Market Size – USD 460.27 Billion in 2020, Market Growth - CAGR of 9.6%, Market Trends – Rise of environment-friendly fuel technologies. 

The global Alternative Fuel Vehicle (AFV) Market is expected to reach USD 954.78 Billion by 2028, according to a new report by Reports and Data. This can be mainly associated with the rise of fuel-efficient vehicles and depletion in the number of oil reserves.

Traditional fuels sources, including petroleum, is said to be depleting, since these fuels are typically not renewable, due to which there is a possibility that a day would come when the demand for these fuels may be more than their supply, creating a considerable world crisis. Also, the majority of oil fields (situated in the Middle East) in the world are associated with both economic and political problems. Determining a new method or solution for finding different countries to create new fuels would reduce the unrest and conflict resulting from the world’s dependence on fuel supply.

The high initial costs involved in the manufacturing of the alternative fuel market may hinder the growth of the market.

Key participants include Geely, Volvo, Jaguar Land Rover Limited, Ford Motor Company, Hyundai Motor Company, Toyota Motor Corporation, Mercedes-Benz, Gree, Honda Motor Co., Ltd., Wuliangye, Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., BYD Company Limited, Shell International B.V., Honda Motor Co., Ltd., Daimler AG, and Mitsubishi Motors, among others.
