Bunker Fuel Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026

The global bunker fuel market reached a value of US$ 123.9 Billion in 2020. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach a value of US$ 155.2 Billion by 2026. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

Bunker fuel, also known as a marine fuel, is a heavy, residual oil used to power the motors or engines of the marine fleet. It is obtained after extracting gasoline, diesel and other light hydrocarbons from crude oil during the fractional distillation in refineries. It is a viscous liquid with a characteristic odor that contains high sulfur content and can be reduced using different processes. The small quantity of lighter fuel, such as diesel, is also mixed to make it less thick.

Rapid globalization, along with the escalating demand for international seaborne trade, has increased export and import activities worldwide. This represents one of the major factors bolstering the market growth. Apart from this, the rising oil and gas exploration activities in deep offshore areas are acting as another major growth-inducing factor. Furthermore, as vessels have a large load-bearing capacity compared to other transportation modes, there is an increase in the demand for bunker oil to refuel vessels during sailing. Moreover, governments of several countries are focusing on strengthening geographical border security, which is increasing the number of naval fleets and contributing to the market growth. Besides this, with the growing environmental concerns, market players are investing in research and development (R&D) projects to develop clean, eco-friendly fuels. However, the market has been adversely impacted due to the outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and consequent lockdowns imposed by governments of several countries, which has restricted sea trade activities across the globe. The market is expected to regain growth as normaly is regained.
