Fuel Oxygenates Market: Overview

  • Fuel oxygenates are chemical compounds comprising oxygen atom in a chain of carbon and hydrogen atoms. Fuel oxygenates are alcohols and ethers including ethanol fuel, methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE), ethyl tertiary butyl ether (ETBE), and tertiary amyl methyl ether (TAME). These possess high amount of oxygen and consequently can help in simple burning.
  • Fuel oxygenates are primarily used as fuel additives to enhance the octane number in reformulated gasoline, oxygenated fuel, and premium grades of unleaded gasoline
  • Technological advancements such as 100% bio-ether production, ternary blending, and conversion of tertiary amyl methyl ether (TAME) into tertiary amyl ethyl ether (TAEE) are anticipated to drive the global fuel oxygenates market during the forecast period

Key Drivers and Restraints of Fuel Oxygenates Market

  • Increase in adoption of green technologies in manufacture of fuel oxygenates is anticipated to boost the global fuel oxygenates market. Emergence of fuel oxygenates based on bio-feedstock to reduce smog forming precursors such as VOCs emitted from cars is propelling the demand for fuel oxygenates in the automotive & transportation industry.
  • Bio-ether based fuel oxygenates enhance the quality of fuel by curtailing CO2 emissions across their lifecycle and deliver superior balance between the high-speed and low-speed octane numbers (Motor Octane Number {MON} and Road Octane Number {RON}) that are required by modern cars. Therefore, demand for green fuel oxygenates is expected to increase rapidly in the next few years, as they help reduce fuel consumption, maintain costs, and exhaust emissions.
  • Rise in demand for green fuel oxygenates in transportation, vehicle fleet, cargo shipping, automotive, industrial, and commercial industries is projected to drive the global fuel oxygenates market
  • Growth in adoption rate of electric vehicles among consumers around the world is anticipated to hamper the fuel oxygenates market

Global Fuel Oxygenates Market: Segmentation
