Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023-2035

Heating Oil Additives Market size is expected to surpass USD 13 Billion by the end of 2035, witnessing around 5% CAGR during the forecast period, i.e., 2023-2035. In the year 2022, the market size of heating oil additives was USD 6 Billion. The growth of the market can be attributed to the growing tendency of government authorities towards promoting eco-friendly fuel ignition and mode of transportation, low cost, better fuel effectiveness, and increasing attention to carbon emission and greenhouse gas. Additionally, the prices of fuels are rising exponentially worldwide and this factor is estimated to propel the growth of the heating oil additives market during the forecast period. For instance, in 2022, the average global price of gasoline was evaluated as about USD 1.35 per liter.

In addition to these, global heating oil additives market trends such as growth in the government initiatives towards taking significant actions to reduce carbon emissions and harmful greenhouse gas since heating oil additives burn down the fuel oil thoroughly are expected to influence the market growth positively over the forecast period. Owing to these factors,  a rise in the utilization of heating oil can be observed across the globe. In a report published by IEA in 2021, the global CO2 emission from oil was estimated to be over 650 Mt. Additionally, people utilize heating oil additives to avoid heavy maintenance of the engine or incidences of a vehicle’s boiler breaking down. Therefore, all these factors are also anticipated to propel the growth of the market during the forecast period.

Heating Oil Additives Sector : Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Growing Incidents of Engine Failure – the main task of heating oil additives is to keep the tank, engines, and boilers clean so there is less possibility of engine failure. It can be quite expensive to get the engines fixed again and it is also projected to cause severe incidents. For instance, a single failure of a jet engine is noticed to cause a loss of approximately 300,000 flight hours. Additionally, nearly 200 cases of engine failure are observed every year across the globe.

  • Rising Production of Diesel Across the Globe – diesel is a specific type of fuel that requires heating oil additives for better fuel efficiency. Diesel is also one of the most preferred fuels over other alternative products. For instance, in 2021, more than 45 billion gallons of diesel were consumed in the United States while in a similar year, approximately 1 billion barrels of diesel were produced in the USA. 

  • Increasing Concern for Vehicular Co2 Emission – vehicles are observed to emit heavy amounts of carbon die oxide which harms the environment. Most of the harmful gases are caused by the malfunction in the engine of these vehicles. For instance, in 2020, nearly 40% of the CO2 emission was caused by passenger cars while around 20% of the emission was caused by medium and heavy trucks.

  • Growing Manufacturing of Automobiles to Boost the Market Growth – automobiles except for electric vehicles, has the highest demand for fuel. A surge in the production and sales of automobiles can be observed which is expected to drive the market growth over the forecast period. For instance, approximately 75 million motor vehicles were estimated to be produced across the globe in 2021.


  • Presence of the Alternative Fuels
  • Higher Production of Electric and Hybrid Vehicles

As the production volume of electric vehicles is growing, this factor is also becoming robust to limit the market growth over the forecast period. Electric vehicles are completely powered by electricity, they are mainly manufactured to eliminate the demand for fuel. For instance, it was anticipated that by the year 2030, more than 120 million electric vehicles will be sold out across the globe that includes cars, heavy trucks, buses, and others.

Heating Oil Additives Segmentation

End-user (Industrial, Residential, Commercial)

The global heating oil additives market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by end-user into industrial, residential, and commercial. Out of the three types of end-users, the commercial segment is estimated to gain the largest market share in the year 2035. The growth of the segment can be attributed to the growing sales of fuel additives worldwide. The sales of fuel additives are noticed to grow on the back of escalating demand in the aerospace and automotive industry and degradation in the quality of crude oil. Additionally, a significant rise has been noticed in the global price of fuels in recent decades. For instance, the global automotive industry was projected to grow on the back of total sales of around 65 million automobiles in 2021. Additionally, the surge in government initiatives to support the supply chain and enhance fuel efficiency is further expected to spike the segment growth over the forecast period.

Fuel Type (Bio-Diesel, Diesel, LPG, Petrol)

The global heating oil additives market is also segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by fuel type into bio-diesel, diesel, LPG, and petrol. Amongst these segments, the diesel segment is expected to garner a significant share in the year 2035. The growth of the segment can be accounted to the surge in the consumption of diesel and which requires high dosages of additives to be mixed in diesel to offer more power and efficiency. Another major factor to propel the growth of the segment is that engines that are powered by diesel are preferred over engines that are powered by gasoline since they are observed to emit less carbon dioxide making them suitable for the environment. For instance, a passenger is noticed to emit approximately 4 metric tons of carbon dioxide annually each year.
