Functional Fluids: A Global Strategic Business Report

Functional fluids are used in many applications and play a vital role in a wide range of industries. Worldwide functional fluids market is expected to grow at a compounded annual rate of approximately 3.8%, as stated in a recent report published by Global Industry Analysts, Inc. The North America and Europe represent the leading regional markets, collectively capturing over 53% of the total sales. However, fastest growth is likely to emanate from Asia-Pacific and Latin American regional markets, as manufacturers are seeking opportunities in these relatively untapped markets due to the saturation across few end-use segments in the North America and Europe. Global process oils market represents the leading product category, accounting for 34% of the sales.

Heat transfer fluids revenues in the US are forecast to be worth nearly US$307 million in 2010. While price continues to be a key factor in determining fluid purchase decisions, innovative and premium products are finding favor amongst consumers. With tightening industrial regulations, manufacturers seek eco-friendly alternatives for functional fluids. Growth in vehicular population, aging vehicle population, number of miles driven per annum, and economic fluctuations determine the extent of functional fluids utilization in the automotive segment.

Major players in the marketplace include Akzo Nobel, Aral Aktiengesellschaft, BASF, BP PLC, Chem-Ecol, Cimcool, ExxonMobil, Permatex, Prestone, Radiator Specialty, and Yushiro Chemical Industry
