Presently, fuel efficiency is the biggest concern among consumers, as fuel prices are skyrocketing on a regular basis, owing to the limited availability of fuel. The performance of the vehicle also depends on the engine. Hence, vehicle manufacturers are forced to manufacture efficient engines, that can satisfy both requirements and deliver improved performance & fuel efficiency at the same time. Car turbos are primarily turbo-boosted engines that are compact in size and specifically designed to increase fuel efficiency in compliance with the Corporate Average Fuel Economy standards, which are applicable worldwide. Hence, improved engine performance and fuel efficiency are considered one of the prime reasons for the strong demand for turbochargers.

  • In June 2023, the new X300-L series of Car turbos from Accelleron were introduced for two-stroke engines. The platform-based and simple-service concept combined with Accelleron's Turbo Insights digital technology establishes a new standard for turbocharging and gives ship operators the flexibility to adapt to the uncertainty surrounding the fuels they will use and how they will run their vessels in the future.

Turbocharger Market Trends

  • Development of electric turbochargers to boost the market growth

A dynamic growth in the production and sales of automobiles will positively influence the industry outlook. Over the last few decades, the automotive sector has emerged as a more flexible, reliable, efficient, and strong business. Automakers and automobile product manufacturers across the globe, particularly in the developed nations of North America, are dedicating significant resources and investments for optimum capacity utilization. Improvements in consumer finance, better credit availability, revived consumer spending and novel trends in the automotive sector will help consolidate product demand.

Further, the increase in the demand for electric turbochargers has enhanced the market CAGR across the globe in recent years. Due to turbo lag elimination, electric turbochargers offer more power and better fuel efficiency. Electric turbochargers combine a high-powered turbine and a motor-driven compressor, which operate as soon as the driver presses the pedal. Electric turbos offer several benefits and fewer technical challenges. Prominent players such as Garrett Motion, BorgWarner, and Continental AG have successfully launched their 48V e-turbos. These e-turbos are fuel-efficient and offer improved power output. Therefore, the demand for these Car turbos is anticipated to be high in the coming years and positively impact the turbos market revenue.

Additionally, The emerging trend of lightweight engines in commercial vehicles is leading the shift toward direct gasoline engines, thereby positively influencing the growth of vehicular turbo. Owing to the rising imposition of stringent automotive emission norms across the globe, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) are employing engine-downsizing strategies to optimize the fuel efficiency of vehicles. This trend is expected to fuel the demand for Car turbos since they play a key role in curbing vehicle emissions and enhancing fuel efficiency.

However, it helps in increasing the amount of energy diesel produces. Therefore, Car turbos reduce emissions by converting a more proportion of fuel into carbon dioxide or water in contrast with toxic emissions. Hence, the rising number of automotive industry players are integrating turbocharging to meet government emission norms.

Turbocharger Market Segment Insights:

Diesel and petrol are included in the market segmentation for turbochargers depending on fuel type.   

VGT/VNT, wastegate, and electric turbochargers are the three Car turbos technologies. In 2021, the wastegate sector dominated the market and will experience the fastest CAGR going forward.

With respect to sales channels, the turbos market has been split into OEM and aftermarket. The majority of the turbocharger market's revenue in 2021 was generated by the aftermarket sector.

  • February 2023

According to Dorman Products Inc., 400 brand-new automobile parts, including 130 aftermarket-only products, are now available. The new products include a dozen Dorman OE FIX repair alternatives that could help you save time, and money, or improve dependability.

Dorman has announced the addition of two additional items to its already wide range of Car turbos parts and accessories. A turbo air intercooler (918-550) and a boost pressure relief valve (667-515) are two brand-new components that will fit around 3.5 million popular Ford and Lincoln cars.

Turbocharger Type Insights

The turbocharger market segmentation, based on sales channels, includes OEM and aftermarket. The aftermarket segment held the majority share 2021 of the turbos market revenue. This is primarily owing to the increasing installation rate of components such as Car turbos in commercial and passenger vehicles due to overuse during the large distance of travel. However, OEM is the fastest-growing category over the forecast period. OEMs are focusing on energy-efficient systems to reduce their overall carbon footprint and comply with ambitious targets for reducing greenhouse gases. This scenario represents lucrative business prospects for manufacturers.

Turbocharger Fuel Type Insights

The turbocharger market segmentation, based on fuel type, includes diesel and gasoline. The diesel segment dominated the market in 2021 and is projected to be the faster-growing segment during the forecast period, 2024-2030. The diesel engine produces less carbon dioxide, which helps in improving the turbo efficiency, provides high durability and increases fuel efficiency. However, gasoline is the fastest-growing category over the forecast period. Gasoline-powered engines and Car turbos continue to have significant manufacturing and customer preference because of their high RPM capabilities in passenger vehicles. Hence, high PRM capabilities and engine performance positively impact market growth.

Turbocharger Technology Insights

The turbocharger market data has been bifurcated by technology into VGT/VNT, wastegate, and electric turbochargers. The wastegate segment dominated the market in 2021 and is projected to be the faster-growing segment during the forecast period, 2024-2030. The majority of automotive manufacturers use wastegate Automotive turbos in their engines as they control the sudden boost levels through electric actuated bypass valves. However, VGT is the fastest-growing category over the forecast period. The advantages of implementing a VGT Automotive turbos are a higher air-fuel ratio and higher peak torque at low engine speeds, improved vehicle accelerations without the need to resort to turbines with high pumping loss at high engine speeds, and the ability to provide engine braking.
