Global Octane Outlook

The study provides an assessment of future octane requirements from a global perspective. The assessment provides an overview of the current situation and assessment of the future environment for the time period out through 2027. The assessment of the future environment considers the future demand outlook, availability of supply, refining capabilities, and availability of gasoline blend-stocks including the following: Reformate, Alkylate, Isomerate, Polymerate, Naphtha, Butanes, MTBE, and Ethanol. Additionally, countries are identified, which require additional octane to meet future fuel specifications. For the priority countries the options available to the countries to meet the octane requirements are assessed. Options considered include refining-related investments, imports, and the utilization of blend-stocks including MTBE.  Analyses and data are delivered through our dedicated web portal in multiple formats including formal and informal analytical content, podcasts, webcasts, and more. Clients also have access to data tools, interactive custom charting with ability for data downloads, and mapping tools.
