Impact of EV Manufacturing on Metalworking Fluids: Opportunities and Challenges


Base Year: 2022
To be Published: Q4 2023
Regional Coverage: Global

Electric vehicles (EVs), a disruptive technology, will undoubtedly have a negative impact on the automotive lubricants market. They will also affect metalworking fluids (MWFs) due to a reduction in the number of components and changes in manufacturing processes compared to internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles.
This report aims at examining how the use of MWFs in automotive (cars and two-wheelers) manufacturing is changing with the growing production of EVs.

Scope

  • Size and segmentation for global MWFs demand by major fluid type and end-use industry
  • Size and segmentation for MWFs employed in automotive (car and two-wheelers) manufacturing by major fluid type
  • Identification of MWF-intensive auto-component manufacturing
  • Identification of metalworking processes affected by EV manufacturing
  • Future market for MWFs used in automotive (car and two-wheelers) manufacturing
  • Opportunities and challenges for MWF formulators and marketers
