It has been almost 150 years since inventor Nikolaus Otto patented the internal combustion engine. Over the years, the popularity of the IC engine skyrocketed with their use mainly in automobiles. For a certain period, they were also used to power aeroplanes and locomotives. Even now, the automotive industry heavily depends on the IC engine to power its cars and bikes. The farm sector too depends on the IC engine very heavily. There have been attempts to provide alternative means to power our vehicles, but they are still decades away from being acceptable to the masses. Until then the internal combustion engine is going to dominate the automotive sector in a big way.
