Automotive Thermal Management System Market Trends


Growing electrical and electronic components in vehicles to boost market growth


The ever-increasing number of electrical and electronic components inside vehicles also drives the need for better thermal management systems due to heat dissipation. Over the long term, as the automotive industry moves to electric mobility, thermal management systems for IC engines are expected to go completely obsolete. However, the increasing number of heavy-duty electrical components, such as heavy-duty batteries and high-current motors, is expected to continue keeping the high demand in these aspects. With increasing automation and powertrain electrification, the demand for electrical and electronic components exponentially increased, in both passenger cars and commercial vehicles, in the automotive industry.


Major original equipment manufacturers are focusing on the development of thermal management systems to offer the best possible travel range for their electric fleet. For instance,In December 2021, Volvo tested its new thermal management system that pre-heats a truck’s batteries using electrical components and electronic control units. The thermal system ensures the temperature is maintained under extreme weather conditions, thus increasing their demand to a large extent. Therefore, such medical condition has enhanced the Automotive Thermal Management System market CAGR across the globe in the recent years.


However, the increasing installation of advanced driver-assistance system in vehicles is another factor driving the growth of the Automotive Thermal Management System market revenue.
