Global Quenching Oil Additive: Market Introduction
Quenching is a process of rapid cooling of material (mostly metal) from the high temperature. The primary function of quenching oil is to control heat transfer during the metal or steel manufacturing process. Quenching oil additive is utilized for formulating quenching and heat transfer oils. Quenching oil additive is a formulated compound with non-staining, is odorless, and having lubricity properties. Quenching oil additive increases the quenching rates to gain maximum hardness against dynamic temperature changes and is mainly used to minimize cracking and distortions. The notable properties of quenching oil additive have superior heat transfer characteristics, effective oxidative performance, relatively higher thermal and oxidation stability, effective corrosion inhibition, and among others. Quenching oil additive is widely utilized in the steel or metallic manufacturing, metal fabricated products and also used in other industrial operations including automotive, food & beverages, mining, and others.
Global Quenching Oil Additive: Market Dynamics
Quenching oil has numerous end-use applications in almost all manufacturing sectors such as automotive, food processing, and processing plants, and others. The sustained growth in this kind of end-use industries is projected to propel the global quenching oil additive market by the end of the forecast period. Another pivotal end use industry where use of quenching oil additive is of significant value is in core mining operations. There has been a huge demand for steel products in domestic as well as industrial sectors coupled with a healthy growth rate of mining industry anticipated to fuel the global quenching oil additive market.
Additionally, the increasing demand for high-speed quenching oil to obtain the heat resistance to adhere the surface of working piece in order to reduce the sludge and increases the rate of quenching is projected to drive the quenching oil additive demand. Furthermore, the increased efforts to develop more reliable bearings is one of the factor intensifying the competition among the industry participants of global quenching oil additive market. On the flip side, quenching oil additive requires relatively higher maintenance cost owing to which end users. The variations in the cost of quenching oil additive raw materials is another factor which can act as a restraining factor in manufacturing and sales of quenching oil additives.
Key strategic developments among the end-use players including steel manufacturing, mining, etc. to expand their business which is expected to generate the demand for raw materials including quenching oil additive. For instance, in FY 2016, Mobil Industries – a Canadian firm introduced its new product - Fenso™ 90, 150, is a high speed quench oil having superior properties to fulfill the increased demand from end-use industries. This kind of organic growth across the competition landscape act as a key trend for global quenching oil additive market
