Europe Alkylation Market

Europe Alkylation Market Analysis and Size

The Europe alkylation market is expected to grow significantly in the forecast period of 2023 to 2040. Data Bridge Market Research analyses that the market is growing with a CAGR of 3.2% in the forecast period of 2023 to 2040 and is expected to reach USD 777,562.52 thousand by 2040. The major factor driving the growth of the alkylation market is the rise in demand for highly efficient gasoline.Europe Alkylation MarketEurope Alkylation Market

Reacting olefins with an isoparaffin to create higher molecular weight paraffin is known as alkylation and is commonly used in the petroleum refining business. In particular, the method produces branched-chain paraffin in the gasoline boiling range by reacting propylene and butylenes with isobutane. Alkylate has high octane ratings and low sensitivity, making it a premium petrol blending stock.

Market Definition

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. Sulphuric acid and hydrofluoric acid are the most used alkylation catalysts.

Europe Alkylation Market Dynamics

This section deals with understanding the market drivers, opportunities, restraints, and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail as below:

Drivers

  • 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 Europe scale, which is driving up automotive sales worldwide. Most automobiles are built around an internal combustion engine that only runs on diesel or gasoline. Therefore, the gasoline demand is increasing significantly, and powertrains based on combustion engines will continue to dominate for the foreseeable future.

  • Application growth of derivatives, namely gasoline, and lubricants

There are several refinery products generated from crude oil in petroleum refining. Alkylation is a secondary refinery unit process that numerous refineries worldwide use to add high-octane hydrocarbons to motor and aviation gasoline. It is the process of adding alkyl groups to a substrate molecule and is helpful in several applications. Alkylation produces high-octane gasoline by turning isoparaffins and low-molecular-weight alkenes into alkylate. High-octane hydrocarbons are required to avoid gasoline auto-ignition (knocking) in an engine and fulfill engine octane standards.

Opportunities

  • Implementation of investment-friendly policies in countries, namely China and India

Alkylation has become an essential refinery process with the increased need for high-octane and low-vapor-pressure gasoline blending components. It will be much more important in satisfying the government's stringent laws and requirements. Commercial and regulatory pressure refiners to utilize safe and sustainable techniques to provide clean-burning, environmentally friendly fuels. Thus, established refinery firms in the alkylation market may take advantage of this opportunity to spend more on new production capacities. In contrast, new entrants can invest more in incorporating alkylation units to contribute to the industry's growth.

  • Technological advancement to improvise alkylation processes

Long-term Europe demand for high-quality gasoline is driven by macro factors such as a continually rising customer base and the advent of high-compression engines requiring low vapor pressure. Simultaneously, stricter fuel and emissions criteria, such as low-sulfur or ultra-low-sulfur content demands, increase dependence on octane-boosting blending stocks, like alkylate. Refineries utilize several technologies to create alkylate, and all refineries must use an innovative, safe, and sustainable alkylation technique. 

Restraints/Challenges

  • Safety concerns related to the use of alkylation technology

The acid-based alkylation technology converts mixed olefin feedstock into high-octane alkylates for gasoline blending using hydrogen fluoride or sulfuric acid as the catalyst. However, the highly corrosive nature of the strong acid catalysts makes both the hydrogen fluoride and sulfuric acid alkylation reactions dangerous. The refiners using acid-based alkylation technology use various metals for equipment for alkylation technology and also require high-cost safety systems to protect refinery employees, infrastructure, and the outer environment. The operators and owners are highly concerned about the safety of the alkylation process and regularly monitor their units' safety. However, as every industrial process has risks, the alkylation process will likely face potential safety concerns. 

  • Environmental issues associated with alkylation technology

Alkylate is produced through alkylation technology from light olefins and isobutene in the presence of chemical-based catalysts. It is essential for producing gasoline, so various environmental issues are associated with alkylation technology. Alkylate manufacturing requires the utilization of liquid acid-catalyzed processes, for example, hydrofluoric acid or sulfuric acid chemical catalysts. The catalysts are unsafe, corrosive, and toxic in nature. The temperature rises, and the air vapor volume increases when hydrofluoric acid comes into contact with water. Spilled hydrofluoric acid evaporates quickly, but some remain in the soil environment and can severely impact the soil quality and groundwater.

Recent Development

  • In June 2021, Sinopec successfully launched two more STRATCO alkylation specialized 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 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
