The market is projected to grow at 4.67% CAGR during the forecast period 2018-2025.
The market, over the years, has experienced friction due to high dependence on fossil fuels which are limited reserves, and expectation for improving the internal combustion engine’s emission levels. However, the recent array of advanced technologies, including low temperature combustion engines and hybrid systems, have helped the industry gain traction, a trend expected to elevate industry growth over the forecast period.

Various stringent laws for exhaust emissions and fuel economy worldwide is compelling the industry players to continuously work and invest towards R&D in order to innovate and develop high-speed and more efficient engines that can optimally satisfy the customers' needs and also minimize the environmental hazards. However, the governing bodies across the globe are hinting at replacing IC engines with more efficient and eco-friendly counterparts in the automotive sector. For instance, Norway, France, the U.K., India, the Netherlands are planning to ban IC engines sales by 2025. Germany and China are among the other countries who are also planning to enforce a ban on internal combustion engines but have not specified any time for the same.
If electric vehicles manufacturers can develop the electric vehicle in the above mentioned timeframe set by various countries, to ban IC engines, it may turn into reality. In an optimistic scenario, the internal combustion engine going out of market anytime soon is highly unlikely due to various factors including adoption among the consumers, lack of sophisticated charging infrastructure across the globe and the price quotient of these vehicles being higher than the present scenario.

KEMP, Texas, Jan. 03, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Leader in industrial lighting, Larson Electronics LLC, has just released a 10-foot weatherproof LED rope light equipped with an encapsulated inline transformer for 120-277V input and a wireless remote. This rope light is ideal for marine applications such as boat docks, ship yards and as a perimeter lighting system.
The WAL-RSL-10-X12I-D-WR-1227 is an LED rope light that produces 8 watts of smooth, cool white illumination, with a 5600K color temperature rating. This rope light is compatible with 120-277V input voltages, and includes an encapsulated inline transformer stepping the input down to 12V DC. The LED rope is 10 feet long and constructed of ½ inch of flexible PVC tubing to house the LEDs and reinforced with weatherproof protection for safe use in marine environments. The solid state of the LEDs gives this rope light a lifespan of more than 100,000 hours. The rope can be cut for length customization.
This rope light is dimmable and includes a remote for wireless control of light output. The remote control has a 50-foot range, so operators can dim or brighten the rope light from a distance without having to interrupt work.
