  • Country: Global
An antifreeze is an additive to coolant which lowers the freezing point of a water-based liquid and increases its boiling point. By using an antifreeze mixture, freezing-point depression for cold environments and also boiling-point elevation for higher coolant temperature can be achieved, which provides extra protection against freezing of the coolant or overheating of the engine. Several other corrosion inhibitors are added to the antifreeze or coolant, to improve performance and efficiency.

Antifreeze is developed to make-up for the shortcomings of water as a coolant.A coolantis a fluid that flows through a device to prevent it from over-heating. The engine coolant is basically the combination of water, antifreeze, and other additives blended together. The antifreeze prevents a rigid enclosure from bursting due to expansion when water freezes.

Market Dynamics

The primary factor driving the antifreeze market is increasing vehicle sales and production across the world. These include vehicles from different segments such as pick-up trucks, Sports Utility Vehicles (SUV), and Multi-Purpose Vehicles (MPV). The growing automotive sector is fuelling the demand for antifreeze in both OEM and aftermarket segments.The passenger cars is expected to dominate the antifreeze market.An increase in sales results in increase in vehicle parc of passenger as well as increased miles travelled per year per country.

Rise in the average age of vehicles in operation, advanced technology, use of environment-friendly coolants, Organic Acid Technology (OAT) and the increasing requirement for protection against freezing and effective heat dissipation will possibly further drive this market.In addition, factors including favourable government initiatives, rising disposable income,growing stringent norms to enhance fuel economy, changing lifestyle and rapid urbanization will further propel market growth.


Some of the restraining factors for this market include the stringent regulatory framework regarding coolant disposal & recycling, high rate of degradation,corrosive properties, toxicity and high cost of storage & handling.
