Natural Gas Engine Market Dynamics
This section deals with understanding the market drivers, advantages, opportunities, restraints and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail as below:
- High Demand For Clean And Efficient Power Generation Technology
The natural gas engines burn cleaner, with no soot pollution of the engine oil in the crankcase. As a result, when compared to oil and coal-fired power plants, these power plants emit a small amount of carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2), Sulphur oxide (SO), and nitrogen oxide (NO). Thermodynamic efficiency are also higher in natural gas-fired power plants. When natural gas is utilized instead of coal, the air quality improves. Moreover, natural gas-fired power stations are less expensive and simpler to construct. Consequently, the demand for natural gas engines has largely increased due to these advantages.
The increase in the use of distributed power generation systems will further propel the growth rate of natural gas engine market. Additionally, the high adoption of natural gas by developing nations to achieve operational excellence and reduce carbon footprint is soon projected to bolster the market's growth.
- Reduction of Emissions and Adoption of Natural Gas
Furthermore, factors such as manufacturers' increasing focus on reducing carbon emissions extend profitable opportunities to the market players in the forecast period of 2022 to 2029. Additionally, the growing inclination towards gas-fired power plants and adoption of natural gas as a transition fuel will further expand the future growth of the natural gas engine market.
- Lack Of Infrastructure
The lack of proper infrastructure will create hindrances for the growth of the natural gas engine market.
- Geopolitical Instability
Also, the factors such as the US-China trade war, as well as Australia-China tensions, high political tensions between the CIS and certain European countries, and ongoing political difficulties between Russia and the European Union (EU) over the Ukraine crisis, which further affect the supply and pricing of natural gas are estimated to be a demerit for the natural gas engine market. Therefore, this factor will challenge the natural gas engine market growth rate.
