Frequently Asked Questions

The electric power, automotive, manufacturing, and transportation industries, among others, in developing countries such as India, China, and Brazil are highly dependent on fossil fuels. Rise in population and the lack of supporting infrastructure for electric technologies are the major factors supporting the internal combustion engine market. Electric motors, electric devices, solar plants, and wind projects are more expensive than conventional internal combustion engines, which is driving the preference of various countries toward diesel, gasoline or gas powered engines. Further, improvements in the emission norms for diesel engines for which various industries are shifting on gas engines for low emissions. According to The World Bank Group data for access to electricity, only ~91.6% of the population has access to electricity in South Asia, while others are still lack access to electricity. Hence, south Asian countries are strongly adopting natural gas for power generation application. Further, electricity consumption for basic applications in countries such as China and India are increasing with the surge in population, owing to which they are opting for various types of internal combustion engines such as gas engines for electricity generation.
Due to rising global warming, governments of various countries are imposing certain restrictions to control the emissions of diesel and petrol engines, thus compelling engine manufacturers to develop technologies to make internal combustion engines more efficient and produce less emissions. Manufacturers and customers are now shifting their focus towards the use of alternate fuel in internal combustion engines. For instance, natural gas power IC engines release less emissions to generate a sufficient amount of power with high efficiency. The emission monitoring and regulatory bodies from various countries are imposing stringent regulations on the use of diesel engines and generators. To meet these regulatory standards, various industries are deploying gas engine and generators for power generation.
The internal combustion engines that generate power by burning gasoline can meet the power-generation requirements for various application. The most important industries which use gasoline powered engines are automobiles, small marine units, moderate-sized stationary pumping, lighting plants, machine and power tools. Owing to the carbon-emissions from gasoline powered internal combustion engine being the highest, several countries are taking measures to shift to cleaner alternative fuels for power generation requirements. There has been tremendous rise in demand for electric vehicles leading to a consequent fall in the demand for gasoline fueled vehicles. Since the transportation industry is one of the largest consumers of gasoline powered internal combustion engines, this fall in demand for gasoline fueled vehicles will reduce the growth prospects of the market across the globe.
