Increased adoption of natural gas vehicles globally, and supporting regulations owing to its zero emission of greenhouse gases is anticipated to drive the global pressure vessel market for alternative fuels.
Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/01/2017 -- The Pressure Vessel Market for alternative fuels was valued at $3,038 million in 2016, and is expected to reach at $8,529 million by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 16.6% from 2017 to 2023. CNG pressure vessels are widely used for storage and transportation of liquids and gases when configured as tanks.
Pressure vessels are the containers that store fluids under high pressure. These vessels are used in industries, such as petroleum refining, chemical, power, food & beverages, and pharmaceuticals. Pressure vessels are categorized into three main types horizontal, vertical, and spherical. Shell, head, nozzle, and support are the main components of a pressure vessel. The market for CNG pressure vessel is driven by the increase in the number of natural gas vehicle (NGV) vehicles around the world. Also, due the increase in the average prices of fuels over last one decade, low-cost natural gases are being preferred in Asia-Pacific and LAMEA region.
