Global Metal Forming Fluids Market: Overview

Metal forming fluids provide lubrication and cooling to metal bending, stretching and shaping operations. Lubrication is a very important requirement in the metal forming process as it is expected to reduce friction between formed metal piece and metal casting die. This is achieved through the action of metal forming fluids, which are used as a barrier to minimize contact between the die and the work piece.

Global Metal Forming Fluids Market: Key Trends and Drivers

  • Growth of heavy machinery industry in the developing economies of Asia Pacific and Central and South America is anticipated to drive the market for metalworking fluids. This industry includes construction equipment, cement, textile, metallurgical and mining machinery, oil field equipment, and material handling equipment. These machines have a high demand for synthetic and semi-synthetic-based fluids which offer better machining performance, corrosion resistance, and increased tool life.


  • Construction volumes are set to witness massive increase over the next few years – 85% by 2030. This will dive intense growth in the global metal forming fluids market over the forecast period. China and India in Asia Pacific will region will lay claim to a sizeable share of the total growth in construction market. Along with United States of America, these two countries are set o hold market worth of 57%.
  • However, the penetration of plastic components in various industries, notably the automobile industry has increased considerably over the past few years owing to their low weight, robust performance, high resistance to corrosion, and durability. Plastic components have largely replaced metal parts in various sectors. This has driven plastic use in military and defense aircraft and carriers, which is expected to have a restraining impact on the growth of global Metal Forming Fluids.
