Increasing Demand for Lower Sulphur Vacuum Gas Oil to Bolster the Industry Growth

The lower sulphur VGO dominated the global vacuum gas oil industry in 2020 owing to its low sulphur content, making it an attractive blending feedstock for manufacturers aiming to fulfill the regulations set by government organisations. Low sulphur VGO contains around 0.5-0.6% sulphur, and, thus, is being extensively adopted by manufacturers. Meanwhile, the light vacuum gas oil segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR over the forecast period owing to its increased utilisation for cracking to obtain gasoline and diesel.

 

North America to Dominate the Vacuum Gas Oil Industry

North America is the leading regional market in the industry driven by the growing automobile sales, coupled with the presence of well-developed refining and cracking facilities in the region. The Asia Pacific is expected to witness the highest CAGR over the forecast period owing to the growing per capita energy demand and increased oil consumption in in the region, particularly in emerging nations like China and India. The growing urbanisation trend and rapid industrialisation in these nations is driving the demand for oil, which in turn, is aiding the global vacuum gas oil industry.

 

Vacuum Gas Oil: Industry Definition and Segmentation

Vacuum gas oil or VGO refers to heavy oil left over from petroleum distillation, which can be further refined in a catalytic cracking unit, upgrading vacuum gas oil into the products with greater value, that is, gasoline and diesel. If not upgraded, it is blended into residual fuel oil. It is an important intermediate feedstock which has the capacity to increase the output of valuable diesel and gasoline from refineries.

 

Vacuum Gas Oil Market By Sulphur Content

On the basis of type, the industry is divided into:

  • Heavy Vacuum Gas Oil
  • Light Vacuum Gas Oil

Heavy vacuum gas oil (HVGO) and light vacuum gas oil (LVGO) can be processed by some advanced FCC processes. However, to transform LVGO and HVGO into light and middle distillates (e.g., kerosene and diesel fuel), hydrocracking is more frequently used, which is carried out using hydrogen and particular catalysts.

On the basis of sulphur content, the industry is segmented into:

  • Lower Sulphur Content
  • High Sulphur Content
  • Others

It has applications in:

  • Gasoline Production
  • Diesel Oil/Kerosene Production 
  • Others

The regional markets for the product include North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa.

Increasing Demand for Gasoline and Diesel to Augment the Vacuum Gas Oil Industry Growth

The global vacuum gas oil industry is being driven by the growing demand for gasoline and diesel across the globe. Gasoline is used to fuel internal combustion engines for motorbikes, trucks, boats, and other transport vehicles while highly refined gasoline may find application as aviation fuel. The growth of the automobile industry will lead to increase in demand for gasoline and diesel, thus, further aiding the vacuum gas oil industry. With the rising consumer disposable income, both in developed and developing nations, the demand for luxury vehicles is further increasing, which in turn, is contributing to the industry growth.

With the growing expenditure in research and development activities and rapid advancement in technology, manufacturing process at vacuum gas oil units is becoming simper, which is substantially aiding the industry growth. The growing product demand from the Asia Pacific region is expected to create new opportunities for the industry growth over the forecast period. For instance, Zhejiang Petrochemical Corporation, a Chinese firm, announced its plan to adopt process technologies for a new integrated refining and petrochemical complex in February 2017. This complex is expected to have one of the world’s largest refineries, with a total capacity of 40MMTPA.
