It is the general consensus that the future of mobility is electric, and that means that the lubricants industry must do what it has always done: evolve with the times and find new, effective ways to lubricate novel technology. One way that a lubricant company can future-proof part of its product portfolio is by adding thermal management fluids into the mix. As the need for liquid coolants grows, the industry is wasting little time jumping into the deep end.
The liquid coolant market is a hot one, with exponential growth expected over the next decade as large technology and chemical companies enter the sector. The most crucial aspect of that growth is the need to cool data centers as companies expand server capacity to handle such technologies as artificial intelligence, machine learning and cryptocurrency—all of which require high computing power.
