World Fuel Additives

As Quoted In Oil & Gas Journal

Global demand in value terms for fuel additives will grow 8% per annum to over $59 billion in 2016 as volume demand for gasoline oxygenates such as MTBE rises in developing regions.

World demand to rise 4.7% per annum through 2016

The world market for fuel additives by volume is forecast to grow 4.7 percent per year to 26.5 million metric tons in 2016, with demand in value terms rising 8.0 percent yearly to $59.4 billion. Total fuel additive demand in volume terms is heavily dominated by gasoline oxygenates, such as methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE). In 2011, ether oxygenates accounted for 94 percent of total demand.

Excluding oxygenates, global demand for specialty fuel additives is projected to rise 3.6 percent per year to 1.5 million metric tons in 2016. The rapidly growing fuel market in China will drive advances, particularly as China’s fuel standards become stricter and additive treat rates rise. Globally, deposit control additives will exhibit the greatest gains, promoted by higher standards needed to accommodate the increased use of newer engine technology. Cold flow improvers will be the fastest growing product type, though from a much smaller base.

Oxygenates to remain dominant fuel additive

Going forward, world demand for both oxygenates and specialty additives will be influenced by changing standards for vehicle emissions, fuel quality, and engine efficiency. Many industrializing nations began significant regulation of fuels after 2006, in response to concerns over air and water pollution. One of the biggest influences on global fuel additive demand is the use of low sulfur diesels. While most industrialized nations have already met their target sulfur levels, many industrializing nations have not yet fully transitioned to low sulfur diesels, which need higher levels of lubricity improvers, cold flow improvers, and other additives. As the motor vehicle market globalizes, vehicle manufacturers around the world are producing more efficient and better performing engines, which require high quality fuel types.

Ethanol, biodiesel use to hike fuel additive demand

Many countries have also adopted biofuel mandates as a way to reduce overall consumption of petroleum products. In order to meet targeted biofuel levels, many countries are expected to increase the levels of ethanol and biodiesel blended into their gasoline and diesel supplies. Ethanol and biodiesel use will have a substantial impact on fuel additive demand by necessitating increased use of antioxidants, corrosion inhibitors, cold flow improvers, and other products.

Biofuel mandates are expected to contribute to expanded demand for ethyl tertiary butyl ether (ETBE), which is used in many European markets as an alternative to direct blending of ethanol. In addition, ETBE treat rates will expand as ETBE is used as a replacement for MTBE, which is coming under increased scrutiny in developed nations over its possible health effects. However, use of MTBE in developing regions is expected to continue to grow, leading to continued gains in MTBE demand.

Study Scope

This study analyzes the $40.5 billion world specialty fuel additives industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2001, 2006 and 2011, and forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by product (e.g., deposit control additives, cetane improvers, lubricity improvers, cold flow improvers, corrosion inhibitors, antioxidants), application (e.g., gasoline, distillate), world region and for 19 countries.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 45 industry players, including LyondellBasell Industries, Saudi Basic Industries, and Sinopec.
