Adblue Market is projected to be worth USD 38 Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 5.9% during the forecast period (2021 - 2030), The market was valued at USD 27.55 billion in 2021.
AdBlue is also known as Diesel Exhaust Fluid that helps to bring down the level of air pollution that is caused by the use of diesel engines. It is also known as ARLA 32 or AUS 32 and is as sold as AdBlue. AdBlue can also be described as an aqueous urea solution that contains 67.5% deionized water and 32.5% urea. The main reason for the bolstered demand as a part of the AdBlue market can result in the rise in strict NOx emission policies for commercial off-road engines and trucks. The fact that engine developers are installing and developing embedded selective catalytic reduction technology in their vehicles is likely to present the market with excellent attributes during the forecast period.
The AdBlue market has been a part of the major havoc and disruption that has been caused on a worldwide scale because of the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic. The lockdown that had been imposed by the global governments across the world has created a major and deep impact on the functioning of the retail sector, travel and tourism, and the hospitality industry on a global basis. There were fewer freight activities and international travel which deteriorated the condition of the AdBlue market size even more. The main reason behind this is the consumption of AdBlue while the vehicle’s running cannot be compromised upon. There was a sharp reduction of the market products and services and the low data availability on diesel consumption across various countries. The market players have begun looking for Chinese Data to make an understanding of the effects of the pandemic on the market in 2020.
The global market players had an exercise of understanding the availability of replicas in the global regions. In the US region, as a part of the global AdBlue market size, the fertilizer demand was unaffected resulting in increased demand and sale for the packaged products that have arisen during the forecast period. The increased funds and investment also has great opportunities for the global market in-store.
The rising degree of competition in the AdBlue market is a result of the recent developments undertaken by the following market players:
There has been a huge growth for the Adblue market share in the agricultural sector which is all set to rise the demand for the market during the forecast period. The factors that are driving the growth of the AdBlue market are the improved degree of infrastructure, rapid growth, and expansion of industrialization, alongside a rise in demand for heavy-duty vehicles. In addition, there has been a low cost of production that is another factor that is restraining the leading factors for business growth during the forecast period of 2021-2028.
There are stringent market regulations regarding the disinclination of individuals regarding the installation of SCR along with the entire diesel exhausting fluid tank system because of the rising prices. Also, there has been a constant lack of stringent emission regulation requirements in majorly the underdeveloped and emerging countries that are limiting the AdBlue market value during the period that will be ending in 2028.
The substantial growth in the demand for the market products and services for the smooth functioning of the agricultural industry like machines, pumps, harvesters, tractors, and others is likely to provide the market with excellent growth strategies and stances to dwell upon during the forecast period. Also, the rising use and employment of technological factors are pushing for an elaborated use of AdBlue. It is known to help in the emission of toxic gases that are projected to present the global market with profitable business opportunities during the forecast period that will be ending in 2028.
The AdBlue market has been segmented as follows:
The packaging segment of the AdBlue market is expected to witness the highest demand over the review period ending in 2028. The packaging sector is witnessing a major degree of expansion, and product innovations that are contributing to the growth of the segment, especially during the forecast period.
The post-combustion segment is likely to dominate the market share over the forecast period owing to the growing adoption of SCR. Harmful nitrogen oxides are converted into harmless nitrogen and water with the help of the SCR catalytic converter. It is also used in heavy vehicles, like lorries, taxis, and railways, thus pushing development in the industry.
The demand is expected to be the maximum for cars and motor vehicles during the forecast period. Several regulations have been introduced by the global governments to curb emissions from passenger vehicles, paving the way for the huge development of the diesel exhaust fluid industry for passenger cars.
October 2021- DGL Group has announced the acquisition of a Queensland-based company, the biggest Australian AdBlue manufacturer, AUSblue. AdBlue is an automotive fluid product infused from an individual small tank into a vehicle’s exhaust system automatically to help reduce nitrogen oxide emissions. It is a mixture of deionized water and urea.
The CEO and managing director of DGL group refused any suggestion that AUSblue, bought in a deal worth over USD9 million including cash and shares, might be surpassed by the electric vehicle transition regardless of the hysteria about electric vehicle pioneer Tesla and its founder Elon Musk.
December 2021- Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited announced the launch of Diesel Exhaust Fluid dispensers 5 MAK AdBlue at Energy Stations in Bhubaneswar, Paradeep, Dhenkanal, and Talcher in Odisha. Head (Retail) East, Eastern Region, Debashis Naik, inaugurated these plants from Bhubaneswar.
MAK AdBlue is used in vehicles with Selective Catalytic Reduction technology to lower the harmful gases from being emitted into the atmosphere.
January 2021: Stamicarbon participated in INITIATE/innovative industrial transformation of the steel and chemical industries of Europe project, wherein the key objective is to achieve environmental targets to cut down the massive toxic footprint generated during urea production. The project’s short-term aim focuses on site-specific pre-FEED to produce urea grade ideal for AdBlue and liquid fertilizers at 150 tpd capacity of urea.
May 2020: AdBlue manufacturer Yara selected Suttons Tankers to distribute its Air1 product from sites in Scunthorpe, Immingham, Tilbury, Widnes and Gretna. For their fleet, this new alliance with Suttons sees a drop in mileage. Not only does this lower costs, but it also increases consumer experience and has a favourable effect on their carbon footprint.
April 2020: AST Plastic Containers, a North Wales-based plastic bottle maker, secured a deal with AdBlue, an exhaust fluid intended to reduce the toxic emissions of nitrogen oxide (NOx) from diesel cars, for its 10 litre jerry cans. The 10 litre jerrycans of AST are built with an incorporated flexible spout contained inside the side wall of the container to enable the AdBlue tank of a vehicle to be quickly topped up.
December 2020: GreenChem, one of Europe’s biggest AdBlue developers and distributors, has installed 249 dual units in various service stations in Spain. The company’s primary focus is on installing dual bulk AdBlue supply equipment for light as well as heavy vehicles, and has over 20 AdBlue manufacturing units Europe along with Brazil.
