Fire Resistant Hydraulic Fluid Market - Overview
Fire resistant hydraulic fluid is a type of hydraulic fluid with high fire resistant property and high combustion temperature vis-à-vis mineral oils. Certain applications such as die casting or hydraulic presses which are generally performed near an ignition source for petroleum-based hydraulic fluids such as open flames or hot surfaces can lead to a potential disaster. In order to avoid such situations, petroleum-based hydraulic fluids are replaced with fire resistant hydraulic fluids due to their inherently high fire resistant property. Several factors are considered while selecting a fire resistant hydraulic fluid. These include cost economics, overall system performance, performance characteristics, and stability of the fluid.
Increase in concerns about worker safety and rise in awareness about industrial fires are expected to drive the fire resistant hydraulic fluid market. These fluids can minimize costly and deadly industrial fire accidents, which are usually caused by mineral oils catching fire from an ignition source. Rapid industrialization and rise in demand for these fluids in the aviation industry are also key drivers of the fire resistant hydraulic fluid market. Increase in industrialization, especially in developing countries, is projected to boost the fire resistant hydraulic fluid market owing to the rise in demand for these fluids in the metal processing industry. Growth in the aviation industry is anticipated to propel the demand for these fluids during the forecast period. However, higher prices of fire resistant hydraulic fluids is likely to hamper the market.
