A study recently conducted by the strategic consulting and market research firm BlueWeave Consulting, revealed that the India Automotive CNG and LPG kit market was 4.6 million units in 2020 and is likely to expand with a growth rate of 6.8%, in volume terms, from 2021 to 2027 and reach a volume of 7.1 million units in 2027. The growth of the market is attributable to the growing demand for more economical fuel than fossil fuels and the urgent need to bring down pollution levels in cities across India. Moreover, the growing demand for CNG/LPG, the increasing number of vehicles in India, and government initiatives to support cleaner fuel are the primary factors driving the growth of the India automotive CNG/LPG kit market. LPG and CNG vehicles operate at a much lower cost than petroleum vehicles. Therefore, alternative fuels like CNG and LPG make more sense when petrol is becoming more expensive due to increased demand and fewer reserves, especially for those who drive a lot.
The increasing automobile fuel policies will propel the market growth across the region
The prices of conventional automobile fuel, i.e., petrol and diesel, are surging rapidly in India. Diesel prices have already surpassed the ₹90-mark in India when petrol has already reached the ₹100-mark. Petrol and diesel prices in India have gone up despite the low cost of crude oil on the international market due to high local taxes. Excise duty and cess applied by the central government on fuel and a value-added tax (VAT) from the state governments are the main reasons for the increased petrol prices in the country. The prices of petrol and diesel have gone up by 40% and 56% respectively in the last seven years. The increased costs of petrol and diesel are driving people towards cleaner and cheaper fuel like CNG. The growing demand for CNG has led to increased demand for CNG kits in the country, thus propelling the growth of the India automotive CNG/LPG kit market.
