Hydraulic Fluids Market -Demand for Various types of Hydraulic systems is Increasing Constantly 2025

Hydraulic oils, hydraulic liquids, or hydraulic fluids is a major part of hydraulic systems, through which power is conveyed in hydraulic equipment. Hydraulic liquids are primarily used in conveying kinetic and potential energy in a hydraulic system. Hydraulic liquids generally provide a flow of volume in hydrostatic motors and pumps. Hydraulic fluids also help in decreasing the wear and tear of parts involved in friction in the piston assembly. Hydraulic fluids also protect the internal systems from corrosion and erosion caused by external environments. Functions of hydraulic fluids have changed by a great magnitude in the last few years. Hydraulic systems are designed to function optimally during the operations at high temperatures, high pressures, and different complex circumstances. Ordinary hydraulic fluids are primarily made of mineral oils and water, which offer very less compressibility and flexibility of usage.

Demand for various types of hydraulic systems is increasing constantly, as the modern industry requires high speed and efficiency at higher operating pressures and temperatures. Hydraulic fluids are developed to perform tasks such as lubrication, energy transmission, and removal of heat from parts of the machinery. Selection of an optimum hydraulic fluid highly depends on basic properties and the technicality of grade of hydraulic fluid with respect to the hydraulic machinery. An ideal hydraulic fluid should be selected on the basis of the following properties: hydrolytic stability, thermal stability, low tendency to cavitate, low chemical corrosiveness, high anti-wear characteristics, constant viscosity, long life, total water rejection regardless of temperature, and low cost. Major functions served by hydraulic fluids include efficient transmission of power and protection of intrinsic hydraulic components from wear and tear. A majority of hydraulic fluids are used in large machines for various purposes.

Increasing demand for rapid construction, growing infrastructure, and increased use of heavy machinery in civil engineering projects are factors projected to drive the global market for hydraulic fluids during the forecast period. Most of the hydraulic fluids are based on hydrocarbons and mineral oil, which are considered toxic and hazardous for the environment. Hydraulic fluids need to comply with several environmental and regulatory obligations for their disposal. Manufacturers provide special guidelines and specifications for safe handling and storage of hydraulic fluids. Splashed or spilt hydraulic fluids need to be properly absorbed with specified absorbents so as to avoid the contamination of groundwater and sewerage systems. High toxicity, stringent environmental regulations, and growing popularity of organic hydraulic fluids are the major restraints for the hydraulic fluids market.

The market for hydraulic fluids in Asia Pacific (APAC) is likely to expand at a significant rate during the forecast period, due to high demand for hydraulic fluids and their increased consumption in heavy construction equipment used for construction and civil engineering projects. Risen demand for hydraulic fluids in APAC is also attributable to rapid infrastructure development, rapid industrialization, growth of the economy, and high capital investments by major industrial players in the region. APAC is anticipated to witness high growth in the consumption of hydraulic fluids. The market in the country is estimated to expand at a remarkable CAGR during the forecast period. In terms of consumption and production of hydraulic fluids, North America follows APAC. The market for hydraulic fluids in North America is anticipated to expand significantly during the forecast period, led by rising demand from sectors such as infrastructure and heavy engineering in the region. Growth of the hydraulic fluids market in Europe is likely to remain consistent during the forecast period.

Volvo expands excavator lineup with 20-ton EC200E

Volvo Construction Equipment has introduced a new excavator model aimed at contractors and rental houses looking for a machine larger than the 16-ton EC160E, but less expensive than the 22-ton EC220E.

The new EC200E is a 20-ton model that the company says is primarily designed for those in need of a light- to medium-duty excavator.

“This machine’s size and price point make it a great new option for rental yards and for owners of smaller fleets looking to move up to take on bigger projects, particularly those in the building segment,” says Sung Sook Kim, product manager excavators at Volvo Construction Equipment.

One benefit in particular to the EC200E’s size, Volvo says, is the ability to transport the machine on a trailer without additional permits.

Powered by a 154-horsepower Volvo D4 engine, the EC200E has a lifting capacity of 16,138 pounds. For greater fuel efficiency, the engine features auto idling, auto engine shutdown and an ECO mode. You can read more specs in the sidebar.

The machine is fitted with X1 hydraulic piping and has an attachment management system that allows for pre-setting hydraulic flow and pressure for up to 20 attachments, Volvo says. It also supports quick couplers.

Hydraulics of the Future

In spite of concerted efforts to improve its image in recent decades, hydraulics is still seen as a dinosaur by many users. As a result, it is not the first choice among young recruits. Graduates tend to be drawn to start-up environments with their digital business ideas and, in the figurative sense, to the object of desire—a golden unicorn.

Internationally, the unicorn symbolizes innovation and creativity—ideas with a wow factor that make a lot of money. Regardless of how the outside world perceives hydraulics, the global economic importance of hydraulics is undisputed, with sales amounting to many tens of billions of dollars. Paradoxically, the economic importance of fluid power technology still contrasts sharply with the way it is perceived by users, the public, and the scientific community.

How can hydraulics technology transition its image to the new world? The answer is simple; the dinosaur must adapt by integrating new technologies, especially electronic control and electromechanical power transmission. By doing so, hydraulics will metamorphose into a novel, high-tech experience for users.

In specific terms, this means retaining hydraulics’ strengths and combining them with the opportunities and benefits found in the technical “IT consumer world.” Users will then perceive “hidden” hydraulics as a compact, finished functional module—simple, intuitive, connected, and quickly installed. Regardless of this vision of the future, hydraulics must maintain its position against electromechanical drives. The technological shift is already highly advanced in many sectors.

Here, we need to defend our territory. Unlike hydraulics, easier connectivity and simpler IT connections have long been integral to the DNA of electromechanical solutions. But how can we ensure the future viability of industrial hydraulics over the next decade, and what must we do to make it more competitive? Aim for the golden unicorn!

The mistaken perception of hydraulics as dinosaur technology should disappear as Industry 4.0 transforms these impressions into more of a golden unicorn.

The Industrial Environment
Industrial hydraulics is not immune to the developments taking place in a constantly changing market environment. However, hip new technology topics are not the sole factors shaping the scene in the years ahead. Several familiar trends will continue to be essential to future growth.

Energy efficiency. When considering major trends, invariably the environment and the scarcity of resources play an important role. They require more energy-efficient drive systems. In Europe for example, energy-related regulations apply on a component level (e.g., the IE3 standard for electric motors). On top of this, many standards and codes are in place for machines—efficiency labels for mass-produced machines, for example.

The importance of energy efficiency is growing beyond just industrialized nations. Energy is still far too cheap in many regions of the world, and new, innovative, approaches will only emerge from supply and price pressures. Given its specific advantages (high power density, large forces), hydraulics is predestined for powerful machines. This applies especially to pressure supply stations where energy-saving drive solutions are particularly beneficial.

Outlook. The ever-present issue of energy efficiency has sparked a steady rise in the use of speed-controlled drive systems. Highly efficient servo motors are increasingly replacing standard asynchronous motors. Technically scalable solutions are already available on the market.

Watch the ‘Jaws of Life’ In Action Save an Injured Motorist From a Wreck

You’ve probably seen the “Jaws of Life” in action while driving past a roadside accident. If not, you’ve likely heard about the famous tool in one way or another that’s typically used to rip open all sorts of mangled metal. But if you’ve ever wondered how it works, it’s a fairly simple machine despite its intimidating looks.

The “Jaws of Life” is used indeterminately for pretty much any type of heavy-duty tool that acts like a pair of scissors, cutter, spreader, or ram-device aimed at slicing and dicing through most automotive metals. In reality, the term “Jaws of Life” is actually trademarked by Hurst—a company known for its manufacturing of heavy-duty hydraulic equipment—but as mentioned, it’s applied colloquially to any sort of similar device or tool used specifically in this practice.

If you’ve ever wondered how crews set up the tool for use on the scene, or how they work, the video below of the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District rescuing an injured driver trapped in a Foxbody Ford Mustang provides a solid glimpse. At first, it looks like a daunting piece of machinery that’s capable of some pretty gnarly things, but in reality, it’s not that harrowing to operate.

Machine Automatically Wraps Silage Bales Using Hydraulic Power

Wrapping silage bales in the field preserves feed quality, prevents crop damage or loss, and simplifies handling. Until now, bales have been loaded into and unloaded from bale wrapping machines manually. The Kuhn SW 4014 bale wrapper combines automated electronic controls with hydraulic power to eliminate manual handling, speeding field operations for increased capacity and ensuring consistent quality. The SW 4014 is designed and manufactured by Kuhn North America, Brodhead, Wis.

Hydraulic cylinders retract the width of the SW 4014 to only 98 in., making it road-ready to move from one field to another.

For road transport, hydraulic cylinders retract the machine’s sliding frame that contains the wrapping arms to an overall width of only 8 ft 2in. (2.5 m). Upon arriving at the field, the operator simply pushes a button, and the wrapper’s width extends to its operational width of 13 ft. (4 m), providing greater stability and enabling drive-through operation over rows of hay bales. The machine’s satellite receiver also goes to the zero position, and the loading arms move to their pre-load position ready to begin the process, which includes loading, wrapping and unloading bales.

At its working width of 13 ft, the SW 4014 moves with stability through the field, loading, wrapping, and unloading bales while the tractor stays on the move.

How Certified Clean Oil Can Restore Hydraulic Pressure Efficiency

When we talk to our customers about the importance of oil cleanliness in improving equipment performance and extending its life, we sometimes hear this response: “If my equipment is already damaged, what is the point of putting clean oil in it?”

The answer may surprise you. In a previous post, we looked at the impact of oil cleanliness on hydraulic system pressure efficiency. Specifically, we shared test results showing that a typical hydraulic fluid that is not certified to the equipment manufacturer’s ISO cleanliness standards can have a jarring effect on system pressure and overall system performance. Using a certified clean hydraulic fluid, however, can result in smoother pressure and efficient performance.

In the course of our testing, we took apart a high-pressure Eaton vane pump to examine the relative wear caused by typical contaminated hydraulic fluids versus a Chevron Rando HD ISOCLEAN Certified hydraulic fluid. We then put back together a pump that had experienced significant wear from a typical hydraulic fluid over a period of 150 hours, and refilled it with a Chevron Rando HD ISOCLEAN Certified hydraulic fluid.

The results were fairly dramatic. With the typical hydraulic fluid, the pressure control valve had exhibited instability, as shown by a somewhat shaky pressure control curve. With the Chevron Rando HD ISOCLEAN Certified hydraulic fluid, the exact same valve exhibits a very smooth pressure control curve.

Klein introduces SmartSpray hydraulic pump system

Klein Products, a mobile liquid distributing equipment manufacturer, recently developed SmartSpray, which it says is a first-of-its-kind, highly efficient hydraulic-powered water pump system.

The system is operated with SmartControl, a Klein innovation that uses the latest digital and controller area network (CAN) technology to provide an operator interface that is touch-pad or hard-key controlled, safe to operate, ergonomic, and easy to install and troubleshoot, Klein claimed.

“We always strive to achieve the highest levels of quality as we continue to develop new innovations, and SmartSpray and SmartControl perfectly exemplify that commitment,” said Barry McManus, president of Klein Products. “Together, these innovations create a water truck pump system that is safer, more efficient and far more functional than any other solution on the market today.”

SmartSpray is designed to allow an operator to control water volume and discharge pressure independent of truck engine RPM or ground speed. Instead of being manipulated by the breaks or accelerator, water discharge is adjusted using the SmartControl interface, improving safety at the job site, reducing power consumption from the truck engine, facilitating distribution of the precise amount of water required and eliminating wasteful overwatering, Klein said. SmartSpray functionality allows smaller-capacity trucks to perform like larger capacity vehicles.

Tackling the power and acceleration challenges of EEDI

Turbocharger systems and strategies are being used to both reduce the installed power on ships and to overcome the acceleration challenges that reduced power requirements can bring

As the energy efficiency challenges on shipping escalate, more sophisticated measures for reducing emissions are coming into play. The turbocharger has a role on both improving engine efficiency and in recovering energy potentially wasted through heat.

Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding first developed its turbo hydraulic system (THS) to recover waste heat from turbochargers in 2008. The first engine with THS was delivered in 2014 and the company has since delivered the system for 19 sets of engines.

While many waste heat recovery systems aim to return recovered heat energy in the form of electrical power generation, the idea behind THS is to reduce fuel consumption by assisting engine rotation through the use of hydraulic technology. The main circuit consists of hydraulic pumps connected to the shaft end of the turbocharger by a reduction gear. The high-pressure oil pressurised by the pumps is delivered to a hydraulic motor directly connected to the engine crank shaft. Having driven the motor, the hydraulic oil is then returned to the pumps to be pressurised again.

According to tests on Mitsui’s test engine and at shop trial on commercial engines, THS delivers a fuel oil consumption cut of up to 3% without increasing NOx emissions.
