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.
