Global Fuel Cetane Improvers Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Cetane improvers are additives that are used to improve the cetane rating of diesel fuel. The cetane rating is a measure of the fuel's ability to ignite quickly and create a sustained combustion reaction. A high cetane rating is important for diesel engines because it results in less engine noise, reduced emissions, and better performance. Cetane improvers are typically added to diesel fuel in small quantities during the refining process.


Nitrates are colorless, water-soluble, and highly combustible organic compounds. They are also known as nitric acid with the formula (HNO3)2. The most common sources of nitrate include fertilizers, methanol and natural gas. Nitrate is used in a variety of end-use industries including pharmaceuticals, food & beverages processing industry and chemical synthesis industry among others which includes research activities for new medicines or processes.

Organic Peroxide:

Organic peroxide is a chemical compound of oxygen and hydrogen. It has a triple bond between its molecules, which makes it an organic compound. The product name comes from the fact that the molecule contains an extra pair of electrons, which can be found in compounds like carbon dioxide and water but not in combination with other elements like oxygen or nitrogen.

Application Insights:

Vessel buring application segment to witness the fastest CAGR of XX% over the forecast period. Rising demand for marine fuel additives is expected to drive growth in this segment, followed by Electric power generation and other applications including LPG trucks, off-road diesel engines and on-highway diesel engines.

Increasing demand for low sulfur fuel in various electric power generation plants across the world is expected to drive product demand from 2018 to 2030 as a cetane improver. In addition, growing concerns regarding pollution levels are likely to propel market growth over the coming years.

Other applications include Aviation turbine fuels (ATF), Industrial gas turbines (IGT).

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific was the largest regional market in 2017 and will expand further at a steady CAGR from 2018 to 2030 owing to increasing demand for marine fuels. The region accounted for over 45% of the overall industry share in 2017, which can be attributed to rising fuel consumption in emerging economies such as China and India. Moreover, growing industrialization coupled with an increase in automotive production is expected to drive product demand over the forecast period.

The Asia Pacific was followed by Europe that accounted for nearly 28% of total industry volume share owing to stringent regulations regarding pollution control along with high energy density of gasoline resulting into higher vehicular efficiency rating. Furthermore, presence of major fuel manufacturers including Shell Chemicals; Esso Petroleum (Statoil); ExxonMobil Corporation; PKN Orlen SA; BP plc.; Total S.A.; Statoil ASA; and Royal Dutch Shell Plc.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for fuel cetane improvers from the transportation sector as it helps in reducing emissions and improving engine performance
  • Rising demand for fuel cetane improvers from the agricultural sector as it helps in increasing the efficiency of engines used in agricultural equipment
  • Growing demand for fuel cetane improvers from the mining sector as they help to improve combustion and reduce emissions
  • Increasing use of fuel additives by Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to meet stringent emission norms
  • Technological advancements that have led to development of new and more efficient fuel cetane improvers
