US diesel engine product demand will rise 6.2 percent annually through 2013. Motor vehicle uses will outpace the non-motor vehicle segment as consumers choose diesel’s better fuel economy and towing/hauling power. New emission control regulations will also drive gains via the upgrading or replacement of older, noncompliant engines.
This study analyzes the $14.5 billion US diesel engine and parts industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1998, 2003 and 2008, and forecasts for 2013 and 2018 by product (e.g., motor vehicle engines, non-motor vehicle engines, aftermarket parts, diesel engine components and materials) and market (e.g., trucks, buses, RVs, construction equipment, agricultural equipment, mining machinery, electric power generation).
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 34 industry players, including Caterpillar, Cummins and Navistar International.
