Fuel additives are the chemicals that are used to enhance the properties of the fuel to which these are added. These are mixed with fuel such as gasoline, diesel, aviation fuel, fuel oil, etc. to improve fuel efficiency and economy. These help the fuel in meeting environmental emission control standards and improve engine or vehicle performance. Apart from these qualities, the fuel additives serve other purposes such as reduction of corrosive effects, enhance combustion properties, and develop various grades of fuel blends required for various commercial, automotive, industrial, and aerospace sectors. Fuel additives are designed to meet the increasingly stringent environment norms as various countries are implementing regulations to control emissions. Stringent environmental regulations, increasing demand for clean and efficient fuel, and depleting crude reserves are the main market drivers of the fuel additives market.
Fuel additives market is witnessing an increase in demand due to the increasing consumption of Ultra Low Sulphur Diesel (ULSD), which requires more dosing of additives. Though the gasoline consumption has experienced a dip worldwide but the unleaded gasoline used nowadays requires more dosing of additives, than the regular gasoline. Better and improved aviation fuel also requires heavy dosing of additives.
This report on fuel additives market segments the market by ten mostly used additives types such as deposit control additives, cetane improvers, antioxidants, dyes & markers, lubricity improvers, cold flow improvers, stability improvers, corrosion inhibitors, octane improvers, and anti-icing. The increasing utilization of fuel in different sectors necessitates the innovation and development of enhanced fuel additives to derive maximum performance out of the fuel and machines.
The best growth opportunities for the fuel additives are in the Asia-Pacific and Eastern Europe region, whereas mature North American and West European markets are predictable to register a modest growth. Moreover, China will be the fastest-growing country in global fuel additives market as its strong economic growth continues. In mature markets such as the U.S., Western Europe, and Japan growth will be driven more by the stricter implementation of environmental regulations.
