Global Automotive Tappets Market 2015-2019
About automotive tappets
Tappets, also termed as cam follower or valve lifter, run on the camshaft that is made to move vertically by the action of the rotating cam. These are small member interposed between each camshaft lobe for valve lifting mechanism. The side valves lift upwards where the overhead valves are depressed to lift or open the side valves or vice versa. As the camshaft rotates, each lobe produces both a vertical and a side thrust. In an overhead valve engine, the tappet is fitted in the engine block.
Technavio’s analysts forecast global automotive tappets market to grow at a CAGR of 3.87% over the period 2014-2019.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Sourcing products from low-cost countries has significantly increased during the past decade. Low-cost countries in APAC, like China and India, have a strong impact on the automotive tappet and other automotive ancillary products markets. Global players in the automotive tappets market are becoming more and more cost competitive as they capitalize on the advantages of these countries.”
According to the report, the growing demand for roller tappets would help drive the automotive tappets market significantly during the forecast period. Roller tappets help produce greater valve acceleration than flat tappets. They also enable higher spring loads, resulting in more aggressive valve motion and more power than the flat-tappets. Installing a roller tappet is also quite easier than a flat tappet.
Further, the report states that the operational issues associated with tappets should reduce the use of tappets during the forecast period.
