Category : Consumer Goods and Food and Beverages | Delivery Format : PDF | Status: Forthcoming | Report ID : ARC435


Functional fluids comprise a wide range of other liquids and oils which are deployed as transmission fluids, lubricants, heat transfer fluids, hydraulic fluids and metalworking fluids during several industrial processes and procedures such as grinding, machining, stamping, forging and milling among others. Moreover, various functional fluids are used in different end user industries such as transportation, automotive, solar power and chemical. The most recent development in the global functional fluids market is the increasing prominence of metal removal fluids since they have less or no mineral oil and thus delivers benefits such as lubrication and excellent visibility during various metal working operations and processes. With the increasing demand for new technology based functional fluids made up of synthetic  material, the primary fabricated and metal segments, the rising popularity of such products is anticipated to immensely benefit the overall growth of global functional fluids market over the forecast period.

Market Dynamics

The increasing requirement for high performance products as well as increasing number of stringent environmental norms and regulations are some of the key factors fueling the demand for functional fluids, which in turn, is projected to accelerate the growth of global functional fluids market over the forecast period. In addition, increasing growth of functional fluids market is also expected to be fueled by increasing availability of good quality base stocks as a consequence of increasing number of investments in newer base stock capacities across the globe. Owing to the rapidly expanding supply of functional fluids, the original equipment manufacturers are taking important steps towards global specifications and are increasingly adopting to advocate the employment of high performance synthetic products such as functional fluids. Furthermore, functional fluids have emerged as one of the most ideal choices due to their capability to decrease overall maintenance time and turnaround costs by increasing the drain intervals.

Market Classification and Overview

The global functional fluids market can be segmented on the basis of type, application and region. On the basis of type, the global functional fluids market can be segmented into hydraulic & transmission fluid, process oil, heat transfer fluid, metal working fluid and others. By application, the global functional fluids market can be segmented into construction, industrial, transportation and others.
