The CNG Tanks/Cylinders Market is projected to show steady growth during the forecast period.

Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) tanks are containers designed to store natural gas at high pressure, reducing its volume for storage and transportation. These tanks are essential components of vehicles and fuel systems that use CNG as a fuel source. They are made from high-strength materials like steel, aluminium, or composites, and operate at high pressures ranging from 3,000 to 3,600 psi. The storage capacity varies depending on the size and design, with common sizes for automotive applications ranging from 5 to 20 gallons (18 to 75 litres). CNG tanks are equipped with safety features like pressure relief devices and burst disc assemblies. They are used in various applications, including vehicles, industrial processes, and residential or commercial use for backup power generation. Some CNG tanks use composite materials like carbon fiber for weight reduction and corrosion resistance. Regular inspection and maintenance are crucial for the continued safety and performance of CNG tanks.

Market Drivers

  • A rise in the usage of natural gas in the automobile sector is expected to surge the CNG tanks/ cylinders market growth

The automotive industry is increasingly adopting natural gas, particularly compressed natural gas (CNG), due to environmental, energy security, and economic reasons. CNG is a cleaner alternative to traditional fuels, producing lower emissions and attracting governments and environmental agencies. It is also cost-effective, with stable prices in some regions. Natural gas is domestically produced, reducing dependency on imported oil. Government incentives and centralized refuelling stations make the transition to CNG more feasible. This trend is expected to drive the adoption of CNG vehicles in the automotive industry. For instance, In March 2022, Maruti Suzuki has achieved a cumulative sales record of 1 million S-CNG vehicles. The S-CNG vehicles undergo rigorous design, development, and testing at Maruti Suzuki's top-tier Research and development facility before they are made available to customers. They are designed from the first stage to offer exceptional safety, performance, durability, and high fuel efficiency, ensuring customer peace of mind with a range of reliable features.

  • Increase in environmental awareness surged the CNG Tanks/ Cylinders Market growth

Vehicle emissions, particularly from fossil fuel-powered engines, contribute significantly to air pollution, causing smog formation and respiratory issues. These pollutants, particularly fine particulate matter (PM2.5), are linked to respiratory problems like asthma and bronchitis, as well as cardiovascular issues like heart attacks and strokes. Reducing vehicle emissions can lead to improved air quality, reduced respiratory symptoms, and a lower incidence of respiratory infections, especially in vulnerable populations like children and the elderly. Additionally, improved air quality can reduce hospital admissions for respiratory and cardiovascular issues, benefiting individual health and reducing healthcare system burden. Long-term health benefits are also achieved by minimizing exposure to harmful pollutants, as long-term exposure to air pollution is linked to chronic health conditions like lung cancer and cardiovascular diseases. In April 2023, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released its most recent proposal for multi-pollutant emission regulations for Model Year (MY) 2027 and subsequent light-duty and medium-duty vehicles. The proposal aims to decrease greenhouse gas and criteria pollutants emissions, improve public health, and save drivers money by reducing fuel and maintenance costs, requiring automakers to produce and sell new vehicles with lower pollution levels.

  • An increase in the sales of LNG automobiles bolsters the CNG Tanks/ Cylinders Market growth

The adoption of LNG vehicles as an alternative to diesel-based vehicles is growing due to several factors. Firstly, LNG is considered a cleaner-burning fuel, producing fewer emissions of particulate matter, nitrogen oxides, and sulfur oxides. This makes it an attractive option for companies and governments looking to reduce their environmental impact. Secondly, LNG prices have historically been more stable than diesel prices, making it an economically viable alternative. This stability and potential cost savings can be significant drivers for fleet operators and businesses, especially in regions with abundant natural gas. Governments often offer incentives and subsidies to encourage the adoption of cleaner fuels. According to UNFCCC, Alternative fuels like ethanol, CBG, biodiesel, and LNG are gaining popularity as a sustainable alternative to conventional fossil fuels, reducing India's energy security, reducing CO2 emissions, and contributing to economic growth, making them a promising alternative.

Asia Pacific region is expected to grow significantly.

The Asia Pacific region is driving global economic growth due to factors such as population growth, rapid urbanization, emerging markets like China, India, and Southeast Asia, manufacturing and trade, technological advancements, infrastructure development, consumer markets, and global economic shifts. The region's large population and labor force contribute to economic development, while rapid urbanization leads to increased economic activities, infrastructure development, and higher living standards. Emerging markets like China, India, and Southeast Asia attract investments and contribute to global economic expansion. The region has become a hub for manufacturing and trade, with technological advancements in artificial intelligence, robotics, and renewable energy. Infrastructure development, including transportation, energy, and telecommunications, is crucial for economic growth and connectivity. The rising middle class in Asia Pacific countries also attracts businesses and investors.

Market Restraints

  • Vehicle range and fueling period might restrain the CNG tanks/ cylinders market growth

CNG vehicles may have limitations in terms of range and refuelling time compared to traditional gasoline and diesel vehicles. The lack of convenient access to refuelling stations can deter potential users, particularly in regions with long distances that require long-distance travel.

Market Developments

  • March 2023- VoltaGrid has chosen Quantum Fuel Systems to deliver over 180 CNG trailers, allowing the company to significantly scale its CNG delivery capabilities. Quantum has offered VoltaGrid with its VPLite45/40 trailers, which have a gaseous capacity of around 472,000 standard cubic feet and weigh less than 59,000 pounds. These lightweight, compact trailers are certified for use in the U.S. and will be used to provide intelligent, affordable, clean, and turnkey power and fuel solutions for remote and grid-parallel applications.
  • August 2023- Tata Motors has introduced a twin-cylinder CNG setup in the Tiago hatchback and Tigor sedan, with four models now available. The Tiago iCNG stands out with its intelligent placement of twin CNG cylinders below the luggage area, allowing for a larger boot space, unlike any other CNG car. The Altroz and Punch models also feature this twin-cylinder technology.
