Market Brief:

According to Reports and Insights analysis, the global fuel marker market is expected to register a revenue CAGR of 4.6% during the forecast period. A fuel marker, also known as a fuel dye or fuel tracer, is a chemical substance added to fuels such as petroleum and diesel to help identify and differentiate them. While being typically invisible, the markers once added to fuel or the fuel is ‘chemically stamped’, the markers are difficult to remove, but can be detected using portable gas chromatography-mass spectrometry instruments or detected in a laboratory. Some markers however, such as the Euromarker, are not completely resistant to laundering, and criminals quickly develop new methods for removing them.

There are differences between fuel markers and petroleum markers and dyes. Fuel markers are substances, when added to fuels are detected by adding a specific reagent. Petroleum dyes on the other hand impart a permanent color to fuels, and these as well as markers are being increasingly used and added to identify fuel and prevent fuel theft.

Major purposes for such markers being mandatory include tax enforcement, quality control, and fraud prevention. For tax enforcement for instance, governments use fuel markers to distinguish between taxed and untaxed fuels. By adding a specific marker to taxed fuels, authorities can easily determine whether the correct taxes have been paid when inspecting fuel supplies. Quality control also entails the use of fuel markers to ensure the quality and safety of fuels, and different markers may be added to distinguish between various grades of fuel or to ascertain the presence of contaminants. Fuel adulteration prevention is a major application and markers are used to combat fuel adulteration, where lower-quality or cheaper substances are mixed with fuels to increase volume or profits. Adding a marker that is difficult to replicate or remove enables authorities to detect such adulteration more easily. Also, supply chain security is a key area of application and fuel markers can be used to track fuel along routes, helping to maintain fuel integrity, prevent theft, diversion, adulteration, or counterfeiting.

Increasing instances of fuel fraud, regulatory mandates for fuel quality assurance, and advancements in detection technologies are key factors driving rising demand for fuel markers, making them indispensable tools in the fight against fuel adulteration. The advantages of fuel markers include easy, quick, and quantifiable detection, and this is possible on the roadside while checking consignments or in the laboratory. Most markers are resistant to known criminal fuel laundering techniques, the market liquid is in concentrate form and easy to use, and is stable in fuels and compatible with common fuel additives, among other benefits.

The global fuel marker market is registering consistent revenue growth due to high demand for petrol and diesel globally, and need to combat fuel adulteration and tax evasion. Perpetually high demand is a key factor resulting in criminal and fraudulent practices in the oil and gas industry, as price volatility and fuel shortages continue due to unstable geopolitical situations, civil wars, and regional disputes and conflict, coupled with government sanctions, and supply chain disruptions. These factors are also resulting in increasing instances of fuel adulation, smuggling, diversion, illicit trade, hoarding, and black-market sales.

The Ukraine-Russia conflict has been having a significant impact on the petroleum industry since Ukrainian autonomous republic of Crimea was invaded in February 2014 by Russia. The conflict kept simmering as Donbas region was captured in April that year. However, the war escalated on 24 February 2022, when Russia invaded Ukraine, but between 2020 and 2023 major changes have been ongoing. The war has led to a sharp increase in energy prices and significant volatility in energy markets, crude oil and petroleum product prices soared by 51%2, cost of natural gas rose by 94%2, further resulting in global household energy costs rise of between 62.6% and 112.9%2. The price of crude oil in the global market skyrocketed from around USD 76 per barrel at the start of January 2022 to over USD 110 per barrel on 4 March 2022. Also, Europe imposed a ban on Russian diesel and other oil products.

However, going by statistics from US Energy Information Administration (EIA), this conflict has not resulted in reduced usage and consumption of gasoline or petroleum, and in 2022, approximately 135 billion gallons (or around 3.22 billion barrels) of finished motor gasoline were consumed in the United States alone, which translates to an average of around 370 million gallons per day (or approx. 8.81 million barrels per day). According to EIA estimates for US, demand for the motor fuel is expected to fall to around 8.12 million barrels per day in 2030 going by the reference in case scenario. Also, depending on oil prices, policy changes, economic growth and EV sales, demand could range anywhere between 7.85 million barrels per day and 8.57 million barrels per day. This estimated reduction can be attributed to EVs gaining traction, and focus on ‘other energy’ powered vehicles, and initiatives to shift away from fossil fuels.

All fuels typically contain fuel marker and dyes to differentiate quality and source for various reasons. Fraud primarily happens in the form of dilution of taxed fuels with other tax-free or low tax products and this can include fuel smuggled or illegally brought in from a neighboring country where fuel is cheaper, or by criminal elements adding a low-cost solvent. Each year, an estimated USD 134 billion in fuel is illegally diverted or traded, adulterated, or defrauded from legitimate petroleum companies. In the EU each year, between USD 7 billion (Euro 7.48 billion) to USD 10 Billion (Euro 10.68 billion) are lost to fuel fraud, and entails criminals removing government fuel markers in fuel allocated for lower-taxed essential uses, and selling for higher-taxed uses.

Another key factor driving demand for fuel markers is need to ensure compliance with stringent environmental and regulatory standards, and this requires deployment of effective fuel marking strategies. However, it is noteworthy to mention that over 10 alternative fuels are in phases of testing, production, or development for use in alternative fuel vehicles and others with advanced technologies. These initiatives are driven by rising environmental concerns and increasing focus on alternative and more eco-friendly fuels for energy and transportation. The initiatives currently in pipeline are for target vehicles and primary use of these fuels is slated for government and private-sector fleets. The US is focused keenly on developments in alternative fuels including electricity and advanced vehicles and not on conventional fuels and vehicles. This is to enable conservation of petroleum and resources and reducing vehicle emissions.
