CNG is an environmentally friendly fuel that emits less carbon monoxide, hydrocarbon, particulate matter, and smoke than gasoline and diesel engines, helping to boost the market growth.  

Government is highly concerned about using low-emission vehicles

Compared to petroleum-powered cars, CNG vehicles have substantially lower running costs. Alternative fuels like CNG are more cost-effective now, especially for people who drive a lot given the growing demand and limited supply of gasoline, which is causing gas prices to climb. This is due to the fact that, depending on how frequently the user drives their vehicle, the initial cost of CNG or LPG is easily offset by the money saved in a few years. Over the years, the cost of gasoline has climbed significantly, whereas CNG and LPG prices have increased considerably more slowly. This might be a key factor in raising the market share of CNG in the future.  

Hikes in Natural gas prices hamper the car seal

50-60% increase in gas prices over the past 12 months, CNG car sales bookings were declining 10-15%. According to MMR 29,535 units was the peak happened in March 2022, volumes dropped to 25,480 units in July. CNG-powered vehicle sales have been consistently dropping since April. CNG prices in the national capital have registered a 35 percent increase since December 2021, when they hovered around the Rs 53 mark, and now retail at Rs 71.61 per kilogram, a significant 35 percent increase. Mumbai saw CNG prices go up by Rs 4 per kilogram taking the retail cost to Rs 76 per kilogram. As a result, increasing prices are expected to hamper the sale of CNG cars through the forecast period

The growth in the industry would have been higher at about 26% if we were to include the sales of Tata Motors, which has stopped reporting data on a monthly basis to SIAM ie Society of Indian Automobile Manufacture. Maruti Suzuki India, one of the largest passenger vehicle manufacturers in the country, is also the market leader in the CNG space which sold 142,850 passenger vehicles in the local market. Thanks to introducing 8 models from the current line-up of 14 models in the passenger vehicle range with a CNG option, it accounts for almost 96% market share in the segment. India CNG and LPG vehicle MarketBy fuel type, the India CNG and LPG vehicles market is segmented as, CNG and LPG. CNG vehicle are expected to hold larger market share by 2029 and is projected higher CAGR throughout the forecast period. While CNG is a commercially viable alternative fuel for vehicles with internal combustion engines, including cars, motorcycles, and light trucks, in addition to being environment friendly, a CNG-powered vehicle offers significant cost savings over its petrol or diesel competitors. The high cost of gasoline (Rs 109.98 per litter in Mumbai on November 8) and diesel (Rs 94.14 per litter in Mumbai on November 8) in comparison to CNG's cost of Rs 57.54 per kg is the main driver of consumer switch to CNG. Inherently, CNG-powered vehicles have greater fuel economy and much lower operating costs than petrol or diesel-powered vehicles. CNG fuelling, however, takes longer because there are fewer stations. As a result, selecting a route that passes by a CNG station requires additional planning before taking the road. However, automobile customers who use their vehicles frequently realize that cheaper CNG is a good substitute for gasoline and diesel, which has made them happy. Out of the 11 CNG models on sale, a total of 1, 01, 412 CNG cars were sold in India between April to Sept 21. Maruti Suzuki India’s accounted for 81 percent of total CNG units sold with sales of 82,351 units, with its seven models – Alto, S-Presso, Celerio, WagonR, Dzire, Ertiga, and Eeco. The balance is 19%, accounting for 19,061 units of Hyundai Motor India’s account with four models – Grand i10, Santro, Aura, and Xcent. Apart from reducing crude oil imports, the natural gas infrastructure development plan has the potential to create 400,000 new jobs. Three-wheelers and light commercial vehicle drivers, who switch to CNG, could see monthly income increase by Rs 5000-8000 By kit type, the retro fitment Kit segment is expected to be the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period. Retro fitment kits have a faster-growing demand compared to venturi kits due to their offering of higher fuel economy and better control of emissions in vehicles. The central Government is expected to allow the retrofitting of BS-VI petrol cars with CNG kits, which could lower fuel consumption by 40-50%. The road transport ministry published a draft notification establishing emission and other standards for such retrofitting. This is a positive move by the government because CNG as fuel will provide significant relief to the general public from the expensive cost of fuel. Since the government has proposed retrofitting CNG kits in vehicles with engine capacities of up to 1500 CC, it will cover all cars and some SUVs, according to the ministry. This will be allowed for vehicles with GVWs of up to 3.5 tonnes, and type approvals for vehicles retrofitted with CNG kits will be valid for three years. According to industry sources, the retrofitting of CNG in such vehicle kits could cost around Rs 50,000 per vehicle, but the owners will soon repay the cost due to fuel savings. Maruti Suzuki, the country's largest automaker, announced that it has launched a CNG kit for its best-selling little car, the Alto, in the national capital region, priced at Rs 43,545.

Economic, performance, safety, and convenience are all important considerations for any buyer looking to purchase an automobile. if the government and industry can collaborate and deliver these benefits for CNG. Customers are drawn to CNG because it has cheaper operational costs in the long run. However, due to the production challenges with CNG vehicles, the initial costs can be significant. Because natural gas must be kept at high pressure, CNG cars require specialized and huge fuel tanks. Because these tanks are more expensive to construct, the selling price of CNG automobiles is slightly higher. The availability of low-pressure, high-density CNG storage devices can offer more cost-effective, small-scale refueling options without sacrificing total range. It may also result in lower fuel production or compression costs at existing commercial fuelling stations. Lower pressure feasibility allows for tank modification and greater placement possibilities in a vehicle. This opens up possibilities for low-cost home refuelling devices. CNG vehicles can be expected to be substantially cheaper in the impending BS-VI regime. This is due to the high cost of an after-treatment device for diesel. As a result, CNG can be positioned as a cost-effective, fuel-efficient, and environmentally friendly alternative to traditional diesel or gasoline fuel.
