Diesel Exhaust Fluid Market to Reach $20,518 Million by 2023

Published Date:   August 2018

Global diesel exhaust fluid market is projected to reach $20,518.0 million by 2023, according to P&S Intelligence.

The diesel exhaust fluid market is mainly driven by the introduction of stricter environmental regulations in different parts of the world along with rising sales of motor vehicles such as heavy- and medium-duty vehicles.

Insights into market segments

Based on storage solutions, the diesel exhaust fluid market is categorized into bulk storage, dispensers, and portable containers. Globally, bulk storage held the largest share in the diesel exhaust fluid market, accounting for more than 45.0% share in terms of value in 2017. Large scale usage of bulk storage solutions for storing diesel exhaust fluid or AdBlue in heavy- and medium-duty vehicles will contribute to the growth in demand for the storage solutions.

Diesel Exhaust Fluid Market

On the basis of applications, the diesel exhaust fluid market is bifurcated into vehicular and non-vehicular. Vehicular applications dominated the market as it contributed more than 95.0% share in terms of value in 2017. Stringent environmental regulations in the European and North American nations mandate the vehicle owners to reduce emission of harmful gases which in turn encourage them to bring down the emission levels by using AdBlue. This helps in sustaining the growth of diesel exhaust fluid market in vehicular applications.

Market is expected to witness the fastest growth in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region

The diesel exhaust fluid market is expected to witness the fastest growth in the APAC region, owing to the presence of fast growing economies such as China and India. The demand for transportation for facilitating the movement of goods is rising in these countries which has promoted the sales of heavy- and medium-duty vehicles. Moreover, rapid economic growth in these nations have also resulted in huge amount of vehicular pollution. Owing to the increased levels of vehicular pollution, these nations have either implemented or in the process to implement stringent emission norms.

The implementation of stricter emission norms is expected to encourage the fleet operators to install emission control systems which in turn will boost the diesel exhaust fluid market in the APAC region.

Major trend identified in the market is the shift in demand from heavy- and medium-duty vehicles to passenger cars

Traditionally, the diesel exhaust fluid market was driven by heavy- and medium-duty vehicles such as trucks and trailers. This was due to the fact that heavy- and medium-duty vehicles use diesel which leads to massive amount of vehicular pollution. On the other hand, the demand for diesel exhaust fluid in passenger cars remained low historically as there were limited regulations to check the emissions from passenger cars. However, with the growing environmental concerns, passenger cars operators are adopting the pollution control measures which have opened up avenues for diesel exhaust fluid market in passenger cars.

Emerging nations to serve as lucrative market opportunity

Over the recent years, emerging nations such as China, India, and Brazil have witnessed rapid surge in the economic activities which offer significant boost to transportation and logistics industry in these countries. Moreover, due to the rising income levels, these countries have emerged as a one of the most lucrative automobile markets in the world. For instance, in 2017, around 90 million passenger cars were sold in the world, out of which more than a quarter were sold in China alone. The rising sales of automobiles is expected to boost the consumption of anti-pollutant fluids thereby encouraging the growth of diesel exhaust fluid market.

Moreover, emerging nations are increasingly adopting stringent emission norms which will encourage the consumption of AdBlue used for reducing vehicular emissions. The introduction of vehicles equipped with anti-pollutant technologies will have a positive impact on the diesel exhaust fluid market.

Diesel exhaust fluid market competitive landscape
