Heat Transfer Fluid(HTF) Market size was evaluated at more than 480 kilo tons for 2015 and is predicted to register CAGR of greater than 6% during forecast timeframe. Increasing production of oil & gas in gulf countries can fuel demand for synthetic lubricants in HTF form in future. These fluid system play a key part in oil & gas process and also covers natural gas or crude oil processing, refining and transfer.
Heat transfer fluids are used in heating facility and restoration of glycols to eradicate water from natural gas generated in offshore platforms. Global CSP(concentrated solar power) deployment capacity was evaluated at greater than 3300 megawatts for 2014. Expansion in CSP sector owing to technological breakthroughs in molten salt fluid technology commercialization, thermal storage system and temperate climate condition adaptability is the main aspect driving heat transfer fluid (HTF) industry expansion.
Enhancing CSP plant efficacy by offering high heat storage abilities will increase energy generating capacity of plant. This is a key factor fuelling the demand and growth of the industry. Canada and U.S. heat transfer fluid(HTF) market are projected to witness substantial development owing to fast growth in current CSP projects and many upcoming facilities due to growing regional investment.
Bio-based fluids growth and technological breakthroughs along with increase in bio-diesel utility are the key factors driving the growth of the heat transfer fluid(HTF) market globally. But recyclability, biodegradability and aqueous toxicity are few of the factors inhibiting industry growth. Negative impact on ecology due to fluid formation from petrochemicals and mineral oils has resulted in strict legislations passed by EPA(Environmental Protection Agency) to regulate product use. This has hindered the growth and demand of heat transfer fluid industry.
