Air-Powered Vehicle Market Trends




  • Increasing public awareness of green vehicles is driving the market growth




Being a fossil fuel, petrol is not a renewable energy source and is likely to run out soon. Developing and utilizing alternative fuel sources is crucial to promoting sustainable development. This entails the employment of gas-free, more cost-effective than traditional automobiles, environment-friendly vehicles like electric mobility and air-powered vehicles. As a result of the tailpipe of the vehicle emitting chlorofluorocarbons and other dangerous gases, emissions created by internal combustion engines of the vehicles worsen the environment to a much greater level. On the other hand, air-powered cars are the answer to these problems because they produce no exhaust gas pollution. As a result, driving more energy-efficient automobiles, such as plug-in electric and air hybrid models, has become crucial to maintaining the increasing trend of reducing petroleum imports globally. This is due to the reduction of fossil fuel reserves and increased businesses' desire to maximize profits from these oil reserves. Thus, these factors spur the development of improved air-propelled vehicle technologies, which drives market expansion. Thus, driving the air-powered vehicle market revenue.


Governments and environmental organizations worldwide are passing strict emission standards and laws to minimize car emissions in response to growing environmental concerns. Major regulatory actions include strict emission objectives for reducing nitrogen oxides (NOx) and carbon dioxide (CO2) in the air. The United States is speeding up efforts to make transportation cleaner due to high greenhouse gas emissions from vehicles. FOR INSTANCE, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) declared that it was developing new regulations to cut down on nitrogen oxide (NOx) and other pollution emissions from heavy-duty trucks. The agency also finalized federal greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions regulations for US light vehicles and autos until 2026. The final rules take advantage of developments in clean auto technology to generate $190 billion in net benefits for Americans, including a decrease in climate pollution, an improvement in public health, and cost savings for motorists. Therefore, the burden on vehicle manufacturers, particularly those of commercial vehicles, has increased with the implementation of the emission restrictions for fossil fuel-powered vehicles. In turn, it is anticipated that during the predicted period, demand for air-powered vehicles will increase.  


Air-Powered Vehicle Market Segment Insights:


Air Powered Vehicle Energy Mode Insights


Based on energy mode, the global automotive air powered vehicle market segmentation includes single-energy and dual-energy modes. This market segment single-energy is predicted to dominate the industry because single-energy mode air-powered vehicles only use compressed air for propulsion. Additionally, there is a rising demand for emission-free vehicles in cities and developing nations, which is anticipated to account for a sizeable portion of the market during the forecast period.

(Japan), Tata Motors (India),  Engineair Pty Ltd (Australia), Groupe PSA (France), and Phinergy (Israel) are attempting to increase market demand by investing in research and development operations.


Motor Development International SA (MDI), a Luxembourg-based firm that designs devices for mobility and energy storage, uses a compressed air engine. Guy Nègre founded the Luxembourg firm MDI, which has administrative and manufacturing facilities in Carros, southeast France. MDI has created an environmentally friendly automobile engine that propels pistons with compressed air. Tata Motors and MDI had also come to a deal for OneCAT vehicles to be built and sold in India. In May 2012, Tata Motors declared that the design had been evaluated as passing phase 1, or "proof of the technical concept," in the direction of full manufacturing for the Indian market. Phase 2 of the compressed air engine's development by Tata is now complete and will be used in particular fixed and mobile applications.
