Based on composition, the automotive engine degreaser market can be segmented into water-based and solvent-based. Both these degreasers can be employed on greasy engines. Degreasers are biodegradable and environmentally safe; however, when they dissolve the grease on an engine, the mixture of grease and degreasing solution is considered as hazardous waste. Thus, it needs special environmental handling.

Solvent-based or oil-based automotive engine degreasers are typically flammable and toxic. They can cause pollution with their disposal in soil or groundwater in even small amounts. Many oil-based degreasers readily evaporate and contribute to smog or ground level ozone. As compared to solvent-based degreasers, water-based degreasers are safer, as they are less toxic. Furthermore, they can be broken down in sewage treatment facilities. Nevertheless, solvent-based degreasers are preferred due to their superior performance and ability to cut through heavy grease buildup better than most water-based products.

The market for automotive engine degreaser is majorly dependent on the global automobile industry. Regular vehicle check-up and its maintenance is likely to boost the demand for automotive engine degreaser. Well-established OEMs are driving the automotive engine degreaser market. Demand for automotive engine degreaser is likely to be higher in Asia Pacific as compared to that in other regions. However, the market in Europe and North America is considered mature. The primary impact on the market for automotive engine degreasers is expected to be from existing automobile fleet rather than the new sales in the automobile industry. Countries such as the U.S., Germany, the U.K., China, Japan, and India are projected to exhibit higher consumption as compared to that in other countries.

Key players operating in the automotive engine degreaser market include WD-40 Company, Zep Inc., Radiator Specialty Company, 3D Products, Penray, Royal Purple, and Ravensberger Schmierstoffvertrieb GmbH.
