Global Automotive Variable Intake Air Control Valve Market 2017-2021

Global Automotive Variable Intake Air Control Valve Market 2017-2021

About Automotive Variable Intake Air Control Valve

Automotive variable intake air control (AVIAC) valve is an electrically controlled device, commonly used in fuel injected vehicles. In most cases, the air control valve is located on the throttle bore and is designed to vary the engine air intake at the idle driving condition. The power-train control module (PCM) receives feedback data from various sensors to send output signals designed to adjust the air passage that adjusts the engine idle speed. At engine speeds above idle, the valve is not used and does not affect the engine.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global automotive variable intake air control valve market to grow at a CAGR of 5.90% during the period 2017-2021.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Automotive Variable Intake Air Control Valve Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automotive variable intake air control valve market: Bosch, Delphi, Nidec Corporation, and VOSS Automotive.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Continental, Eaton, Metaldyne, Hitachi Automotive Systems, and Rotex Engineering.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is development of FreeValve engines. FreeValve engine is an innovative model of engine that features an operating system without a camshaft. This engine does not have moving parts like a piston or other mechanical connections. All the functions of the engine are controlled by the pneumatic, hydraulic, or electromagnetic actuators that control the valves. These engines do not use AVIAC valves, which is causing a slowdown in the growth of the global AVIAC valve market.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is strict regulations on automotive emissions. Government regulations play a vital role in bringing various technological changes into the automotive industry. Aspects such as the safety of the automobile, regulation of the emission control systems, and handling efficiency are crucial segments that governed by regulations and standards. The declining air quality in various regions is driving the governing bodies of those regions to instate stricter emission regulations for vehicles, besides upgrading the existing emission regulations to more limited standards for ensuring less pollution.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is engine downsizing to reduce the number of automotive variable intake air control valves within a vehicle. The concept of engine size being proportional to the output power and performance of the engine is obsolete. Advances in technology along with tougher emission regulations have forced the automakers to start focusing on smaller engines with the same or higher efficiency and performance. An increased tax levied on the automotive industry by the government, due to higher CO2 emissions, has driven vehicle manufacturers to prefer downsized engines.
