“Transmission fluids market is projected to register a CAGR of 4.1%”
The transmission fluids market is projected to reach USD 8.43 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 4.1% from 2016 to 2021. There is an increase in the demand for automobiles and heavy machinery for construction in the emerging Asia-Pacific region and Middle Eastern & African markets which is leading to the growth of the overall transmission fluid market. The market is expected to grow at a nominal rate as the automotive market in North America is mature, which is also a major factor restraining the growth of the transmission fluids market.

“CVT and DCT to be the fastest growing type of transmission fluids during the forecast period”
Transmission fluids help in the efficient operation of the transmission system of any vehicle by keeping its components lubricated and cool. The market for Continuously Variable Transmission Fluids (CVT) and Dual-Clutch Transmission Fluids (DCT) is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2016 to 2021, in terms of value. Increasing consumer awareness in choosing fuel-efficient transmission systems, and the inclination towards adopting the new technological changes is driving the market for the other types.

“Mineral base oil to be the largest oil type of transmission fluids market”
Mineral oil base transmission fluids constitute the major share in the global transmission fluids market. They are produced in large quantities because of their high demand in different end-use industries such as automotive, and off-road vehicles. The market for mineral base oils is driven by the demand from the Asia-Pacific region and the Middle East & Africa due to their low cost and easy availability.

“Automotive is projected to be the largest end-use industry for transmission fluids during the forecast period”
