Bunker fuel is the fuel oil/gas delivered to the ships that are engaged in international navigation. The international navigation takes place via sea, coastal waters, and on waterways and inland lakes. In the marine industry, bunker fuel is classified in two major categories residual fuel oils and distillates. Marine distillate is divided into two categories, marine gas oil (MGO) and marine diesel oil (MDO). Marine gas oil is mostly used in small and highly rated diesel engines, which are found in many different ships. Residual fuel oil (HFO) is the high viscosity oil fuel. The most commonly used heavy fuels are IFO 180 and IFO 380.

Rise in offshore exploration & production (E&P) activity and increase in seaborne trade are the factors that drive the growth of the global bunker fuel market. In addition, IMO's regulations of sulfur cap for marine fuels are also expected to drive the growth of the bunker fuel market. High investment cost involved in development of bunker fuel infrastructure and regulatory framework is anticipated to hamper the growth of the bunker fuel market.
