The global automotive natural gas vehicle (NGV) market demand was estimated at 24,900.00 thousand units in 2018. It is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 3.0% during the forecast period 2019 o 2027.
The global automotive NGV market demand is projected to reach 32,000.1 thousand units by 2027.
Rising support from several governments worldwide for the adoption of NGVs is one of the primary growth stimulants for the market.
The transportation sector across the world is adopting natural gas as a fuel for vehicles. Incumbents of the sector have realized that vehicles operating on conventional fuels, such as diesel and gasoline, are causing pollution and emitting greenhouse gases on a large scale. The adoption of advanced technologies in engines is turning out to be of paramount importance in order to reduce emissions.
Stringent regulations, laid down by governments of various nations, focus on reduction of emissions of greenhouse gases and particulate matter from vehicles in order to curb environmental damage. Along with these regulations, authorities have also been amending emission standard policies dynamically in order to protect the environment. This, in turn, is projected to positively influence the growth of the market over the forecast period.
Incumbents of the automotive industry are enhancing their product portfolio and providing compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) variants of vehicles in order to comply with evolving policies and standards. Surging demand for vehicles running on CNG and LNG coupled with increasing launches of a variety of natural gas vehicles is likely to propel the market.
Production of natural gas is becoming a safer process as authorities have been implementing strict regulations and industry standards to ensure safe production, storage, transportation, distribution, and use of natural gas. Technological advancements and government support have provided a push to the natural gas industry over the last decade. As a result, improved production and handling processes of natural gas are estimated to augment the market over the forecast period.
Need for alternative fuel technology in the transportation sector is prompting incumbents to adopt LNG vehicles for their operations. Subsequently, the automotive LNG vehicle segment is likely to witness strong growth in line with rising interest from the transportation sector, especially the trucking sector.
Rising emissions of greenhouse gases and particulate matter (PM) from diesel and gasoline vehicles are causing the air quality all around the globe to deteriorate, thus affecting people’s health. PM and greenhouse gases lead to smog that might cause lung diseases, such as asthma, chronic bronchitis, and emphysema, along with other health issues.
Modern technologies have continuously emerged through dedicated collaborative R&D centers or manufacturers’ independent technology centers; where researchers focus on building optimal solutions for their NGV customers. Governments across the globe are taking initiatives and investing significant resources to improve natural gas technologies.
Further key findings from the report suggest:
Stringent regulations, laid down by governments of various nations, to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and particulate matter are expected to positively influence market growth over the forecast period
Refueling solutions such as home refueling and time-fill refueling prove to be economic along with providing convenience to customers
There is an increase in the adoption of natural gas for different applications across various industries owing to stringent government regulations regarding greenhouse gas emissions and environmental protection
