MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Decreasing air quality levels in highly industrialized nations are forcing governments to bring in radical measures for emission control. Most of these programs will be aimed at cutting down the number of internal combustion engine (ICE)-propelled vehicles on the road. As a result, the sales of electric vehicles (EVs) are expected to exceed 2 million units globally by 2020.
New analysis from Frost & Sullivan, Strategic Analysis of Emission Control Programs in Key Markets Towards 2020 (https://www.frost.com/nedc), finds that while alternative propulsion vehicles continue to make inroads in several countries, ICE vehicles will constitute close to 95 percent of total production by 2020. Transmission technologies like dual clutch transmissions and high-speed automatics will increasingly gain acceptance in large and small vehicle segments looking to minimize friction and boost fuel economy.

"In North America, higher pressure gasoline direct injection systems, spray guided injection, advanced electric assisted solutions and waste gate turbo technologies will be key areas of focus," said Frost & Sullivan Automotive and Transportation Senior Research Analyst Sudeep Kaippalli. "European countries will enforce stronger regulations for nitrogen oxide and particulate matter emissions in diesel vehicles."
Unfortunately, not enough is being done to increase consumer acceptance of low emission technologies. In regions like China and the United Kingdom, where radical emission control measures are being introduced, factors that create buyer acceptance – charging infrastructure and selling price incentives – will need to be spruced up to attract customers.
"Expanding the network of fast charging stations through public or proprietary models will be crucial to eliminate range anxiety and encourage the purchase of alternatively propelled vehicles," explained Kaippalli. "Such efforts will widen the scope of the EV service equipment industry in the short to medium term and play a significant role in improving global emission control."
Strategic Analysis of Emission Control Programs in Key Markets Towards 2020 is a Strategic Insight that is part of the Automotive & Transportation (http://www.automotive.frost.com) Growth Partnership Service program. The study aims to identify important emission control and fuel economy improvement programs in the global key markets, thereby determining what powertrain technologies would play pivotal roles in ensuring compliance in these regions.
