Impact of EV Manufacturing on Metalworking Fluids: Opportunities and Challenges

Base Year: 2022
To be published Q2, 2022
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 with internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles.


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