According to a new report by IMARC Group, the global functional fluids market grew at a CAGR of around 5% during 2014-2019. Looking forward, the market is expected to continue its moderate growth during the next five years.
Functional fluids are used as insulating and lubricating agents in hydraulic and braking systems, turbines, compressors, engines, refrigeration systems, transmission units, etc. These fluids majorly include engine oils, hydraulic fluids, metalworking lubricants, and heat transfer fluids. They aid in reducing friction, minimizing wear and tear of the components, dissipating the heat produced, and preventing corrosion and sealing. Based on the low compressibility ratio, functional fluids prevent oxidization in machinery and are highly efficient under high temperature, mechanical stress, and pressure. As a result, they are widely used across several end-use sectors, such as automotive, metal, mining, transportation, construction, aerospace, etc.
The growing automotive industry has augmented the adoption of automotive functional fluids, such as antifreeze and engine internal cleaner, which enhance the vehicle performance. Moreover, the increasing utilization of high-performance process oils in the industrial metal fabrication industry is also inflating the market growth. Functional fluids offer smooth surfaces to the working unit and enhance the equipment performance in manufacturing polymers, fibers, and cables. Additionally, the introduction of stringent government regulations, along with the emergence of bio-based and eco-friendly functional fluids, is further driving the product demand. Furthermore, the rising adoption of these fluids for manufacturing and printing specialty paper is anticipated to propel the functional fluids market.
