Use of cutting fluids in machining turbine casings involves the removal of large quantities of difficult-to-manufacture materials using rough milling processes. Thus, the growing application of metalworking fluids in precision machining applications is leading to increasing consumption of metalworking fluids.
End users in North America, Europe and Japan are shifting away from the use of straight oils & emulsified oils and towards synthetic and semi-synthetic oils as semi-synthetic oils have relatively low oil content, contain no mineral oils and are transparent when mixed with water. They can be used in a wide range applications, i.e. from light duty applications (drilling, surface grinding and double disk grinding, etc.) to heavy duty applications (drilling, threading, creep feed, etc.). Thus, owing to the relatively superior properties of synthetic and semi-synthetic oils, end users are adopting these oils at a relatively fast pace, which in turn, is leading to growth of metalworking fluids market.
Different countries regulate the storage and disposal of waste from machining processes and normally, regulations concerning them are stringent. Historically, regulations regarding the safe disposal of metalworking fluids have been constantly revised to cater to several different formulations and blends introduced by the manufacturers of metalworking fluids. Users of metalworking fluids have to invest in expensive effluent treatment facilities to meet environmental and waste treatment regulations. Thus, due to these initial high investments associated with the disposal of metalworking fluids, the demand for metalworking fluids is expected to decrease during the forecast period.
Major players identified in the metalworking fluids market are focusing on increasing their product portfolio and are entering into acquisitions to enhance their operational efficiency. Also, strategic collaborations and joint ventures witnessed among leading market players are likely to improve the sales and distribution network. Due to these factors, the growth of the global Metalworking Fluids market is expected to gain speedy momentum during the forecast period.
