    Market Highlights

    Compressed natural gas is becoming a viable choice for the automotive industry due to rising gasoline and diesel fuel prices and rising environmental concerns. Both tanks, metal as well as composite, are used in CNG vehicles with a huge dominance of metal ones, especially in Asia-Pacific and Europe, the two major markets for CNG tanks.

    Composite tanks are lighter than their conventional equivalents (metal CNG tanks), resulting in weight savings, increased fuel storage capability, and improved vehicle fuel economy. The demand for natural gas-powered vehicles is burgeoning worldwide. The availability of low-cost natural gas compared to gasoline and diesel is accelerating this push. As a result of that, many vehicle operators and owners are transitioning to CNG-powered vehicles to cut their running costs; driving the demand for composite CNG tanks. Furthermore, the growing environmental awareness and government attention on decreasing carbon emissions are giving additional impetus to the demand for composite CNG tanks.

    The CNG tanks market recorded a huge plunge of -14.4% in the year 2020 mainly factored by the COVID-19 Pandemic. However, it is anticipated that the market will start recovering from 2021 onwards with the recovery in the production of automobiles paired with the incessant transition from ICE to CNG-powered vehicles, particularly in the Asian and European markets. In the long run, the CNG tanks market is expected to recover at a healthy CAGR of 5.8%, reaching a value of US$ 3.5 billion in 2026.

    Market Segments' Analysis

    Based on the application type, the CNG tanks market is segmented as transportation and gas carrier & storage. Transportation is further segmented into cars, light-duty vehicles, buses, and trucks Transportation is expected to remain the largest as well as the fastest-growing application type in the market during the forecast period, owing to the increasing demand for CNG-fueled vehicles across regions. CNG vehicles offer lower transportation costs than ICE vehicles. Type-I remains the most dominant vessel type in the transportation segment, propelled by its well-proven track record paired with its lowest cost.

    Based on the vessel type, the market is segmented as type I, type II, type III, and type IV. Due to its low cost and high demand from major countries of the Asia-Pacific region, type I is expected to remain the dominant pressure vessel type during the forecast period. On contrary to this, type IV is expected to be the fastest-growing pressure vessel type in the market during the forecast period due to its lightweight, increased fuel efficiency, and low maintenance cost. There is a relatively high dominance of type-IV vessels in North America and Europe.

    In terms of regions, Asia-Pacific is expected to remain the largest as well as the fastest-growing market for CNG tanks during the forecast period. Major Asian countries, China, India, Korea, and Japan, are the manufacturing powerhouses of automobiles. These countries are also the major producers as well as procurers of CNG-powered vehicles. Currently, type-I vessels unanimously dominate the Asian market; however, there has been a transition from type-I to composite, especially type-III and type-IV vessels in China, Japan, and Korea. Indian remains one of the biggest markets for type-I vessels in the years to come.
