Global Automotive Valvetrain System Market 2017-2021

About Automotive Valvetrain System

An automotive valvetrain system is a mechanical system that enables control over valves in an engine. Valves are used for regulating fuel and air flow in cylinders and facilitate combustion. Components of valvetrain system are: Camshafts, Lifters, Pushrods, Rocker arms, and Valves. Automotive manufacturers are increasingly downsizing engines to ensure compliance with fuel efficiency standards and emission regulations. This has led to the elimination of various components such as tappets, valves, and pushrods in the valvetrain.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global automotive valvetrain system market to grow at a CAGR of 3.01% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Automotive Valvetrain System Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automotive valvetrain system market: COMP Cams, Crower, Delphi, Lunati, and MAHLE.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Camshaft, Valves, Rocker arms, and Pushrods.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is alternate materials and technology used for making automotive valvetrain components. An automotive valvetrain system is made of different types of components that facilitate effective functioning of the system. The increasing enforcement of government norms and regulations on vehicular emissions and fuel economy is compelling OEMs to manufacture lightweight vehicles with low fuel consumption and enhanced durability and performance.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is increasing preference for high-performance vehicles drives the demand for valvetrain systems. High-performance vehicles generate exceptional power and torque and are thus used for touring. These vehicles require more cylinders to produce the required power and torque. The increase in the number of cylinders has led to the use of additional components in valvetrain system (to support the functioning of the cylinders). Thus, the growing preference for high-performance vehicles is expected to drive the demand for automotive valvetrain systems. SUVs and crossovers account for a majority of the high-performance vehicles. Compared with other types of vehicles, they have more interior space.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is introduction of camless engines. Free-valve piston engines or camless engines are types of ICEs that do not comprise camshafts. The poppet valves in these engines are operated by pneumatic, hydraulic, or electromagnetic actuators to close and open valves in the automotive valvetrain system. The cost of a camshaft is almost half the cost of an entire valvetrain system used in a vehicle. Thus, the elimination of the camshaft in a valvetrain system reduces the demand for valvetrain systems. Vehicle manufacturers face pressure from governing bodies to increase the fuel efficiency of vehicles. The power-to-weight ratio of a vehicle plays a major role in determining the fuel efficiency of the vehicle.
