Industry Insights

The global internal combustion engine (ICE) market size was estimated at 157,105 thousand units in 2017. The market is projected to grow at 4.9% CAGR over the forecast duration. In the recent past, the market has witnessed challenges from depleting fossil fuels industry and growing emphasizing on improving emission levels. However, the introduction of advanced technologies coupled with hybrid systems is helping industry in gaining traction and this trend is anticipated to fuel the market growth from 2018 to 2025.

Recently, there has been a surge in demand for electrical vehicles and IC engines are being incorporated with hybrid vehicles to strengthen the fuel economy. Further, IC engines are used with a different combination of electric vehicles. These factors are estimated to augment the industry growth in the near future.

India Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) market

Owing to stringent emission norms, industry players are engaged in developing high power and high-speed engine that can be environment friendly. Despite these efforts, governments across the globe are focusing on banning the IC engine. For example, countries such as France, India, Netherlands, U.K and Norway are emphasizing on doing away with sales of IC engine by 2025. Other counties such as Germany and China are also focusing on banning these vehicles, although they have not set any specific timeline.

Growing penetration of electric vehicles is derailing the IC engine growth significantly and its electric vehicles target set by various manufacturers meet the timeline, then ban on IC engine can be a reality. Nevertheless, it is highly likely that the IC engine would be redundant anytime soon. Despite considerable growth rate, electric vehicles have their own challenges that restrict their mass adoption.

Fuel Insights

Based on fuel used, the IC engine can be segregated into natural gas and petroleum. Of them, in 2017, the petroleum segment accounted for more than 80% of the market share. Further, this segment can be bifurcated into gasoline and diesel. Gasoline based engine held 45% of the market share in 2017. Features such as less vibration and noise attribute to the growth of this segment.

On the other hand, despite significant availability of natural gas, it accounted for a lower share in the market in 2017. This segment is projected to witness a CAGR of 4.0% over the forecast period. Owing to the widespread popularity of petroleum bases engine, it is expected that natural gas-based engines will considerable time in becoming popular.

End-use Insights

Based on end-users, the internal combustion engine market is categorized into automotive, aircraft and marine. Of them, in 2017, the automotive engine held over 65.0% share by volume. In addition, this segment is anticipated to register the highest growth rate from 2018 to 2025. Growing infrastructural development coupled with rising purchasing power is propelling the growth of this segment. Further, technological advancements that led to the introduction of fuel-efficient vehicles are also bolstering the growth of this segment.

Global internal combustion engine (ICE) market

On the other hand, aircraft IC engine is likely to witness a CAGR of 4.5% over the forecast period. The growing number of aircraft manufacturing is attributing to the growth of this segment. Further, technological advancements that result in the development of multi-fuel capability has significantly improved the mileage, thereby, propelling market growth. As predicted by the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the world is projected to witness significant demand for aircraft by 2030.

Regional Insights

In 2017, Asia Pacific accounted for over 40% of the market share by volume. Considerably high production of the automobile, especially in China, is proliferating the market growth. Additionally, the region is witnessing high demand for aircraft, which, in turn, is projected to augment the market growth from 2018 to 2025.

North America, on the other hand, is anticipated to register the significant growth owing to rise in car sales in the regions, especially in the U.S. By volume, Europe accounted for nearly 25% of the market share in 2017. However, Europe share in the market is projected to decrease owing to stringent emission norms imposed by the federal government in the region. Further, the region is witnessing a considerable increase in the number of electrical vehicles.
