The automotive active grille shutter market is likely to grow at an impressive double-digit rate over the next five years to reach US$ 1,206.0 million in 2024. The auto industry has efficaciously been ushering in a new era of aerodynamic vehicles with a meticulous investment into advanced components that can address the changing business requirements in the most effective manner. All the major automakers have vigorously been incorporating active components in their most-renowned vehicle models with the purpose to improve the overall fuel efficiency of vehicles in order to address stringent government regulations, such as CAFE Standards and EU Commission on Carbon Emissions Reduction Targets.
Active grille shutter is a key component of active aerodynamic family and has been catching the automakers’ attention by offering a vast list of advantages. On an average, AGS offers signification weight reduction up to 20% and improvement in aerodynamic performance up to 30% as compared to non-AGS vehicle. Today, AGS has successfully found its presence in both premium vehicle models as well as mass-produced vehicle models of almost all major automakers including Ford, GM, Toyota, BMW, Lincoln, Honda, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, and Rolls Royce.
The biggest factor driving the market for AGS is an incessant increase in its penetration in the automotive industry year on year as all the major automakers are incorporating this technology in their major vehicle models. One side, major automakers are working closely with the AGS suppliers in order to make their vehicle more fuel efficient, whereas another side, AGS suppliers are working hard to quickly meet automakers’ rising demand for a well-engineered, high-quality AGS system that helps to address fuel economy standards.
AGS has a disruptive journey so far in the automotive industry and has evolved a lot with changing market needs and designs. However, to maintain the growth momentum, AGS must to adapt itself as per the new business environments including a greater incorporation of ADAS (Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems) electronics, such as auto-braking and auto cruise control; the development of new diesel and electric engines; and introduction of more stringent regulations regarding pedestrian protection and carbon emission reductions.
The development of innovative AGS solutions is an indispensable focus area of the AGS suppliers based on the requirements of auto OEMs. The market for AGS is marked by major global automotive tier players including Rochling Automotive, Magna International Inc., and Valeo SA. Also, it is expected that the excellent growth of active grill shutters may entice other players to enter the market to tap the growth potential.
