Motor Vehicle Parts Manufacturers Are Increasingly Using Light Weight Vehicle Components To Improve Fuel Efficiency

Motor Vehicle Parts Manufacturing

Motor vehicle parts manufacturers are increasingly using light weight vehicle components to improve fuel efficiency. Light weight vehicle components enable motor vehicle manufacturers to reduce the overall weight of the vehicle, thus, lowering the fuel consumption. This improves the fuel efficiency of the vehicle while ensuring safety norms are complied. In this regard, automotive parts manufacturers are using advanced composites and high strength metals for producing motor vehicle parts. For instance, in February 2015, automotive engineering and consulting company Ricardo and aerospace composite supplier Albany Engineered Composites (AEC) entered into a partnership to provide light weight vehicle components such as composite body, chassis and other structural components to automobile manufacturers. This partnership includes the use of AEC’s technologies such as 3D composites for providing strength and durability required for motor vehicles. MOTOR VEHICLE PARTS MANUFACTURING MARKET TO GROW TO $3.5 TRILLION BY 2020 ACCORDING TO THE BUSINESS RESEARCH COMPANY The Business Research Company expects the global motor vehicle parts manufacturing market is expected to grow from $2.6 trillion in 2016 to $3.5 trillion in 2020 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.1%.Asia Pacific was the largest region in the motor vehicle parts manufacturing market in 2016, accounting for $1133 billion or 44.1% market share. This was due to a large middle class population in China and India, availability of skilled manpower to manufacture motor vehicle parts for automakers in this region.

According to The Business Research Company’s Transportation Consultant, Abdul Wasay, motor vehicle parts manufacturers are producing engines that offer higher fuel economy and better performance. Efficient combustion engines increase the fuel economy of motor vehicles and also enable motor vehicle manufacturers to meet emission norms of several state and national governments across the world. They are using technologies such as advanced ignition, direct fuel injection, variable valve timing, and advanced transmission to reduce engine size and increase its power. For instance, in December 2016, automotive manufacturer Toyota launched new engines based on its Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) for standard gasoline and hybrid vehicles. TNGA-based motor vehicle engines are expected to offer 20% better fuel economy and 10% better power performance, as compared to Toyota’s existing engines.

Bosch Gmbh was the largest competitor in the motor vehicle parts manufacturing market in 2016 with a 1.89% market share. Bosch is manufactures and distributes technology and services. Bosch’s growth strategy is to increase investment in the automotive parts manufacturing business. In April 2017, Bosch established an automotive electronics plant in Changzhou, China. This plant manufactures electronic components for automated driving and connected products such as cameras and radar sensors for driver assistance systems, and Electronic Control Units (ECU) for automotive steering systems. Bosch plans to invest over EUR 100 million ($110.7 million) and employ 1,300 new associates at this plant, by 2019. The motor vehicle parts manufacturing industry comprises companies manufacturing motor vehicle parts including engines. This industry includes companies manufacturing new motor vehicle parts as well as spare parts. This market includes companies manufacturing motor vehicle parts for both original equipment manufacturers and replacement market.
