Report updated on 11th September, 2021: Global Automotive Natural Gas Vehicle Market 2021 (Includes Business Impact of COVID-19)

Global Automotive Natural Gas Vehicle Market Trends and Opportunities, Various Applications, Growth, and Global Forecast till 2028 is a recently created study report by Trusted Business Insights. The target market report has been segmented on the basis of fuel type, vehicle type, and region/ country. Request Covid - 19 Impact The global automotive natural gas vehicle market demand was valued at 29682.65 thousand units in 2020 and is expected reach 41221.95 thousand units by 2030 growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.2% from 2021 to 2030.

Automotive Natural Gas Vehicle: Overview

A natural gas-based vehicle requires CNG (compressed natural gas) and LPG (liquefied natural gas) to function. It is an economical and eco-friendly option over diesel or petrol and is widely used in lift trucks, light and heavy-duty trucks, buses, vans, cars, motorcycles, and locomotives.

Global Automotive Natural Gas Vehicle Market: Dynamics

Significantly high demand for natural gas-based vehicles which meets the emission targets along with increasing extraction of natural gas is a factor that is expected to drive growth of the target market. In addition, increasing investments in vehicles and retail infrastructure are expected to support growth of the target market. Moreover, growing demand for cheap and eco-friendly fuel alternatives, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are promoting products by showcasing the fuel efficiency and emission-free features. This factor is expected to fuel demand for automotive natural gas vehicles. Furthermore, inclination towards technologically enhanced automotive vehicles is expected to foster automotive natural gas vehicle market growth. Stringent regulations laid down by governments of various countries such as the Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) and Federal Emissions Standards to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and particulate matter (PM) from diesel and gasoline vehicles are expected to positively influence target market growth. According to document released by US Energy Information Administration (EIA) in 2017, China emerged as the worlds second-largest importer of LNG -mainly driven by spiraling adoption of LNG by the nations trucking industry. However, increasing inclination and adoption of electric vehicles in order to reduce dependency on fossil fuels to run the vehicles and intense concerns regarding constant depletion of non-renewable resources across the globe is a factor that could have a negative impact on the target market growth significantly. Moreover, availability of biofuels obtained from vegetable oils or animal fats is also expected to hinder target market growth. In 2017 for instance, the Indian government provided direct subsidy to buyers of electric cars and scooters along with benefits such as nil VAT and 50% reduction in road tax for buying non-polluting vehicles. Some of the key trends observed in the market include growing adoption of fuel alternatives at economical rates such as LNG and CNG in the truck business sector, infrastructural development, and modification of various diesel-based fleet vehicles to vehicles with natural gas. In 2016 and 2017, certain natural gas market players such as Finland-based Gasum Oy and Gazprom in Russia have made considerable contributions in order to develop infrastructure in natural gas sector by establishing innovative LNG and CNG fuel stations.

Automotive Natural Gas Vehicle Market: Segment Analysis By Fuel Type:

Among the two fuel type segments, the LNG segment is anticipated to record considerable share in terms of value in the global market. the CNG segment is anticipated to grow at a significant growth rate in the next 10 years in the target market.

By Vehicle Type:

Among the vehicle type segments, the passenger car segment is estimated to record substantial revenue share in the target market.

Automotive Natural Gas Vehicle Market: Regional Analysis

Currently, the automotive natural gas vehicle market in North America accounts for higher market share in terms of revenue in the global market. This is attributed to high production of CNG trucks, increasing extraction and production activities in the US and Canada. In November 2017 for instance, Florida East Coast Railway (FEC) of North America adopted liquefied natural gas (LNG) for modifying fleet of 24 GE ES44AC locomotives. The Asia Pacific (APAC) automotive natural gas vehicle market is projected to be the largest automotive natural gas vehicle adopter. The major reasons for growth of the market are development of infrastructure for natural gas, along with stringent policies by government associated with concerns about the environmental impact.

Below are the active patents related to Automotive Natural Gas Vehicle Market.

Patent Number: AU2013256388B2 Compressed natural gas vehicle safety system and method Abstract A multiply-redundant system that prevents a driver from starting and/or moving a vehicle if a compressed natural gas fill system is not correctly and completely disconnected from the vehicle. One or more sensors in combination with one or more optional microswitches combine to lock-out the vehicles ignition or otherwise prevent it from starting and/or moving. For different levels of safety, different combinations of sensors can be used with the lowest level having a single proximity sensor sensing the presence or absence of a high-pressure fill hose. The highest level of safety being achieved by having separate proximity sensors on the fuel fill hose fitting, the gas cap cover and a manual safety valve along with a redundant microswitch. An optional override that may be restricted as to the number of times it can be used can allow starting with a faulty sensor in order to allow maintenance. Application File Date: 2013-05-01 Application Granted Date: 2017-05-25 Inventor: Daniel McNICHOLAS Patent Number: CN102574463B Jigs and fixtures of CNG containers for motor vehicles Abstract This invention relates to the research for creating the specific components for holding CNG container system on motor vehicles and emphasizes on its advantages in any aspects for the worthiness and safety to the owners of vehicles.
