Selected Analysis done in the full Report:
- Gasoline is a petroleum derived liquid which is used as a fuel in the internal combustion engines. It is a fuel source for automotive and other vehicles. A series of additives such as octane improvers, corrosion inhibitors, metal deactivators, and antioxidants are used to make gasoline more efficient. Octane improvers are the most used gasoline fuel additives. Gasoline blends, along with methanol fuel additives, are used in racing cars, since methanol serves as a high octane booster.
- In various industries, bottled fuelled additives are used due to their oxidation inhibitor property. To ensure a better performance of fuel, high performance chemicals are used as additives. Industrial fuel additives ensure that machines run smoothly. Fuel additives which are mostly used are cetane improvers, metal deactivators, antioxidants, corrosion inhibitors, etc.
- Higher spending of consumers is driving the demand for light and heavy duty vehicles. Higher sale of automobiles leads to a higher consumption of fuels, lubricants, and more uses of bottled fuel additives.
- Increasing use of non-ferrous alloys, metals, and their premature deterioration in lubricating systems enhances the demand for Bottled Fuel Additives Market.
- Growing need for more enhance additives due to the demands from consumers and end user industries spurs the growth of bottled fuel additives.
- Growing awareness about the need for reducing the Carbon footprint and toxic emissions leads to the need for cleaner fuel. Hence, the need for more lubricant additives are required.
