World diesel engine demand will grow 5.5 percent annually through 2005. Gains will be driven by the lower price of diesel fuel relative to gasoline in Western Europe, and the greater fuel efficiency of diesel engines versus gasoline engines in general. The stationary segment (e.g., industrial, power generation) will grow the fastest worldwide.
This study analyzes the US$73 billion world diesel engine industry. It presents historical data for 1990, 1995 and 2000 and forecasts to 2005 and 2010 by application (e.g., motor vehicles, off-highway, stationary); by geographic region (North America, Latin America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Africa/Mideast, Asia/Pacific); and for 26 individual countries.
The study also examines the world market environment, reviews emission control technologies, details industry composition and market share, and profiles 28 key companies including Isuzu, Peugeot, Renault, Volkswagen, Caterpillar, Cummins, DaimlerChrysler, Ford, General Motors, Navistar International, Robert Bosch, Siemens, and Volvo.
