The consumers are increasingly demanding high-power output with minimal loss in fuel economy, resulting in installation of turbochargers. Moreover, rising demand for light weight vehicles will further strengthen the product penetration till 2024.

HCVs are expected to grow significantly, exhibiting over 7% CAGR from 2017 to 2024. Rising domestic and international trading activities across the globe will primarily drive the segment growth. High demand for increasing the durability of these vehicles will further force the OEMs to install these turbochargers in them. Moreover, these vehicles are responsible for high CO2 emissions, thereby supporting the automotive turbo charger market growth from HCVs.

Automotive Turbocharger Market, By Technology

Automotive turbocharger market from VGT turbochargers is expected to grow significantly, witnessing over 8% CAGR over the next eight years. High requirement for precise controlling of particulate and NOx emissions will drive the demand for these turbochargers. Moreover, they help to reduce the lag time and increase the efficiency of the engines. Their technical benefits and cost-effectiveness will further support the industry growth till 2024.

Twin turbo will account for approximately USD 7 billion over the forecast timeline owing to provision of benefits such as superior power and acceleration. This technology makes use of two turbochargers, either in sequential or parallel layout. Moreover, it eliminates the need for piping, that is required for the plumbing of exhaust and intake systems. These factors will further strengthen the market from twin turbo.

Automotive Turbocharger Market, By Fuel

Automotive turbocharger market from diesel will account for highest volume share of more than 60% by the end of 2024. Substantial production of diesel vehicles across the globe will primarily contribute to the revenue generation. Diesel vehicles possess low efficiency, and thereby experience high requirement of turbochargers. Strong prevalence of the fuel in the automobile industry will further support the industry dominance.

Gasoline is likely to grow substantially, exhibiting over 8% CAGR from 2017 to 2024. Shifting preference towards gasoline turbochargers owing to the regular advancements and stringent emission regulations will majorly drive the industry growth.
