Automotive Turbocharger Market
Automotive Turbocharger Market

Global Automotive Turbocharger Market is expected to grow at a significant rate of around 8% during the forecast period. Automotive turbochargers are turbine-driven induction devices placed between the engine and exhaust. Moreover, used to amplify the engine efficiency and output of IC engines. An automotive turbocharger is deployed to direct more fuel into the combustion chamber in case the vehicle’s atmospheric pressure fails to maintain the desired output. In recent years, the demand for automotive turbochargers has risen dramatically due to the rising demand for fuel-efficient engines. Furthermore, the automotive turbocharger is used in light engine vehicles to put more power and torque. Owing to this, various major players in the market are adopting inorganic growth strategies and are focusing on the advancement of turbochargers. For instance, in June 2021, MAN energy solutions and Rolls-Royce signed a strategic partnership agreement that will see MAN’s PBST brand distribute state-of-the-art MTU turbochargers. With this partnership, the companies combine their competencies, such as Rolls-Royce’s latest high-fuel efficiency mtu turbocharger technology for high-speed gasoline and gas engine and PBST’s global sale structure for the turbocharger.

ABB, Honeywell International Inc., BorgWarner Inc., IHI Corporation, Cummins Inc., Bosch Mahle Turbo Systems GmbH & Co. KG, Eaton Corporation plc, Weifang Fuyuan Turbocharger Co Ltd, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd, Continental AG are some of the key players in the market. Several M&As along with partnerships have been undertaken by these players to facilitate customers with hi-tech and innovative products/technologies.
