With the inflating prices of the fuel and gases, consumers continue to scramble with the ways to increase the fuel efficiency. Over the time, harmful deposits can accumulate in the engine and hinder the efficiency significantly. Growing need for removing and cleaning the harmful deposits in the engines has significantly led to an upsurge in demand for specialty fuel additives globally. Moreover, increasing use of specialty fuel additives enhances functioning of the fuel, and helps in protecting the fuel system. As use of the specialty fuel additives help in removing the harmful deposits in the engines, it also improves the functioning in terms of power of the engine and acceleration.
According to a recently published report, the global specialty fuel additives market is expected to represent a value of over US$ 6,000 Mn by the end of 2022.

Consumption in the Automotive Industry
With time and rough usage, the engines accumulate harmful deposits that could block the injectors and disrupt the functioning of the engines. This could prevent the automotive to function smoothly and efficiently. Moreover, increasing demand for additives that help in removing and cleaning the accumulated deposits is likely to impact growth of the global market positively. Increasing need for unclogging the blocked injectors has led to an upsurge in demand for specialty fuel additives. Specialty fuel additives also help in burning the fuel in the cylinder after combustion, which helps in eliminating knocking. As specialty fuel additives resists knocking, the engine functions smoothly. Attributed to such factors, the manufacturers prefer using the specialty fuel additives that resist knocking in the engine, and enhances the functioning of the automotive.
Steady Demand in Aviation Industry
Apart from the automotive industry, the specialty fuel additives witness significant demand in the aviation industry. Specialty fuel additives witness significant demand in the deposit control additives, and cleanliness additives to clean and remove the deposits from the engine. Moreover, surge in demand for correcting problems related to fuel efficiency and enhancing performance is expected to impact growth of the global market positively. Moreover, growing need to prevent rust formation is expected to boost demand for corrosion inhibitors. Besides protection from rust formation, surge in need for preventing gum formation is expected to fuel demand for oxidation inhibitors. Attributed to metal deactivators, increasing use of specialty fuel additives is expected to inhibit gum formations.
Surge in demand for efficient fuel functioning, and protection from rust and gum formation in the automotive and aviation industry is expected to contribute towards growth of the global specialty fuel additives market. On the other hand, several factors are expected to inhibit growth of the global market during the forecast period. As environment protection agency (EPA) does not approve of the specialty fuel additives as an environment-friendly products, manufacturers prefer opting for alternative products that do not harm the environment. Further, increasing availability of cheaper products approved by the EPA is expected to inhibit growth of the global market significantly.
Diesel Specialty to Represent a Leading Segment
With increasing need for reducing the ignition delays during combustion, demand for the cetane improvers is expected to rev up. The cetane improvers segment is expected to represent a value of over US$ 600 Mn by the end of 2022. The deposit control additives segment is expected to represent the second highest revenue growth in the global market by the end of 2022. However, the anitoxidants segment is expected to register the highest CAGR in the global market through 2022.
The diesel specialty segment is expected to represent a value of over US$ 500 Mn in the global specialty fuel additives market by the end of 2022. The gasoline segment is expected to represent the second highest revenue growth in the global market by the end of 2022. Moreover, this segment is expected to register the highest CAGR in the global market through 2022.
