Consumption Analysis of Automotive Die Casting Lubricants from 2016 to 2020 Vs Market Outlook for 2021 to 2031

Over 2016 to 2020, use of automotive die casting lubricants increased at around 0.8% CAGR, with the U.S., Canada, Germany, and U.K. holding significant share in the global market.

Substantial growth in sales and production of automobiles has been witnessed worldwide due to notable growth in population and rise in disposable income. However drastic decline in demand for automotive die casting lubricants in 2020 due to the global pandemic impacted the historical period growth rate to a significant extent.

Moreover, due to rise in regulations on vehicle emissions to prevent damage to the environment from pollution and reduce health hazards from vehicle emissions, demand for fuel-efficient vehicles is increasing. To make vehicles fuel efficient proper combustion of fuel lightweight automotive components are used. To reduce the weight of automotive components. Lightweight metals such as aluminium, magnesium, zinc, and other non-ferrous metals that are capable of providing the same strength at less weight are used.

To produce complex geometric shapes using these metals, the die casting method is used. To obtain great dimensional accuracy and precise shapes in the die casting method, proper thermal management of the components is essential. Lubricants are thus used to manage the temperature of die during the process.

Moreover, looking at the current scenario, consumers are shifting toward eco-friendly products with rising awareness about environmental protection and health hazards.

Owing to these factors, demand for automotive die casting lubricants is anticipated to witness steady growth at a CAGR of over 4% during the forecast period of 2021-2031.
