The heat transfer fluid industry is evolving to meet the changing needs and preferences of end-use industries. Previously, the primary function of heat transfer fluids was to transfer heat from one system to another. However, heat transfer fluids are now used in energy storage applications and mechanical systems thanks to technological advances and R&D.

The heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) and power generation industries also use heat transfer fluids, as the demand for environmentally friendly products in these industries is increasing. Increasing environmental problems and global warming are increasing the demand for renewable energy. Heat transfer fluids are used in many renewable energy applications, such as CSP systems, which transport heat from collectors to generators to convert the heat into electricity. They are also used in solar water heaters to transport heat from solar collectors to heat exchangers and from heat exchangers to heat storage tanks. Hence, the increased use of heat transfer fluids in renewable energy applications would propel the growth of the global heat transfer fluids market.

key ideas

  • Industrialization and government mandated sustainable practices have boosted the use of heat transfer fluids in various sectors. The demand for heat transfer fluids is increasing globally due to an increase in oil and natural gas production.
  • In addition, high demand for drugs during the COVID-19 pandemic has spurred the growth of pharmaceutical and chemical industries, resulting in high demand for heat transfer fluids in these sectors.
  • With the global focus on the impact of chemicals on the environment and corporate sustainability goals, users of heat transfer fluids are looking for alternatives to emptying and disposing of used fluids through combustion or landfill.
  • In 2021, the mineral oil market accounted for the largest share of the global heat transfer fluid market. This is mainly due to the low cost and wide availability.
  • The oil and gas industry is the major end user of heat transfer fluids due to the wide range of upstream and downstream applications.
  • APAC is the leading market for heat transfer fluids due to macroeconomic factors, followed by North America and Europe.
  • The competitive scenario in the global heat transfer fluids market is currently intensifying. Ever-changing commodity prices negatively affect sellers.
