Although the industry gained momentum in recent years, the challenges associated with COVID-19 pandemic declined the automotive air intake manifold demand in 2020. The downward trend can be attributed to shortage of labor & materials, shutdown of automobile production facilities, and restriction of international trade for a short period of time. However, the market will report gradual increase in terms of production of new vehicles post 2021.

Consumer preferences for vehicle ownership will fuel industry growth

The automotive air intake manifold market from passenger car accounted for around USD 19.5 billion in 2020. The segment is gaining popularity in developing nations of Asia Pacific due to changing consumer lifestyle and urbanization trends. The rate of car ownership is anticipated to have a positive influence post COVID era, with about 46% of the consumers agreed upon owning a personal car in 2021. Increasing concerns over hygiene and safety in public transport will further accelerate sales of vehicles across the globe.

Cost effectiveness of plastics to drive their share in intake manifolds processing

Plastic and other composites segment is set to capture more than 30% of the automotive air intake manifold market revenue share by 2027 on account of cost effectiveness and lightweight properties. Growing awareness toward reducing carbon footprint from the automotive sector and increasing demand for plastic materials among OEMs are boosting product penetration.

Dual plane air intake manifold market is projected to generate demand of over 60 million units by 2027. The product is usually suitable for engines having rpm about 5,500 – 6,500 and requirement for higher torque and power. These manifolds have two different openings on plenum for supplying air fuel mixture to four cylinders, which comprise long runners to make them suitable for low to mid-range power requirement.

Injection molding will be expanding at the highest rate

The injection molding process is poised to witness growth rate of about 4% in automotive air intake manifold market through 2027. The rising penetration of plastics & composite materials in product manufacturing will stimulate segment growth. This process has several advantages including low finishing requirement, capability to produce high quality & smaller parts, and eliminating the use of manual labor.

Trending vehicle maintenance activities to foster product sales in the aftermarket segment

The aftermarket channel is forecast to reach USD 5 billion revenue by 2027 led by the growing demand for vehicle repair and replacement activities. The automotive collision repair market crossed approximately USD 950 billion in 2019, increasing the demand for repair parts in the industry. Rising sales of used vehicles and growing need for routine maintenance of engine components are majorly contributing to the industry statistics.
