Analysis of COVID-19 Crisis-driven Growth Opportunities in MTBE Market

Methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) is an octane booster. It is widely used in fuel for gasoline operated engines and as an anti-knocking agent. The applications are fuelling the demand for MTBE in the market.  Also, it is used in the generation of pure form of isobutene.

On the other hand, ethanol is being used as an alternative of MTBE as an oxygenate additive. This helps in decreasing the toxicity due to exhaust emissions. Moreover, USA and Canada are banning the use of MTBE for purpose of gasoline blending. These factors are hindering the growth of MTBE market. Advancement in bio-based MTBE is expected to provide lucrative opportunities for expansion of MTBE market.

Global Gasoline-Naphtha-Crude-MTBE Market: Overview

The global gasoline-naphtha-crude-MTBE market is witnessing an exponential surge in its valuation, thanks to the swift expansion in the automotive and the aviation industries and the trend is likely to remain so over the next few years.

Gasoline, also known as petrol, is a type of fuel, widely utilized in internal combustion engines, whereas crude is the unprocessed form of petroleum. Flammable liquid hydrocarbon mixtures are termed as naphtha while MTBE is a gasoline additive, which is volatile, highly flammable, and colorless. Although it exists in a liquid form, it is sparingly soluble in water. The main application of MTBE is to increase octane number, and hence, it is mostly used as oxygenate in order to raise the oxygen content of gasoline.
