Global Diesel Engine Market to Reach US$ 266.3 Billion by 2027, Impelled by Demand for Heavy-duty Equipment

Published on Apr 13, 2021

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Diesel Engine Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global diesel engine market size reached US$ 212.4 Billion in 2021. A diesel engine is an internal combustion (IC) engine in which the air is compressed to a high temperature before being injected into a cylindrical vessel to ignite the fuel. It converts stored chemical energy into mechanical energy that can be used to power large tractors, marine vessels, freight trucks, and locomotives. Diesel engines are commercially available as two-stroke and four-stroke engines. As compared to other fuel engines, diesel engines exhibit higher thermal efficiency, durability, and greater torque. On account of these benefits, these engines find widespread applications across various industries, such as mining, construction, and agriculture.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report. 

Global Diesel Engine Market Trends:

The global diesel engine market is majorly being driven by the rising demand for commercial and heavy-duty vehicles.
