Automotive Natural Gas Vehicle Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report By Fuel Type (CNG, LNG), By Vehicle Type (Passenger, Light-duty & Heavy-duty Buses & Trucks)- Global Industry Analysis, Share, Growth, Regional Outlook and Forecasts, 2021-2027

The global Automotive Natural Gas Vehicle market gathered revenue around USD 29,792.90 thousand units in 2020 and market is set to grow USD 38,855.23 thousand units  by the end of 2027 and is estimated to expand at a modest CAGR of 3.0% during the prediction period 2021 to 2027.

Growth Factors:

The growing adoption of natural gas as an alternative fuel in vehicles, especially in the transportation sector worldwide, is creating the demand for automotive natural gas vehicles (NGVs). The low emission properties of NGVs facilitated by clean fuel characteristics are expected to drive their demand in public transportation, therefore boosting the market growth. The need for cleaner fuels at lower costs is also expected to drive market growth.

Moreover, government support for the adoption of these vehicles will augment the demand. The government authorities in various countries are implementing stringent regulations to curb environmental damages arising from the emission of Particulate Matter (PM) and Greenhouse Gases (GHG) from vehicles. Simultaneously, with these regulations, authorities have also been continuously revising the emission standard policies to help protect the environment.

 Government agencies across the globe are rolling out incentive programs to promote the adoption of NGVs owing to the high initial cost associated with the procurement of CNG and LNG vehicles. Some of the incentive programs to promote the adoption of these vehicles include the U.S. Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program (CMAQ), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Diesel Emissions Reduction Act Program (DERA), and California Energy Commission’s Clean Transportation Program.

The governments in various countries are undertaking initiatives to develop and expand the natural gas distribution infrastructure and invest significantly in improving natural gas technology. The network of CNG and LNG refueling stations is expanding in various countries, boosting the adoption of NGVs. For instance, the Indian Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas announced the construction of 1000 LNG fueling stations on the major national highways across the country. The fueling stations will be commissioned by state-controlled companies, including Hindustan Petroleum (HPCL), IOC, and Bharat Petroleum (BPCL), and gas suppliers such as Gas Authority of India Ltd. (GAIL), Gujrat Gas, and Petronet LNG.

Regional analysis:

The Asia Pacific region accounted for the largest share of more than 53.1% in 2020 and is anticipated to continue to lead the global market, registering a significant CAGR over the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to increased production and sales of passenger cars in the region. China accounted for around 50.2% of the passenger car sales in APAC. The region is the largest adopter of NGVs on account of natural gas infrastructure development in countries, such as India, China, and Pakistan. For instance, in India, the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas drafted the City Gas Distribution (CGD) policy. Under the policy, the government would be expanding the CNG infrastructure across the country. However, the growing interest in Electric Vehicles (EVs) and the stagnant infrastructural growth of NGVs are the factors posing a challenge for the market growth. Furthermore, the pandemic has disrupted the energy and auto industries worldwide.
