Global flex-fuel engine market in the compact-size segment: In 2015, Brazil and the US occupied the highest market share in the global compact-size segment. This market segment uses technologies like forced induction (turbocharged) and direct injection to downsize older generation cars of 2L-2.5L to make it compact-size. This technique helps the manufacturers to create powerful engines that enhance the performance of the vehicle. The number of cylinders used in these engines are lesser, making the vehicle lighter and reduces the friction in the engine.

The stringent government regulations to reduce carbon emissions is encouraging OEMs to produce power machines with lesser engine capacity. The introduction of these compact size engines will increase the fuel efficiency and reduce carbon emission. The passenger cars sector is the highest user of these compact size engines in the global market,” says Praveen Kumar, a lead analyst at Technavio for research on the powertrain.

Global flex-fuel engine market in the mid-size segment: The manufacturers in the market are focusing on downsizing full-size engines and increase the fuel efficiency to attract more consumers in this market segment. Recently, Ford Motor and FEV Engineering co-developed EcoBoost engines that provide around 30% more power and are light weight engines. These developments in the mid-size segment will boost the demand for these engines in the market.

Global flex-fuel engine market in the full-size segment: The vendors in the market are launching full-size engines with innovative technology features, which will contribute to the growth of this market segment. Some of the features implemented include VVT, piston-cooling jets, direct fuel injection, turbo, and cylinder deactivation. These features improve the fuel efficiency and power of these engines.
