  • Key Global Supplier Profile

 

The fuel oil market size is expected to decline at a CAGR of 4.08 percent by 2020. Health and environmental concerns related to the high sulfur content of residual fuel oil have led to new policies and regulations that have significantly lowered expectations for future residual fuel oil use globally. The share of the petrochemicals sector is forecast to increase from the current 13 percent to 15 percent by 2040.

The report provides an extensive fuel oil analysis of the key price drivers, supply-demand trends and trade dynamics of global fuel oil manufacturers in North America, Europe, APAC, LATAM, Africa and the Middle East. It further discusses Porter's Five Forces Analysis and presents a Fuel oil price forecast trends analysis in North America, Europe, APAC and LATAM regions. The report includes an in-depth study of the fuel oil companies such as ExxonMobil, Royal Dutch Shell, and British Petroleum along with their SWOT analysis.

Beroe gathers intelligence through primary sources that include industry experts, researchers, and consultants, as well as current suppliers, producers and distributors.

Fuel Oil Global Market Outlook

  • The global fuel oil supply stands at 6.574 Mbpd
  • The global fuel oil demand stands at 4.769 Mbpd
  • Demand is expected to drop at a CAGR of 4.08 percent until 2020

fuel-oil-global-market-sizeFuel Oil Demand Market Outlook 

  • IMO regulations will have the effect on prompting the switch among users from fuel oil to diesel
  • The electricity sector is moving away from fuel oil, and this is expected to lessen the demand of fuel oil
  • Large reductions in residual fuel oil demand are likely to occur from the decreased use of fuel oil for power generation and space heating
  • The shift from fuel oil-based heating in ships by 2020 is estimated to leave a vast amount of excess heavy fuel oil, which will be available, most likely at a hefty discount

Global Market Size - Fuel Oil 

  • The supply market size is expected to decline at a CAGR of 4.77 percent by 2020
  • Fuel oil is the only petroleum product, whose demand is expected to fall in the long term
  • Health and environmental concerns related to the high sulfur content of residual fuel oil have led to new policies and regulations that have significantly lowered expectations for future residual fuel oil use globally

Global Capacity–Demand Analysis 

  • The demand for HFO is forecast to decline over the next two years because of the trend toward greater use of natural gas for power generation
  • Regulations toward the use of cleaner fuels in the shipping industry will also bring down the demand for HFO
  • Refinery output for fuel oil is expected to decrease 4.08 percent between 2018 and 2020

Demand Outlook

  • Large reductions in residual fuel oil demand will likely come from decreased use of fuel oil for power generation and space heating
  • In the power sector, the cost of pollution controls, maintenance, and RFO heating often offset the lower cost of fuel oil when compared to natural gas and other more expensive fuels. Consequently, power sector demand for RFO, especially in industrialized countries, is expected to decrease.
  • Saudi Arabia has been one of the few countries that has increased its fuel oil intake, largely because they have realized how uneconomical it is to use their own crude oil for power use

Supply Outlook

  • New refining capacity is concentrated in locations, where demand is growing, notably the APAC
  • The supply is estimated to decrease, due to the lower demand in fuel oil. This is caused, mainly due to the stringent environmental policies that are being followed globally
  • IMO sets a 0.50 percent limit (maximum) of the sulphur content in respect of all fuel oils used by any type of combustion machinery outside Emission Control Areas from 1 st of January 2020, down from 3.50 percent m/m currently.

Global Demand by Application

  • Demand for light products and middle distillate is expected to grow, but residual fuel is set to decline
  • Bunker gas oil and low Sulfur fuel oil to replace high Sulfur fuel oil, due to IMO specifications for Sulfur content
  • IMO regulations call for global standards for Sulfur content in marine fuel to be tightened to 0.5 percent from 3.5 percent

Downstream Demand Outlook

  • IMO regulations will have an effect of prompting a switch among users from fuel oil to cleaner fuel.
  • Share of the petrochemicals sector is forecast to increase from 13 percent in 2017 to 15 percent in 2040
  • Residual fuel, as an energy source, is expected to lose weight, as it is expected to be replaced by natural gas as an alternative source of energy
  • The electricity sector moving away from fuel oil is expected to add downward pressure on the use of fuel oil
  • From January 2020, the limit for sulfur in fuel oil used on board ships operating outside designated emission control areas will be reduced to 0.50 percent m/m
  • The shift from fuel oil-based heating in ships by 2020 is estimated to leave a vast amount of excess heavy fuel oil, which will be available, most likely at a hefty discount

Cost Structure Analysis

  • Product costs include raw material cost, which is crude oil
  • The product costs also include refining costs that can be broken into equipment, maintenance, labor cost, etc.
  • Overhead costs include marketing cost, utility cost, employee cost
  • Other costs are taxes and regulatory compliance costs
  • Distribution costs include transportation and inventory carrying costs
  • Transportation costs are subject to increase with an increase in distance
  • Inventory costs keep increasing until the goods are sold
  • Slower economy in China, weak global demand for crude, and volatile decision by OPEC over production cuts are expected to reduce crude prices

Fuel Oil Market Frequently Asked Questions

  2. By 2020, it is expected that the fuel oil market will decline at a CAGR of 4.08 percent. According to the oil market data, new policies and regulations have emerged owing to the health and environmental concerns caused by the high sulfur content of residual fuel oil. This has resulted in significantly low expectations for the future of residual fuel use at the global level.

 

  1. What is the key forecast for the petrochemicals sector?
  2. Looking at the oil market trends and forecasts, the market share of the petrochemicals sector is likely to increase from the current 13 percent to 15 percent by 2040.  

 

  1. Who are the top global service providers in the fuel oil global market?
  2. The fuel oil global market is dominated by top global service providers like BP, Shell, ExxonMobil, Rosneft and Total.

 

  1. How is the current fuel oil demand market outlook?
  2. The IMO regulations will encourage consumers to switch from fuel oil to diesel. With the reduction in the use of residual fuel for power generation and space heating, the global demand for fuel oil will also subside. According to the global oil demand forecast, the shift from fuel oil-based heating in ships by 2020 will result in an excess of heavy fuel oil, which will be available at a hefty discount.

 

  1. How is the supply and demand outlook for the global oil market?
  2. While the demand for fuel oil is expected to decrease, Saudi Arabia has been among the few countries that have increased their fuel oil intake realizing that it is uneconomical to use their own crude oil for power. The global standards for oil use and stringent environmental policies are resulting in significant supply and demand risks in the global market. Despite the lower demands of fuel oil globally, new refining capacity is concentrated in locations in APAC where demand seems to be growing.
