The Global Automotive Air Intake Manifold Market: Highlights
The global automotive air intake manifold market offers healthy growth opportunity and is likely to grow at 3.7% CAGR over the next five years to reach US$ 3,250 million in 2022. Organic growth in the automobile production owing to increasing disposable income and growing urbanization and increasing demand for lightweight air intake manifold to reduce the overall vehicle weight for achieving stringent government regulations, such as CAFÉ Standards are major growth drivers of the global automotive air intake manifold market.
Global automotive air intake manifold market is segmented based on vehicle type as passenger cars, light commercial vehicles, and medium & heavy duty commercial vehicles. Passenger car is expected to remain the growth engine of the global automotive air intake manifold market during the forecast period. The high number of car production and higher demand for lightweight products would continue to drive the segment over the next five years.
Air intake manifolds were conventionally made from metals, such as cast iron and aluminum but this trend has been changing with the change in the market dynamics. Government stringent regulations are putting pressure on the automakers to either curb the overall vehicle weight or downsize the engines to increase fuel efficiency or reduce emissions. Air intake manifold could not escape itself from such regulations and experienced a significant change in the selection of materials over the period. Industry is rapidly moving towards lightweight materials, such as composites and magnesium to make final component light in weight without sacrificing overall manifold performance.
Short fiber thermoplastics (SFT) based composites are most widely preferred in the global automotive air intake manifold market as it offers many benefits over competing materials, such as low part cycle time, ability to manufacture complex products, recyclability, good surface finish, excellent strength to weight ratio, lightweight, and excellent temperature resistance. Composite based air intake manifold is projected to further capture market share of traditional metals based air intake manifold during the forecast period.
Variable intake manifold is expected to experience faster growth over the next five years as it offers several benefits over standard manifolds, such as high engine output by switching intake ports according to driving conditions and improve fuel economy.
Injection molding is likely to remain the most dominant process in the global automotive air intake manifold market during the forecast period. Auto industry looks for those manufacturing process that can fabricate a final part in merely one to two minutes. Injection molding process is perfectly suited to the automotive industry and is ideal for the mass production small to medium-sized complex parts. Composites, the largest material type for air intake manifold heavily rely on the injection molding process.
Asia-Pacific is expected to remain the largest air intake manifold market during the forecast period. The region is also expected to experience the fastest growth in the same period. Increasing automobile production mainly in China and India is likely to drive the demand for air intake manifold in the region. Europe is expected to remain the second largest automotive air intake manifold market over the next five years but the region is expected to experience a moderate growth due to low growth in the light vehicle production.
The supply chain of this market comprises raw materials suppliers, compounders, air intake manufacturers, distributors, automotive OEMs, and dealers. The key automotive air intake manifold manufacturers are Mann+Hummel Group, MAHLE GmbH, Magneti Marelli S.p.A., Aisin Seiki Co., Ltd, Röchling Automotive, and Honda Foundry Co., Ltd. Lightweight air intake manifold and strategic alliances are the key strategies adopted by the key players to gain a competitive edge in the market.
