Description:    Compressed Natural Gas and Liquefied Natural Gas: Cars, Light Trucks, and Medium/Heavy Duty

                Natural Gas Vehicle technology is widely available and has been available for purchase in most
                regions of the world for decades. Governments, fleet managers, and private consumers are
                recognizing the environmental benefits of lower emissions from NGVs. However, lack of refueling
                infrastructure has caused NGV demand to stagnate in many countries. In regions where NGVs have
                strong market performance, adoption is largely due to a combination of inexpensive natural gas, a
                large number of existing refueling stations, and government subsidies of vehicles, fuel, and

                Our assessment of the NGV market points to strong growth in regions where the infrastructure is
                already supported, which include parts of Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East. Pike
                Research anticipates growing acceptance of NGVs as governments approve climate change treaties
                and energy security legislation. These factors will contribute to NGV sales growth of 5.5% annually
                by 2015, though some regions will see growth stunted by greater political support for other
                transportation alternatives such as electric vehicles, clean diesels, and biofuels.

                This research report provides an overview of the opportunities and challenges to NGV light-duty
                cars, trucks, and medium/heavy duty trucks. The report includes a comprehensive assessment of
                compressed and liquefied natural gas (CNG/LNG) vehicle technologies, including tanks and engine
                modifications. It also examines key drivers of market growth by fleet customers as well as private
                consumers. Detailed forecasts are provided for the global vehicle market, global NGV fleet and
                private consumer sales, NGV refueling stations, and NGV sales by vehicle segments. Key market
                players are also profiled.

                Key questions addressed:

                -   What vehicle segments are available as NGVs?
                -   What is the outlook for NGV growth within vehicle segments?
                -   What are the key storage tank and engine technologies used in NGVs?
                -   How many NGV refueling stations are there?
                -   How big are NGV markets and how large are these markets expected to grow?
                -   What are the key drivers of growth in the NGV market?
                -   Who are the key industry players in the NGV market?
