One of the main causes of air pollution worldwide was the transportation sector. Fossil fuel combustion releases emissions such as carbon dioxide, one of the major contributors to GHG emissions. Because GHGs have a negative effect on the ecosystem, the government has decided to decarbonize the transport sector around the globe. This transition to energy sources that are not polluted has led to the emergence of alternative sources of fuel. The need to decrease the carbon footprint in the transport industry, which is one of the biggest GHG emissions industries, has resulted to the use of natural gas as an alternative fuel for motor vehicles..

Increasing Emissions of Greenhouse Gases

The negative effects and the reduction of environmental damage require the development of environmentally friendly energy production methods and the increased use of renewable energy sources.

Fluctuations in Global Crude Oil

The fluctuations in global crude oil prices will affect alternative fuel adoption rates, as conventional fuel costs are lower than alternative fuels. The effect of prices in the oil and gas sector has led to a worldwide reduction in E&P activities and has also affected the mainstream and downstream segments. 

The Growing Need To Cut Down On Import Dependence And The Decreasing Reserves Of Crude Oil

The increasing need to reduce dependence on imports and the decreasing reserves of crude oil are the primary factors that increase the growth of the global market for alternative fuels. Furthermore, these factors push energy companies and national governments to invest more in the market for alternative fuels. Most of the world's energy-consuming centres rely entirely on exported oil from various oil exporting nations. Several countries are making efforts to raise awareness of the benefits of alternative fuels to reduce this reliance. This is expected to add significantly to business development.


The High Operational Costs Of Appliances That Run On Alternative Fuels Are Restricting The Growth Of The Alternative Fuels

On the other hand, the high operating costs of devices running on alternative fuels limit the growth of the global market for alternative fuels. Furthermore, it is expected that high maintenance and limited availability of alternative fuels will hamper market growth throughout the forecast period. Nevertheless, governments ' enforcement of strict regulations on the use of alternative fuels is expected to encourage leading players in the near future to introduce new technologies and products.

Alternate Fuels Is Gradually Taking Over The Market

Petrol and diesel are produced from non-renewable resources, which is why it is necessary to use alternative fuels that are easily accessible or can be produced from plant products. The use of alternative fuels is cost-efficient at 30% and the emission is 100% lower. Alternate fuels gradually take over the market and vehicles using alternative fuels have covered more than 1 billion miles over the past decade. Alternative fuel revenues are anticipated to have 32 percent interest by 2030, out of the complete petrol marketed. With the use of alternative fuels and renewable sources generated 27.3 times of the complete global electricity generated, with peak input from Latin America in 2020, energy generation is feasible.

Rising Trend Of Electric Vehicles Has Led The Alternative Market To Grow

There is an increasing trend in electric vehicles that in recent years has led the alternative market to grow. The complete amount of electric vehicles purchased in 2019 amounted to 2.3 million. Several countries have adopted the use of electric vehicles such as Norway, Sweden, France, the United Kingdom, China and more, and together China and the United States account for half of the world's electric vehicles. According to the study, the significant pushing variable for the development of the industry for alternative fuels is the environmental concerns that cause the restriction on the use of non-renewable fuels such as petrol and diesel. With the increasing population, fuel consumption patterns need to be transformed in order to sustain.

Major Challenge Faced By Alternate Fuels Market Is The Manufacturing Of These Fuels

Manufacturing of these fuels is a major challenge facing the alternative fuels market. The manufacturing process is both expensive and challenging as compared to petrol and diesel it needs to be scalable and sustainable. Some alternative fuels need to be mixed as an additive with other fuels, but they are not used on their own. Such features also hamper alternative fuels manufacturing.

India, China, and Japan are the most prominent energy-consuming countries making heavy global market investments. As a result, there is expected to be significant growth in the Asia Pacific alternative fuels market in the coming years.


Passenger Cars are the prime consumers of the Alternative Fuel

Passenger vehicles include vehicles such as sedans, hatchbacks, sports utility vehicles (SUVs), multi-purpose vehicles (MUVs), electric vehicles (BEVs) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs). In 2019, the worldwide automotive industry showed revenues of around 70.1 million passenger vehicles. Around 358,000 BEV and 242,000 PHEV are currently running around the globe. The major share of total vehicle sales is accounted for by passenger cars segment. In addition, it is expected that the number of electric passenger cars will reach 450 million by 2040. As China has the maximum percentage of electric vehicles worldwide, it is a potential market for AFHVs. China holds 230 million e-bikes, 83,000 e-cars, and 36,500 e-busses, according to the 2015 Global EV Outlook. Toyota Motor Corporation and Tesla Motors are leading competitors across the globe providing AFHVs.
