The CNG for Vehicle market study now available with Market Study Report, LLC, is a collation of valuable insights related to market size, market share, profitability margin, growth dynamics, and regional proliferation of this business vertical. The study further includes a detailed analysis pertaining to key challenges, growth opportunities, and application segments of the CNG for the Vehicle market.


CNG fuel is considered as a green fuel, emitting less harmful exhaust gases. This has lead to the development of different ways suitable for reducing the number of harmful gasses emitted from the exhaust of the vehicle. Different ways include the introduction of 100% electric vehicles, making some big or small changes in diesel as well as petrol engines to meet those requirements. One such option is amongst us for a long time and has got more reliable than before. Installation of CNG (Compressed Natural) Gas kits in the petrol vehicles. 

The ECO-net project involves the development of fifteen LNG and bioGNV refueling stations, and one hydrogen station in Spain over the next three years.

The European Commission will support the development of fifteen LNG and bioGNV refueling stations, and one hydrogen station in Spain within the framework of the ECO-net project. Coordinated by Enagás, the ECO-net project aims to contribute to the decarbonization of transport.

Registrations of natural gas commercial vehicles increased by more than 30% over the past year, according to ACEA.

A total of 14,313 CNG commercial vehicles were registered in Europe during the past year, according to figures by the European Automobile Manufacturers' Association. Compared to the 10,839 units registered in 2018, the segment grew by 32.1%.


A new study by the German Automobile Club reveals that natural gas-powered vehicles are currently the least contaminating when you take all factors into account.

Natural gas is currently the fuel that causes less harm to the environment, according to a new study by ADAC (General German Automobile Club). Natural gas-powered vehicles are followed by electric and diesel cars, which are almost on the same level.


Electricity is often touted as the most environmentally friendly alternative to traditional gasoline. However, a recent study shows that this is not the case: the title would be more fitting for compressed natural gas.

Over its entire life cycle, the CNG vehicle has a better greenhouse gas balance than all conventional engines. This statement is surprising at first glance but makes sense when comparing CNG with other options.


As CNG is available in India, so its usage is better for our National Economy. Some fleet owners have reported a reduction in operating costs of up to 60% as compared to Petrol Engines and 40% as compared to Diesel Engines. It makes the car Bi-Fuel, so it can be driven on Petrol/Diesel as well as CNG. CNG offers better ignition reduced emissions and thus becomes environment friendly.

What is CNG?

CNG, also known as compressed natural gas, is an eco-friendly alternative to gasoline. Made by compressing natural gas (methane) down to less than 1% of its volume, CNG fuel is safer than gasoline and diesel because it is non-toxic and does not contaminate groundwater. This natural gas is the same gas that you use daily to heat your home and water, cook on the stove, and even dry your clothes in a dryer. The use of CNG fuel is becoming more popular with both commercial and non-commercial vehicles.
