Changing consumer preferences and strict regulations will bring a fundamental shift in metalworking fluids market. Stringent regulations intended to minimize the health and environmental risk associated with the use of metalworking fluids will bring a paradigm shift from the use of synthetic metalworking fluids towards the applications of bio-based metalworking fluids. Over the years, metalworking fluid technology has witnessed considerable advancements witnessing a wide range of applications in machining processes. Specific types of metalworking fluids are being deployed across various machining operations to enhance its efficiency or productivity.

The metalworking fluids are widely used for applications such as metal removal, protecting, treating, and forming. The metal protecting cutting fluid forms a thin film on the surface of the metal, thus protecting the metal from corrosion-forming particles thereby, increasing its use in fabrication and manufacturing industry. The global metalworking fluids industry size in protecting applications was worth USD 1.2 billion in 2015. The treating applications is anticipated to grow at over 2.5% CAGR over the period of 2015-2024, owing to its wide use in controlling temperatures across metal fabrication and automotive industries.
