"Actionable Insights to Fuel Your Growth"
The global fuel dispenser market size was USD 2.54 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 2.97 billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.7% during the forecast period.
Fuel dispensers ensure easy access to different kinds of fuels. They are installed at various locations to pump the fuel into vehicles, storage tanks, or portable containers. They ensure the pumping of an accurate amount of fuel in the tank. The increasing number of national and international transportation activities and the rising investments in building CNG stations are expected to boost the usage of fuel dispenser systems.
Growth in the automotive industry with increasing adoption of dual fuel or multi-fuel vehicles and significant developments in dispenser technology are the key factors driving the growth of this market. Various governments have planned targets to achieve carbon-free emissions and deployment of CNG stations in the coming years, which would hold significant growth opportunities for the this market. However, an increasing focus on adopting electric vehicles is restraining market growth.
Demand for LNG to Decrease Amid COVID-19 Pandemic, Market Growth to Hamper in the Upcoming Years
The outbreak of COVID-19 is affecting the businesses of various industries around the world. Almost every country is reporting new cases of infection and significant measures are being adopted to curb the transmission of coronavirus. Oil and petroleum products are mainly used in the transportation sector, power generation plants, and various other applications for industrial purposes. However, a decline in domestic and international travel, business closures, and lockdown measures in many countries have shrunk the demand for natural gas. Hence, this pandemic has hampered the consumer behavior of the oil & gas industry, thereby dramatically impacting the fuel dispenser market growth.
The demand for oil is anticipated to fall by a record of 9.3 million barrels per day (mbd) year-on-year in 2020. As per the International Energy Agency, the demand for the 2nd quarter is expected to be below 23.1 mbd, as compared to last year. Hence, the declining fuel prices along with a halt in the demand for fuel from the transportation sector as a result of coronavirus would obstruct growth. As per a report by the Energy Information Administration (EIA) & Short-Term Energy Outlook (STEO), dry gas production will drop to 88.65 billion cubic feet per day (bcfd) in 2020 and 84.02 bcfd in 2021. Thus, the spread of coronavirus poses a threat to the demand for CNG and LNG industry, which would hamper the growth of this market significantly.

Increasing Number of National and International Transportation Activities is a Current Trend
The increasing number of national and international transportation activities, propelled by the growing import and export activities, are some of the trending factors in this market. Also, many countries such as the United States, Germany, the United Kingdom, and China are outsourcing their manufacturing units to other countries, wherein lower costs are incurred. However, the increasing rate of economic growth, globalization, and the development of smart cities would accelerate the growth prospects for the global logistics market. Furthermore, the supportive trade agreements and free trade agreements (FTAs) in Asia Pacific region, as well as the Trans-Pacific agreement are also contributing to the increasing trade activities among countries.
Rising Usage of Cost-effective Alternative Fuel in the Automotive Industry is a Prominent Trend
The growth in the automotive industry is primarily attributed to the increasing usage of alternative fuel in the automotive industry for cost-effectiveness, fuel efficiency, and emission control. The CNG and LPG vehicles are growing rapidly in developing countries, owing to the lower cost of both fuels, as compared to the volatility of petroleum product prices. Besides, vehicles running in CNG and LPG are considered green alternatives to petroleum-operated vehicles. As per Bloomberg data 2020, automakers had a sale of more than 17 million vehicles in the U.S. for a fifth consecutive year in 2019. Furthermore, new vehicle sales for 2019 were originally forecast to fall between 16.7 million to 16.9 million units. Hence, the achievement of estimated sales targets is anticipated to create a growth trajectory in the automotive industry, which would further bolster the growing demand for these dispensers in the coming years.
Increasing Adoption of Dual Fuel or Multi-Fuel Vehicles to Accelerate Demand for Fuel Dispensers
Dual fuel vehicles enhance the thermal efficiencies of internal combustion engines while simultaneously reducing their emissions. It offers a solution to poor efficiency and mitigates the emissions from single fuel vehicles. Dual-fuel vehicles are designed to operate interchangeably on natural gas with a diesel pilot or on 100% diesel fuel. The depletion of petroleum products would enable people to shift to electric vehicles and other alternative technologies. Hence, the increasing adoption of dual fuel or multi-fuel vehicles would drive the growth of this market during the forecast period.
Rising Technological Advancements in Fuel Dispensers to Drive Growth
The introduction of technologically advanced fuel dispensers would help to boost the market growth. Advanced fuel dispensers aid in attending more vehicles at a time for pumping fuel. It includes a scanner, customer identification keypad, video screen, barcoding, and magnetic card terminal to offer more reliable and precise metering and refueling. In addition, key players are increasingly coming up with better and advanced products such as customizable dispensers of fuel to improve customer experience. Hence, technologically advanced dispensers are set to drive market growth during the projected time frame.
Increasing Awareness for Adopting Electric Vehicles to Restrain Growth
The increasing fuel prices and the impact of conventional fuel vehicles on the environment have further raised the awareness of adopting electric vehicles. In Europe, a regulation has been set up to cut carbon emission by 15% for lightweight commercial vehicles by 2025. Hence, stringent regulatory standards, along with the increasing awareness programs for adopting electric vehicles, would restrain the market growth.

Rising Demand for Energy to Propel the Petrol/Gasoline Segment
Based on fuel type, the market is segmented into petrol/gasoline, diesel, CNG, and others. The petrol/gasoline segment held a dominant share of the market in 2019 owing to the growing energy demand from industrial and commercial applications. It is primarily catered by petrol/gasoline. The diesel segment is projected to hold the second-largest market share due to its wide applications in mechanical engines, power generators, mobile drives, locomotives, construction equipment, automobiles, and various other industrial applications.
The CNG segment is also set to showcase high Fuel dispenser market share owing to the growing environmental concerns and high volatility in oil prices. The application of CNG would deliver high auto-ignition temperature, low operational cost, and less lubrication. At the same time, it is safer than petrol and diesel, as well as environmentally friendly. The other segment includes biodiesel, methanol, and kerosene. It is expected to grow at a steady rate due to the increasing application of biodiesel & kerosene in the transportation & aviation industries, respectively.
Lower Installation Cost is Set to Augment Growth of Submersible System Segment
Based on the dispenser system, the market is divided into submersible systems and suction systems. The submersible system segment holds a larger portion of the market share owing to lower installation, maintenance, and service costs. An underground fuel tank has a single pressure outlet connecting the fuel dispensing units in the refilling station. These factors would drive the submersible system segment in the near future.
Electronic Segment to Grow Considerably Backed by its Ability to Deliver Higher Accuracy & Stability
Based on the flow meter, the market is segmented into mechanical and electronic. Electronic flow meters have higher accuracy, high stability, and are more reliable than mechanical flow meters. This would escalate the growth of the electronic flow meter segment during the projected period. However, mechanical flow meters use moving parts to measure the flow of liquid or gas flowing through the pipes, which signifies an obsolete technology.
