Diesel Exhaust Fluid Market Overview


According to the latest research report, the global Diesel Exhaust Fluid market size is expected to increase at a steady pace between 2022 and 2030. By the end of 2028, the business will grow at a CAGR of 8.4 per cent to reach approximately USD 30,643.9 million. Defined as Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF), this fluid is used to lessen the amount of air pollution produced by diesel engines. In addition to AdBlue, it's sold under AUS 32 and ARLA 32. An aqueous phase of 32.5 per cent urea and 67.5 per cent deionized water, known as DEF or AdBlue, is used in the automotive industry. In addition, dehydrogenated ethanol is required to run an incorporated SCR technology in heavy truck motors and off-road engine to fulfil rigorous Nitrogen oxide requirements.


Vehicles equipped with SCR technology need an additional tank to hold AdBlue for refuelling. The SCR system breaks down DEF into ammonia and carbon dioxide once introduced into the flue gases. During the NOx-to-nitrogen-to-water reaction in the catalytic converter, the engine exhaust's damaging NOx molecules are transformed to non-toxic nitrogen and molecules of water. Diesel engines typically need around 3percentage DEF in their fuel. Maritime, automobile, and aerospace end-use sectors' growing need for diesel exhaust fluid could help fuel demand for this product's expansion globally. GHG emission restrictions and a rise in quantity demanded in the automotive sector also drive the market's development.


This report contains all the information on the global Diesel Exhaust Fluid market analysis and the market strengths. In addition, the report also includes the culmination of dynamics, segmentation, key players, regional analysis, and other essential factors. And a detailed analysis of the global Diesel Exhaust Fluid market forecast for 2030 is also included in the report.


Covid 19 Analysis


Automotive output, vehicle kilometres, and vehicle sales were all negatively affected by the COVID-19 epidemic. Although lockdowns have been removed, the distribution network, labour accessibility, and official preventative measures mean that car sales and manufacturing are not anticipated to return to normal immediately. In this situation, an epidemic of COVID-19 might have a modest effect on the diesel exhaust fluid industry.


Market Dynamic



  • Drivers


In the DEF market, variables such as the growing mean lifespan of cars, improved facilities, an uptick in the number of cars on the road, an increase in the mean amount of miles travelled, longer DEF replacement intervals, and more awareness about vehicle repairs all affect demand.



  • Opportunities


The building business is increasing, with housing being a significant component. There has been substantial economic growth in Asian and American nations. As the populace and quality of living increase, more people move to metropolitan regions and invest more in the property. During the projection timeframe, the increasing adoption of diesel exhaust fluid in the construction equipment category will likely provide a significant potential for the diesel exhaust fluid industry.



  • Restraints


Furthermore, the changing costs of raw materials like urea and the rising demand for electric cars throughout the world are expected to have a negative impact on the worldwide AdBlue market over the forecast timeframe.



  • Challenges


Crops are sown in the northern hemisphere during the start of the year in many nations. Because of this, urea costs are on the rise. When the winter crops are ready to be harvested, the cost of urea drops. Plantations boost the need for urea in agricultural. This causes urea prices to rise at the start of the year.



  • Cumulative Growth Analysis


AdBlue production has been fostered by the considerable rivalry among the participants and the simple manufacturing method, which allows even small-scale producers to adhere to the German Association of the Automotive Industry's criteria. AdBlue-required automobiles are manufactured using a variety of methods and techniques. While some companies have tried to preserve their place in the global diesel exhaust fluid market outlook, others have tried to expand their geographical scope. Just Yara has increased its manufacturing capability in recent years, from 2017 to 2019. Although some firms plan to invest and develop in the next several years, others aren't so sure.



  • Value Chain Analysis


According to region and technology, there are two distinct diesel exhaust fluid. Diesel exhaust fluid market and certain other pollution control technologies, including EGR, lean NOx traps, and diesel oxidation catalysts, have been classified into the worldwide market for the worldwide diesel exhaust fluid market by technology. More than 8.0 per cent CAGR has been anticipated for the diesel exhaust fluid industry. When a diesel engine emits pollutants, the DEF fluid helps clean the air.


In addition to AUS 32 and ARLA 32, the product is offered under the brand name AdBlue. 32.5 per cent urea and 67.5 per cent deionized water are used to make DEF or AdBlue, an aquatic urea solution. In addition, lean NOx traps, diesel oxidation catalysts, exhaust gas recirculation, and others fall under alternative emission control technologies. More than 45.0 per cent of the market is expected to be accounted for by the LNT sector, which is worth roughly USD 55.0 billion in 2018.


Segmentation Overview


The market is segmented based on the region and technology. As a result, the global diesel exhaust fluid market trends are expected to witness decent growth during the forecast period.


By Application


The market is segmented into Bulk Storage Tank, Dispenser, Portable Containers and By Application Vehicular, Non-vehicular.


By end-users


The market is segmented into vehicular and non-vehicular based on the propulsion types.


Regional Analysis


On the basis of geography, the Global Diesel Exhaust Fluid (Adblue) Market has been segmented into the following segments: Asia-Pacific; Europe; North America; Latin American; Middle East & Africa. A robust CAGR of moreover 8.5percent is expected in the Asia-Pacific region during the projected timeframe, where the market is expected to have the greatest share of 35percent in 2018. Furthermore, due to stricter emission laws in large economies, such as India, China, and Indonesia, there has been an increase in traffic accidents. Therefore, to fulfil both global and local emission regulations, there is likely to be a significant increase in demand for different pollution control technology in this area.


Competitive landscape


Several international, regional, and local companies sell diesel exhaust fluid on the worldwide market. All participants in the industry are vying for the most significant possible share of the market. The need for AdBlue is being driven up by various causes, including advances in catalytic innovation, periodic regulatory changes, and an expanding range of applications in the automobile, farming, heavy commercial, and other industries that use diesel power. Vendors compete on price, quality control, and brand reputation. AdBlue must be cost-effective and high-quality to participate as a worldwide Diesel Exhaust Fluid market share.
