Global Aluminum Crankcase Market 2017-2021

About Aluminum Crankcase

The crankcase is a housing for the crankshaft in an internal combustion engine. The crankshaft is located below the cylinders placed in the engine, multi-cylinders integrated with engine head or engine blocks. The crankcase and other engine structural components such as cylinders, cylinder heads, and cylinder blocks are typically made of cast iron or cast aluminum.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global aluminum crankcase market to grow at a CAGR of 7.07% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Aluminum Crankcase Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global aluminum crankcase market: Thyssenkrupp, Sandvik, Nemak, and Linamar.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Bluewater Thermal Solutions, Rockman, and Ryobi Die Casting.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is growing application of aluminum in diesel engine blocks. With the rise in the number of diesel engines, the need for lightweight design in diesel engines increased. Cast iron has been used in engine blocks for a long time as they are highly durable and stable. Cast iron is still used in diesel engines like K9K Engine 1.5 dci produced by Renault-Nissan through a joint development in 2001. The engine has a cast iron block and is used in Renault MEGANE, Renault Duster, and Nissan Qashqai.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is fuel economy benefits. In recent times, government regulations are forcing OEMs to reduce the CO₂ emissions in cars. In Europe, the average emissions in car models sold needs to drop from 140 g CO₂ per kilometer to 95 g in 2020. There are high penalties associated with the regulations with the penalty per car costing OEMs up to $13,042 per car sales by failing to meet the average fuel fleet.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is low penetration of aluminum crankcase in HCV powertrains. Aluminum crankcase has a low penetration in HCVs as compacted graphite engine blocks are used in these vehicles, which offer more hardness and fatigue strength, high tensile strength, and high ductility compared with aluminum or cast iron. The graphite engine blocks are 500% more fatigue resistant than aluminum and are 200% more fatigue resistant than cast iron. HCVs predominantly use cast iron crankcase as the vehicles need to withstand tremendous pressure, power, and thermal levels.
