Rise in Demand for High-Efficient Gasoline Will Drive the Market Growth

Alkylation produces longer-branched hydrocarbons from alkylating olefins such as propylene, butylene, and isobutene. The high octane hydrocarbons produced by alkylation are known as alkylates. Blending these alkylate with gasoline was introduced to improve the machinery's performance efficacy. The main factor that impacts the alkylation is using a suitable catalyst. The most used alkylation catalysts are sulphuric acid and hydrofluoric acid.

Key Findings of the Study

Alkylation Market

RISE IN DEMAND FOR HIGHLY EFFICIENT GASOLINE

The automobile sector, an important economic indicator, is on the cusp of new technology and developments. Furthermore, customers' need for distinctive and expensive features is driving the automotive sector in the present period. Today's consumers employ all-purpose vehicles on a global scale, which is driving up automotive sales worldwide. Most automobiles are built around an internal combustion engine that only runs on diesel or gasoline.  Thus, the gasoline demand is increasing significantly. Powertrains based on combustion engines will continue to dominate for the foreseeable future.

Segment Analysis:

The global alkylation market is segmented into three notable segments, production process, application, and end use.

  • On the basis of production process, the market is segmented into sulfuric acid alkylation, hydrofluoric acid alkylation, and others.  In 2023, sulfuric acid alkylation is expected to dominate the market with 49.41% as it is beneficial to the generation of main alkylation products and can improve the octane number of products.

In 2023, the automobile segment of end use segment is expected to dominate the alkylation market due to its high octane and low sulfur

In 2023, the automobile is expected to dominate the market with a 70.54% market share due to its high octane and low sulfur. It has zero aromatics, which helps to lower vehicle emissions and tailpipe pollution. Critically, alkylate also has low measures of fuel volatility and evaporative emissions.

  • On the basis of end-use, the market is segmented into aviation, automobile, agriculture, industrial, and others. In 2023, the automobile is expected to dominate the market with a 70.54% market share.

In 2023, the gasoline segment of application segment is expected to dominate the alkylation market

  • On the basis of application, the market is segmented into gasoline, motor oil, aviation turbine fuel, lubricants (excluding automotive engine oil), and others. In 2023, gasoline is expected to dominate the market with a 42.00% share.

Market Development

  • In March 2023, CVR Energy, Inc. has authorized the next phase of the overhaul of the alkylation unit at its subsidiary's crude oil refinery in Oklahoma, according to KBR Inc. This phase includes completing KBR's Solid Acid Alkylation (K-SAATTM) engineering, design, module production, and construction. With the ExSactTM catalyst, the company will be able to maximize the yield and quality of an ultra-clean gasoline blendstock.
  • In March 2023, ExxonMobil announced the successful start-up of its Beaumont refinery expansion project, which will increase the capacity of one of the biggest petrochemical and refining complexes on the American Gulf Coast by 250,000 barrels per day. The greatest refinery expansion in more than ten years is supported by the company's rising crude production in the Permian Basin, which will assist in meeting the rising need for affordable and dependable energy. The Beaumont refinery, where the company produces finished products including diesel, petrol, and jet fuel through the Permian crude oil.
  • In February 2022, Honeywell UOP announced that Tüpras has chosen to use ISOALKY technology to create high-quality alkylate at the Tüpraş refineries, making the Turkish business the latest to switch to the new liquid alkylation process to meet customer demand for cleaner-burning fuels. This project will enable Tupras to generate high-quality gasoline, essential for bringing greener gasoline to the market.
  • In June 2021, Sinopec successfully launched two more STRATCO® alkylation technical units from Elessent Clean Technologies Inc. The company is expanding its alkylation capacity by adding a fifth and sixth STRATCO alkylation unit to its refining network.
  • In July 2020, Sulzer Ltd Chemtech has been chosen as the only provider of mass transfer technology for Nigeria's Dangote integrated oil refinery and petrochemical complex. The units comprise a residue fluid catalytic cracker, a mild hydrocracker, alkylation, naphtha hydrofining, and continuous catalytic reforming to manufacture Euro V gasoline and diesel. This enables the organization to strengthen its worldwide capabilities and commitment to exceeding expectations.
