The antifreeze market for original equipment is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.18% from 2016 to 2021, to reach a market size of USD 885.1million by 2021. According to the Organization International des Constructeurs d'Automobiles (OICA), the global vehicle production in 2015 was ~92 million units and is projected to grow to ~125 million units by 2021, at a CAGR of 5.40% from 2016 to 2021.

This growth in vehicle production can be attributed to rising per capita income, increased preference for personal transport, and improved infrastructure. The growth of the automotive engine coolant market is directly linked to the rising vehicle production.

Thus, rising vehicle production is one of the key drivers for the increase in demand for engine coolant in the original equipment market. Growing demand for battery operated vehicles is acting as a key restraint for the antifreeze market, especially in countries such as Norway, the Netherlands, and China, where the government has implemented stringent emission regulations.

However, the impact of this growth is expected to be low for the next five years.


According to OICA, the production of passenger cars around the globe has grown from 68.6 million units in 2015 to 72.1 million units in 2016at a rate of 5.1%. The increased sales of passenger cars are due to the improved standard of living and rise in per capita income in various countries.

According to Trading Economics statistics, the U.S. GDP per capita increased from USD 50,727.8 in 2014 to USD 51,638.1 in 2015, which led to increased purchasing capabilities of consumers.

Thus, the sales and production of passenger cars are increasing and leading to increased demand for engine coolant and antifreeze.

Antifreeze base fluids are toxic in nature. This has compelled manufacturers to switch to less toxic alternatives.

glycols used for antifreeze are manufactured from crude oil filtration, which may lead to a higher demand for fossil fuels such as crude oil and can have a negative impact on the environment. Hence, bio-based options such as glycerin are getting recognized in the market for their environment-friendly nature.

This bio-based antifreeze is manufactured from materials such as corn, stover, and other oil bearing resources. Manufacturers are venturing into this market with products such as the Sunterra brand of DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products (U.S.), which is produced using a bio-based glycol named 1, 3-Propanediol (PDO).

This glycol is completely manufactured using renewable and bio-based materials and is suitable for passenger cars and other light and heavy duty vehicles.
