Off-Highway Engine Market

Over One-fourth Off-Highway Engines Sold Used in Agriculture Equipment: Fact.MR

Published : 01 Mar 2021 Industry: Automotive

The global off-highway engine market is set to experience rapid progress at close to 7% CAGR from 2021 to 2031. Over the past half-decade, demand has swelled at 2.3% CAGR, mostly for construction and agriculture equipment, small marine engines and gensets. Moreover, inception of industry 4.0 globally has mandated industry verticals to mobilize their supply chain networks.

Over the coming years, demand for off-Highway equipment is expected to rise exponentially with large-scale investments in infrastructure development and capacity building by governments around the globe. Similarly, large-scale industrial truck adoption by manufacturing and warehousing industries in order to boost productivity, maintenance, and workplace safety is creating huge demand for off-highway engines.

Furthermore, increasing adventure tourism among all age groups has kicked-off power sports vehicle demand, by virtue of which, power sports engine manufacturing industries are staring at the market with a bold eye.  

However, the COVID-19 outbreak led to massive demand loss in off-highway engines. Cooperating to global lockdowns in order to prevent spread, infrastructure development was halted, global trade was disrupted, and people stopped spending on small power equipment such as power sports vehicles, lawn mowers, etc. All these resulted in plunged global off-highway engine demand. However, long-term prospects look bright with the resumption of activities and industries across regions.
