Which Factors are Hampering the Growth in No.2 Diesel Fuel Market?

Rising environmental concerns such as emission of carbon monoxide is compelling consumers to prefer renewable sources of energy and electric vehicles. Hence, rising demand for  alternative fuel source is expected to restrain the growth in the market.

Also, noise generated by the diesel engines is anticipated to reduce the usage of No.2 diesel fuel, which will limit the sales during the assessment period.

Furthermore, high viscosity of the No.2 diesel fuel reduces its application in cold temperatures, leading to ignition problems, which might have a negative impact on sales.

Will Asia Pacific Emerge as an Attractive Pocket in the No.2 Diesel Fuel Market?

As per the study, Asia Pacific is projected to witness high demand for No.2 diesel amid ongoing advancements in industrial and infrastructural sectors.

Increasing environmental pollution in the region is boosting the adoption of low sulfur diesel fuels. This is anticipated to contribute to the growth in the market.

Furthermore, increasing sales in the automotive sector, along with growing applications of crude oil and refined products in developing countries such as China and India will continue spurring demand for No.2 diesel in the region.
