Clean Diesel Market

Clean Diesel Market — Global Industry Insights, Trends,
Outlook and Opportunity Analysis, 2018–2026
Diesel is the world's most efficient internal combustion engine, which provides more power
and fuel efficiency than LPG and gasoline. Growing environmental concerns have resulted in
the formulation of government regulations, in turn compelling manufacturers to create
innovative methods used to meet emission standards. Clean diesel is a novel group of diesels,
which contains 97 percent less Sulphur, made up of unconventional engines and effective
emission control technology. Clean diesels are used on a large scale in transportation and to
power various equipment in the mining, construction, and agriculture sectors. Clean diesels
are cleaner, more fuel efficient, and offer more torque than other fuels. The clean diesel
market, however, faces major competition from its gasoline, hybrid, and electrical

Low diesel prices, government subsidies, stringent environmental regulations are major
drivers for growth of the clean diesel market. The major challenge faced by this market is the
production of nitrous oxide. Efforts are being made to cope with this issue by the
incorporation of advanced emission control technologies. One of the most notable
downsides is that diesel tends to cost more than gasoline engines.
Common rail systems supply high injection pressures available at an accumulator, directly to
the injector, thus providing better control, reduced emission, and better efficiency. Two
ULSD standards are available, namely Grade No. 1-D S15, which is a highly unstable fuel
with an lower gelling temperature than regular ULSD and Grade No. 2-D S15, which is
regular ULSD. Companies such as Clean Diesel Technologies (CDTI) develop catalyst
technologies and emissions control systems to meet the requirements of increasingly stringent
environmental regulations and decrease emissions.
The state-subsidized incorporation of vehicles by means of tax concessions led to a
significant increase in the proportion of diesel engines in privately owned vehicles in Europe.
Approximately 50 % cars in Europe run on ULSD. Europe has been the frontrunner on
regulations for low-sulfur and clean transportation fuels. The use of ULSD combined with the
presence of major car manufactures in Europe, are expected to lead to technological
advancements in the clean diesel market.
Clean diesel fuel containing 97 percent less sulfur has been used for both, on-highway and
off-highway diesel engines in the U.S., since 2006. Even though the amount of commercial
diesel vehicles used in the U.S. is low, there are wide range of industries such as mining,
agriculture, and construction that depend on diesel for their operations. Hence, incorporating
efficient use of clean diesel is expected to help boost the clean diesel market in North
Diesel usage is prevalent particularly in the growing economies of Asia such as China, India,
and Southeast Asia. Hong Kong, introduced clean diesel in July 2000, was the first city in
Asia to introduce this advanced type of diesel to its local market. Countries such as Japan,
Taiwan, China, and India have all begun the use of ULSD. As Asia comprises of a number of
developing nations, the clean diesel market has the maximum potential to grow in Asia.
Saudi Arabia and Kuwait are frontrunners in the clean diesel project in the Middle East. To
fulfil the obligatory sulfur specifications for diesel, Saudi Arabia is spending billions of
dollars to construct multiple clean diesel projects. As the Middle East is a major exporter of
petroleum products, it is expected to be a major clean diesel producer with the help of
technology and capital.
In Africa fewer countries have adopted low-sulfur fuel regulations. South Africa plans to
initiate Clean Fuels Program 2 (CF2), which is expected to be fully commissioned by 2020,
with an aim to develop diesel containing 10 ppm or less amount of sulfur. The clean diesel
market in Africa is still developing.
As Latin American countries rely heavily on oil export revenues, the drop in fuel prices has
affected them greatly. As a result of which, the region does not have enough capital for
expansions and upgradesto produce clean diesel.
