Increasing adoption of lightweight materials in high performance applications, especially in the automotive industry is spurring demand for metalworking fluids. Manufacturing of complex geometrics with lightweight metals requires proper lubrication, which in turn is boosting sales of metalworking fluids.Increasing adoption of metalworking fluids for the production of key metal components in the transportation equipment and heavy machinery industries will continue augmenting market growth.

Growing preference for lightweight metals such as aluminum, copper, and zinc in production of complex components used in high performance applications is anticipated to boost sales of metalworking fluids over the forecast period.

Rapid urbanization and population growth are leading to a surge in demand for private transportation vehicle and increased spending on public transport. The automotive industry has been a key beneficiary of this trend, as automotive sales continued increasing in developing countries such as China, India, Saudi Arabia, and ASEAN nations.

Similar growth has been recorded in these markets for public transportation facilities such as metro trains, resulting in high demand for metalworking fluids in the automotive and transportation sectors.

However, various stringent regulations regarding the usage of harmful synthetic chemicals are restricting the market growth. To counter this issue, manufacturers are investing in research and development activities to develop eco-friendly lubrication solutions.

Emergence of bio-based fluids, and other multifunctional fluids to reduce incompatibility will continue providing tailwinds to metalworking fluids sales in the forthcoming years.
