A recent report published by Infinium Global Research on flex fuel
engine market provides in-depth analysis of segments and sub-segments in the
global as well as regional flex fuel engine market. The study also highlights
the impact of drivers, restraints, and macro indicators on the global and
regional flex fuel engine market over the short term as well as long term. The
report is a comprehensive presentation of trends, forecast and dollar values of
global flex fuel engine market. According to the report, the global flex fuel
engine market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.7% over the forecast period
A flex fuel engine operates on two different fuels from the same
tank. It is designed to run on more than one fuel like gasoline or diesel that
can be stored in the same tank. Flex fuel engines have properties such as
flexible, independent, and resource-saving and can start the engine, easily.
The flex fuel engine reduces petroleum content that helps preserve existing
stores of fossil fuels intake. It has the capability to burn any proportion of
gasoline in the combustion chamber. Spark timing and injection are structured
according to the combination of both fuels detected by fuel mixture sensor in flex
fuel engines. Recently, vehicle manufacturers are developing new technologies
such as flex start, to increase vehicle efficiency and decrease vehicle
Countries with limited oil reserves are continuously looking for
less oil consumption that is the major driving factor of the flex fuel engine
market. Furthermore, factors such as strict environmental regulations,
exhausting natural sources of diesel, increasing vehicle emission norms, and
low-dependence on oil import are other driving factors of the market. Ethanol
burns cleaner than gasoline that led to an increase in the demand for the flex
fuel engine. Several flex fuel vehicles make use of ethanol that originates
from corn and sugar cane, a viable alternative to purchasing foreign oil.
However, the high production cost of ethanol is restraining the growth of the
market. Moreover, increasing use of second-generation ethanol in flexible fuel
vehicle is expected to provide growth opportunities to the market players.
Geographically, North America dominates the global flex fuel
engine market due to increasing demand for fuel-efficient vehicles in countries
such as the U.S. and Canada. Brazil is the largest market for the flex fuel
engine and has the highest penetration rate for flex fuel vehicles. The fleet
of flexible-fuel vehicles in the U.S. is the second-largest in the world after
Brazil. Asia-Pacific is the second-largest market owing to increasing demand
for alternative fuels in this region.
