The commonly used additives are deposit control additives such as detergents, carrier fluids, antifoam, and dehazers, cetane improvers, antioxidants, dyes & markers, lubricity improvers, cold flow improvers, stability improvers, corrosion inhibitors, octane improvers, and anti-icing.
The global market revenue from Fuel Additives Market is estimated at $4.5 billion with volume demand 1,119 thousand tons in 2011. Deposit control additives capture the maximum market share followed by cetane improvers, lubricity improvers, cold flow improvers, and antioxidants. North America is the largest market at present. In next five years, the North America fuel additive market will slip to second position left behind by Asia-Pacific market. From 2012 to 2017, Asia-Pacific will grow at highest growth rate mainly driven by increasing fuel demand from developing economies such as India and China.
