India Automotive CNG/LPG Kit Market Overview:

A CNG/LPG kit is a mixing unit that delivers gas to the engine of the vehicle. Venturi and sequential are the two most common types of CNG/LPG kits available in the market and are used in most automobiles. A Venturi kit is commonly used in carbureted cars, while a sequential kit is more appropriate for multi-point fuel-injected cars. Venturi kits are also more affordable and sequential kits provide better performance and mileage to the vehicle. CNG/LPG kits are witnessing increased demand with prices of petrol and diesel surging rapidly and government’s promoting use of clean fuel in the vehicles. CNG and LPG are also known as “clean fuels” owing to low emission of harmful gases and low deposition of residue after burning.

India Automotive CNG/LPG Kit Market Forecast and Trend

Growth Drivers

The rising number of passenger cars across India

The Indian automotive industry has experienced steady growth in demand for passenger cars due to improved economic conditions and increased disposable income for consumers. Gradually, the country has moved from affordable transportation to luxurious and safe transportation that is easy/comfortable. The India Brand Equity Foundation reports that 3.49 million passenger and commercial vehicles were sold in India in 2020, with domestic automobile sales increasing by 1.29% between FY2016 and 2020.

Furthermore, with the increasing number of international car manufacturers and brands in the country and consumers' willingness to buy and maintain new cars, consumers are willing to buy more than one vehicle to suit their travel demands. The top demand generators of CNG & LPG automotive kits in Asia are India & China, which produce 29 million passenger cars, light commercial vehicles, medium and heavy commercial trucks each year.

Low cost of CNG/LPG gas

CNG & LPG gas supply and infrastructure costs are generally lower than other alternative non-blended fuels. The price of bulk CNG & LPG delivered to service stations is usually more economical in terms of energy content than for gasoline. Cost of 1 kg CNG is ₹43.40 (USD 0.59) in Delhi, while 1 liter of petrol is around ₹101.19 (USD 1.38), and for diesel, it is ₹88.62 (USD1.21). The high cost of petrol & diesel and the emission of greenhouse gases make CNG a desirable option for vehicle owners. The growing number of auto drivers are moving towards CNG, fueling the demand for CNG kits and driving the growth of the India automotive CNG/LPG kit market.

Restraints

Electric-vehicle inclination in the region

Several Indian cities are planning to replace their current fuel-based bus fleets with electric buses. There is a shift in public transportation toward using electric buses, which will boost the growth of commercial electric vehicles in the forecast period and reduce the demand for CNG & LPG Indian kits. In a bid to support the local manufacturing capabilities of automakers, the Indian government announces the National Electric Mobility Mission Project (NEMMP). With this roadmap, the Government of India plans to make electric vehicles economically viable and self-sustaining in the coming years. Tesla, one of the world's leading electric car manufacturers, has entered the Indian market as well. All these factors are likely to affect the demand for CNG/LPG kits in India and hamper the growth of the India automotive CNG/LPG Kit market.

Impact of COVID-19 in the industry

COVID-19 negatively affected the India automotive CNG/LPG Kit market as people stopped going out due to lockdown restrictions imposed by the Indian government to check the spread of the deadly coronavirus. Following the declaration of a nationwide lockdown, Indian companies began working from home. As a result, the automotive industry came to a standstill, and the demand for CNG/LPG kits declined drastically. As the lockdown restrictions eased by year's end, most companies allowed their employees to continue working from home, affecting the recovery of the Indian automotive CNG/LPG Kit market. However, with the vaccination drive going in full swing, the sales of automobiles in India are expected to increase significantly by the end of 2021, contributing to the market's recovery.

India Automotive CNG/LPG Kit Market: By Kit Type

The India automotive CNG/LPG Kit market can be classified as CNG or LPG, depending on the kit types. The CNG kit sector is expected to grow at a rapid rate during the forecast period. Among CNG-powered vehicles, autos occupy the majority of the market. Buses, cars, and light commercial vehicles are also increasingly using CNG fuel and indirectly contributing to the growing demand for CNG kits in the India automotive CNG/LPG kit market. On the other hand, LPG kits in India's automotive CNG/LPG kit market are likely to be hindered by prolonged storage and tank size challenges in the coming years. This is expected to hamper the growth rate of the LPG kits market in India over the forecast period of 2021-2027.
