How is Demand from Automobile Sector Boosting Sales of Alkylate?

Alkylate is extensively used in the automobile industry, as adding alkylate to motor gasoline helps in increasing octane while meeting stringent volatility specifications. Though the automobile sector declined temporarily in 2020, recovery has started and demand from this sector is projected to grow significantly over the coming years.

According to a report titled “Automobile Industry Spotlight”, published by SelectUSA, the United States automotive industry is one of the largest industries in the world, while almost every major European, Japanese, and Korean automaker producing vehicles and investing more than US$ 75 billion in the country. As stated in the report, U.S. affiliates of majority foreign-owned automotive companies directly support more than 400,000 U.S. jobs. These statistics give an estimation of the growing opportunities for alkylate suppliers not only in the U.S. but around the globe.

Who is Winning in this Space?

The global market is getting tougher in terms of competition. In order to capitalize on the growing opportunities, key players are diversifying their products.
