Deposit Control Additives – The Majorly Used Aftermarket Fuel Additive
Fuel additives are used to enhance the qualities of the base fuel or to add new required performance features. In 2017, deposit control additives dominated the global aftermarket fuel additives market. The addition of deposit control additives (DCA) helps to keep the whole fuel system completely clean and free of extraneous matter. If they are not in adequate quantity in gasoline, harmful deposits can build up inside the engine. Owing to such factors, and various other advantages provided by them, they have acquired a significant importance in the aftermarket fuel additive market.
Gasoline – The Largest Application Market
In 2017, gasoline application dominated the global market. The growing demand for high performance gasoline owing to stringent emission regulations is driving the need for continuous advancements in equipment technologies, which, in turn, is driving up the need for aftermarket fuel additives in gasoline through the years. Furthermore, with ethanol usage rising continuously, the need for high performance gasoline has increased more than ever.
North America – the Dominating Regional Market
North America accounted for the largest market for aftermarket fuel additives primarily owing to the stringent emission regulations laid down by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Furthermore, growing demand for improved fuel economy, more engine power, and better equipment protection by the consumers too has added to the growing market of aftermarket fuel additives in North America.
May 2017: Cummins, Inc., the world’s largest manufacturer of diesel engines, officially endorsed and recommended two Power Service products (fuel additives) – Diesel Kleen + Cetane Boost and Diesel Fuel Supplement + Cetane Boost – for use in diesel engines
