Automotive Coolant Market: Global Industry Analysis and Forecast (2023-2029)

Automotive Coolant Market size was valued at USD 8.1 Bn. in 2021 and the total revenue is expected to grow at 5.1% of CAGR through 2022 to 2029, reaching USD 12.06 Bn.

Automotive Coolant Market Overview:

A coolant, also known as antifreeze, is a unique fluid that travels through engine to maintain the proper operating temperature range. It is typically coloured green, blue, or even pink and is manufactured from either ethylene glycol or propylene. Coolants’ main functions are to transport heat and guard against freezing or boiling-related engine damage. It's essential to prevent coolant from freezing or evaporating because heat can only be transported efficiently when there is a liquid in the system. The automotive coolant market was valued at USD 8.7 billion in 2021 and it is projected to grow at CAGR of 5.1% during the forecast period The main factors influencing the demand for coolant in the OMEs of the market include rising vehicle production, particularly in the SUV and light truck segments, and a recent trend toward growth in the trucks and buses category in nations like India. The number of operating vehicles and the number of kilometres driven annually is expected to raise demand for antifreeze in the aftermarket segment.

Automotive Coolant Market Dynamics:

Environment-friendly coolants

Ethylene glycol is a frequently utilized base fluid in coolants. Given its affordable production and refining expenses, it is a by-product of crude oil and is frequently used. Animals are drawn to the sweet taste and toxicity of ethylene glycol in nature. Numerous instances of animal poisoning are the outcome of this. These and other factors have forced the OMEs to look at bio-based coolants that can replace ethylene glycol while also helping to safeguard the environment and driving market growth.  

The demand for electric vehicles hampers the automotive coolant market

The automotive sector now needs to explore alternative technologies due to growing environmental concerns. The creation of battery electric automobiles is one such phase (BEVs). These cars run on batteries and a variety of management systems that not only boost performance but also completely eliminate pollution. Coolants are also not used in battery-powered electric vehicles because there is no need for an internal combustion engine these factors’ hampering the market growth

Coolants can be recycled

Recycling old antifreeze solutions is seen as a good substitute for dumping. Due to the toxicity of the ethylene glycol used as the basic fluid, used antifreeze poses a risk to both the environment and human health. Heavy metals like cadmium, lead, chromium and others are present in high concentrations in waste antifreeze, which is bad for the environment. Therefore, suppliers and OEMs face a challenge when it comes to recycling coolant and antifreeze.

Automotive Coolant Market Segment Analysis:

By Vehicle Type, the passenger car segment is expected to hold a significant share of the market by the end of the forecast period, owing to an increase in demand for utility vehicles in densely populated countries such as China, India, and Brazil. The share of the automotive coolant market is growing as automakers introduce innovative brands and products to provide clients with tailored coolant and lubricant solutions. Numerous international OEMs are making investments in the nation either through joint ventures with well-established companies or directly after FDI norms have been implemented in setting up their production unit or improving their sales and dealership networks around the nation. The passenger vehicle market is being driven by strong demand for e-class, crossovers, SUVs, and hatchbacks, which will likely have a positive impact on the automotive coolant market. The market for passenger vehicles is being driven by consumers' rising preference for private transportation and their increasing purchasing power. Automotive Coolant MarketBy Product, The automotive coolant market share based on product is segmented into Ethylene Glycol, Propylene Glycol, and Glycerine. Glycerine is expected to account significant share in the automotive market. Glycerin and 1, 3-propanediol (PDO) have recently attracted a lot of attention in the automotive coolant aftermarket as fluids for the coolant's base. Glycerin, a by-product of biodiesel is also being studied for use in coolants, if it worked, it may be a competitor to ethylene glycol in future. Since it has a high viscosity index, its application is uncertain because it might need to be diluted first. Propylene glycol has an isomer called PDO. Given that it comes from natural sources, propylene glycol is probably going to face some price competition from it. PDO is more environmentally friendly, has stronger anti-corrosive capabilities, and has enhanced thermal stability, making it a great choice for trucks and off-road vehicles. Additionally, studies on nano-fluids based on ethylene glycol and including titanium dioxide, copper oxide, and aluminum oxide are being conducted. Nano-fluids, which are purported to improve the thermo physical characteristics of the coolant, have enormous promise in a variety of applications, including the cooling of computers, vehicles, electronics, and transformers. The frontal area of the radiators would be reduced by 10% with the use of nano-fluids, allowing for better sized and positioned radiators. This would result in significant emissions reductions and fuel savings of up to 5%. Automotive Coolant MarketBy Technology Type, the market share of automotive coolants is anticipated to increase significantly throughout the forecast period thanks to technological developments in the industry. Over the forecast period, the market share is growing due to the growing use of Organic Acid Technology (OAT), which is based on neutralized organic azoles and acids. Additionally, these substances considerably lower the likelihood of corrosion and material degradation. The OAT also extends the life of engines and protects the aluminum from high temperatures, growing the market for the product.

Automotive Coolant MarketAutomotive Coolant Market Regional Insights:

Asia Pacific is expected to account significant share of the automotive coolant market. Thanks to the higher volume of vehicles produced in important nations like India, China, and Japan as well as cheaper manufacturing and labour costs in the region. India is anticipated to develop significantly during the forecast period as a result of the increased demand for automobiles. The market in Asia-Pacific is also expected to grow during the projected period due to the region's accessibility to cheap labour and raw materials, as well as the rising number of local producers. India is currently the second-largest commercial vehicle developer and the sixth-largest passenger car producer in the world. Infrastructure upgrades have replaced rapid industrialization, which is anticipated to be advantageous for the development of the local market. Demand for light passenger cars and a heavy-duty truck has increased due to the growth of small and medium-sized businesses. Indian PSU oil companies like IOCL, HPCL, BPCL, and others, as well as private companies like RIL, are consistently growing their ability to produce crude oil. Since ethylene glycol is a by-product of crude oil production, rising crude oil output and refining capability may enhance the availability of ethylene glycol in India, hence boosting domestic coolant manufacturing there. The country's rising need for coolants may be greatly aided by the increased domestic production of coolants by coolant manufacturers. Over the following several years, this is anticipated to fuel the region's automotive coolant industry.
