Gas Engine Market
To learn more about this report, request a free PDF copy

A gas engine refers to an internal combustion engine that operates on gas fuel, such as natural gas, biogas, and a variety of other gas fuels, instead of liquid fuels, such as gasoline & diesel. The basic principle of operation involves the ignition of the gas fuel mixture inside the engine's cylinders, causing an expansion of gas that subsequently moves the pistons. This movement is converted into mechanical energy that is used to perform work, such as driving the wheels of a vehicle or powering industrial machinery. The global stimulus towards reducing carbon emissions and improving air quality has made gas engines, particularly those running on natural gas and biogas, an attractive option due to their relatively lower CO2, NOx, and particulate emissions than diesel engines. However, the initial cost of gas engine installations, particularly for high-efficiency models, can be prohibitive for some end-users. Furthermore, continued improvements in engine efficiency and fuel flexibility stand out as significant opportunities for the manufacturers.

Fuel: Growing utilization of special gas as it offers environmental and efficiency benefits

Natural gas is renowned for its ubiquity and relatively low carbon footprint; compared to other fossil fuels, natural gas stands as a cornerstone fuel for gas engines in both industrial and residential settings. It is primarily composed of methane, alongside minor amounts of other hydrocarbons. Special gas encompasses a variety of gasses, including biogas, syngas, and hydrogen, each offering distinct environmental and efficiency benefits. These fuels are increasingly considered for their potential to leverage waste resources and for their roles in the transition to a low-carbon economy.

End User: Expansion of automotive industry accelerating the deployment of gas engines

In the automotive industry, the preference for gas engines primarily revolves around efficiency, durability, and environmental compliance. Modern vehicles require engines that provide adequate power and comply with stringent emission norms. The manufacturing sector utilizes gas engines for power generation and as a drive for heavy machinery. The key preferences include reliability, power output consistency, and cost-efficiency regarding operational and maintenance expenses. In the oil & gas industry, gas engines are used for a variety of applications, including power generation at remote sites and for driving compressors and pumps. The sector values engines that offer high reliability in harsh conditions, fuel flexibility, and lower emissions. Utilities use gas engines for distributed power generation and as backup power sources. Preferences include the ability to swiftly ramp up power supply in response to grid demand, operational flexibility, and environmental sustainability.
