Global Magneto-Rheological (MR) Fluid Market by Carrier Fluid (Silicon Oil, Mineral Oil, Paraffin Oil, Hydraulic Oil, Synthetic Oil, and Others), By Application (Automotive, Electrical & Electronics, Aerospace & Defense, Medical & Prosthetics, and Others) - Global Industry Share, Growth, Competitive Analysis and Forecast Period 2020-2026

The global MR fluid market is projected to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period. MR fluid is a smart fluid used as a carrier fluid, which increases its viscosity in the presence of a magnetic field. The MR fluid consists of micro and nano-sized magnetized iron particles suspended in a base fluid. The fluid can be used to design devices for different applications such as in the automotive sector, it is an extensively used braking and clutching system. Major advantages of MR fluid include easy controllability, direct interface with electronics, easy construction of devices, and power efficiency and quick response. MR fluid has varied applications in the automotive sector. It can be used in shock absorbers, dampers, and brakes in a vehicle. Major automotive companies such as General Motors, Chevrolet, Porsche, Acura, Audi have used MR fluid in their models. Moreover, the MR fluid has increasingly being used in civil infrastructure and household appliances.

Besides, there are factors that are hampering the growth of the MR fluid market such as the limited availability of commercial products and the high cost of high-quality MR fluid products. Lack of consumer awareness regarding the benefits of MR fluids, which includes its longevity, can be considered as another major threat acting in the growth of the market. However, the MR fluid is finding application in several military applications such as damper of military vehicles, bulletproof jackets, which act as an opportunity for the growth of the market in the near future. Several research projects are being carried out to find the effectiveness of MR fluid as a protective element against earthquakes in the building. Furthermore, the high investment made by the key players and research institutes in the R&D of MR fluid is further regarded as a major factor in the growth of the global MR fluid market in the future.

Segmental Outlook

The global MR Fluid market is segmented on the basis of carrier fluid and application. By carrier fluid, the market is segmented into silicone oil, mineral oil, paraffin oil, hydraulic oil, synthetic oil, and others. On the basis of application, the market is segmented into automotive, electrical & electronics, aerospace & defense, medical & prosthetics, and others.

The automotive segment is expected to have a major share in the MR fluid market. The MR fluid that is widely used in the automotive sector in different applications includes braking and clutching systems. Moreover, they are used in shock absorbers, dampers, and brakes in a vehicle. Automotive giants such as General Motors, Chevrolet, Porsche, Acura, Audi are using MR fluid in their car models. Some of the car models which are equipped with an MR fluid suspension system are Audi TT, Audi R8, Buick Lucerne, Ferrari 599GTB, and Holden HSV Commodor. The military segment is expected to exhibit significant market growth owing to several military applications such as damper of military vehicles, and bulletproof jackets.

Regional Outlooks

Geographically, MR fluid market has been divided into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World (RoW). North America and Europe are expected to have a significant market share of the MR fluid. It is due to the high cost associated with the MR fluid, the result of which it is mostly used in high-end car models. Price sensitive market of Asia-Pacific includes China and India is the untapped reason is significant growth is expected during the forecast period in this region.
