Global Automotive Active Engine Mount Market 2017-2021

About Automotive Active Engine Mount

Engine mounts are rigid clamps or brackets using which the engine is mounted on the chassis of a vehicle. They are manufactured in a way to isolate the engine vibrations to the frame and vice-versa. The mounting system is used to mount the engine in place. This provides isolation from engine vibrations. Active engine mounts are tunable and change their dampening characteristics based on the engine's condition. They have the capability to remain soft when idle to absorb the vibrations produced by unevenly spaced cylinder firing.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global automotive active engine mount market to grow at a CAGR of 10.04% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Automotive Active Engine Mount Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automotive active engine mount market: BOGE Rubber & Plastics, BWI Group, Continental, Vibracoustic, and ZF Friedrichshafen.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Cooper Standard, HUTCHINSON, Sumitomo Riko Company, and YAMASHITA RUBBER.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is use of magnetorheological elastomers in engine mounts. Magnetorheological (MR) elastomers are another smart material in addition to the MR and electrorheological (ER) fluids, which has the potential to be used in active engine mounts. These materials are composites of an elastic element and have embedded magnetic particles.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is increased global automobile sales. The demand for passenger cars is rising in emerging economies like Brazil, China, and India, due to the elevated purchasing power of consumers and significant economic growth. The growth in emerging markets, in step with ongoing industrialization, and global trade activity, especially in the BRIC countries, has been vigorous. China's massive fiscal stimulus packages in recent years made it the leader in emerging markets. Over the past few years, China has maintained its position as the world's largest automotive market. The automotive market in India is dynamic in nature and is rapidly growing; so many auto OEMs are entering the market to tap its huge potential.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is cost, size, energy consumption, and reliability challenges. Active engine mounts consist of several electronic components such as vibration sensors, force generating actuators, and electronic controllers in addition to a passive mount. This increases the cost, size, energy consumption, and reliability challenges for active systems due to the use of moving parts, sensors, and an external power source. Moreover, improper tuning of the vibration sensors can lead to engine mount failures. This may affect the driver's driving experience and other vehicles on the road. At the same time, the purpose of the use of electronics for higher safety and accuracy is defeated if the technology provides unexpected results and failures.
