Singapore Bunker Fuel Market Outlook - 2030

The Singapore bunker fuel market size was valued at $17.6 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $24.5 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 3.5% from 2021 to 2030. Bunker fuel is a fuel oil used in marine vessels. It is poured into the ship bunkers to power its engines. Ships use mainly three types of marine fuels, which include high sulfur fuel oil, low sulfur fuel oil, and diesel oil. Nowadays, growth in awareness toward reducing environmental pollution and stringent government regulations are expected to create opportunities for the fuels, including LNG, gasoil, LPG, and others, as a substitute to the above-mentioned bunker fuels.

COVID-19 pandemic outbreak across the globe has resulted in decline in demand for bunker fuel from marine industry which also affected Singapore bunker fuel market in the year 2020.

Rise in maritime trade has increased the demand for bunker fuel and bunkering services. Increase in oil & gas exploration activities in emerging oil regions drives the growth of the bunker fuel market, as many bunker fuel suppliers changed their focus of operation to these offshore resource sites. In addition, fuel reduction initiatives by shipping industries are expected to hamper the market growth. Therefore, due to stringent environmental regulations regarding marine environment, the shipping industry has decided to reduce the use of residual fuel oil that contains contaminants such as nitrogen and sulfur. The shipping industry is focusing toward new alternative such as LNG, which is less harmful to the marine environment. Hence, rise in investment toward LNG bunkering infrastructure is anticipated to provide lucrative opportunity for key players operating in the market.

Singapore bunker fuel market, by type

By type, the LSFO segment held the largest market share in 2020. This is attributed to rise in demand for marine fuel from shipping companies and implementation of IMO 2020 i.e., the use of low sulfur fuel oil (<0.5% S content) across the globe. In addition, rise in maritime trade activities between Asia-Pacific, Europe, North America, and LAMEA region is further projected to increase the demand for LSFO from 2021 to 2030.

COVID-19 impact on the market

Lockdown imposed due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in temporary ban on the import and export, thereby disrupting the supply chain and hampering the Singapore bunker fuel market growth in the second, third, and fourth quarter of 2020. In addition, there will be some impact on the growth of the market in 2021, owing to the second wave of COVID-19 pandemic across the globe. However, the market is expected to recover by the end of 2021, as the production in various industries restarts with rapid vaccination across the globe. In addition, rise in maritime trade activities after the ease of ban on import and export is anticipated to fuel the market growth in the coming years.

Singapore bunker fuel market has registered the dynamic growth over the past few years and still acquired the position as leading bunkering hub across the globe owing to the low cost of bunkers and high level of service providing than other ports across the globe. In addition, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) regulations over reduction of sulfur cap from 3.5% to 0.5% to reduce the marine pollution are expected to drive the growth of the bunker fuel market. As these stringent environmental regulations might enhance the reduction of marine pollution. The lower sulfur cap regulation in bunker fuel is anticipated to reduce the marine pollution, which led to increase in demand for bunker fuel among the shipping companies. According to some CXOs, with increase in oil and gas exploration activities, the bunker fuel market is expected to witness growth in emerging oil-producing regions, especially in the Indo-Pacific region.

New oil-producing regions have vast unexplored reserves, which are enough to meet the growing energy demand in future. Exploration of these untapped reserves will affect the demand for shipping vessels, as increase in exploration, drilling, and production of oil & gas will require more shipping vessels to transport oil & gas to desired destinations, which will boost the growth of the bunker fuel market.

The previously predicted HSFO surplus amid carriage ban introduction and high refining runs will not materialized during initial quarter of 2020. In addition, the sharp drop in topline refinery throughput due to COVID-19 has meant a sharp decrease in sour residue supply and therefore, absolute HSFO production. But the refining industry has done better than expected job minimizing its HSFO fraction - and increasing its VLSFO yield.

Regardless, the narrower VLSFO-HSFO differential and overall lack of a supply crunch for low-sulfur bunker fuel is not likely to change anytime soon. Refinery throughput and global demand are negatively affected by COVID-19.

  • The impact of IMO specification change on reduction of sulfur cap will depend on the different strategies adopted by the ship owners. There are three main options for ship owners:
  • Purchasing compliant bunker fuel without making any changes in the vessel.
  • Installation of exhaust cleaning systems on board, known as scrubbers. These scrubbers will remove sulfur dioxide emissions from the exhaust and allow the ship owners to continue burning high sulfur bunker.
  • Switching to alternative fuel such as liquefied natural gas (LNG) by making modifications in the vessel.

The first option will increase the demand for low sulfur content fuel. The second option would be less disruptive for refining industry but comes up with the high initial investment for vessel owner. Third option will reduce the demand for both fuel oil and gas oil. Overall IMO specification changes eroded high sulfur fuel consumption and is expected to increase for various types of low sulfur bunker fuels.

In addition, increase in hydrocarbon exploration activities in Asia-Pacific and rise in sea borne trade are expected to drive the growth of the Singapore bunker fuel market in the near future. However, regional players such as China made available surplus reserve of marine compliant fuels is expected to attract key shipping players from Singapore to Chinese ports, which in turn is anticipated to restrain the growth of the Singapore bunker fuel market in the coming years.

Furthermore, due to stringent government regulations, shipping companies has decided to reduce usage of bunker fuel such as residual fuel oil (RFO). They are focusing toward the adoption of alternative fuels such as LNG (Liquified Natural Gas), biodiesel, kerosene, and others. LNG is expected to be put in newly build vessels particularly to those that operate within a geographic area, particularly emission control area (ECA). It is expected that with the rise in investment toward building & construction of LNG bunkering infrastructure there will be rise in lucrative opportunities for key players in the Singapore bunker fuel market from 2021 to 2030.
