Global Diesel Exhaust Fluid Market, by Application (Heavy Duty Vehicle, Commercial Vehicle, Passenge

Published Date: | Report Code : CH194957


The Diesel Exhaust Fluid Market is expected to promise high growth owing to the increasing demand for commercial and heavy vehicles in recent years. Increasing demand from major application including such as heavy duty vehicle, commercial vehicle, passenger vehicle, light duty vehicle is expected to drive the growth of the market. 

Diesel Exhaust Fluid is colorless, odorless and a non-flammable mixture of different fluids such as 32.5% carbamide and 67.5% deionized water. It lowers the nitrox oxide concentration within the diesel exhaust which comes from the engine. The DEF fluid vaporizes into ammonia and carbon dioxide inside the exhaust pipes of the diesel vehicles. It reacts with oxygen and harmful nitrogen oxides inside the vehicle’s selective catalytic reduction catalyst (SCR). The fluid is stored in a specially made tank in a vehicle that is made by polyethylene plastic and stainless steel to maintain its quality.

In today’s world of rapid industrialization and increasing infrastructure, there is a significant growth in the heavy-duty vehicle which is run by diesel. The majority of the commercial vehicles and Heavy duty vehicles are now manufactured with the selective catalytic reduction catalyst (SCR) due to the implementation of EPA’s 2010 diesel Emission standards. Also, there are strict no emissions regulations in regions like North America and Europe. All these factors have significantly increased the demand for the DEF in the market. 

Some of the key Impact Factors:

  • Rapid industrialization and increasing infrastructure to boost the DEF market
  • An increasing need for commercial and heavy vehicles
