Strategic Analysis of the Global Fuel Additives Market
Deposit control, antioxidants, and anti-corrosion additives remain key gasoline additives. Unlike gasoline fuel additives, diesel fuel additives vary significantly across all regions due to the prevailing regulatory scenario and climatic conditions.
Environment Protection Agency (EPA) regulations in the US and European Standards Organization (CEN) regulations in Europe that aim to reduce sulphur content in the fuel, significantly boost additive consumption. Furthermore, tightening regulations to improve vehicle efficiency and fuel economy are expected to accelerate additive demand. MARPOL regulations in Europe remain the most stringent in the marine industry.
Regulations are beginning to be implemented in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) and Rest-of-World (ROW) regions, leading to increased additive consumption. However, lack of regulatory enforcement in a number of countries within APAC and ROW remains a key factor deterring additive demand in the region.
Cetane improvers are extensively used in North America and Europe due to stringent fuel-efficiency regulations. However, a less-stringent regulatory scenario in APAC and ROW regions has resulted in a smaller share of cetane improvers.
