Market outlook of the diesel engine market

Technavio’s research analyst predicts the global diesel engine market to grow steadily at a CAGR of 9% during the forecast period. The market growth is dependent on the growth of the automotive industry globally. A diesel engine is employed in passenger, heavy-duty, and commercial vehicles. Due to its better operational efficiency in terms of mileage, a diesel engine is preferred over the petrol engine for commercial purposes.

The market has been seeing a broad range of product enhancements and developments to comply with the standards and regulations of various regions such as Euro VI in Europe. One such development is the incorporation of exhaust after-treatment technology with the diesel engine. This technology enables low emissions from diesel engines and increases their efficiency and is likely to see increased market penetration in the coming years. Such product developments are expected to aid the market growth in the next four years.
