Market Overview

The Global "Diesel Fuel Additives Market" is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.9% during the forecasting period (2022-2029).

Diesel fuel additives are added to the fuel to enhance its properties.

  • These additives can be added in three different stages as At refinery, in the fuel distribution system, and after the fuel has left the control of the producer.
  • The use of additives in the refinery depends on type of the crude oil, refinery process, and blending structure. In the distribution system, the additives are added mainly due to an increase in the pipeline capacity and corrosion inhibition. Aftermarket additives will be the choice of the consumer for example de-icers are used in cold weather conditions to prevent icing.
  • The Fuel efficiency of diesel engines, which made running costs lower than gasoline over the long term is an added advantage to diesel fuel additives market
  • Diesel engines are more efficient than gasoline engines regarding mileage. Moreover, the price of diesel fuel is less than gasoline in many countries. Thus, the government has strong support for diesel vehicles to reduce carbon emissions. Europe is the major consumer of diesel vehicles in history.
  • Diesel’s most significant moment in the UK was probably in 2001, when Gordon Brown, then chancellor of the Labour government, cut fuel duty on diesel vehicles as a deliberate effort to encourage people to switch.
  • High consumption of diesel fuel in OECD Europe is one of the drivers of the growth of diesel fuel additives in the European region
    The average refinery output of various products such as Diesel, Gasoline, Fuel Oil, Kerosene, Naphtha, LPG, and Others in OECD Europe is shown below
  • OECD Europe diesel production has doubled in 2016 as compared to gasoline owing to an increase in demand for diesel vehicles and government support in taxation.
  • Diesel fuel is taxed significantly less than petrol in most countries, making it 10% to 40% less expensive at the pump. Together these regulatory and budgetary mutilations have skewed the vehicle market for diesel and raised its business offer to over 50%. However, to meet the regional demand for diesel, Europe became heavily reliant on other countries for import, especially Russia, the Middle East & the United States.
  • Europe’s obsession with diesel cars is not suitable for its economy, its drivers & the environment
  • The Volkswagen emissions scandal (Dieselgate) began in September 2015, when the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a notice of violation of the Clean Air Act to German automaker Volkswagen Group.
  • The agency had found that Volkswagen had intentionally programmed turbocharged direct injection (TDI) diesel engines to activate their emissions controls only during laboratory emissions testing. The growth of diesel vehicles is declined in Europe because of the scandal.
  • A growing interest in Electric vehicles in the world is the significant restraint of the market
  • Stringent environmental regulations on internal combustion engines, combined with technological advancements in the automotive industry, are driving the surge in demand for Electric vehicles (EVs). Worldwide sales of pure battery EVs (excluding hybrids) grew by approximately 45% in 2016. The increase in EV sales across the world especially in European countries such as Norway and France is one of the reasons for a decline in the consumption of Diesel Fuel Additives in this region.


  • Fuel additives in the United States are regulated under section 211 of the Clean Air Act. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires the registration of all fuel additives which are commercially distributed for use in highway motor vehicles in the United States and may require testing and ban harmful additives.
  • The EPA also regularly reviews the health and net economic benefits of Clean Air Act policies.

Market Segmentation

  • Diesel Fuel Additives market is classified based on various types such as Deposit Control Additives, Cetane Number Improvers, Cold Flow Improvers, Anti-Foam Additives, Corrosion Inhibitors, Demulsifiers/Dehazers/Emulsion Preventives, Conductivity Improvers, Metal Deac-tivators, Lubricity Improvers, and Others.
  • Deposit control additives are generally referred to as detergents, and it is used to keep the entire fuel system clean and free of additional matter. Deposit control additives have a dominant market share with approximately 38% of total Diesel fuel additives market followed by antioxidants and corrosion inhibitors.
  • The report segments the geographies by region, which include North America, South America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World.
  • Asia-Pacific is the leading market for Diesel Fuel Additives owing to growing automotive sales in this region. Moreover, Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at a higher pace due to strong government support with ad-hoc tax incentives.
  • However, Japan continues to reduce its fuel oil usage in favor of natural gas, coal, and restarting nuclear plants. In Saudi Arabia, a focus on increasing natural gas electricity generation capacity is contributing to fuel oil’s decline in 2017 and 2018.
  • The report covers the factors impacting the market, Porter 5 Forces, Market Share Analysis, Price trend analysis, Product Benchmarking, and company profiles. The report profiles the following companies, which include Total SA, Chevron Corporation, Clariant AG, Evonik Industries, Shell, and many more.
