Metal cleaning chemicals are those chemicals which are used to wash away the extraneous inorganic and organic materials from the surface of metals. Metal cleaning chemicals are also used to remove unwanted substances such as grease, oil, corrosion oxides, particulates and other impurities in order to prevent damage and maintain overall efficiency of the performance. Use of metal cleaning chemicals protects metals from rusting and corrosion caused by corroding substrates, lubricating oil and hard water which are deposited over the surface of the metals. Metal cleaning chemicals helps in removing fouling caused due to organic materials such as microbes, algae, animal fats, denatured protein residues and hydrocarbons among others as well as inorganic materials such as hydroxides, carbonates, sulfides, oxides, silicates, sulfates and phosphates among others. Metal cleaning chemicals are usually employed to clean the equipment and heavy machineries which are widely used in various industries such as automotive, manufacturing, transportation and aerospace among others. Broad varieties of cleaning chemicals are used in metal cleaning process and depend upon the nature of concerned metals.
Heavy equipment and machinery which are widely used in transportation and manufacturing industries require basic regular maintenance in order to sustain the efficiency of performance. Hence, owing to a substantial growth in automotive, aerospace and manufacturing industries, the demand for metal cleaning chemicals is significantly increased. Major growth in the aforementioned end use industry verticals, especially in Asia-Pacific region is anticipated to accelerate and boost the growth of global metal cleaning chemicals market in the next foreseeable years. However, stringent environmental norms and regulations in developed economies regarding the use of nontoxic chemicals is projected to hinder the growth of metal cleaning chemicals market in the near future. Hence, rising emergence of environmentally sustainable and bio-based chemicals is other key element anticipated to bolster the demand for metal cleaning chemicals over the forecast period. The demand for metal cleaning chemicals is relatively high owing to a surge in demand from industrial and automotive sectors. The increasing growth in manufacturing activities especially in India, China, Japan and Indonesia is another key aspect anticipated to be a major boost to the growth of global metal cleaning chemicals market.
