Global No.2 Diesel Fuel Market Highlights 2022 – 2030

The global no.2 diesel fuel market is estimated to garner a large amount of revenue and grow at a robust CAGR over the forecast period, i.e., 2022 – 2030. The growth of the market can be attributed to the growing awareness regarding the usage of high-performance fuels, and rising per capita spending across the world. Along with these, increasing population of automobiles on the roads globally, and substantial progress of transportation industry, specifically in developed and developing regions are also expected to boost the market growth in the upcoming years. According to the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers, about 91.786 million automobiles were produced in the year 2019, out of which around 67.149 million units were cars and 24.637 million units were commercial vehicles. Furthermore, escalating demand for portable power engines, and surge in utilization of fuel additives for enhancing fuel performance are projected to offer profitable opportunities for market growth in the near future.

No.2 Diesel Fuel Market

The market is segmented by application into railways, transportation, marine shipping, electric power generation, and others, out of which, the transportation segment is anticipated to hold the largest share in the global no.2 diesel fuel market. This can be accounted to the rapidly increasing urbanization and industrialization, and increase in government investments to improve transportation facilities. Additionally, on the basis of sulfur content, the ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel segment is predicted to witness noteworthy growth during the forecast period, which can be credited to the deployment of stringent government regulations to lower the amount of sulfur in diesel fuel, and growing awareness regarding environmental pollution among consumers across the globe.   

Major Macro-Economic Indicators Impacting the Market Growth

Electricity Consumption

In 2018, the world’s total energy supply was 14282 Mtoe, wherein the highest share in terms of source was captured by oil, accounting for 31.6%, followed by coal (26.9%), natural gas (22.8%), biofuels and waste (9.3%), nuclear (4.9%), hydro (2.5%), and other (2.0%). Where there was an increase in energy demand in 2018, the year 2019 witnessed slow growth as the energy efficiency improved owing to decline in the demand for cooling and heating. However, in 2020, the electricity demand decreased by 2.5% in the first quarter of 2020 due to the outbreak of Coronavirus resulting in government imposed shutdowns in order to limit the spread of the virus, which was further followed by shutdown of numerous business operations impacting their growth. This also resulted in decline of 5.8% in the worldwide CO2 emissions which was recorded to be five times larger than the one recorded during the global financial crisis in 2009. However, in 2021, the demand for oil, gas and coal is estimated to witness growth, which is further projected to create opportunities for market growth. Moreover, rising environment degradation and awareness related to climate change is motivating many key players to employ sustainable energy strategies and invest significantly in environment-friendly power generation technologies with an aim to promote sustainable development among various nations around the world. Such factors are anticipated to promote the growth of the market in upcoming years.
