Opportunities for automotive turbocharger to reach $19.5 billion by 2021

   December 29, 2016

According to a new market report published by Lucintel, the future of the global automotive turbocharger market looks promising with opportunities in the OEM and aftermarkets. The global automotive turbocharger market is expected to reach an estimated $19.5 billion by 2021. The global automotive turbocharger market is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 10.1% from 2016 to 2021. The major drivers of growth for this market are increasing trends towards engine downsizing, stringent government emission norms for fuel efficiency, growth of the global automotive production, and consumer concerns about fuel efficiency.

In this market, the major segments include wastegate, variable geometry turbocharger, and twin turbo. On the basis of its comprehensive research, Lucintel forecasts that the twin turbo technology segment is expected to show above average growth during the forecast period.

Within the global automotive turbocharger market, the wastegate segment is expected to remain the largest market. There is continuous implementation of fuel emission regulations in developing regions and increasing awareness about fuel efficiency among customers, which leads to increased use of this technology in commercial vehicles, which would spur growth for this segment over the forecast period.

North America is expected to remain the largest region due to stringent carbon emission regulations by NHTSA. These regulations force OEMs to look for innovations to achieve engine downsizing. Also, consumer awareness of fuel efficiency is leading to the use of turbochargers in gasoline vehicles and increasing investment by the industry players within the North America region.

North America and Asia Pacific are expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period because of rapidly increasing demand for turbochargers in China, India, Japan, and the US.


For business expansion, Lucintel’s report suggests innovation and new product development to produce higher power output turbochargers with lower emission levels. The report further suggests the development of partnerships with customers to create win-win situations and the development of low-cost solutions for customers.


Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the industry, include the development of electric turbocharger and development of ball bearing turbocharger. BorgWarner Inc., Honeywell International Inc., IHI Corporation, Cummins Inc., and Mitsubishi heavy Industries are the major turbocharger supplies in the global automotive turbocharger market. Of these, several are seeking mergers and acquisitions as strategic initiatives to drive growth.
