Report Highlights

Audi, using a new combustion method basing on Miller cycle, developed a TFSI 4-cylinder engine that the company claims to be the most efficient 2-litre gasoline engine in its class. This engine from the company allows surging into the gaps at low speeds in intense traffic situations. Toyota, introduced its FPEF, the Free Piston Engine Linear Generator that operates like a two-stroke engine with direct gasoline injection and electrically operated valves. This prototype from Toyota has piston that isn't attached to a crankshaft, generates a burst of three-phase AC electricity and is claimed to boast a thermal-efficiency rating of 42% in continuous use. Extensive innovations and prototypes from major automakers & OEMs, coupled with consumer preference for high performance and fuel-efficient automobiles are expected to drive the global market for automotive engines at a CAGR of 6.45% till 2020.

Automotive emissions, which accounted to over 25% of the overall greenhouse emissions, rang alarms globally. This subsequently resulted in regulations, requiring the automakers to cut down emissions of their produce. Further, EPA and CAFE standards became more stringent, levying heavy fines on automakers that don't reach the standard mpg levels. These factors as a whole, forced the automakers to develop better automobiles with lesser emissions and better fuel efficiency. This acted as a major propellant for the global automotive engine market. High costs, long durations for R&D of new concepts and economic crisis, acted as major barriers for the market growth. However, on the bright side, growing automotive sector in developing countries, increasing vehicle owing households and advancements in tensile alloys are few of the major factors, opening up new prospects for the automotive engine market.

Engine downsizing trends are on the rise with automakers developing smaller engines with better fuel injection systems. L4 and V6 engines dominated the automotive engine market by placement type in 2015. Passenger cars vehicle type is expected to continue its dominance as the major vehicle type in the market. Gasoline and diesel engines accounted to over 60% of the overall market, by fuel type. However, due fluctuating oil prices, and growing environmental concern among the public & governments, the market for other engines such as hybrid and natural gas would witness a higher growth rate till 2020.

The industry in North America and Asia pacific regions dominated the global automotive engine market in terms of revenue, with a share of over 40% in 2015. Asia pacific region, in the light of India, Japan and China growing as global automotive manufacture hubs, is expected to continue as a major market for automotive engines during the forecasted period. Germany, with its innovative and technologically advanced automotive industry, is expected to witness higher CAGR for the former market, within European countries. Mexico is on the verge of becoming a major market for automotive engines, while Russia and Australia are expected to witness slower growth rates in the sector, over the coming 5 years.

The global automotive engine market has been segmented by position type (in-line, V-type, others), by fuel type (gasoline, diesel, others) by vehicle type (passenger cars, LCV, HCV) and by geography (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, Africa & Middle-East). Major OEMs and automakers are now trying to come up with lighter engines by employing aluminium and magnesium die cast components. Further, extensive R&D spending is in place for developing engines of high fuel efficiency and lower emissions. Cummins Inc., For Motor Company, Volkswagen, Volvo and Fiat S.P.A are some of the key players in the market.
