Brazilian ARLA 32 market slower than expected six months after implementation of PROCONVE P7

Laura Cross - 3 July 2012

ARLA 32 suppliers have indicated a slower level of development than had been expected since the implementation of PROCONVE P7 (Euro V equivalent) emissions standards in January, 2012.

The heavy-duty truck market took a dive in the first five months of 2012, with sales down 21% year on year. The exact number of P7 trucks on the road is not yet clear, however, vehicle manufacturers have seen far fewer deliveries than expected, in part due to the holding of P5 (Euro III) stock from 2011.

The challenges faced by the Brazilian ARLA 32 market were discussed at Integer Research's 2nd Diesel Emissions Conference and ARLA 32 Forum Brazil 2012, which took place in Sao Paulo on 26-28 June.

Achille Liambos, Director Air1 of Yara Latin America's ARLA 32 Division, said that Yara's initial estimation of the market being sized at 40 million litres in 2012 was not likely to be reached by the year end. Liambos said the size of the market had been closer to 7.7 million litres between January and 31st May 2012.

According to EncontreARLA.com.br, there are currently 1,930 locations stocking ARLA 32 in 10, 18 and 20 litre canisters throughout Brazil. It was suggested at the ARLA 32 forum last week that bulk supply will account for approximately 1-5% of ARLA 32 deliveries in 2012.
