Alternative Fuel And Hybrid Vehicle Market, By Alternative Fuel Type, (Gaseous, Electric), By Vehicle Type, (Two Wheelers, Passenger Cars, Battery Electric Passenger Cars, Hybrid Electric Passenger Cars, Alternative Fuel Passenger Cars, Commercial Vehicles), Estimation & Forecast, 2016 - 2024

Published by MRO | On Sep-2017 | Pages : 162 | Report ID : 511046

Alternative fuel and hybrid vehicle market was valued at $318 billion in 2016 and is expected to reach $819 billion by 2024, having a CAGR of 12.8% during the forecast period of 2017 to 2024. The passenger car segment garnered the highest revenue share in the global alternative fuel and hybrid vehicle market.

Alternative fuel and hybrid vehicles (AFHV) are vehicles that run on fuels other than conventional types such as gasoline and diesel. The depletion of oil reserve at an alarming rate has given rise to the adoption of these vehicles across the globe. In addition, the emission of less harmful compounds such as oxides of carbon, nitrogen, and sulfur from these vehicles make them eco-friendly. Moreover, electric vehicles use electricity as their power source, in which electric energy is stored in the vehicular batteries and can be recharged at charging stations. On the other hand, hybrid vehicles use both conventional and alternative fuels as a source of power. Passengers can actually switch between these two powers while driving as per their feasibility and usage. The electricity based vehicle provides an attractive prospect by offering easily chargeable and noiseless urban transportation. In 2016, the total sale of electric drive vehicles in US alone stood at 5, 04,060 units.

Market Determinants

The world AFHV market has witnessed healthy growth in the recent years due to increase in demand for fuel-efficient vehicles, stringent government laws & regulations toward vehicle emission, and increase in public charging infrastructure. Technological advancements in alternative fuel vehicles and proactive government initiatives such as investment in electric and hybrid buses for public transit are propelling the market growth. Such a scenario represents both a challenge and an opportunity to capitalize on new vehicle technologies, and in the process, reap substantial economic development benefits. However, high costs of fuel, lack of awareness and high initial cost of infrastructure act as the major obstacles in the growth of the market. On the other hand, advancement in alternative fuel technologies, increasing interest in eco-friendly vehicles and upsurge in government initiatives are expected to create huge opportunities for the growth of market in the coming years.

Market Segmentation

The alternative fuel and hybrid vehicles market is segmented on the basis of alternative fuel type, vehicle type and geography. By alternative fuel type, the market is segmented into gaseous fuels, electric and others. On the basis of vehicle type, the market is segmented as two wheelers, passenger cars, and commercial vehicles. Geographically, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World. Asia-Pacific is the largest AFHV market in terms of revenue. However, North America and Europe are expected to witness the fastest growth with a CAGR of 15% during the forecast period of 2017-2024.
