The Automotive Engine Oil Pan Market: Highlights
The global automotive engine oil pan market is projected to grow at a healthy rate over the next five years to reach US$ 2,161.2 million in 2023. Increasing global automotive production, introduction of stringent regulations regarding fuel efficiency and carbon emissions, and continuous replacement of traditional oil pans with lightweight composite oil pans are the major growth drivers of the global automotive engine oil pan market.

The global automotive engine oil pan market is segmented based on the vehicle type as Passenger Car, LCV (Light Commercial Vehicle) and M&HCV (Medium- and Heavy-Duty Commercial Vehicle). The passenger car is expected to remain the growth engine of the automotive engine oil pan market during the forecast period of 2018 to 2023. Increasing production of hatchbacks and SUVs especially in emerging economies, such as China and India, is the key factor, propelling the demand for engine oil pans in the segment.

Based on the product type, the global automotive engine oil pan market is segmented as Structural Engine Oil Pan and Non-Structural Engine Oil Pan.
