This report covers patent analysis on the use and application of fuel additives, its research momentum and key intellectual property indicators. Additives have been developed to increase combustion rates, as anti oxidants, to effect burn rates, to enable fuels to work under extreme temperatures, reduce harmful emissions and more. Patent data reveals various organizations have focused their research across different categories and application areas of additives with some working on the cleaning properties, some on the anti oxidation properties and others having more research around catalysts. This report focuses on how Patent data can help uncover the trends, gaps and opportunities that exist around this area. You will find the information on the research activity, the companies most active in this research area, the filings spread, key comparisons etc. This report was prepared by mining patent data using Patent iNSIGHT Pro, a comprehensive patent analysis platform that helps one accelerate time-to-decision from patent analysis activities.
