Fuel additives are special solutions that are used with conventional petroleum fuels to enhance their various properties. These additives make it applicable to transport the fuel with greater flexibility to long distances imparting protection from microbial growth and water contamination. Also these additive packages improve various performance parameters such as combustion, mileage, octane rating, lubricity and few others. Corrosion inhibitors are the majorly consumed type of additive package across the world. The consumption of these additive packages depends on fuel consumption, treat rates, regulations and climatic conditions prevailing at respective regions. These additives are added to fuels including gasoline, diesel, heavy fuel oil, aviation fuel, kerosene and few others. Gasoline is the majorly consumed fuel across the world however consumption of ULSD is increasing at a higher rate which could drive the market for diesel additives in nearby future. Automobile is the major end-use segment for fuel additives followed by aviation sector.
Based on the type of fuel additives commercially available, this market is classified as cetane improvers, antioxidants, biocides, antiknock additives, cold flow improvers, corrosion inhibitors and others. Rapidly growing aviation and automobile industry in developing nations can be impetuous in fuel additives. Various additives are used for different applications depending up on the usage. Another important trend that drives growth for these adhesives is usage of biofuels in transportation.
The market is scrutinized by segments including type, type of fuel, application and geography. Based on various applications wherein these adhesives find its use, the market is segmented into flexible automobile, aviation, industry and others. The report also comprises of the region wise study of the global market including Americas, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World.
Automobile industry is poised to dominate this market during 2016-2021. However, aviation as well as industry is comprehended to witness prominent CAGR of 5.20% and 4.93% respectively during the same period. Escalating demand for low environmental foot prints from vehicles and high quality fuel is propelling the growth of fuel additives market.
