Cutting Fluid is a type of lubricant or coolant which is used as a metalworking fluid in several industrial applications such as stamping, milling turning and drilling. Cutting Fluids are specifically designed to prevent wear and tear these fluids increase the durability of the tools involved. Cutting fluids primarily regulate temperature by cooling and also acts as a lubricant that lubricate the work piece interface.

Role of cutting fluids is very critical in achieving higher productivity levels and efficiencies as number of variables affect the final finish of any component.

Cutting fluids are essential in the machining process as excess heat produced during the machining process makes the machine quite prone to wear and tear. Thus, cutting fluids play a vital role in many of the industrial applications. Cutting fluids are designed to increase the productivity of machines and the metal working process.

These fluids find applications in several industries including the automobile industry. Owing to above mentioned factors, the demand for cutting fluids is anticipated to witness significant growth thus contributing to the global cutting fluids market during the forecast period.

Cutting Fluid Market: Dynamics

Up gradation to newer technologies in various sectors such as metal engineering, automotive industry, energy sector have gathered higher demand for cutting fluids. Manufacturers are more focused on reducing cost and increasing productivity with the use of high quality cutting oils. These factors coupled with growth in automobile industry, subsequently result in growth of global cutting fluid market.

With the product evolution, the cutting fluids market has witnessed several advancements in formulation to reduce VOC levels, facilitate anti-contaminant and anti-microbial properties keeping in mind about improved surface adhesion, heat dissipation and viscosity levels. This endeavor has resulted in transition from use of conventional synthetic based cutting fluids towards bio-based and semi-synthetic cutting fluids.

Cutting fluids are made out of base oils which are extracted from crude oil. The volatility in crude oil prices can directly impact the production of cutting fluids. Other than that, health hazards to humans as well as disposal of cutting fluids in environment remain area of concern. These are some of the factors which may impact the growth of cutting fluid market in near future.
