CNG tank cylinder Market Trends

  • Growing use of LNG vehicles is driving the market growth

Market CAGR for CNG tank cylinder is being driven by the rising use of LNG vehicles. A number of nations fight against climate change on a scale by establishing aggressive goals to lower GHG emissions. By 2030, the EU has established a legally enforceable goal to cut emissions by 40% below 1990 levels. The road transport industry in the EU is one of the most significant sectors that depend on fossil fuels.

The transport industry is Europe's single largest source of GHG emissions due to its reliance on oil. Since more than 308.3 million road cars in Europe rely on oil-based fuels more than 95% of the time, the road transport sector is responsible for around 73% of all transport-related GHG emissions. In addition, various low-emission alternative fuels for automobiles are available, which can lessen the transportation sector's reliance on oil and cut greenhouse gas emissions from road transportation. Currently, over 2 million natural gas cars are operating throughout the EU, supported by a 4041 CNG and LNG fuelling stations network. By switching to CNG automobiles instead of petrol, energy consumption may be reduced by around 10% of what petrol uses. The public is turning to vehicles powered by inexpensive alternative fuels like compressed natural gas due to rising gas costs and the prohibitively high cost of electric vehicles for most people.

For a variety of uses, compressed natural gas (CNG) cylinders are offered in a variety of forms, weights, and sizes. Tank prices often rise as tank weight lowers. Tanks may occasionally be leased from petrol providers or car converters. Adsorbed Natural Gas (ANG) does not require high-pressure storage cylinders or tanks since it stores natural gas in a carbon honeycomb structure. As the gas enters the system, it is absorbed into the substance, which may be kept solid at extremely low pressure. This indicates that high-pressure cylinders are no longer necessary to hold the gasoline within the car. As a result, the storage may be custom-molded into various forms and sizes while reducing weight. The fact that an ANG system is backward compatible is its main benefit. Although they may still utilize it, ANG systems do not require the 3,600 pounds per square inch (PSI) pressure needed for today's CNG automobiles. The current CNG network is still accessible to vehicles with ANG. Although the needed pressures for an onsite station may be significantly reduced, they wouldn't be left behind if the new technology was used. The market demand for CNG tanks is anticipated to be hampered by the increased usage of storage technologies for adsorbed natural gas in vehicles. Thus, driving the CNG tank cylinder market revenue.

CNG tank cylinder Market Segment Insights

CNG tank cylinder Tank Type Insights

Based on tank type, the CNG tank cylinder market segmentation includes cryogenic tanks, tube-tailored tanks, stationary tanks, and others. The tube-tailored tank segment dominated the market, accounting for 35% of market revenue. Because it is less expensive to acquire and has several uses in the automobile sector. Aside from that, lighter vehicles have a much longer lifespan, directly affecting the need for CNG tanks.

CNG tank cylinder Tank Composite Type Insights

Based on composite type, the CNG tank cylinder market segmentation includes carbon fiber, steel or aluminum alloy, metal component, glass fiber, and others. The carbon fiber segment dominated the market. Compared to metal cylinders built of a single material, such as aluminum and steel, carbon fiber woven composite cylinders perform better. Compared to metal cylinders of equal volume, it can store more gas, is 50% lighter, has better corrosion resistance, and doesn't pollute the environment. Carbon fiber-made cylinders provide the market's finest mix of safety, effectiveness, and durability. The range, payload, handling, and fuel efficiency of vehicles may all be enhanced using carbon fiber cylinders.

CNG tank cylinder Vehicle Type Insights

The CNG tank cylinder market segmentation, based on Vehicle Type, includes commercial, passenger vehicles and others. The commercial vehicle category generated the most income. The original equipment manufacturers offer commercial petrol vehicles, contributing to the most notable market rise for CNG tanks. Other than that, commercial vehicles include buses, heavy-duty trucks, and delivery trucks. The market for CNG tanks is expected to expand because of the CNG tanks' wide variety of uses and smaller weight, which lowers transportation and labor costs.

CNG tank cylinder Industry Developments

August 2022: The Tiago and Tigor iCNG have been modified by Tata Motors with their dual-cylinder CNG tank technology. Tata employs two smaller cylinders that fit beneath the baggage area instead of a single giant CNG cylinder that takes up space in the boot. As a result, the Tigor iCNG has a 70-liter CNG tank capacity.

January 2022: At the 2023 Auto Expo, Tata displayed the Punch CNG and Altroz CNG. The two vehicles will soon be added to Tata Motors' lineup, joining the Tiago and Tigor CNG. Even though all four of these vehicles have the same 1.2L conventional CNG engine, the newest models will have 2PS greater power and 2Nm more torque. However, the larger boot area of the more recent CNG vehicles is the main talking point. This issue is permanently fixed by the 'dual cylinder' technology in the forthcoming Punch CNG and Altroz CNG. In other words, they use 2 smaller cylinders for the CNG rather than 1 larger cylinder.
