July 13th ,2021/IndustryNewsGlobal/ — The unexpected shifts in the global markets because of the sudden outbreak of the COVID-19 virus have brought many major and minor tremors to industries of all sizes including the Automotive Air Intake Manifold Market.
The report studies the market covering a period of 12 years of trend and forecast. The report provides detailed insights into the market dynamics to enable informed business decision making and growth strategy formulation based on the opportunities present in the market.
The Automotive air intake manifold market is projected to grow at a healthy rate over the next five years to reach US$ 3,387.2 million in 2023.
The automotive air intake manifold market is segmented based on the vehicle type as Passenger Car, Light Commercial Vehicle, and Medium- & Heavy-Duty Commercial Vehicle. Passenger car is expected to remain the growth engine of the market during the forecast period. High number of car production and higher demand for lightweight products would continue to drive the segment over the next five years. It is estimated that approximately 481.9 million passenger cars are likely to be produced globally during 2018-2023. This represents a myriad of opportunities for the market players in the coming 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. 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. The auto 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) are most widely preferred in the air intake manifold market as they offer 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 air intake manifold is projected to further capture the market share of traditional metal-based air intake manifold during the forecast period.
Based on the process type, injection molding is likely to remain the most dominant process in the market during the forecast period. The auto industry looks for those manufacturing processes that can fabricate a final part in merely one to two minutes. Injection molding is perfectly suited to the automotive industry and is ideal for the mass-production of small- to medium-sized complex parts. Composites, the largest material type for air intake manifold, heavily rely on the injection molding process.
Based on regions, Asia-Pacific is expected to remain the largest air intake manifold market during the forecast period. The region is also expected to experience the highest growth during 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. However, the region is expected to experience a moderate growth due to low growth in the light vehicle production.
