Fuel Dispenser Market Size

ID: MRFR//5553-CR | 162 Pages | Author: Tejas Chaudhary| July 2019

Fuel dispensing equipment is what lets out and keeps track of liquid or gas fuel. These machines are used to pump liquids like gasoline, diesel, oil, or kerosene into things like vehicles, storage tanks, or portable containers. If it's a gaseous fuel dispenser, it might be used to refuel vehicles or machinery powered by things like hydrogen or syngas. Or it could just be used to move gases from one place to another.
In addition to their basic function of pumping and monitoring fuel, fuel dispensing equipment comes in various types to cater to different needs. One common type is the fuel dispenser found at gas stations. These dispensers typically have multiple nozzles to serve various types of fuels like gasoline and diesel. They often have electronic displays that show the amount of fuel dispensed and the total cost.

Another type is the bulk fuel dispenser, commonly used in industrial settings or for large vehicles like trucks and buses. These dispensers have a higher capacity and are designed to handle larger quantities of fuel efficiently. They play a crucial role in keeping fleets of vehicles fueled and operational.

Furthermore, there are specialized dispensers for gaseous fuels, such as those used for hydrogen or compressed natural gas (CNG). These dispensers ensure the safe and controlled transfer of gas into vehicles specifically designed to run on these alternative fuels. The growing interest in environmentally friendly transportation has increased the demand for these types of dispensers.

One of the critical aspects of fuel dispensing equipment is the inclusion of safety features. This is especially important when dealing with flammable liquids or gases. Many fuel dispensers are equipped with safety mechanisms, such as automatic shut-off systems, to prevent spills and accidents. Additionally, some dispensers have advanced technologies like electronic monitoring and authentication systems to control access and usage, ensuring that only authorized personnel can operate them.

As technology advances, there is a trend toward smart fuel dispensing systems. These systems incorporate digital technologies to provide real-time monitoring, data analytics, and remote control capabilities. Smart dispensers can offer enhanced security, efficiency, and environmental sustainability by optimizing fuel consumption and minimizing waste.

In conclusion, fuel dispensing equipment is a crucial component in the transportation and industrial sectors, facilitating the safe and efficient transfer of liquid and gaseous fuels. With various types available, these dispensers play a vital role in keeping vehicles and machinery fueled, contributing to the smooth operation of various industries.

Fuel Dispenser Market Trends

  • Automotive industry is experiencing a rise in the use of cost-effective alternative fuels to boost the market growth

For cost-effectiveness, fuel efficiency, and emission control, alternative fuels are increasingly used in the automotive industry, leading to their growth. Compared to the volatility of petroleum product prices, CNG and LPG vehicles are growing rapidly in developing countries due to their lower costs. Furthermore, vehicles powered by CNG and LPG are considered green alternatives to petroleum-operated vehicles. For the fifth consecutive year, automakers in the U.S. sold more than 17 million vehicles, according to Bloomberg data 2020. New vehicle sales were predicted to reach 16.7 million to 16.9 million units in 2019. Accordingly, reaching estimated sales targets is expected to boost the automotive industry's growth trajectory, leading to further demand for these dispensers.

Improved thermal efficiency of internal combustion engines reduces emissions while at the same time mitigating poor efficiency of single-fuel vehicles. Dual-fuel vehicles can operate interchangeably with natural gas and diesel fuel. Because petroleum products are depleting, people are turning to alternative technologies such as electric and hybrid vehicles. This will drive the market growth of dual-fuel and hybrid vehicles.

In order to boost market growth, technologically advanced fuel dispensers are required. Advanced fuel dispensers enable more vehicles to be pumped at once. The device includes a scanner, customer identification keypad, video screen, barcode, and magnetic card terminal to provide more precise and reliable metering and refuelling. Moreover, key players are increasingly developing more sophisticated products to improve customer experience, such as customizable fuel dispensers. Hence, technologically advanced dispensers are expected to enhance the fuel dispenser market CAGR ly in recent years.

However, developing electronic embedded dispensing systems, for example, is another growth-inducing factor. It is also becoming increasingly common for manufacturers to provide smart retail management solutions to consumers through the incorporation of artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), cloud computing, and IoT-based platforms are other factors driving the growth of the fuel dispenser market revenue.

Fuel Dispenser Market Segment Insights

Fuel Dispenser Type Insights

The fuel dispenser market segmentation, based on type, includes submersible and suction. The submersible fuel dispenser segment held the majority share in 2021, contributing to around ~65-67% of the fuel dispenser market revenue. A submersible system segment would be driven by low maintenance, installation, and service costs due to its single-pressure outlet connecting the dispensing units in the refilling station. These factors would drive a submersible system segment in the near future.

Fuel Dispenser Application Insights

The fuel dispenser market segmentation, based on application, includes petrol, diesel, biofuel, and others. The petrol segment dominated the fuel dispenser market in 2021 and is projected to be the faster-growing segment during the forecast period, 2022-2030. Since industrial and commercial energy demand is growing, petrol and gasoline are primarily used due to their wide application in mechanical engines, power generators, mobile drives, locomotives, construction equipment, automobiles, and many other industrial applications. Hence, rising applications of petrol for fuel dispenser positively impacts the market growth. Diesel is predicted to hold the second-largest market share.
