Business Wire


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global Heat Transfer Fluids Market to 2016" report to their offering.

The Global Heat Transfer Fluids market to grow at a CAGR of 7.44 percent over the period 2012-2016.

Globally, more and more multinational corporations are striving to become greener and adopt environmentally sustainable business practices. Manufacturers are giving more weight to the issues related to the toxicity and life cycle impact of their products. HTF have been developed based on renewable raw materials such as bio-based propylene glycol, which can effectively replace petroleum-based HTF. For instance, KOST USA Inc. and Archer Daniels Midland Company have developed a BioChill line of HTF, which has helped them to reduce their carbon footprint. Similarly, DuPont Tate & Lyle BioProducts LLC has developed the Greenway line of bio-based HTF, manufactured by The Dehon Group from 100 percent bio-based glycol. Thus, the development of eco-friendly bio-based HTF is influencing the growth of the Global HTF market in a major way.

According to the report, one of the major drivers in this market is the increased utilization of HTF in CSP applications. The growth of the CSP Energy Generation sector is fuelled by the increasing demand for sustainable sources of energy, which, in turn, has boosted the growth of the Global HTF market.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in this market is the rising raw material costs. The market is highly influenced by the shortage and rise in price of raw materials, such as benzene and glycols.
