Market Report Description

The Global Turbocharger Market size is expected to reach $24.3 billion by 2027, rising at a market growth of 6.2% CAGR during the forecast period. A turbocharger is a device that is turbine-driven, which helps in increasing the internal combustion engine's power output by offering extra compressed air into the combustion chamber. In addition, a turbocharger is different from the conventional aspirated engine's power output as the compressor is able to force more air and respectively more fuel into the combustion chamber than atmospheric pressure itself. There is a wide range of applications of these turbochargers, generally in the car, truck, aircraft, train, and construction-equipment engines. These turbochargers are mostly utilized with Otto cycle & diesel cycle internal combustion engines.

Moreover, turbochargers are the important component that are used to boost the fuel efficiency by approximately 20% in automotive along with maintaining the output and torque by providing the highly pressurized air into the engines. Additionally, they help in supporting the rising power output by recovering the thermal energy discharges from the engine. By using these turbochargers in the automotive engine, manufacturers can facilitate acceleration by light pedal action and enable driving with fewer engine loads. Furthermore, the turbocharger is among the key components utilized in decreasing the particulate matter emission, and hence, resulting in cleaner exhaust. These features help in making cars, buses, and aircraft with less fuel consumption and hence, reduce environmental impact.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic has a huge impact on various industrial verticals including automotive, aerospace and defense, and others. The imposition of complete lockdown in various countries across the world has turned the business world upside down. The sales of automobiles have witnessed a declining demand, which has further impacted the sales of turbochargers in the market. Moreover, numerous automotive companies like Nissan, Honda, Volkswagen have faced production loss during the lockdown period.

The temporary shutdown of all the non-essential manufacturing units has negatively impacted the production of several goods. This impact has created a supply chain disruption and thus, affecting the growth of the market as a whole. Several aircraft manufacturing companies have faced a slowdown in the demand during the initial phases of the pandemic. Turbochargers are widely used in various industrial verticals, but the pandemic is estimated to slow down the overall growth of the turbocharger market over the forecast period.

Market Growth Factors:

Fuel efficiency and better engine performance would augment the market growth

Fuel efficiency is the major concern among customers because fuel prices are always fluctuating and majorly increasing, due to the restricted availability of fuel. The performance of a vehicle totally depends on the engine of the vehicle. Therefore, vehicle manufacturers are motivated to make efficient engines that can fulfill their needs and provide enhanced performance and fuel efficiency simultaneously.

Turbochargers help in decreasing the size of the engine and weight of the vehicle

Due to the increasing adoption of turbochargers across the world, several manufacturers have realized the way to fulfill the environmental emission regulations and compliances. This would result in the high production of vehicles like cars, trains, and trucks and further bolster the growth of the turbocharger market. By using turbochargers, manufacturers of various vehicles, ships, and aircraft can downsize the engine and further reduce the overall weight of the vehicle, which is a very important aspect in the production of aircraft and ships.

Market Restraining Factor:

Challenges in the installation of turbochargers

Turbochargers are gaining more popularity due to the various benefits offered by them and various innovations taken place in the industry, thereby supporting the growth of the market. However, there are some of the drawbacks faced by the manufacturers, which would ultimately hinder the market growth. Installation of any part in a vehicle plays an important role in the manufacturing process but if this part creates a problem for the manufacturers, then, it would possess a bigger challenge in front of the manufacturers.
