Diesel Exhaust Fluid Market

Diesel Exhaust Fluid Market - Global Trends, and
Forecast till 2025
Diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) is an odorless, colorless, and non-flammable mixture of
32.5% urea and 67.5% deionized water. The standardized AUS 32 form is used as a
consumable in selective catalytic reduction (SCR) in order to lower Nitrous oxide
(NOx) concentration in the diesel exhaust emissions from diesel engines. DEF
vaporizes and decomposes into ammonia and carbon dioxide inside the exhaust
pipe that react with oxygen and detrimental nitrogen oxides inside the vehicle’s
selective catalytic reduction (SCR) catalyst. This results in production of nitrogen,
water vapor, and carbon dioxide. As the shelf life of DEF is directly related to the
temperature at which it is stored, special storage tanks made up of polyethylene
plastic or stainless steel are used to maintain its quality.

Stringent NOx emission regulations in regions such as North America, Europe, and
Asia Pacific is major factor propelling growth of the global DEF market. Moreover,
increasing demand for commercial vehicles fuelled by substantial growth of
automotive industry globally and technological advancement in selective catalytic
reduction technology such as implementation of catalytic converter, are driving
growth of the global DEF market. However, changing preference toward non-fossil
fuel engines such as electric cars and hybrid vehicles is expected to hinder growth of
the market. Moreover, changing government regulations about diesel vehicles in
order to reduce air pollution also restrains growth of the DEF market.
Among vehicle type, passenger vehicles is projected to be the fastest growing
segment over the forecast period. Most of the commercial vehicles are equipped with
the Selective Catalytic Reduction technology after implementation of EPA’s 2010
diesel emission standards. Moreover, favorable growth in passenger vehicle sales is
projected to create positive environment for market growth. According to European
Automobile Manufacturer’s Association, in November 2017, sales of passenger cars
in Europe grew by 5.9% year on year. Therefore, passenger vehicles segment
represents an immense opportunity for growth of diesel exhaust fluid.
North America accounted for highest market share in global diesel exhaust fluid
market in 2016 and the region is projected to maintain its dominance throughout the
forecast period. The growth of North America diesel exhaust fluid market is mainly
driven by stringent regulations of Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on
emission of diesel engine exhaust gases. In the U.S., emission from vehicles is
regulated by EPA’s Clean Air Act. EPA sets a limit of 0.20 grams emitted per brake
horsepower-hour (g/bhp-hr). Moreover, EPA has set a minimum fluid interval of 4000
miles for light duty vehicles and light duty trucks. Such factors are playing important
role for North America market growth.
According to Coherent Market Insights study, the global diesel exhaust fluid market
was valued at US$ 10.96 billion in 2016 and is projected to reach to US$ 24.90
