Global Automotive Engine Valves Market 2017-2021

About Automotive Engine Valves

Engine valves regulate the inlet and outlet operation of gases in the combustion chamber of an automotive engine. The engine valves are highly regulated components and are responsible for an efficient combustion. The automotive internal combustion (IC) engine is an evolving component. Automotive OEMs across the world are largely focusing on increasing IC engine's efficiency to reduce the environmental pollution caused due to vehicular emissions. As per technology experts, every moving component in an IC engine needs to be optimized in terms of weight, material quality, and life to improve an engine's efficiency.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global automotive engine valves market to grow at a CAGR of 2.58% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

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

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automotive engine valves market: Bosch, Continental, Eaton Corporation, Federal-Mogul, MAHLE, and SINUS

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: SSV, Nextech Engineering, Japan Engine Valve, G&S Valves, IVAM, and Rane Engine Valve.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Advance camless technology. The camshaft is one of the components of the valve train system and is responsible for opening and closing movement. The camshaft is a rotating component and requires many other supporting assemblies for efficient connection with the valves and crank feed. In the camless engine, the valve train unit is compressed into small cylindrical units in a compact packaging which contains actuators electronically controlled as per valve timing.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Increasing penetration of advance steel alloys for engine valves. The cost optimization because of advancement of manufacturing technology is a driver for the sale of advanced material engine valves. Performance optimizations of engine valves and increasing demand for high-performance vehicles are an indication that advanced steel alloys and nickel alloys will have increasing penetration in the high-performance engine application. However, their prices may not lower to that of the standard steel engine valves.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Engine downsizing resulting in lower number of valves per engine. Engine downsizing is a worldwide phenomenon, which has started affecting the automotive industry in EMEA and the Americas. Volvo, one of the majors in automotive products, has announced the phase out of diesel engine R&D to focus on petrol and electric powertrain. The company is in plans to stop the production of its diesel engine variants. Porsche too has brought out 4-cylinder engine version of its car, Boxter, to comply with the emission norms of various regions. This was a significant step for the manufacturer, where a V6 engine was replaced by 4-cylinder inline engine configuration. Porsche reduced the number of valves in its engine from 24 to 16.
