A gas engine is fundamentally an internal combustion engine which runs on gas fuel such as biogas, coal gas, landfill gas (or natural gas), and producer gas. It creates motive power. Usually, gas engines are heavy-duty industrial engines capable of running continuously at full load. A gas engine generator with a simple mechanism consists of an engine, a generator, and a heat exchanger. Gas engines primarily run on natural gas. Natural gas is one of the most important sources of energy. Natural gas is abundantly available. Also, it offers several environmental benefits. Natural gas is primarily composed of methane. On combustion, methane releases carbon dioxide and water vapor. Coal and oil have a high carbon ratio and high sulfur and nitrogen content. Hence, on combustion, they release higher levels of carbon, nitrogen oxide, and sulfur dioxide as well as ash particles. Gas engines are being increasingly used for power generation across the globe. Gas engines generate low emissions, minor vibrations, and create less noise. Their maintenance costs less expensive. Gas engines are efficient and economical for heavy-duty operations.
The rising demand for electricity with decline in natural gas prices is expected to drive the gas engines market during the forecast period. With rising urbanization and globalization, the work culture and lifestyle have changed, which has eventually increased the usage of electricity. Households, production & manufacturing companies, and electric vehicles are large consumers of electricity. Since electricity generation is one of the major uses of gas engines, the increasing consumption of electricity is likely to drive the gas engines market in the next few years. Additionally, increasing concerns about the environment are augmenting the gas engines market. Furthermore, several countries across the world have taken initiatives to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, which has resulted in diminishing the usage of coal for energy generation. This also is expected to boost the demand for natural gas engines in the near future. However, exploration and supply of most of the world’s natural gas is concentrated in a few countries, which has resulted in price inequality for distributors. This factor is estimated to restrain the gas engines market during the forecast period. Additionally, factors such as concerns related to constant supply of natural gas and large difference between prices of natural gas and alternative fuels are likely to hinder the gas engines market from 2018 to 2026.
The gas engines market has been segmented based on power, fuel type, end-user, application, and region.
