    Market Insights

    The global automotive turbocharger market was estimated at USD 12 Billion in 2021 and is likely to grow at a CAGR of 10.44% from 2022-2028 to reach USD 24.28 Billion in 2028.

    The key automotive turbocharger market drivers are:
    • an expected rebound in vehicle production,
    • emission and fuel efficiency regulations,
    • Increasing penetration/installation rates of turbochargers in gasoline engine-powered vehicles is the driving force of the market during the forecast period.

    The fuel efficiency and environmental emission regulations in many developed and developing countries are putting pressure on automakers to either reduce the vehicle weight or downsize the engine to achieve the targets. The automakers are downsizing engines to meet the stringent global fuel economy and emission regulations and customer demand for better-performing vehicles. Turbochargers help downsized engines improve fuel economy by 20% to 40% as compared to larger, naturally aspirated engines.
