The bunker fuel market is projected to reach US$ 207.3 billion by 2032 due to its wide range of applications, including power generation, industrial heating, asphalt production, and cement production, as reported by Global News Wire.

Alternate fuels 

Despite being one of the most polluting fuels in the world, it is popular due to its low cost and well-established infrastructure. However, concerns about its environmental impact and the development of alternative fuels are limiting its growth. The implementation of regulations such as the IMO’s sulfur cap is expected to significantly impact the market in the coming years.

Analyst View:

The main driver of target market expansion is the rising demand from the maritime transportation and shipping sectors. Exploration for gas and oil offshore has become more prevalent, which has helped the target market expand. Bunker fuel demand is anticipated to increase in the future years as interest in LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) as a substitute fuel for marine industries grows.
