Global metalworking fluids market forecast will be mainly driven by robust demand across aerospace, defense, marine, and automotive applications. Rapid industrialization and urbanization, particularly in emerging economies, and the subsequent growth of the construction sector is anticipated to fuel the demand for metalworking activities in the near future.

The global aerospace & defense sector application segment is projected to grow at a healthy 4.1% CAGR up to 2025. This can be attributed to the recovery of global economies and stable commodity prices which has consequently increased the demand for air travel and fuel military budgets. Lucrative growth in commercial aircraft sector will undeniably complement MWF industry outlook over the coming years.

Metalworking fluids can be segmented into synthetic fluids, semi-synthetic fluids, soluble oil, and neat oil based on products. Soluble oil segment held a dominant revenue share in global MWF industry during 2017 followed by semi-synthetic fluids.

In recent years, the demand for synthetic fluids in aerospace applications has been rising steadily. This can be linked with advantages such as non-flammability at higher temperatures and excellent resistance to corrosion and rust. Synthetic fluids are anticipated to record the highest CAGR over 2018-2025.

Many countries including China, India, Japan, and Saudi Arabia are increasingly spending on defense on account of increased security concerns and threats. Expansion of the defense sector, a major consumer of metalworking fluids, is expected to augment the market share significantly. Global Market Insights, Inc., predicts that global metalworking fluids market size will be worth US$15 billion by 2025.

On the basis of applications, removal fluids accounted for one of the largest revenue shares in 2017 followed by forming fluids. Forming fluids are expected to experience strong demand from automobile and steel sectors and will register a prominent CAGR during the analysis period. Presence of several multinational giants as well as large number of medium-size enterprises will complement MWF market size.

Asia Pacific dominated the global MWF industry size in 2017 on account of robust growth of the automobile and manufacturing sector. The region is expected to lead the industry up to 2025 followed by Europe. Rapid industrialization and urbanization in Middle East and Africa region along with rising disposable incomes of consumers will bolster the regional outlook. In addition, presence of a comparatively lenient regulatory framework in the region will stimulate the demand for metalworking fluids.
