Off-Highway Engine Market

Off-Highway Engine Market to Expand 2x, with Extensive Applications in Construction & Agriculture: Fact.MR

Published : 20 Sep 2021 Industry: Automotive

A newly published Fact.MR report expects the off-highway engine market to reach a value of US$ 15.8 Bn by 2031, registering a CAGR of 7% throughout the 2021-2031 forecast period. By 2021, sales are anticipated to reach US$ 8.1 Bn, driven majorly by applications in the construction and agriculture industries respectively.

Historically, from 2016 to 2020, off-highway engine sales were sluggish, expanding at a CAGR of 2.3%, as high-grade mechanization was still in its fledgling stage. While prospects for the construction industry in general dimmed during the coronavirus pandemic, demand for off-highway engines remained sustained as deployment for farming continued unabated. 

Government measures to improve farm mechanization, particularly in emerging nations, have boosted demand for agricultural machineries such as power tillers and heavy-duty tractors. Increased private sector participation in infrastructure projects, combined with increased government spending on these projects has fueled demand for construction machinery equipment, which in turn has fueled demand for engines for off-highway vehicles such as loaders, excavators, and truck-mounted cranes among others.

Key Takeaways from the Market Study

  1. Global off-highway engines demand to surge nearly 2x from 2021 to 2031
  2. By power output, < 50 HP off-highway engines to capture 60% of market demand
  3. Agriculture to be fastest growing application industry, clocking a 6% value CAGR
  4. In terms of capacity, < 4 L off-highway engines to add 2.1x market value
  5. U.S off-highway engine market likely to surge at around 7% value CAGR
  6. China expected to develop at an unrivaled rate of close to 8.2% through 2031
  7. India to register a CAGR of 8% across the 2021-2031 assessment period

“Increased scramble for attaining energy efficiency and fuel economy across various industrial sectors is expected to aid the growth of off-highway engine sales,” says an analyst at Fact.MR.

Competitive Landscape

Prominent off-highway engine manufacturers are emphasizing on introducing low-emission producing engines, consistent with regional frameworks on curbing emission levels. Additionally, expansion strategies such as partnerships, collaborations and acquisitions are also relied upon.

  1. In 2017, Herero 4x4 selected FPT Industrial S.p.A to equip its fleet with the latter’s F1C Euro 6 engine and the 2840.6 FPT industrial gear for off-road applications. The engine offers high torque, regimen and reliability
  2. In October 2020, Cummins India initiated production of electronically controlled Cummins B4.5 engines with a power range of 121-200 horsepower. The new plant will initially have an annual production capacity of 30,000-50,000 engines, but it is geared to expand in the future.
