Posted by Ruchi Walt on September 5th, 2019

A key factor driving the growth of the market is the greater use of advanced manufacturing, testing methods, and techniques. The advances in designing and manufacturing processes are augmenting growth in the market. Automotive testing includes checks of the entire vehicle, including its components and parts, to ensure the vehicle conforms to the minimum level of safety requirements. The fuel filler cap is an integral part of the fuel tank system, hence, undergoes various testing techniques to validate its quality as standard. The overall cost of manufacturing increase for the vendors due to such testing procedures and methods.

Global automotive fuel filler cap market: Fuel filler caps in flexible fuel vehicles

The global automotive industry is observing an increasing adoption of bio-fuel and flexible fuel vehicles. This adoption can be attributed to the growing environmental concerns and depleting sources of conventional fuel, which is pushing government agencies, councils, and automakers to look for other sources of fuel and new energy vehicles such as fuel cell vehicle, battery electric vehicle.

“Flexible fuel vehicles and bio-fuel vehicles are designed to run on two fuel sources. Mostly, gasoline or gasoline-ethanol blends are used as primary fuel. When compared to gasoline-only vehicles, these vehicles have slight modifications in their engine and fuel systems and performance are also low. However, there are flexible fuel vehicles that have high-performance features. Yellow fuel filler caps are used in most of the flexible fuel vehicles to differentiate from conventional gasoline-only vehicles. Moreover, put fuel labels on the fuel door or lid to specify the type of fuel to be used,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on human-machine interface.
