Following President Obama’s State of the Union address, in which reference was made to diversifying America’s energy and fuel markets, the role of natural gas as a fuel source is set to once again become a top of mind issue. This briefing will lay out a comprehensive overview of the heavy-duty vehicle and powertrain options available in North America. Projections of component costs and expected economies of scale from the increase in production to 2017 are also offered. Growth strategies for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), as well as powertrain and other component suppliers, will also be discussed.
Why you should attend:
• Learn about the current natural gas engine and truck offerings available as well as some of the products currently in development stages;
• Hear the major drivers and restraints for the expected growth in natural gas trucks;
• Participate in an interactive Q&A session.
This briefing will benefit vehicle manufacturers, engine suppliers, component suppliers and dealers by discussing the capabilities of these vehicles and providing forward-looking projections for the North American heavy-duty natural gas truck market.
“The continuation of high diesel fuel costs is a major concern for the freight industry and the North American economy as a whole,” said Research Analyst Ryan Carmichael. “By diversifying their fleets to include natural gas, trucks operators can significantly reduce one of their input costs. Commercial vehicle manufacturers have begun to roll out numerous heavy-duty truck options featuring proven natural gas engines that are setting the industry up for significant growth in coming years.”
