Industry Overview

The Indian auto industry is expected to reach US$ 251.4-282.8 billion by 2026. Global dependence on oil is a burning issue and India is also not spared from its dependence on oil imports. The transport sector in India currently consumes more than 50% of petroleum products and accounts nearly 12% of India’s energy-related CO2 emissions. Green fuel is the need of the hour and the different ministries & organizations are leaving no stone unturned in supporting the green initiative by constantly emphasizing the use of green fuels to curb pollution.

Natural Gas, being a clean and efficient fuel, can provide a viable alternative as a transport fuel. On the back of rapidly

developing infrastructure and price difference between natural gas vehicles and diesel vehicles, NGVs are expected to grow faster. NGVs are expected to account for 50 per cent of sales of new three- and four-wheelers in India by 2030.

The implementation of BS-VI emission norms from April 1, 2020, will increase price differential between CNG and diesel vehicles, making CNG vehicles more attractive.

A strong network of 15,000 CNG and 1,500 LNG stations by 2030 would have the potential to transform the Indian mobility scenario, with an expected 33 million natural gas vehicles as compared to 3.3 million in 2019.

Clearly, with a large number of Indian cities embarking for cleaner fuel, NGV is pacing the way for a revolutionary growth in the Indian automobile market.
