Growing environmental concerns regarding the emission of toxic gases into the atmosphere during ignition of transportation fuel has been prompting regulatory bodies of various governments to mandate the use of specialty fuel additives. In addition, the growing consumption of biofuels in blending of liquid transportation fuel in the U.S. and Europe is expected to drive the market over the forecast period. However, growing demand for CNG and LPG as transportation fuels has been acting as one of the major factors inhibiting the market growth.

Deposit control additives dominated the additives market globally and accounted for over 35% of the total demand in 2012. The growing demand for detergents as additives in fuel is one of the major factors driving the sale of deposit control additives. Deposit control additives were followed by cetane improvers with 9.8% of the total demand in 2012. Growing consumption of ULSD (ultra low sulfur diesel) in North America and Europe is expected to contribute to the growth of cetane improvers over the forecast period. Cold flow improvers are expected to be the fastest growing additives at an estimated CAGR of 7.3% from 2013 to 2019. Growing biodiesel consumption in the U.S. is expected to drive the cold flow improvers market.

Gasoline emerged as the leading fuel, consuming specialty fuel additives, and accounted for 45.6% of the total demand in 2012. However, the demand for gasoline based specialty fuel additives has been witnessing growth only in the U.S. due to the country's growing consumption of gasoline. In other regions around the world, gasoline demand has been stagnant on account of which the demand for specialty fuel additives used in diesel have been gaining popularity. Diesel accounted for 45.3% of the total demand in 2012 and is expected to surpass gasoline to become the leading fuel consuming specialty fuel additives by 2019. Other fuels for which specialty fuel additives are being used include ATF, marine fuel, heating oil, etc.
