Deposit control additives are fuel soluble components that are employed in the automotive industry. Commonly used deposit control additives include amides, amines, polybutene succinimides, polyether amines, polyolefin amines, and mannich amines. Deposit control additives are often referred to by the generic term detergents; however, their functions are different to that of conventional detergents used for washing and cleaning purposes. Deposit control additives are designed to keep the entire engine fuel system (from the fuel tank to the combustion chamber) clean. These additives prevent the formation of deposits, particularly on the intake valve and fuel injectors, which are derived from the breakdown of gasoline components. Deposit control additives inhibit deposit creation by forming protective films, which prevent the accumulation of deposit precursors.
Technological advancement in the automotive industry is one of the key factors driving the demand for deposit control additives. In recent years, constant research and development activities in the automobile industry have boosted the demand for deposit control additives in these applications. Rise in demand for automobiles with advanced features and fuel efficiency is anticipated to propel the demand for deposit control additives. Increase in oil exploration activities across the globe is estimated to trigger the deposit control additives market. Development in the consumer industry coupled with surge in demand for products with high fuel efficiency are likely to augment the demand for deposit control additives. Growth in awareness about the environment, mainly in the European Union, the U.S., and China and enactment of favorable government policies to adopt sustainable resources are key factors expected to boost the deposit control additives market. Geographic expansions and other strategies taken by the manufacturers of fuel additives are likely to increase the demand for deposit control additives in the upcoming years.
