> Global Automotive Charge Air Cooler Market Expected to reach a high CAGR of 8.9% By 2026: DataM Intelligence

Global Automotive Charge Air Cooler (CAC) Market is Segmented by Vehicle Type (Passenger Car, LCV, and M&HCV), by Product Type (Air-Cooled Charge Air Cooler and Liquid-Cooled Charge Air Cooler), by Position Type (Standalone CAC and Integrated CAC), by Fuel Type (Gasoline and Diesel), and by Region (North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa) – Share, Size, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2019-2026

Market Overview

  • The Global Automotive Charge Air Cooler Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.9% during the forecasting period (2019-2026).

  • Charge Air cooler has been used on turbocharged and supercharged engines. They are designed to cool down the heated intake air that comes from the compressor or turbocharger.

  • It is also used in various applications such as air compressors, air conditioners, refrigerators, and gas turbines, and mainly in automotive, it is used as air to air charge air cooler and air to liquid charge air cooler for internal combustion engines to improve their volumetric efficiency by increasing intake air charge density through constant pressure cooling.

  • Hot air entering engine may create a higher combustion temperature, which creates a nitrogen oxide formation and increases thermal load on the engine.

  • Charge air cooler as an interface, which converts hot air coming from a turbocharger or a supercharger to cool air entering combustion engine.

  • It also contributes towards the reduction in turbo lag and improves engine volumetric efficiency.

Market Drivers

  • The strict government regulations regarding carbon emission reductions and fuel efficiency enhancements by NHTSA’s Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards for passenger cars and light trucks. This will drive the global charge air cooler market.

  • The increase in sales of passenger cars due to increasing disposable income and the growth of automobile production will drive the global charge air cooler market.

Market Restraints

  • The price of air to liquid charge air cooler is almost double than that of air to air charger air cooler; this will downturn the air to liquid charge air cooler market globally.

  • One of the significant restraint to air to liquid charge air cooler market is heat saturation. If the engine has continued acceleration in water, it will retain some of the heat and takes a longer time to cool it off.

Market Segmentation Analysis

By product type

  • The product type is segmented by air to air charge air cooler and air to liquid charge air cooler. Air to air charge air cooler has the primary market, and it is expected to grow at the forecast period due to the high price of air to liquid charge air cooler compared to air to air charge air cooler.

  • Thus air to liquid charge air cooler will have slow growth in the forecast period.
    By Geography

  • Europe is the largest automotive charge air cooler market due to the higher penetration of diesel engine vehicles with penetration of turbochargers. Due to the strict emission norms of the European Commission that supported the charge air cooler market in Europe.

  • Asia-Pacific will experience high growth in the forecast period. China and India together account the primary market for passenger cars which will drive the global automotive charge air cooler market.

Competitive Trends

  • The companies are introducing a new series of products for charge air coolers to offer highly efficient and durable products and to be competitive in the market.

  • In May 2018, Ascend Performance Materials, the world’s largest fully integrated producer of nylon 6,6 resin, has introduced XHT, a new series of extreme heat-resistant Vydyne for automotive charge air cooling system.

  • The new series has debuted with two grades designed for demanding automotive applications and capable of withstanding prolonged exposure at 210oC and 2300C.
