April 14, 2023 | Automotive Industry

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Alternative Fuel and Hybrid Vehicle Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028," the global alternative fuel and hybrid vehicle market size reached US$ 524 Billion in 2022. Alternative fuel refers to any fuel that is not derived from petroleum or diesel, such as hydrogen, biofuels and natural gas. It is a renewable source of energy and emits fewer pollutants, making it a viable option for powering vehicles. On the other hand, a hybrid vehicle is a type of automobile that uses two or more sources of power to propel the vehicle. The sources of power used are usually an internal combustion engine and an electric motor. As a result, alternative fuel and hybrid vehicles are gaining traction among the masses due to the rising awareness regarding the environmental impact of traditional gasoline-powered vehicles. They offer a cleaner and more efficient way of transportation, and with continual advancements in technology, they are becoming more practical and affordable for everyday use. 

Global Alternative Fuel and Hybrid Vehicle Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by an enhanced focus on sustainable development. Coupled with the growing pollution level and changing climatic conditions, that has led to the rising demand for cleaner and more sustainable transportation options, which is impacting the alternative fuel and hybrid vehicle market. Along with this, numerous initiatives are undertaken by the governments to implement regulations and incentives, such as tax credits, subsidies, and mandates, for automakers to produce more fuel-efficient vehicles and encourage the adoption of alternative fuels and hybrid vehicles, further catalyzing the demand. Moreover, continual technological advancements have made alternative fuels and hybrid vehicles easy to operate and affordable, making them more accessible to consumers, which is acting as growth-inducing factors. Furthermore, numerous companies are setting sustainability goals that include reducing their carbon footprint and promoting environmental stewardship, thus encouraging them to adopt alternative fuels and hybrid vehicles for their fleets, which is a major driving factor. Other factors, including rapid urbanization, fluctuations in the prices of oil, rising investments in smart city developments and extensive research and development (R&D) activities, are also positively influencing the market.
