Global Motorcycle Supercharger Market 2017-2021
About Motorcycle Supercharger
A supercharger involves the forced induction of an engine, wherein an air compressor is used to increase the pressure or density of air that is supplied to an internal combustion engine. A supercharger uses belts and chains that 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 and increasing the power of the engine.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global motorcycle supercharger market to grow at a CAGR of 6.22% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global motorcycle supercharger market for 2017-2021. The market sizing was calculated based on the OEM fitment supercharger and its availability in the motorcycle aftermarket.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Motorcycle Supercharger Market 2017-2021

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Rotrex, ProCharger Superchargers, S Charger, and Aerocharger.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is development of ultimate roadster with superior power output. The global motorcycle industry is evolving rapidly with the increase in innovations and improvements in the industry. The growing popularity of racing and performance motorcycles has progressively made way for the integration of performance boosting systems in motorcycles. Leading motorcycles OEMs are investing in such technologies to make their products distinct in the market.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is enhanced engine power and speed leading to sporty driving characteristics. One of the biggest advantages that the supercharger enjoys over the turbocharger is the reduction in lag. The turbocharger is primarily driven by exhaust gases, wherein the turbocharger's turbine rolls up before it begins to turn the compressor's impeller. This results in lag time that is defined by the time needed for the turbine to reach to the full throttle from an intermediate rotational speed state. A supercharger is directly connected to the crankshaft of the engine, so there is no lag.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is high cost of forced induction systems inhibiting wide-scale adoption in the market. The global market for forced induction systems is gaining popularity every year. OEMs have taken such performance enhancements seriously, which is visible with the increasing adoption rate of motorcycles superchargers and turbochargers. The players operating in the market are also offering custom supercharging kits to meet the growing needs for such systems among racing enthusiasts.
