“Decrease in emissions limits, demand for electric vehicles and advancement in comfort features is the significant factor for the growth of the thermal system market for automotive globally”
The thermal system market for automotive is projected to reach USD 64.6 billion by 2027 from an estimated USD 49.3 billion in 2019 at a CAGR of 3.4% during the forecast period. All major players such as Denso, Hanon, Valeo, MAHLE and BorgWarner are working on advanced thermal system solution by showcasing their developments and business strategies in thermal system market.
There are various factors that are propelling the thermal system market for automotive. The major factor being the emission norms across all regions globally. For instance , the introduction of Euro VI, China VI, PROCONVE P8 has driven the electric vehicle market by pushing automakers to come up with advanced electrified powertrain technologies. Also, demand for comfort features such as heated/ventilated seats and heated steering along with rear air conditioning is boosting the market for thermal system. However, high cost of advanced thermal systems along with lack of standardization is expected to hinder market growth.
Passenger car segment is expected to remain the largest market in vehicle type ”
The high production of passenger cars globally is making the segment largest market for thermal system. Factors such as increased population and rising purchasing power have increased the demand for passenger cars globally. Additionally, increase in penetration of advanced comfort features, stringent government regulations for vehicle emission and advancement in thermal system solutions is expected propel the market of passenger cars in future.
Mild Hybrid is expected to grow with highest CAGR in the electric & hybrid vehicle type market
Mild Hybrid vehicle is estimated to be the fastest growing market for the period 2019-2027. The slowdown of diesel-powered vehicles and restrictions on CO2 targets has driven the mild hybrid market. According to Emission Analytics, the mass adoption of mild hybrids over low-take up-volumes of BEVs is an effective solution to cut down on emissions. Also, developments and drop in Lithium-ion battery prices boosting the demand for battery and motor thermal system which has ultimately increased the mild hybrid vehicle market. Easy integration of mild hybrid powertrain into an existing ICE vehicle architecture is also driving the mild hybrid vehicle market.
“The North America market is expected to register the fastest growth during the forecast period”
The North America thermal system market is estimated to be the fastest-growing market. In North America, the US is estimated to be experiencing the highest CAGR owing to the rise in implementation of latest technologies in automotive, surge in number of research & development activities and existence of well-established industrial infrastructure in the region. Due to increasing vehicle production in Mexico, it has also become the one of the most promising economies in North America. For instance, Hanon Systems is expanding its operation in Central Mexico to support its growing business with automakers in the region. The expanded business will increase its ability to support automakers by adding powertrain cooling and fluid transport products to its production.
