Catalyzed by Expanding Automotive Industry

March 19, 2021 | Chemical & Materials

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Metalworking Fluids Market Report by Product Type (Removal Fluids, Forming Fluids, Protection Fluids, Treating Fluids), Source (Mineral, Synthetic, Bio-Based), End Use (Transportation Equipment, Machinery, Primary Metals, Fabricated Metal Products, Metal Cans, and Others), Fluid Type (Neat Cutting Oils, Water Cutting Oils, Corrosion Preventive Oils, and Others), Industry (Construction, Electrical and Power, Agriculture, Automobile, Aerospace, and Others), and Region 2024-2032,” the global metalworking fluids market size reached US$ 11.4 Billion in 2023. Metalworking fluids (MWFs) comprise a wide range of oils and other liquids utilized in the functioning of metal pieces of machinery during industrial operations. They reduce friction and heat and prevent burning and smoking, which is generated between cutting tools and workpieces. They assist in extending the tool life, improving the performance and quality of the workpiece, minimizing the chances of wear and tear and delivering a superior surface finish for the welding process. Consequently, MWFs are extensively used around the world in mechanical workshops for cutting and shaping metals.

Global Metalworking Fluids Market Trends:

Significant growth in the automotive sector on account of the growing global population and inflating disposable incomes represents one of the key factors catalyzing the demand for MWFs across the globe. MWFs are utilized in metal removal, chemical protection and treatment, and enhancing the overall service life of the tool. Apart from this, a considerable shift from conventional metal alloys to stainless steel, titanium, and aluminum are driving the sales of MWFs further. Additionally, original equipment manufacturers (OEM) are conducting research and development (R&D) activities to generate higher volumes of metal components and ensure energy efficiency in equipment. This, in confluence with the growing consumer expenditure on vehicle modifications, is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 15.4 Billion by 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 3.3% during the forecast period (2024-2032).
