Global Automotive Active Grille Shutter Market 2017-2021

Global Automotive Active Grille Shutter Market 2017-2021

About Automotive Active Grille Shutter

Active grille shutters use an automatic open and shut technology to reduce the drag in vehicles, which results in higher fuel efficiency and lower emissions. The grille shutter vents are automatically closed when excess air is not required by the engine, which provides a great highway performance. In colder climatic conditions, the grille is kept shut to maintain an optimal engine temperature. The automotive active grille shutter is currently in the introduction stage and is limited to mid-segment passenger cars, luxury segment passenger cars, and pickup trucks in some regions.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global automotive active grille shutter market to grow at a CAGR of 2.03% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

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

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automotive active grille shutter market: Magna, Röchling, SRG Global, and Valeo.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Brose, Johnson Electric, Mirror Controls international, and Sonceboz.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is increasing demand for shape memory alloys. A shape memory alloy (SMA) retains its shape on heating or cooling after any deformity. In 2009, General Motors filed a patent and introduced this alloy in the market. It created a prototype engine using SMA because of which it was awarded $2.7 million by the US Department of Energy.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is higher fuel efficiency and lower emissions. Aerodynamic systems were only used in racing to reduce drag and maximize downforce to offer higher efficiency. This technology was soon applied to production vehicles, which helped in increasing fuel efficiency and lower emissions. Active grille shutter helps to shave off additional weight as it is manufactured from lightweight materials, such as low-weight reinforced thermoplastics (LWRT), which leads to a reduction of around 20% in weight and an improvement in the aerodynamic performance of about 30%.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is increasing manufacturing cost due to dynamism in regulatory environment. Dynamism in the regulatory environment has forced OEMs to modify the engine, chassis, and exterior of vehicles to comply with regulations. Advanced technologies like active aerodynamics, engine downsizing, and using lightweight materials like carbon fiber will help to increase fuel efficiency and reduce emissions but will add to the cost of the vehicle. This will reduce sales by a great deal, which will force OEMs to cut down on profit margins.
