Global Market Analysis for 2-Cylinder Engines in Passenger Vehicles and Small Light Commercial Vehicles
In quest of reduced CO2 emissions, enhanced fuel economy and adherence to global emissions norms, OEMs and the entire automotive value chain are adopting varied powertrain strategies, one being the adoption of 2-cylinder engines. With the expected growth in the small and subcompact car market 2-cylinder engines provides opportunities to OEMs to further reduce fleet emissions. This research study looks at a 360 degree perspective of the global 2-cylinder market, focusing on technology (ICE/RE) and market drivers/challenges, trends, unit production forecasts, market share analysis, the competitive landscape, forecasts by OEM/region/vehicle segment, and provides scenario analyses and OEM profiles along with key conclusions towards 2020.
Globally, 2-cylinder engines (internal combustion engines and range extenders) are expected to account for about to % share of the global engine production volume by 2020 from its current share of approximately%. This is likely to account for about to million units by 2020. Europe and India are expected to continue as the only key global production hubs for 2-cylinder engines through 2020.
The 2-cylinder engine market in Europe is expected to grow to about to million units by 2020, accounting for a penetration of about to % by 2020.
India is expected to be the largest 2-cylinder engine producing market globally through 2020. It is expected to account for about to million units by 2020 and have a penetration of about to % of the overall engine production in India.
Globally, to % of all 2-cylinder engines are expected to be turbocharged by 2020, from % in 2013.
Turbocharging: In Europe, as a result of the turbo downsizing trend, gasoline turbocharging is currently used in most of the offerings (for example, out of variants of Fiat’s gasoline 2-cylinder engines are turbocharged). However, in India, 2-cylinder gasoline engine turbocharging is not widely used. Diesel 2-cylinder engines are also expected to move towards being turbocharged by 2020.
Fuel Injection: The high cost of gasoline direct injection limits its use in 2-cylinder engines. With diesel 2-cylinder engines, adoption of indirect injection (IDID) by Tata results in high volumes of 2-cylinder Diesel engines with IDID. However, adoption of Tata’s DICOR technology and similar adoption by Mahindra are expected to propel the market for direct injection diesel (DID).
