Fuel/Petroleum Dyes & Markers Market, Spurred by Favorable Government Initiatives & Growing Latin America Demand, Expected to Register Strong Growth Till 2021. Crucial to Stop the Black Art of Fuel Laundering

– Advertising –

Fuel/Petroleum Dyes & Markers Market spurred by governments adding dyes to the fuel in order to test for legal usage is expected to curb fuel laundering with the help of fuel marking with use of fuel/petroleum dyes & markers and is expected to grow rapidly.

Fuel/petroleum dyes are colored aromatic liquids, powders or solvent blended compounds that are added to petroleum and gasoline to generate coloured fuel. Fuel/Petroleum Dyes & Markers are colorless substances added to fuels to achieve coloured fuel and can be detected by adding specific reagent to produce color or by placing the sample in a spectrophotometer in order to produce a quantitative result.

The most common fuel/petroleum dyes are alkyl dyes and azo dyes.

This is where fuel/petroleum dyes come in handy and this is ultimately increasing the demand for the Fuel/Petroleum Dyes & Markers Market.

For example, a commonly used fuel worldwide in road vehicles, the military, on boats and maritime vessels, construction vehicles and machinery as well as many others because of its versatility, is diesel. Diesel fuel is used in some off-road applications whereby the duty paid on it isn’t the same as road diesel when diesel fuel was sold without any dyes added to it.

To combat this problem, the government now mandates this fuel to be sold with different colors: Clear, red, and blue. Red dyed diesel fuel is now commonly available to the public for non-automobile use and is taxed less.

This initiative aims to to clean the air and collect fuel taxes. The difference between red and clear diesel is the presence of color of fuel and presence of fuel/petroleum dyes & markers that prevent diesel laundering of the red dyed fuel which is often mixed with clear diesel to reduce costs.

This is a key growth driver that drives demand for products of the Fuel/Petroleum Dyes & Markers Market.

Most dyed fuel in the U.S. comes is red and is not generally available to the public. This dyed gasoline is only for use in off-road vehicles, such as farm tractors, heavy construction equipment, and generators.

This colored fuel is not taxed within the country and is usually laundered.
