The global flex fuel engine market revenue was US$ 66.8 billion in 2021. The global flex fuel engine market revenue is forecast to reach US$ 105.11 billion by 2030, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.8% during the forecast period from 2022-2030.
The flexible-fuel vehicle (FFV) or a dual-fuel vehicle is an alternative fuel vehicle with an internal combustion engine that can run on more than one fuel. It usually consists of gasoline blended with ethanol or methanol fuel, and the storage of both fuels is in one tank. The combustion chamber of a modern flex fuel engine is able to burn any proportion of the fuel mixture as fuel injection, and spark timing is automatically adjusted based on the actual fuel composition as detected by a fuel composition sensor.
Factors Influencing Market Growth
An increase in pollution levels globally, coupled with a growing need for carbon-neutral automobiles, will drive the flex fuel engine market forward.
Stringent environmental regulations and vehicle emission standards, along with dwindling fossil fuel reserves, are factors considered to drive the overall flex fuel engine market.
Engine damage concerns, a shortage of flex fuel stations, and the development of electric and hybrid electric vehicles may negatively impact the overall flex fuel engine market growth during the forecast period.
Increased automotive performance on higher ethanol blends across the globe and the adoption of sustainable automotive technologies in the coming years will fuel the growth of the global flex fuel engine market.
Impact Analysis of COVID-19
COVID-19 had negatively impacted the global flex fuel engine market. The pandemic has caused the industry to face major functional problems and restraints caused by a lack of skilled labor, raw materials, and resources. The pandemic has halted many businesses. The rapid spread of the virus affected the automotive industry, thereby affecting the flex fuel market. In addition to the gap between supply and demand for raw materials, the closure of automobile component factories has hindered the production capacity of flex fuel engine manufacturers.
The Asia Pacific is forecast to grow at the highest share in the global flex fuel engine market during the forecast period. Due to the presence of populous countries like India, China, Australia, and various other countries that contribute to the market demand in this region. Furthermore, the increase in investment combined with the production of high-end and luxury vehicles is another factor that increases market demand.
