Hydraulic Fluids Market, By Base Oil (Mineral Oil, Synthetic Oil, Semi-synthetic Oil, and Bio-based

Published Date: June 2019 | Report Code : MT2058726


The Global Hydraulic Fluids Market is projected to reach USD 29.35 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 3.6% during a forecast period. The significant growth of automotive as well as the construction industries is expected to fuel the growth of the hydraulic fluids market during the forecast period.

Hydraulic Fluids Market

Hydraulic Fluids Market

Hydraulic fluids or liquids are used in hydraulic engines as a medium of energy transfer. Hydraulic fluids are used in hydraulic systems as corrosion-resistant, sealant, and lubricating material. Customary hydraulic fluids have mineral oil/emulsion bases. They offer low compressibility and flexibility. Hence, synthetic hydraulic fluids such as polyalkylene glycol and polyalphaolefin are preferred in hydraulic systems. These fluids are expensive but they offer high flexibility and compression combined with very low volatility.

Construction and automotive industries are the major end-users of the hydraulic fluids market. They account for a combined share of, approximately, 52% of the global consumption of hydraulic fluids. Fire-resistant hydraulic fluids are being developed by companies. This will bolster the demand for hydraulic fluids market in sensitive industries such as food and aerospace. Owing to the toxicity of hydraulic fluids, the food industry is reluctant to use these fluids in food preparation. However, this will change since non-toxic, non-flammable fluids are being developed, which will increase the demand for hydraulic fluids market in the food industry.
