Governments around the world have been looking at means to reduce the carbon emissions from their respective countries. Initiatives such as monitoring the carbon emissions from factories, and increasing recycling have all led to a reduction in carbon emissions. Another initiative has been the introduction of fuel efficient vehicles that further add to the reduction in carbon emissions. The next step for various governments and automotive manufacturers has been the research on alternative fuels which have almost nil carbon emissions. Rising price of crude oil is another reason as to why governments are now looking at alternative fuels for vehicles. Further to this, governments want to try and reduce their dependency on crude oi especially if it is sourced from outside the country. Governments would rather invest in alternative fuel technology and be self-reliant. The investment in research on alternative fuel technology is not only being contributed by governments, but by the energy companies themselves as they realize that alternative fuels will be absolutely essential over the next two decades.

On the basis of type of fuels, this report segments the market as

Natural gas
Liquefied petroleum gas

North America is currently the leading region which in terms of investment in alternative fuel technology. This can be understood from the fact that North America is largest consumer of energy globally and as such, will need to ensure that there is an alternate source of fuel at least in the next 20 years. Environmental regulations in Europe have forced governments here to also look at alternative sources of fuel while the APAC region is lagging behind in terms of investment in alternative fuels. The market has been segmented based on the following geographies

Middle East and Africa
