The global diesel exhaust fluid aftermarket forecasted to reach USD 50.0 billion by 2027 from USD 34.4 billion in 2020, at a CAGR of 7.8%.
Governments around the globe have updated and improved their emission standards by introducing new legislation for the automotive industry to comply to. Western regions, such as the North American and European region, have introduced new regulations like the Clear Air Act of the Us which has stricter standards and wider scope for emissions. In the Asian region countries like China and India have introduced swift regulation to counter rising air pollution. The introduction of such regulations, norms and standards will drive the demand for DEF across the globe.

“The DEF pump segment is expected to be the fastest-growing segment throughout the forecast period”
The diesel exhaust fluid aftermarket for pumps is projected to grow from USD 7,373.3 million in 2022 to USD 11,979.1 million by 2027, at a CAGR of 10.2% during the forecast period. Comapred to conventional cans and bottles supply mode the DEF pumps supply mode is cheaper but expensive than the Bulk supply mode due to the economic behind the economies of scale. Customers choose to go for DEF dispensing units for its convenience in DEF refilling. This has caused oil marketing companies (OMCs) to install such dispensing units at their fuel stations to increase customer convenience. FMT Swiss Ag, a leading supplier of specialty fluid storage and dispensing solutions, in 2017, launched a range of diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) dispensing unit product for its North American market.

“Globally, the HCV segment is estimated to lead the diesel exhaust fluid OE market in 2022”
Globally, the HCVs segment is estimated to lead the diesel exhaust fluid OE market, by volume. It is anticipated to grow from 33.2 million gallons in 2022 to 36.5 million gallons by 2027, at a CAGR of 1.9% during the forecast period. Demand from developed and developing economies globally has increased for the HCV vehicle segment due to either better product offering or increased economic activites. Businesses need to comply with the regulations and norms of the country where they operate. Comalying with regulations will cause an increased demand of DEF products.

“North America is projected to be the largest regional market “
The North American diesel exhaust fluid aftermarket is estimated to grow from USD 15,006.6 million in 2022 to USD 22,067.4 million by 2027, at a CAGR of 8.0% during the forecast period. The US and Canada have a large number of on-road vehicles and stringent emission norms, such as the Clean Air Act (CAA) in the US. Increasing economic activity and improving business environment in the Mexico has led to high demand for diesel intensive vehicles and equipments. Compliance with emission regulations will drive the demand for DEF in the country. Canada follows similar demand and regulation pattern as the US hence it is also likely to follow similar demand trend of DEF.
