Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Automotive Wind Tunnel Testing Equipment Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automotive wind tunnel testing equipment market: HORIBA MIRA, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, MAHLE GmbH, and FKFS.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Glenn L. Martin, Windshear, Auto Research Center, RUAG, DNW, Aiolos, A2 Wind Tunnel, Fondmetal Technologies, Lexus, LTG, and Toyota Motorsport.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is mobile aero-acoustic wind tunnel. The cost of building an automotive wind tunnel is very high and the testing can be done only in the few places where the test facilities are present. There are many manufacturing facilities available but it is not possible to build a wind tunnel testing facility near every place. The cost involved in transporting the vehicles to the test facility is high, which increases the overall cost of research.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is cost pressure faced by OEMs. Auto OEMs face immense cost pressure because of the rapid changes in government regulations and increasing demand from consumers. The environmental concerns and safety standards are pressurizing the OEMs to adhere to the regulations without transferring the additional cost to the consumers. Controlling the emissions would increase the cost of the vehicle. For instance, the US CAFE standards, which became effective from 2016 have increased the manufacturing cost of a vehicle by $1,000.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is high cost of setting up wind tunnel test facility. Automotive wind tunnel testing equipment are considered capital-intensive. In addition to this, setting up a testing facility is all the more expensive. The capital intensity of the test equipment makes it unaffordable for many manufacturing units and testing centers, which are likely to challenge the growth of the market. The need for upgraded wind tunnel testing facility and the huge cost involved in setting up of the aerodynamic test facility hinders the growth of the market. Therefore, the expensive nature of the testing machine restrains the potential growth of the market.
