Heat transfer fluid is that substance (gas or liquid) which can store heat energy to prevent over-heating of any thermal device by circulating through its mechanical parts and transfer the heat energy produced from one device to another. These fluids have a wide range of applications in the industries that operate in the extreme temperature ranges such as manufacturing processes, chemical industry, automotives, solar power plants, petroleum processing, etc.

The global market for heat transfer fluids in terms of revenue was estimated to be worth $1,684.0 million in 2011 and is expected to reach $2,557.2 million by 2017, growing at a CAGR of 7.4% from 2012 to 2017. Europe dominates the global heat transfer fluids market, accounting for 35.0% of the global heat transfer fluids demand in 2011. Asia-Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing market in the near future owing to the rapid advancement and increasing demand from key countries such as China and India. North American heat transfer fluids market is smaller as compared to Europe in terms of revenue and volume.

This market is driven by the high growth in the CSP market, strong performance advantage offered by heat transfer fluids and increasing performance standards in the industrial sectors. Europe is the largest market for heat transfer fluids, whereas Asia-Pacific market is expected to register best growth opportunities. China and India are expected be the fastest-growing countries in the global heat transfer fluids market as their strong economic growth continues and demand for energy grows.
