The global Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) Market demand is expected to reach 229,439 thousand units by 2025 at a 4.9% CAGR during the forecast period, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Rising need for fuel efficiency has resulted in engine downsizing and turbocharging, which is expected to escalate market growth over the coming years. Development of several advanced combustion modes such as homogeneous charge compression ignition (HCCI) is expected to catalyze the growth of the internal combustion engines market. The automotive ICE segment is expected to witness significant growth owing to high vehicle demand over the forecast period. Surging demand for high efficiency engines with low carbon emission is also expected to fuel segment growth.
Availability of alternative-fuel options such as propane auto gas and compressed natural gas as well as and electric vehicles is anticipated to challenge industry growth. However, a complete replacement by these substitutes may take a long time owing to the reliability and efficiency offered by IC engine technology.
