The Isooctane Market segmented By Product Type, Application, And Region/Country

Isooctane Market By Product Type (Gasoline Blending, Organic Synthesis) By Application (Organic Solvent, Diluent) And Region - Global Forecast 2026

Global Isooctane Market: Introduction

Isooctane is used as anti-knocking agents in fuel additives applications owing to its higher octane rating. Gasoline is a liquid mixture of aliphatic hydrocarbons, which is derived from fractional distillation of petroleum. Fractional distillation of petroleum is combined with additives such as isooctane and aromatic hydrocarbons as it helps to boost the octane rating of gasoline and prevents engines from ‘knocking’. The global Isooctane Market is estimated to value at approximately US$ 99 Bn in 2019, and is expected to register a CAGR of 2.1%.

Global Isooctane Market: Dynamics

Growing usage of isooctane as an anti-knocking additives in gasoline is a major factor driving growth of the global isooctane market. These compounds are added to improve quality and efficiency of fuels, and are commonly used in gasoline engines. In addition, additives are added in fuel to increase knock resistance and help to prevent air-fuel mixture from self-igniting while in the engines.

Growing preference for isooctane additives over methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE) is another factor supporting growth of the target market. Methyl tert-butyl ether, which is an organic compound with volatile, flammable, and colorless liquid is responsible for considerable soil and groundwater contamination. Increasing conversion of methyl tert-butyl ether facilities to isooctane production facilities in order to prevent groundwater contamination is another factor fueling growth of the global market.

Increasing use of renewable sources such as bio-isobutene for production of isooctane additives is another factor anticipated fuel growth of the global isooctane market in the near future. In addition, isooctane manufacturing companies also increasing production of these renewable sources in order to reduce harmful impact on environment caused by emission is a factor supporting growth of the target market.
