Market Synopsis of Diesel Exhaust Fluid Market:
Globally, the market for diesel exhaust fluid is growing at a CAGR of 9.19% during the forecast period (2017-2023). Diesel exhaust fluid is a solution that consists of 32.5% urea and 67.5% de-ionized water. In this type of solutions, selective catalytic reduction (SCR) is the major technology that is used to reduce the emission from exhaust system. The urea solution is consumed through the selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology, which is sprayed into the exhaust system. The solution is burnt at high temperature to reduce the harmful nitrogen oxides produced by diesel engine.

North America accounted for the largest market share of 56.49% in 2016 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.83% during the forecast period. U.S. is expected to dominate the market in North America. It has been estimated that U.S. contributes to almost 70% of the ammonia that is used for the production of urea. In U.S., about half of the urea is produced as solid fertilizer, and about 25% of urea is consumed for the production of nitrogen based solutions. The increase in the production of urea in the U.S. is expected to drive the market in the future. The increase in use of selective catalytic reduction technology is expected to drive the market in future. SCR technology is mainly used to reduce nitrogen oxide emission up to 90%, at the same time, reducing HC and CO emission by 50-60%. SCR systems are also attached with the diesel particulate filter to reduce greater emission that can harm the environment. The increased use of SCR for the reduction of emission, allows more light duty vehicles to meet the requirement of EPA emission regulations. The other factors that are responsible for the growth of the market during the forecast period are stringent government regulations for the use of diesel exhaust fluid, increase in production of vehicles, and others.
