Category Drivers

Several industries, such as transportation and petroleum refineries are rapidly increasing their need for energy across the globe. Hence, a huge amount of transportation activities, a rising volume of modes of transportation, and the concerning effectiveness of energy are propelling the demand for transportation energy.

Owing to issues like shortage of substitute fuels such as biofuels and elevated biofuel manufacturing costs, technology restraints for battery-operated electric vehicles, and the cost of batteries, the transportation segment consumes 80% and above of the total fuel oil that is utilised by all end-user industries.

Moreover, increasing consumer spending power due to growing per capita income in developing countries like India, Korea, and Thailand is projected to encourage the further consumption of energy. This rising demand for fuel in the transportation sector will substantially is adding to the growth of the global fuel oil market.

Category Insight by Region

The Asia Pacific region has the biggest oil refining capability in the world, with China and India being the leading countries in the region. The market is estimated to expand owing to the increasing transportation industry in prominent countries, in which SUVs and trucks hold a large part of the automotive market. Along with this new refining, components are concentrated in places specifically in the Asia Pacific region, where the demand need is growing.
