Specialty Fuel Additives

Advances will be driven by a mild rebound in petroleum fuel demand as the economic recovery continues and by an increase in additization rates due to mandated biofuel consumption

US demand to grow 4.8% annually through 2016

US demand for specialty fuel additives will grow 4.8 percent per year to $1.6 billion in 2016, with volume demand increasing 1.1 percent annually to 725 million pounds. Advances will be driven by a mild rebound in petroleum fuel demand as the economic recovery continues to strengthen and by an increase in additization rates due to rising biofuel consumption as mandated by the federal government. Additionally, market growth will reflect continued price inflation due to upward pressure on raw material costs as natural gas prices rebound from their 2012 lows.

Cold flow improvers to grow at fastest rate

Cold flow improvers will grow at the fastest rate through 2016 due to the increasing use of biodiesel in the fuel supply, a requirement of the EPA’s Renewable Fuel Standard 2 (RFS2). Biodiesel’s reduced functionality in diesel engines in winter conditions requires higher loadings of cold flow improvers, which will help drive demand. However, biodiesel’s high cetane number and excellent lubricating properties will also reduce demand for lubricity improvers and cetane improvers, making them the only additives to experience a decline in volume demand through 2016.

Dyes and markers and metal deactivators will also not benefit from growing fuel demand, with volume demand for both products remaining flat through 2016. Dyes and markers will be mildly impacted by an end to EPA-mandated dyeing of high sulfur fuels, while metal deactivator loadings will decrease slightly due to the use of more metal-free additives in fuel. Demand for antioxidants, corrosion inhibitors, and other additives will all expand at a moderate pace, due to increasing fuel demand.

Deposit control agents will remain the largest product segment. A previous attempt by the EPA to regulate detergent levels in gasoline actually resulted in a decrease in demand, causing depositrelated engine problems. This prompted several automakers to establish the Top Tier Detergent Gasoline standard in 2004. Deposit control demand rebounded quickly as most major gasoline brands adopted the Top Tier standard. Future growth in this segment will be aided by recent retailer efforts to differentiate their products by promoting the high concentrations of detergents in their gasoline.

Blenders, terminals to remain largest market

Blenders and terminals will remain the largest market for fuel additives. Demand in this market will continue to grow as marketers attempt to differentiate their fuel offerings to end-consumers. Aftermarket volume demand will benefit from customers’ efforts to offset rising gasoline costs by increasing fuel efficiency.

Study Scope

This study analyzes the $1.3 billion US specialty fuel additives industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2001, 2006 and 2011, and forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by additive type (e.g., detergents, cetane improvers, antioxidants, lubricity improvers, cold flow improvers, petroleum dyes and markers, corrosion inhibitors), application (e.g., gasoline, diesel fuel) and market (blenders and terminals, refiners, aftermarket).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 32 industry players, including NewMarket, Innospec and BASF.
