Global Isooctane Market – Overview
Isooctane is primarily used as an anti-knocking agent. The key application sector is in fuel additives because of its superior octane rating. Gasoline is a mixture of aliphatic hydrocarbon is a liquid form. This liquid mixture is derived through a chemical process of fractional distillation of petrol. This fractional distillation of petrol is the mixed with other additives such as aromatic hydrocarbons and isooctane as it aids in boosting the overall octane rating of gasoline. This process helps in preventing the ‘knocking’ of engines of vehicles.

Global Isooctane Market – Drivers and Restraints
One of the biggest driving factor for the growth of the global isooctane market is its growing use as an anti-knocking additive. Isooctane compounds are added to enhance the overall quality and efficacy of fuels. Also, these compounds are quite commonly used in gasoline engines. Their growing demand for improving the performance of these gasoline engines is thus driving the growth of the global isooctane market. In addition to this, these additives are mixed with the fuel in order to increase the ability to resist the knocking of the engine and also to avoid the incidences of self-ignition of air-fuel mixtures inside the engines.
Another important factor that is helping the growth of the global isooctane market is the growing preference of these compounds over the traditional methyl tert-butyl ether or MTBE. Methyl tert-butyl ether is an organic compound that is colorless and highly flammable and volatile liquid. It is responsible for the contamination of groundwater and soil. The growing conversions of methyl tert-butyl ether production facilities to isooctane compounds with an objective to prevent groundwater and soil contamination is also an important factor that is driving the growth of the global market.
