The demand for steel is increasing in many applications such as automotive, construction, mechanical equipment, transportation, household appliances and electrical appliances. This tremendous growth in the metal industry is driving flame retardant lubricants market. The European and North American market is mainly based on do-it-yourself consumers who are willing to buy a lubricant brand of their choice. E-commerce has amplified this trend and helped businesses reach more audiences.
Fire resistant fluids are suitable for use in the steel industry, underground mining, metallurgy and foundries. Therefore, the increased use of flame-retardant fluids in the above industries is expected to boost demand in the coming years. With the replacement of water-based fluids in most hydraulic components and systems, it has become increasingly necessary to use flame retardant lubricants. Flame retardant hydraulic fluids are used in industries where hydraulic lines are exposed to very high pressures. The machinery industry is a large consumer of Fire Resistant Lubricants. Various metalworking equipment and other heavy equipment require flame retardant lubricants to keep the machines running smoothly.
However, HFDU and HFDR-type Fire Resistant Lubricants are more expensive than HFC-type Fire Resistant Lubricants as they have many upgraded functions. Thus, the high prices of HFDU and HFDR-type Fire Resistant Lubricants are restraining market growth. Also, lack of proper training and product awareness among machinery fire resistant lubrication professionals is considered a major challenge in the fire-resistant lubricants market. North America, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region primarily drive the market for flame-retardant lubricants in the metalworking industry. The Middle East is experiencing strong growth in the metals sector, driven by increasing purchasing power and demand for affordable housing.
Asia Pacific Fire Resistant Lubricants market is expected to witness a noteworthy development with a significant growth rate over the analysis period. Notable industry participants like TotalEnergies SE (France), Quaker Houghton (U.S.), Shell plc (U.K.), Exxon Mobil Corporation (U.S.), are anticipated to accelerate market growth in the area.
