Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers

Collaboration, acquisition, expansion and joint ventures are considered for the development of aviation fuel market. The growing awareness of climatic change and the need to reduce carbon emissions in the aviation industry serve as primary driving growth. Constantly evolving aviation engine technology has made existing technology obsolete. This can further result into the industry rivalry amongst the major market players. The use of aircraft is highly growing throughout the logistics applications. The threat of new entrant is moderate in the aviation fuel market as less suppliers of aviation fuel as compared to its buyers. The demand for international safe and efficient air service is anticipated to rise enormously in the near future.


To achieve self-imposed greenhouse gas emission reduction as flight and engine improvements are insufficient, airlines need sustainable jet fuel. Sustainable jet fuel requires expensive technical processes, even though it is made from waste feed stocks. The cost of fuel is the major constraint of this market. Due to the installation of additional manufacturing capacity, sustainable jet fuel is more expensive than regular fuel. In the current business situation, each organization is vulnerable to changes in the price of raw materials for lubricants and crude oil. Manufacturers rely mainly on oil commodities in their manufacturing processes, so they are susceptible about price fluctuations in the oil products. Unstable global markets have extensive effects on manufacturing companies. As unexpected challenges are disrupting supply chains and making it difficult for manufacturers to stay profitable, in rising energy costs and the fluctuations in the cost of manufacturing crude oil. To build new biodiesel facilities, manufacturers  require time and money, which drives up the cost of their goods that limits their ability to reach the crucial point of profitability.
