Technological Advancements in Fuel Retail Sector to Accelerate Digital Innovations in Fuel Dispenser Market

The fuel retail industry has remained untouched for several decades. However, with advancements in technology and growing need to provide seamless customer experience, the fuel retail space has witnessed considerable growth in the number of physical as well as digital interactions across the fuel stations worldwide. Although the process of paying and filling up fuel across various nations has more or less remained the same, due to evolving demands of modern-day consumers, operations at fuel stations are expected to get faster and much more personalized than before. At present, consumers seek a perfect blend of both– the brick and mortar experience and efficient digital experience.

Due to evolving consumer demands, fuel retailers in the current industry landscape are increasingly focusing on increasing sales and improving customer retention by providing a seamless digital and physical experience by gradually shifting from conventional models. Digital innovations in the fuel retail sphere will play a key role in driving the growth of the fuel dispenser market during the forecast period. In addition, as automated fuel dispensers continue to gain popularity across the world, fuel dispenser manufacturers are expected to primarily focus on rolling out innovative solutions in line with industrial trends.

At the back of these factors, along with the exponential rise in the consumption of conventional as well as alternative fuels, the fuel dispenser market is expected to expand during the forecast period. The growing inclination toward deploying cloud platforms in fuel stations could emerge as an important factor that could set the ball rolling for the global fuel dispenser market during the assessment period.

Market Players Likely to Focus on Designing Remotely Operated Fuel Dispensers

Fuel dispenser manufacturers are required to launch products that comply with set standards pertaining to storing, dispensing, and handling of flammable fuels. In the current scenario, fuel dispensers with a suction and submersible system are extensively used around the world. Fuel dispensers are largely used to dispense various fuels, including diesel, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), diesel, and compressed hydrogen. Apart from fuel stations, fuel dispensers are also used across airports, ranches, and farms. Fuel dispenser manufacturers are expected to concentrate on various details such as rate of fuel flow, size of inlets, weight of various components, and the optimum working pressure. In addition, as per the current trends in the fuel dispenser market, the demand for remotely operated systems is increasing, owing to higher levels of safety.

Disparity between Supply and Demand Evident amid COVID-19 Crisis

As the novel coronavirus pandemic pushes several nations toward a lockdown, the global demand for various fuels has witnessed considerable decline. The lockdown in China in the first quarter of 2020 is expected to have a strong impact on the expansion of the fuel dispenser market, as China is one of the major importers of oil & gas. In addition, stringent restrictions on transportation and trade have put forward several barriers in the supply chain due to which, the demand for fuel dispensers has experienced a considerable slump in the first half of 2020. Although, several countries have announced a lockdown as a measure to contain the novel coronavirus, the production of oil and other fuel alternatives has remained steady due to which, the disparity between the supply and demand has widened considerably.

Bottlenecks in the supply chain are likely to restrict market growth in 2020. However, as industries in China have opened up again, the existing bridge between the supply and demand of fuel resources is likely to narrow down and thereby, generate considerable demand for fuel dispensers in the upcoming years.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

The global fuel dispensers market is expected to grow at a steady CAGR of 4% during the forecast period. The market growth can be primarily attributed to a host of factors, including ongoing diversification of energy resources around the world, soaring adoption of various fuels across various end-use industries, and entry of numerous digital innovations in the market. Despite experiencing a sluggish growth during the COVID-19 pandemic, the market is likely to recover in the last quarter of 2020 and beyond due to the growing demand to improve user convenience and efficiency across fuel stations around the world.  

Fuel Dispenser Market: Overview

  • Fuel dispenser usually functions by using unequal pressure to create suction on different systems. In suction type, the fuel dispenser consists of motor and suction system. Thus, the fuel dispenser works independently. In submersible type, the fuel dispenser does not consist of motor and suction system. Therefore, it cannot work independently.
  • Flow meter is used in a fuel dispenser to measure the movement of the liquid through a pipe. Flow meters are coupled into the pipe and derive the flow rate from the rotation of a turbine or paddle wheel that is moved by the liquid. There are primarily two types of flow meters: mechanical and electronic. Fuel dispensers are also capable of producing gas on-demand around the clock. This eliminates the risk of running out of gas at an inopportune moment.
  • Petrol/gasoline and diesel are the major types of fuel pumped by fuel dispensers across the world. Petrol/gasoline is a primary fuel that is used across the globe in vehicles.

Increase in Urbanization and Infrastructure Development to Drive Fuel Dispenser Market

  • Increase in urbanization, rise in income of the people, and infrastructure developments in developing countries have led to improvements in the standard of living of consumers. Increasing number of people are buying vehicles. Therefore, demand for automotive is rising at a rapid pace. This rise in demand for vehicles leads to an increase in demand for fuels such as petrol, diesel, and CNG. This is boosting the fuel dispenser market.
