Metal cleaners play a significant role in addressing the full range of cleaning requirements for metals such as steel, aluminum, brass, aerospace metals, and many more. Aqueous-based metal cleaners are majorly cleaning components added to water to work in combination with heat, agitation, and time to extract contaminants from industrial parts. These cleaners are considered environmentally friendly, as they are water-based and typically contain biodegradable ingredients to reduce the environmental impact of cleaning activities. Government regulations and policies aimed at reducing harmful chemicals in cleaning products also encourage the use of aqueous-based metal cleaners. However, the high availability of acid and solvent-based metal cleaners and increased investments required for producing cleaners impede the market development. Market players are constantly focused on introducing cost-effective bio-based aqueous metal cleaners and partnerships with end-users to enhance product commercialization. Market vendors concentrate on bringing new products to their flagship portfolio by providing improved quality, functionality, and sustainable cleaners.
