Global Metalworking Fluids Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 1080.00 Million in 2021, according to the Global Metalworking Fluids Market Report, by Application (Removal Fluids, Forming Fluids, Protecting Fluids, and Treating Fluids), and by Region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa), published by Coherent Market Insights.  

Global metalworking fluids market was valued at US$ 1080.00 Million in 2021. Metalworking fluids market is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 4.4% over the forecast period (2022–2030), to reach US$ 1593.95 Million by 2030. Metalworking fluids are used to reduce heat and friction and to remove metal particles in industrial machining and grinding operations. There are numerous formulations of metalworking fluids ranging from straight oils (such as petroleum oils) to water-based fluids, which include soluble oils and semisynthetic/synthetic fluids. Metalworking fluids may be complex mixtures of oils, emulsifiers, anti-weld agents, corrosion inhibitors, extreme pressure additives, buffers (alkaline reserve), biocides, and other additives. 

Manufacturing sector is expected to be most affected by coronavirus crisis. The crisis is expected to disrupt both demand as well as supply chains and capability of companies to deliver goods to market. The virus has struck the core global value chain regions including China, Europe and U.S. According to World Economic Forum, industrial output in China has fallen by 13.5% in first two months of 2020 compared with the previous year. The slowdown in manufacturing is expected to impact demand of metalworking fluids from this sector.
