“Changing environmental norms and regulations and increasing vehicle production to fuel the demand for automotive fuel tanks across the globe”
The global automotive fuel tank market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.58% from 2016 to 2021, to reach a market size of USD 17.38 billion by 2021. The key factors responsible for the growth of this market include the rising vehicle production and norms pertaining to evaporative emissions.
“45 L–70 L fuel tanks: Fastest-growing market”
The 45 L–70 L segment of the automotive fuel tank market is estimated to account for the largest market share, in terms of value, in 2016. This growth can be mainly attributed to the growing demand for sports utility vehicles and multi-utility vehicles in the global passenger car market. Moreover, the recent trends of crossovers and compact SUVs have accelerated the demand for fuel tanks in the 45 L–70 L capacity range. Asia-Oceania is estimated to be the largest market for 45 L–70 L fuel tanks, owing to the high demand for mid-segment passenger cars in the region.
“Asia-Oceania: Market with high growth potential”
Asia-Oceania offers more growth opportunities for the automotive fuel tank market than the matured markets of Europe and North America, owing to the cost advantages and sizable population in the region. The Government of India is attempting to boost its economy through the Make in India campaign. The automotive sector plays a crucial role in the Indian economy, as it contributes 7% of the country’s GDP (volume). India has allowed 100% foreign direct investment (FDI) with no minimum investment criteria for the automotive sector. China is another major contributor to the automobile production in Asia-Oceania. The country accounts for approximately 26% of the global automobile production. Other countries in Asia-Oceania, such as South Korea and Japan, have strong technological capabilities, prompting OEMs to invest in the region. These factors make the Asia-Oceania region an attractive market for automotive fuel tanks.
