Global Diesel Engines Market for Non-Automotive Applications 2017-2021
Overview of the global diesel engine market for non-automotive applications
Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global diesel engine market for non-automotive applications to grow at a CAGR of over 6% between 2017 and 2021. Diesel as a fuel type dominates the overall generator market. Industrial generators have been depending on diesel as the most preferred fuel type owing to its low cost and easy availability. However, there is a growing trend toward the usage of natural gas and other alternative environment-friendly and non-diesel fuel sources. Despite this fact, diesel will continue to lead the fuel type segment for many years to come. The diesel engines available have modified combustion chambers that provide optimal combustion rates, better fuel economy, and lower emissions. Manufacturers are also coming up with several advancements and modifications in terms of fuel emission treatment methods and fuel composition. The global diesel engine market for non-automotive applications will be majorly impacted by the demand created by the major end-user industries such as marine, construction equipment, and agricultural equipment industries.
Several market players are gradually converting conventional diesel engines to dual-fuel natural gas engines. These dual-fuel systems can be easily uninstalled, and the engine can be restored back to its initial condition. Dual-fuel engines can be modified to operate as an environmental-friendly engine. Also, the power generation from such engines is continuous because even if gas supply is interrupted, the backup diesel operation is immediately available. These engines provide total original power capacity and higher compression ratio, which leads to higher engine output.
Competitive landscape and key vendors
The global diesel engine market for non-automotive applications is fragmented with the presence of many local and global vendors.
