Gasoline octane improvers Market: Introduction
Gasoline octane improvers may be defined as boosters that enhance the octane level of gasoline. Increased octane level in gasoline tends to decrease the knocking tendency of engine. Also, the gasoline octane improvers are crucial in achieving the carbon emission reduction programs proposed by various authorities, such as National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), US EPA etc. Gasoline octane improvers consist of three major compounds that are methyl tertiary5butyl ether (MTBE), ethanol and ethyl tertiary-butyl ether (ETBE). Also, tertiary-amyl ethyl ether (TAEE) and tertiary-amyl methyl ether (TAME) are the improvers used in lesser quantities in several regions. The global gasoline octane improvers market is expected to foray ahead with a lower single digit CAGR over the forecast period of 2019-2029. Increasing adoption of bio-based ethanol as a gasoline octane improver is identified as the recent trend within the market. Moreover, increasing ethanol production, emphasis on fuel efficiency along with stringent government regulations regarding carbon emission reduction, which are some of the factors driving the global market over the forecast period. In addition, factors such as rising penetration of electric vehicles tends to act as a restraint for the market growth till 2029.
High demand for gasoline octane improvers from the automotive industry is poised to drive market growth over the forecast period
High demand for gasoline octane improvers specifically from automotive industry is leveraging huge adoption opportunities for the market. As per OICA (International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers), Paris, the total passenger cars sales in 2016 was recorded to be around 70 million, which further escalated to 71 million in 2017. The automotive industry, in particular, calls for high adoption of gasoline octane improvers for adhering to the regulations set by government authorities of various countries. Therefore, with an increasing number of motor vehicles, the demand for gasoline octane improvers is expected to increase, which, in turn, drives the market growth till 2029.
