COVID-19 Analysis:

According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), due to the outbreak of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the global economy is expected to shrink by 3.0% in 2020. Many countries are under strict lockdown, which has forced several sectors to shut down their operations. This has halted manufacturing activities and reduced the demand for HTFs. 

According to the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), the Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises (MSME) sector across the developing economies, such as India, has been worst affected due to the COVID-19 outbreak and the lockdown imposed thereafter. This is expected to decline the demand for heat transfer fluids. In addition, in the second half of 2020, some countries have started to lift restrictions and gradually start business operations in various sectors. Even if the lockdown is being lifted, it is expected to be challenging for the manufacturing sector to get back to normal working conditions.

According to BASF SE, the global chemical production (excluding pharmaceuticals) is expected to grow by 1.2% in 2020, much slower than in 2019 due to the COVID-19 outbreak. A slight decline is expected to be witnessed in the advanced economies (2020: –0.8%, 2019: –0.9%) and growth below the prior-year level in the emerging markets (2020: +2.4%, 2019: +3.5%). In addition, China, the world’s largest chemical market, is expected to witness lower growth rate (2020: +3.0%, 2019: +4.7%). This is attributed to weaker final demand and production stoppages in customer industries, thereby having a significant negative impact on the chemical industry growth in China. Furthermore, in the European Union, chemical production is expected to decline during the forecast period due to the sharp drop in chemical production in the second half of 2019 as production levels at the year-end were below the annual average. In the U.S., chemical production is also expected to decline due to slowdown of the growth of customer industries such as automotive, energy & resources, construction, consumer goods, electronics, and health & nutrition. However, slight recovery in the growth of the agricultural sector and stabilization in the construction industry are expected to fuel the demand for chemicals. In Japan, the growth of the chemical market is expected to decline amid a weak domestic economy and the slowing regional environment. Therefore, these factors are expected to decline the demand for heat transfer fluids from the chemical processing industry of the developed economies.

In the oil & gas industry, heat transfer fluids are used in offshore platforms and refineries for heating facilities and regenerating glycols to remove water from the natural gas produced and to heat reboilers & columns for the distillation of oil and oil-based products. According to the bp Statistical Review of World Energy 2020, in 2019, the global production of crude oil and condensate was 83,182.0 thousand of barrels per day compared to 83,764 thousands of barrels per day in 2018, thereby registering a growth rate of 1.0%. In addition, in 2019, the global production of natural gas was 3989.3 billion cubic meters compared to 3857.5 billion cubic meters in 2018, thereby registering a growth rate of 2.4%. However, in 2020, due to the pandemic, the production of crude oil and natural gas has been slow, owing to the downfall in consumption of oil & gas and related products. Therefore, attributed to this factor, the demand for heat transfer fluids across the oil & processing industry has declined, which is expected to affect the growth of the market in near future.

In the automotive industry, heat transfer fluids are used as a heat-dissipating coolant fluid in the radiator systems used in automotive engines. The automotive industry has been severely affected amid lockdown imposed due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Automotive manufacturers have halted their production activities due to disrupted supply chain of automotive components and fall in demand for passenger vehicles across the globe. The decline in production of passenger vehicles and downfall in numbers of newly registered vehicles are anticipated to decrease the demand for HTFs and affect the growth of the market during the forecast period.

In concentrated solar power (CSP) and solar thermal storage, heat transfer fluids are used to collect heat energy and transport it to a power station for thermal storage as a renewable energy technology. However, people are advised to stay and work from home to prevent the transmission of coronavirus. Therefore, the demand for power has surged significantly, owing to governments of various countries across the globe not only relaying on the conventional energy sources but also investing heavily on setting up of new CSP plants to meet the growing energy demand. Furthermore, the demand for HTFs is anticipated to surge during the forecast period.

In the HVAC and refrigeration industry, HTFs are used as coolant. However, large-scale projects in hotels, resorts, office buildings, restaurants, shopping malls, and entertainment facilities have been slowed down due to the pandemic. As a result, sales of commercial air conditioners, such as packaged air conditioners and variable refrigerant flow (VRF) air conditioners, have been declined. Therefore, this has declined the demand for HTFs from the HVAC and refrigeration industry, and is expected to negatively impact the market growth in near future.
