About Automotive Supercharger
A supercharger is a method of forced induction of engine, where an air compressor is used to increase the pressure or density of air supplied to an internal combustion engine. The supercharger uses belts and chains, which are connected to the engine, helping it to drive the compressor. The compressed air provides the engine with more oxygen, letting it burn more fuel; thereby increasing the power of the engine. An automotive supercharger is a system used to increase the power output of an automobile by compressing the atmospheric air. The system is mainly integrated into cars and motorcycles.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global automotive supercharger market to grow at a CAGR of 14.34% during the period 2017-2021.
