The global alternative fuel and hybrid vehicle market was valued at $352.0 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $7,976.0 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 34.5% from 2021 to 2030.

Alternative fuel vehicle is a vehicle designed to operate on compressed natural gas, electricity, biofuel, bio-diesel, fuel cell, liquid nitrogen, and dimethyl ether. Different types of natural gas vehicles include, dedicated vehicles, bi-fuel vehicles, and dual fuel vehicles. Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles are considered as alternative fuel vehicle, as the primary input fuel is electricity. Moreover, alternative fuel vehicles create less or no CO2 emissions and also aid in reducing the pollution.

The global decrease in oil reserves, growth in prices of fossil fuels, increase in adoption of clean mobility solutions, stringent government norms for emission control, and growth in supportive government policies to promote adoption of alternative fuel vehicles are factors that drive the growth of the market. However, low fuel economy and performance associated with alternative fuel vehicles and lack of infrastructure to support alternative fuel vehicles are factors expected to hamper the growth of the market. Furthermore, development of charging infrastructure, electrification of public fleet, and technological advancements are expected to offer growth opportunities during the forecasted period.

The alternative fuel and hybrid vehicle market is segmented on the basis of fuel type, vehicle type, vehicle class, and region. By fuel type, the market is fragmented into hybrid vehicles, plugin hybrid vehicles, battery electric vehicles, and others. On the basis of vehicle type, it is fragmented into passenger cars, light commercial vehicles, and heavy commercial vehicles. Based on vehicle class, the market is divided into economical vehicles, mid-priced vehicles, and luxury vehicles. By region, the report is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

Alternative Fuel and Hybrid Vehicle Market by Fuel Type

Some leading companies profiled in the alternative fuel and hybrid vehicle industry report include, BMW Group, BYD Company Ltd., Ford Motor Company, Honda Motor Co., Ltd., Mercedes-Benz Group AG, Mitsubishi Motors Corporation, Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., Tesla, Inc., Toyota Motor Corporation, and Volkswagen AG.

Growth in Prices of Fossil Fuels

Several countries across the globe face rise in the price of fossil fuels. For instance, in 2021, Europe registered increase in gas prices owing to several factors, such as reduced gas supply from Russia, low storage levels, extreme weather conditions, and carbon pricing. This increase in price of fossil fuels results in adoption of vehicles running on alternate fuel as a future mobility solution. Moreover, fossil fuel-based vehicles emit harmful gases and contribute to increased level of pollution. However, vehicles based on alternative fuel do not emit CO2 emissions or harmful gases, which make alternative fuel vehicle an efficient mobility solution with low operating cost. Hence, growth in prices of fossil fuel is expected to contribute in increase in adoption of alternative fuel and hybrid vehicle during the forecast period.

Increase in Adoption of Clean Mobility Solutions

Increase in the adoption of clean mobility solutions is observed globally due to climatic changes. Continuous usage of fossil fuels in automobiles is a major factor resulting in climate change. Vehicles that run on alternative fuels, such as natural gas, electricity, biofuel, bio-diesel, fuel cell, liquid nitrogen, and dimethyl ether result in lesser carbon emissions. Increasing environmental concerns among consumers, introduction of stringent emission regulations, and launch of advanced vehicles supporting alternative fuels are expected to increase the adoption of alternative fuel and hybrid vehicle market during the forecast period.

Growth in Supportive Government Policies to Promote Adoption of Alternative Fuel Vehicles

Several countries are taking numerous initiatives to achieve net zero emissions target. Different governments across the globe promote adoption of alternative fuel vehicles, such as electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid vehicles. Several governments are providing various benefits to buyers on adoption of electric vehicle in their region. For instance, in 2022, the Government of India has increased subsidy on purchase of electric vehicle to promote adoption of electric vehicle under Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Hybrid & Electric Vehicle (FAME) scheme. This growth in supportive government policies to promote adoption of alternative fuel vehicles is anticipated to drive the growth of alternative fuel and hybrid vehicle industry.
