India Adblue (Diesel
Exhaust Fuel) Market size- Industry Trends & Outlook Report 2027
India Diesel Exhaust
Fluid (Adblue) market was appraised at USD 955 mn in 2017, and it is expected
to reach at USD 1,234.4 mn by 2027 with a CAGR of 2.8% during upcoming period.
Upgraded infrastructure, progressive industrialization and increased demand for
heavy-duty vehicles have provided a significant impetus to the AdBlue market in
India. Besides, the low cost of manufacturing and increased adoption of Adblue
in farm machinery have also driven agro-oriented Indian Adblue Market. The
Adblue is widely used agricultural machinery such as tractors, pumps, and
harvesters increasing demand for the same in farms. Moreover, its beneficial
role in minimizing harmful gas emissions is projected to offer lucrative
business opportunities during the projection time.
India Adblue (Diesel
Exhaust Fuel) Market Overview:
AdBlue is a diesel
exhaust fluid used in vehicles with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR)
technology to control the release of harmful gases into the atmosphere. AdBlue
contains 32.5% solution of high-purity, synthetically manufactured urea in
de-mineralized water, and is a safe-to-use fluid. It is produced by is by
diluting urea prills in deionized water. Unfortunately, this method comes with
drawbacks, such as
Ø AdBlue® quality not conforming to ISO 22241 due to high biuret
content in solid urea
Ø High production costs due to both finishing and blending steps –
Ø High emissions from urea plant due to the finishing step.
The VDA (German Automotive
Industry Association) owns the AdBlue® brand and manages producers through
licenses. The value of the AdBlue® brand lies in the high-quality assurance
provided by the producers. So, quality maintenance is the key.
India Adblue (Diesel
Exhaust Fuel) Market Outlook and Trends
A rise in Adoption of
Navigation System across Different End-Users
The stringent carbon
emission norms adopted by the government entities and the automotive
manufacturers and the increase in the sale of passenger cars and commercial
vehicles are the primary elements driving the growth of the market.
The rapidly growing
automotive industry combined with the development of hybrid selective
non-catalytic reduction (SNCR) and adoption of SCR technology in passenger
vehicles is likely to enhance the demand for fuel-efficient AdBlue lubricant and
create lucrative opportunities for the players operating in the market.
transportation needs to facilitate the movement of goods and growing population
has promoted the sales of heavy and medium-duty vehicles, which cause high
levels of air pollution. All such existing and new vehicles need to lower
carbon emissions as per the regulations and so, are more likely to adopt SCR
technology of Adblue.
Low Pollution & Cheap
NOx emissions are harmful
gases causing severe air pollution and are often condemned for acid rain and a
growing greenhouse effect. On the other hand, nitrogen and water are harmless
and can be safely discharged into the atmosphere. The focal task of diesel
exhaust fluid is to split nitrogen oxide (NOx) gases into nitrogen and water
and control harmful releases in climate.
Moreover, the superior
design of engines with SCR systems permits less wear and tear on the engine
during its useful life. Diesel Exhaust Fuel technology reduces the need for
maintenance and the probability of break down. It improves fuel efficiency and
A rise in Demand for
Increasing adoption of
electric vehicles helps conserve petroleum products, reduce global warming and
curb environmental pollution. Increasing pulmonary diseases due to polluted air
have induced government of India and China to design programs spreading
awareness regarding environmental pollution, its health impacts and the
possible remedies. The government has taken several initiatives to encourage the
usage and production of electric vehicles. And, electric car manufacturers
prefer using India Diesel Exhaust Fluid (AdBlue)s in vehicles due to the merits
such as low maintenance, higher efficiency, high operating speed, and quick
However, the growing
demand for electric vehicles across India is projected to impede the growth of
the India diesel exhaust fluid (AdBlue) market as it will result into less
demand for diesel and hence, less demand for diesel exhaust fluid (AdBlue).
Impact of COVID-19 in
The emergence of the
novel coronavirus infection that originated in Wuhan, China in December 2019
has resulted in a globally spread pandemic threatening public health
significantly in recent times. On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization
(WHO) declared Covid-19 a pandemic and has asked governments to take urgent and
aggressive actions to mitigate the outbreak.
The current outbreak of
the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has led to drastic changes across all
the industries, particularly the automotive sector. The onset of Covid-19 in
India will adversely affect the automotive industry, causing a revenue loss of
at least $1.5 -2.0 bn per month across the country. Even after Unlock-1 and 2,
further decline in passenger vehicles demand is expected with less
discretionary purchasing power. Besides, the transition to BS-VI norms will
also increase the cost of ownership of the automotive.
In India, the automotive
sector accounts for more than 60% of market share in Diesel exhaust fluid
(AdBlue) market. The decline in demand for automobiles as well as transport has
affected Diesel exhaust fluid market. But transportation for essential goods
enables the sustenance of the whole value chain and supports the demand for
Adblue to some extent.
However, the impact of
COVID on Diesel exhaust fluid (Adblue) varies depending on intensity, duration
and spread of the outbreak. All stakeholders in the value chain are affected
for short or medium-term with problems ranging from the shortage of raw
material, shifting of production to other countries, liquidity crunch to delays
in availability of models, deferred launches and shrinkage in consumer demand.
