Global Metal Cleaning Chemicals Market to 2025 by Cleaner Type (Aqueous & Solvent), Metal Type (Steel, Aluminum), Ingredient (Surfactant, Chelating Agent, Solvent) -

The "Metal Cleaning Chemicals Market by Cleaner Type (Aqueous & Solvent), by Metal Type (Steel, Aluminum), by Ingredient (Surfactant, Chelating Agent, Solvent), by end-use industry (Manufacturing, Automotive & Aerospace) - Global Forecast to 2025" report has been added to's offering.

The growth is anticipated primarily due to development in Asia Pacific post COVID-19 recovery, coupled with the rise in the Industrial sector. The factors restraining the growth of this market are stringent government regulations for usage of certain solvents based cleaners.

Surfactant was the largest ingredient of the metal cleaning chemical market.

Surfactant was the largest segment in the global metal cleaning chemical market in 2019. The inherent cleaning properties along with high usage in different application is expected to drive the demand for surfactant in metal cleaning chemical market. They are the most important ingredients of aqueous metal cleaning chemicals. Surfactants are mainly used as detergents, wetting agents, and emulsifiers. There are two types of surfactants, ionic and non-ionic. Ionic surfactants can be further grouped into negatively charged anionic, positively charged cationic, and amphoteric that carry both negative and positive functions.

Aqueous cleaner to be the largest cleaner segment in the global metal cleaning chemical market.

Aqueous cleaners was the largest segment in the global metal cleaning chemical market, by cleaner type in 2019. Increased awareness about environmental regulations has prompted many companies to move away from solvents- to aqueous-based metal cleaning without direct pressure from regulators. Moreover, companies following sustainable solutions are adopting the aqueous based cleaners.

Manufacturing was the largest end-use industry in the global metal cleaning chemical market.

Metal cleaning chemicals are used in the manufacturing industry to clean various equipment during manufacturing operations. The growing manufacturing industry in China and India are major consumers in this segment. The market in the manufacturing sector is drive by the expansion of this industry in China and India. The manufacturing industry in developed countries, such as the US and Germany, is experiencing steady growth because of the slow growth of the economy. Thus, the metal cleaning chemicals market in developed countries is expected to witness moderate growth.

APAC is expected to be the largest market during the forecast period, in terms of both volume and value.

The market in the region is also projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The high economic growth in developing countries and increasing disposable incomes have made APAC an attractive market for metal cleaning chemicals. The tremendous growth of industrial production, increased trade, and the rise in the demand for vehicles are primarily responsible for the high consumption of metal cleaning chemicals in the region. China, Japan, and India are the major markets for metal cleaning chemicals in APAC.
