ATF to be the largest transmission fluid type during the forecast period

ATF constitutes the major share of the overall transmission fluids market in terms of value. These are specialized fluids having lower temperature fluidity and higher frictional properties than engine oils or gear oils. ATF performs various functions in the transmission system, including lubrication, clutch application, cooling, and providing a link between the transmission and engine through a hydraulic coupling or torque converter. Due to the versatile nature, ATF is largely being used in the automobile industry and is expected to constitute a major share of the transmission fluids market from 2016 to 2021.

Semi-synthetic base oil to register the highest CAGR in the transmission fluids market from 2016 to 2021

The transmission fluids market is segmented into different base oil categories, namely, mineral, synthetic, and semi-synthetic. The semi-synthetic base oil segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR in the transmission fluids market from 2016 to 2021. The demand for semi-synthetic base oil is gaining momentum due to its added advantages over conventional mineral based transmission fluids. They are cheaper than purely synthetic base transmission fluids, and offer better drain intervals than mineral oil base transmission fluids.
