Automotive Piston Market Forecast to 2028 - COVID-19 Impact and Global Analysis By Material Type (Steel and Aluminum); Coating Type (Thermal Barrier Piston Coating, Dry Film Piston Coating, and Oil Shedding Piston Coating); Vehicle Type (Two Wheelers, Passenger Vehicles, and Commercial Vehicles); and Piston Type (Flat-top Piston, Dish Piston, and Dome Piston)
The automotive piston market was valued at US$ 3879.92 million in 2021 and it is projected to reach US$ 5,815.15 million by 2028; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.0% from 2021 to 2028.
Increasing production of ICE vehicles and growing usage of lightweight pistons for improved engine performance are attributing to the growth of the automotive piston market. Increasing technological advancements, such as hydrogen-fueled piston engines, are bolstering the sales of automotive pistons due to increasing demand for electric vehicles. The global automotive piston market is segmented into five major regions-North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Africa, and South America. The presence of many manufacturing facilities and a large consumer base in countries, such as China, India, and Japan, are major factors fueling the growth of the automotive piston market in APAC. In APAC, China is the largest passenger car manufacturer, and it produced ~20 million passenger cars in 2020. India accounts for the largest number of two-wheeler registrations. Japan accounts for ~10.5% of all vehicles manufactured globally. Europe holds the second-largest share of the automotive piston market as funding provided by the European Commission is enabling the region to strengthen its competitiveness and maintain global technological leadership. There are various market players such as MAHLE GmbH; Tenneco Inc.; Aisin Seiki Co., Ltd.; Hitachi Astemo Americas, Inc; and Rheinmetall Automotive who are engaged in making transportation efficient, environmentally friendly, and comfortable. Also, the increasing government initiatives to promote the use of clean energy are enabling automotive engine manufacturers to adopt lightweight hybrid composite materials that provide improved properties over the commercially available aluminum-based components, which is driving the demand for automotive pistons.
The sudden COVID-19 outbreak pandemic has hampered the production activities in the global automotive sector. Inadequate raw material supply has disrupted economies and weakened production, leading to a collapse in demand. As the automotive market is witnessing a high demand after the slowing down of the COVID-19 outbreak, major automakers and OEMs are actively focusing on innovations and prototypes of engines to meet consumer preferences for high-performance and fuel-efficient automobiles. On the other hand, due to business lockdowns, travel bans, and supply chain disruptions are negatively impacting the market growth.
