Compression Ignition is Emerging as a Key Technology in European Natural Gas Commercial Vehicle Market, finds Frost & Sullivan

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 5 aprile 2013

London Europe is set to emerge as a strong regional market for medium- to heavy-duty natural gas (NG) commercial vehicles, populated by several competitors on both OEM and supplier sides. Driven by energy price volatility, tightening emission norms, and the shale gas revolution in the US, the market for NG vehicles is gaining considerable momentum. Of all alternative NG technologies, compressed natural gas (CNG) and biomethane technologies pose the least pressure on existing infrastructure. By 2018, the NG market in Europe is expected to reach production levels of nearly 18,000 units. Spark ignited technology will account for around 90 per cent of commercially manufactured NG buses, while compressed ignition technology will dominate the liquefied natural gas (LNG) truck market with around 60 per cent share. The heavy duty segment is set to account for 75 per cent of NG truck sales with LNG being a dominant fuel option. OEMs’ willingness to differentiate products through technology partnerships is leading toward increasing focus on compression ignition and dual fuel technologies. Compression ignition would facilitate the use of NG vehicles for long haul application, which would compensate for the higher upfront cost – provided the fuel infrastructure and diesel NG price differential exists. In future, the margins for module suppliers will shrink, and the same will happen for component suppliers when OEMs begin exerting pricing pressures as volumes start to grow. Duty cycle restriction of NG vehicles can be overcome through concerted strategies aimed at developing vehicles and products that deliver highest efficiencies in certain targeted vocations and duty cycles along with necessary fuel infrastructure.

  1. Hi, i think that i saw you visited my site thus i came to
    “return the favor”.I am attempting to find things to enhance my website!
    I suppose its ok to use some of your ideas!!

  2. I do agree with all of the ideas you have presented in
    your post. They’re very convincing and can definitely work. Still, the posts are very brief for beginners. Could you please extend them a bit from next time? Thank you for the post.

    Very nice article. I certainly appreciate this site.
    Continue the good work!

  4. What’s up, this weekend is good for me, as this moment i am reading this enormous educational paragraph here at my house.

  5. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it
    seems as though you relied on the video to make
    your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to
    your site when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

  6. Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the web the easiest thing to be aware of.

    I say to you, I definitely get irked while people consider worries that they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

  7. My brother recommended I might like this web site. He was totally right.
    This post actually made my day. You cann’t imagine simply how much time I had spent
    for this information! Thanks!
