Alternative Fuel and Hybrid Vehicle Market was valued at $318 billion in 2016 and is expected to reach $819 billion by 2024, having a CAGR of 12.8% during the forecast period of 2017 to 2024. The passenger car segment garnered the highest revenue share in the global alternative fuel and hybrid vehicle market.

Vehicles that use fuels other than conventional fuels such as gasoline and diesel are called as Alternative fuel and hybrid vehicles. Emerging depletion of conventional oil and gas reserves at an alarming rate has stimulated the adoption of these vehicles all over the globe. Moreover, the emission of less harmful compounds such as oxides of carbon, nitrogen, and sulfur from these vehicles has made them eco-friendly. In addition to this, some of these vehicles use electricity as their power source. The electric energy is stored in the vehicular batteries and can be recharged at charging stations. Further, the hybrid vehicles are capable of using both conventional and alternative fuels as a source of power. The driver can actually switch between these two power modes while driving as per the requirement. The electricity based vehicles have emerged out as a lucrative technology by offering easy chargeability and noiseless urban transportation. As per a survey, in 2016, the total sales of electric drive vehicles in US alone stood at 5, 04,060 units.

Market Determinants

The global AFHV market has exhibited a rapid growth in the recent years as a result of increased demand for fuel-efficient vehicles, stringent government laws & regulations regarding vehicle emission, and improved in public charging infrastructure. Technological improvisations in alternative fuel vehicles and favorable government initiatives such as high investment in electric and hybrid buses for public transit are boosting the market growth. However, fluctuating cost of fuel, lack of awareness and high initial cost of infrastructure might act as some major restraints to the growth. On the other hand, advancement in alternative fuel technologies, increasing interest in eco-friendly vehicles and continuously increasing government initiatives are expected to create huge opportunities for the growth of market in the near future.
