Automotive Flex Fuel Engine Market Scenario


Automotive flex fuel engine market is poised to mark 6% CAGR Forecast by 2027

A flexible fuel engine or dual-fuel engine is also called flex-fuel engine and can operate on two different fuels from the same tank. Flex-fuel engines are designed to run on more than one fuel, such as gasoline or diesel, which can be stored in the same tank. Flex-fuel engines are flexible, independent, resource saving and can start the engine, easily. The main advantage of flex-fuel engine is the reduced petroleum content that helps preserve existing stores of fossil fuels consumption. Flex-fuel engines have the capacity to burn any percentage of gasoline in the combustion chamber. In flex-fuel engines, spark timing and injection are regulated according to the mixture of both fuels detected by fuel mixture sensor. The vehicle manufacturers are developing new technologies such as flex start, to improve vehicle efficiency and reduce vehicle emission.


Some of the  drivers of automotive flex fuel engine market are stringent environmental regulations, depleting natural sources of diesel, rising vehicle emission norms, and low-dependence on oil import. The European automakers are initiating various types of developments such as cleaner alternative fuels and advanced power systems for vehicles, which are being given priority to improve flex fuel engine efficiency. Therefore the reduced import of oil would eliminate a crucial expenditure and improve the country’s economy. Hence, countries with limited oil reserves are continuously taking initiatives to reduce oil consumption and boost the use of domestic alternative fuel. The trend in the automotive flex fuel engine market is second-generation ethanol becoming popular in flex-fuel vehicles. However, high production cost of ethanol hampers the growth of market.   


The global automotive flex fuel market is segmented by engine capacity (compact-size, full-size), fuel type (gasoline, diesel), and vehicle type (passenger car, commercial vehicle) and by region.
