“Stringent emission regulations worldwide drives the automotive aftermarket fuel additives market”
The global market of the automotive aftermarket fuel additives is estimated to reach USD 1,387.0 million by 2021 at a CAGR of 7.15%. Governments all over the world are pressing harder for stringent environmental regulations. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has been regularly modifying and enforcing several norms for vehicular emissions and also for improving the efficiency and prevalent quality of the fuels used. For example, the Clean Air Act (CAA) of the U.S. is an exhaustive federal law which regulates air emissions from mobile and stationary sources. This law also authorizes the EPA to establish National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) to protect public welfare and health and also to regulate emissions of hazardous air pollutants. Also, the European Union (EU) framework has emission regulations for van trucks, coaches, buses and cars. For light duty vehicles (cars and vans), the current standard is Euro 6 while that for heavy vehicles, it is Euro VI.

Whereas, high R&D costs involved in terms of man hours, technology and materials hampers market growth. Moreover, the introduction of Alternative Fuel Vehicles (AFVs) such as electric cars prove a restraint for this market.
