The unexpected shifts in the global markets because of the sudden outbreak of the COVID-19 virus have brought many major and minor tremors to industries of all sizes including the Engineered Fluids (Fluorinated Fluids) Market.
It was estimated prior to this unanticipated outbreak that the Engineered Fluids (Fluorinated Fluids) Market was expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.4% during the forecast period. However, the gradual slowing down of industries will undoubtedly impose limits on the previously estimated growth rate.
Engineered fluids are the fluorinated fluids that are versatile and non-flammable. They are used in numerous critical industrial applications. They possess excellent dielectric properties and have a wide range of boiling points along with excellent material compatibility and thermal stability.
Engineered fluids have gained popularity on account of their excellent properties such as low temperature, non-toxicity, stability, and non-flammability that are required to enhance the performance of heavy machines at manufacturing plants. Growing demand and necessity for thermal management in different industries such as automotive, aerospace, electronics & semiconductor, oil & gas, and power generation industries further fuel the demand for engineered fluids.
This report studies the market covering a period of 12 years of trend and forecast. The report provides detailed insights into the market dynamics to enable informed business decision making and growth strategy formulation based on the opportunities present in the market.
Based on the product type, the market is segmented as lubricants, solvents, and heat transfer fluids. The lubricants segment held the largest share of the market in 2019, and is expected to remain dominant during the forecast period. Engineered lubricants or fluorinated lubricants offer a stable performance over a long time and provide low oxidation degradation. They are fire-resistant in nature and are used for a wide range of temperatures. Fluorinated lubricants are designed to perform effectively between a temperature ranges of -90°C to 300°C. These properties are driving the growth of the market.
Based on the end-use industry type, the engineered fluids (fluorinated fluids) market is segmented as electronics & semiconductor, aerospace, chemical processing, automotive, oil & gas, power generation, and others. The oil & gas segment dominates the market, as in extreme conditions fluorinated fluids make it easier to clean spills and help in extending the life of the machinery.
In terms of regions, Asia-Pacific is estimated to be the largest market for engineered fluids (fluorinated fluids) during the forecast period, with China, Japan, and India being the major countries with lucrative growth opportunities. The growth of the market is driven by rapid industrialization as witnessed in the developing economies of the region and low production costs have prompted the giant players to establish their presence in the region. The growing automotive sector in the region is also contributing to the growth of the region’s market.
