Driving Efficiency and Durability: Metalworking Fluids in the Thriving Automotive Industry

Dublin, Oct. 10, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Metalworking Fluids Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The global metalworking fluids market witnessed substantial growth, achieving a market size of US$ 11.0 Billion in 2022. The market is on an upward trajectory and is expected to reach US$ 13.7 Billion by 2028, exhibiting an impressive Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 4% during the period from 2023 to 2028.

Metalworking fluids (MWF) are a diverse range of liquids and oils designed to lubricate and cool metal components during machining, grinding, and milling processes.

These fluids reduce friction, dissipate heat between cutting tools and workpieces, and prevent smoking or burning, while also inhibiting corrosion. They find extensive applications in mechanical workshops for cutting and shaping metals, contributing to extended tool life, reduced wear and tear, and enhanced surface finish and texture in welding processes.

Key Drivers and Trends

The thriving automotive industry is a primary driver of the metalworking fluids market. Metals play a crucial role in providing structural strength and durability to vehicles, necessitating the use of metalworking fluids for various processes, including metal removal, chemical treatment, and protection.

Moreover, increased consumer spending on vehicle modifications further fuels market growth. A shift in preference from traditional metal alloys to lightweight and durable materials like stainless steel, aluminum, and titanium contributes to the market's expansion.

Rising research and development (R&D) activities by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) aimed at producing energy-efficient metal components also bolster the demand for metalworking fluids in the coming years.
