With the changing landscape of the transport sector, there are also alternative powertrain systems on offer that can run independently of or in conjunction with the internal combustion engine. This shift has actually helped the industry gain traction with the Internal Combustion Engine market projected to grow at 4.67% CAGR during the forecast period 2019-2025. It continues to meet both requirements and challenges through continual technology advancement and innovation from the latest research.
With this in mind, the 2019 conference will not only cover the particular issues for the internal combustion engine market but also reflect the impact of alternative powertrains on the propulsion industry. Don’t miss this key opportunity to present your research, ideas and messages to industry leaders, OEMs, NGOs, government figures and decision-makers.
