De-icing Fluids Market: Introduction

  • De-icing fluids are fluids that help in removing ice or snow from a surface. De-icing fluids help in lowing the freezing point of water. They generally contain salts, glycols, and alcohols. De-icing fluids are typically fluids based on ethylene glycol and propylene glycol, which contain water, corrosion inhibitors, wetting agents, and dyes.
  • Deicing fluids are sprayed on surfaces by using hoses or spray guns. Spraying is preferred over application of heat and certain mechanical methods, such as scrapping and pushing. Primarily, de-icing fluids are employed to aid in withdrawal of ice, snow, or frost layers from external surfaces of aircraft and minimize the freezing point of water.
  • Based on type, the global de-icing fluids market can be segmented into type I, type II, type III, and type IV. Type I fluids possess low-viscosity properties and these are thin fluids that offer short-term effects. Type II fluids contain polymeric thickening agents that provide long-term effects. Type III fluids have properties intermediate to those of type I and II fluids. Type IV fluids are dyed green in color and they offer a consistent layer of fluid on application.
  • Based on end-use, the global de-icing fluids market can be segmented into transportation, automotive, aviation, industrial, and others

Key Drivers and Restraints of Global De-icing Fluids Market

  • In cold areas worldwide, especially in winters, thousands of flights get cancelled or delayed, due to low temperature and icy weather conditions. De-icing fluids help in removing ice, snow, or frost layers from external surfaces of aircraft and in preventing further freezing of ice on critical surfaces of aircraft for a certain period of time. Thus, increasing demand for de-icing fluids from the aviation industry is anticipated to drive the global de-icing fluids market during the forecast period.
  • The cold areas worldwide are witnessing development of advanced and better technologies and rising demand for eco-friendly and recyclable de-icing materials
  • Several drawbacks of using de-icing fluids, such as rusting and degradation of applied surfaces, are expected to be major restraints of the global de-icing fluids market in the near future
  • Furthermore, availability of low-cost substitutes, such as mechanical methods of scrapping and heating, can act as a restraint of the global de-icing fluids market

Global De-icing Fluids Market, by End-use

  • Based on end-use, the global de-icing fluids market can be segmented into transportation, automotive, aviation, industrial, and others
  • The global aviation industry is expanding at a significant rate, owing to increasing aircraft fleet size and rising passenger traffic. In cold areas, ice or snow obstructs smooth operation of aircraft. De-icing fluids help in removal of ice or snow from surfaces. Thus, these fluids are primarily used in the aviation industry.
  • De-icing fluids are largely used in automobile cooling systems, as they prevent freezing of cooling fluids. This helps automobiles offer better performance and reduces chances of breakdown in cold areas.

North America to Dominate Global Market for De-icing Fluids

  • In terms of region, the global de-icing fluids market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa
  • North America is expected to dominate the global de-icing fluids market during the forecast period, owing to the growing aircraft fleet size and rising passenger traffic, especially in the U.S.
  • The de-icing fluids market in Europe is expected to expand at a rapid rate in the next few years, owing to rising awareness among people in the region
