Natural Gas Passenger Cars, Light Duty Pickup Trucks, SUVs, Vans, and Light Commercial Vehicles: Global Market Analysis and Forecasts
Natural gas supplies have increased in many parts of the world during recent years due to new pipelines and hydraulic fracturing. This increase has led to reduced prices for natural gas and the wider geographic availability of vehicle refueling. As a result, interest has been renewed in utilizing natural gas as a transportation fuel to reduce both the use of oil and greenhouse gas emissions.
Momentum in the light duty (LD) natural gas vehicle (NGV) market has been particularly strong in Asia Pacific and North America. The number of LD NGVs on the road is expected to grow dramatically during the next 10 years in the key markets of China, India, Thailand, and the United States. While mature markets like Italy and Ukraine are anticipated to see growth, demand for LD NGVs in European countries will remain relatively uneven from country to country. Navigant Research forecasts that global annual LD NGV sales will grow from 2.3 million vehicles in 2014 to 3.8 million in 2023.
This Navigant Research report analyzes the global market for natural gas passenger cars and light duty trucks, including pickup trucks, SUVs, minivans, and vans. The study provides an analysis of the market issues and drivers associated with LD NGVs, including refueling availability, competing alternative drive technology, total cost of ownership, vehicle availability, and government influence. Global market forecasts for vehicle sales, vehicles on the road, and fuel used, broken out by region, segment, and drivetrain, extend through 2023. The report also examines the key technologies related to natural gas storage on vehicles, as well as the major players within the market.
Key Questions Addressed:
Where are the largest markets for natural gas passenger cars and light trucks?How important are the consumer and fleet markets to light duty natural gas vehicle (NGV) sales?What role do government emissions restrictions and purchase incentives play in the NGV market?What types of compressed natural gas (CNG) cylinders are used in natural gas cars and trucks?What technological changes are expected to improve the efficiency of natural gas cars and trucks?How many natural gas refueling stations are available worldwide?How much natural gas will be used by light duty vehicles??Which U.S. states are likely to see the greatest numbers of natural gas cars and trucks?
