Synthetic Fuel Market Insights

Synthetic Fuel Market was valued at USD 4.1 billion in 2019, and it is expected to reach a value of USD 20.84 billion by 2031, at a CAGR of more than 26.15% over the forecast period (2024-2031).

Fuels that are synthetic, or "carbon-neutral," collect CO2 during production. In this method, this greenhouse gas is transformed into a raw material from which power from renewable sources can be used to manufacture gasoline, diesel, and replacement natural gas. The ability to continue using the existing network of filling stations is another significant benefit of combustion engines that run on synthetic fuels. The same is true of the current combustion-engine knowledge. Furthermore, the creation of alternative fuels may be beneficial even though electric vehicles will become substantially less expensive in the next years. Depending on the type of renewable energy utilized, Bosch has estimated that the total cost of ownership of a hybrid-powered by synthetic fuel, up to a lifetime mileage of 160,000 kilometers, might be less than that of a long-range electric vehicle.

US Synthetic Fuel Market is poised to grow at a sustainable CAGR for the next forecast year.

Synthetic Fuel Market Segmental Analysis

The Global Synthetic Fuel Market is segmented based on the Type, and region. Based on the Type, the Global Synthetic Fuel Market is segmented as Extra-Heavy Oils, Shale Oil, Liquid To Gas Fuels, and Other. Based on Region Synthetic Fuel Market is categorized into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and MEA.

Synthetic Fuel Market Analysis by Type

Based on the Type, the Synthetic Fuel market is bifurcated into extra-heavy oils, shale oil, liquid to gas fuels, and other. The market share that belongs to extra-heavy oils is the largest contributor at more than 27%. Methane-rich gases are converted into liquid synthetic fuels via syngas as an intermediate, for example using the Fischer Tropsch or Mobil processes. The commercial-scale shale oil production is progressing, and commercial facilities are expected to be operational. Because of completed and ongoing development work, the risks involved with transitioning to commercial-scale operation are likely manageable, while risks are never negotiable when commercializing systems for handling solid feedstocks.

Synthetic Fuel Market Regional Insights

There are currently 10 functioning e-fuel projects for the manufacture of green ammonia and methanol, as well as synthetic jet fuel and diesel. The majority of capacity additions in the period 2022-2028 are predicted to be for green ammonia and green methanol. While Asia Pacific, particularly Australia, is likely to become a global leader in green ammonia production, Europe is expected to win the race in green methanol capacity expansions, accounting for more than 86% of total production. Green or e-methanol capacity is expected to stay relatively low when compared to bio methanol produced from waste biomass, owing to the latter's lower costs. E-gasoline, on the other hand, will be mostly produced in Chile, while e-kerosene and other transportation e-fuel manufacturing will be principally supported in Europe. The production of e-fuel will progressively rise, mostly in Europe, the Asia-Pacific region, and potentially in Chile at first. Due to the high energy density requirements, long-distance road transport, aviation, and shipping industries are expected to be the primary sources of e-fuel demand in the medium future, with most of this activity expected to occur in Europe.

Synthetic Fuel Market Dynamics

Synthetic Fuel Market Driver

  • Reduced production costs, which are expected to follow the widespread deployment of variable renewable energy (VRE) sources and are the primary driving force behind cheaper green hydrogen production; and Utilization and monetization of excess renewable energy production, which is expected to increase with increasing supply, to lower the costs of green hydrogen production via electrolysis.
  • The chemical industry's demand for synthetic gas is increasing. This is because syngas is used to produce synthetic natural gas (SNG), which is used in the rail, marine, and road transportation industries as liquefied natural gas (LNG) and compressed natural gas (CNG) (CNG).

Synthetic Fuel Market Restraint

  • The capital cost of manufacturing plants as well as the cost of captured CO2 and hydrogen present a general obstacle to lowering the price of synthetic fuels. These choices are currently substantially more expensive than fossil-based kerosene combined with negative emission technology to mitigate the CO2 emissions, according to the UK TIMES and TIAM-UCL studies at current cost forecasts. For a better understanding of the risks associated with investing in these technologies, further techno-economic analysis is needed in order to understand the sensitivity of changing capital costs and input costs.

Their business is built on current facts and promising futures by identifying opportunities with other partners to support their plan.

Synthetic Fuel Market Top Player's Company Profiles

 Synthetic Fuel Market Recent Developments

  • In Jun 2022, Tokyo Gas, Japan's top city gas supplier, said on Friday (Jun 24) it has begun a pilot program of methanation, a technology to help de-carbonize city gas, and plans to use green hydrogen sourced from renewable energy for the trial by next March. Methanation converts hydrogen and carbon dioxide (CO2) into synthetic methane, an alternative for the main component in natural gas. It is considered a way of using CO2 as a raw material that could help the company achieve carbon neutrality in 2050
  • In June 2022, Uzbekistan has started producing synthetic fuel, including synthetic diesel, for the first time at its gas-to-liquids (GTL) plant. According to agreements, the first batch 5,000 tons of synthetic diesel will be sent to the Navoi Mining and Metallurgical Combine, Uzbekistan’s largest gold producer, it said. Uzbekistan launched its first GTL plant located in the Kashkadarya region

Synthetic Fuel Key Market Trends

  • Green hydrogen has the potential to greatly improve sustainability. It could be termed carbon-neutral because it is created using renewable energies. Similarly, burning hydrogen produces energy and water rather than greenhouse gas. Furthermore, hydrogen could aid in the storage of intermittent renewable energies, allowing for smoother energy delivery over longer time periods as well as between regions with ample renewable supply and locations with high energy demand.
  • To comply with existing climate targets, aviation must reduce its carbon emissions, which are high. Although de-carbonization of the industry is difficult, transitioning to low carbon synthetic jet fuels offers prospects. Understanding how synthetic fuels contribute to reducing global warming can be done with the use of energy system models.
