Drivers and Restraints
Increasing Demand for Retail Fuel to Drive Market Growth
Fuel additives have high application in retail fuel i.e. petrol and diesel as it aids in several problems related with fuel delivery system in the vehicle. According to the Additive Technical Committee (ATC), the technical committee of petroleum additive manufacturers in Europe, more than 50% share of additives is utilized in retail fuel. The increasing demand for petrol and diesel backed by an increased rate of production and sales of vehicles worldwide is estimated to drive the market. In addition, fuel additives help engines emit less carbon by reducing carbon deposits from cylinder heads, valves, and pistons. Therefore, stringent regulations by governments across the world regarding reducing carbon emissions from automobiles and refineries are anticipated to strengthen the demand for the product.
However, the increasing demand for clean energy and the high inclination of industries toward the use of renewable resources for fuel purposes is anticipated to reduce the utilization of petrol and diesel. In addition, an increase in the sales of Electric vehicles is predicted to further cut down the consumption of fossil fuels. Such factors are estimated to hinder the market growth.
Increasing Petroleum Exploration in the U.S. and Canada to Propel Demand in North America
North America is anticipated to dominate the fuel additives market share during the forecast period. One of the leading factors driving the market in the region is the increasing rate of petroleum exploration activities from various oil-producing countries including the U.S. and Canada. In addition, the increasing demand for fuel from various end-user industries including power generation, logistics, and others is projected to further propel the adoption.
The market in Europe is predicted to hold a significant market share. The region is home to major automotive manufacturers including Volkswagen, Renault, Peugeot, and Mercedes. The high usage due to the well-established manufacturing industry is forecast to drive the market growth in the region.
