Several bunker fuel companies have come forward into the bunker fuel business to expand market opportunities. The global bunker fuel market has registered a dynamic growth over the past few years, as a result of enormous growth in oil and gas exploration activities in the Asia-Pacific region. In addition, IMO regulation regarding reduction of current sulfur cap from 0.5% to 3.5% to reduce marine pollution will also increase the demand of bunker fuel market among shipping companies. New oil-producing regions have vast unexplored reserves, which will meet the growing demand of energy in the future. Exploration of these untapped reserves will increase the demand for shipping vessels, as increase in exploration, drilling, and production of oil & gas will require more shipping vessels to transport oil and gas to desired destinations, which will boost the growth of the bunker fuel market.

The growth of the market is attributed to the surge in marine-borne trade and increase in offshore exploration activities, which augments the requirement of bunker fuel. However, high investment costs involved in creating the bunker fuel infrastructure and persistent need to replace the old containers hinder the market growth. On the contrary, pressing need to find alternate sources of marine fuel would create lucrative prospects for the market players.
