Non-Flammable Hydraulic Fluids Market

Non-Flammable Hydraulic Fluids Market: Global Industry Analysis 2013 - 2017 and Opportunity Assessment; 2018 - 2028

Market Overview

Global Non-Flammable Hydraulic Fluids Market: Introduction

Damage to hydraulic equipment is generally caused due to fire, which is often caused due to the pinhole leaks or breaks in hydraulic hoses. A hydraulic fire moves quickly and also burns intensely and is not feasible to control it with a fire extinguisher. Therefore to safeguard of assets with reduced losses resulting from fire break out is very important for an industrial enterprise. The unexpected down time, equipment damage, and uninsured costs related with hazardous materials and clean up can reduces profits. An optimal way for the reduction of these losses from occurring is just to replace the equipment's flammable Fluids with non-flammable hydraulic Fluids.

Mineral Fluids are highly flammable and often are a serious source of fire hazards in high-temperature environments and applications close to open flames or heated metal parts. The risk is further increased by the rapid and aggressive Ignition rate of these Fluids. Today mineral oil dangers present industries with very real major risks including disruption in operation, plant shut down, and threats to worker safety.


Increasing Safety Concerns for Humans and Machineries

Rising concern about safety of men and machines in factories and manufacturing facilities is driving the demand for fire-resistant hydraulic fluids. These fluids help in safeguarding the equipment and avoiding breakdown of due to overheating of fluids and equipment. Thus, the non-flammable properties of the fluids has been a critical factor for the growth of the overall market in the forecast period.

Significant demand from Aviation Industry

Another area of application where fire resistant hydraulic fluids are in high demand is the aviation and aerospace industry. Aircrafts are complex systems and are highly dependent on hydraulic systems for vital functions such as maneuvering and landing. Owing to safety concerns, almost every material and fluid used in an aircraft is therefore fire-resistant, if not fireproof. Besides aviation, the other fields where fire hazard possibilities are critical are mining, especially underground mining; offshore marine operations; and firefighting. All these segments, for their safety quotient, are giving rise to the demand for fire-resistant hydraulic fluids.

Global Non-Flammable Hydraulic Fluids Market: Regional Outlook

North America and Europe are expected to be the dominating markets for non-flammable hydraulic fluids, led by safety concerns in many industries such as steel production, mining, marine, and chemical exiting in these regions. Asia Pacific is anticipated to be another prominent market for the non-flammable hydraulic fluids, owing to the presence of huge number of steel mills, slag management, foundries, and machining plants in this region. Developed nations such as the U.S., Germany, France, Japan, and the U.K. also possess a significant demand for non-flammable hydraulic fluids. Furthermore, demand for non-flammable hydraulic fluids in industries such as marine, manufacturing, mining, chemical, and aviation has been growing at a rapid pace in developing countries such as China, Brazil, India, South Africa, and those in Southeast Asia.
