US demand for diesel engines will grow 3.8 percent annually through 2011. Best opportunities in the dominant motor vehicle market will be found in light-duty trucks, with the much smaller passenger car segment also faring very well. Off-highway diesel engines will experience slowing but still robust demand as new emissions regulations phase in.
This study analyzes the $16.6 billion US diesel engine industry. It presents historical demand data (1996, 2001 and 2006) and forecasts to 2011 and 2016 by product type (e.g., motor vehicle, non-motor vehicle, aftermarket parts); by material and by market (e.g., trucks, buses, recreational vehicles, passenger cars, construction equipment, agricultural equipment, marine equipment, electric power generation, mining machinery, lawn and garden equipment).
The study also considers market environment factors, reviews diesel engine technology, details industry structure and market share, and profiles 35 major players including Caterpillar, Cummins, Navistar International, DaimlerChrysler, Brunswick, Deere & Company, Isuzu Motors, Volvo, Robert Bosch, Delphi and Siemens.
