    The automotive industry is undergoing the most potentially disruptive decade where stringent government regulations regarding the carbon emission reductions and fuel efficiency enhancements are generating enormous pressure on automakers. Automakers are unraveling it by finding distinct ways. Engine downsizing is one of the prime approaches for achieving such industry needs. Engine downsizing makes the engine hotter but makes the engine more powerful and efficient and give an impetuous growth in the demand for turbochargers in vehicles. This creates a need for effective cooling of charged air through charge air cooler (CAC) (also known as an intercooler).

    Hot air entering engine can create a higher combustion temperature, which creates a greater nitrogen oxide formation and increases the thermal load on the engine and related components. Charge air cooler act as a cooling interface, which transforms hot air coming from a turbocharger or a supercharger to cool air entering combustion engine. CACs also contribute towards a reduction in turbo lag and an improvement in engine volumetric efficiency with lower engine displacement.

    Automotive Charge Air Cooler (CAC) Market Share Analysis

    Automotive Charge Air Cooler Market Share

    Automotive Charge Air Cooler (CAC) Market Share by Vehicle Type

    The global automotive charge air cooler market is segmented based on the vehicle type as Passenger Car, LCV, and M&HCV. Passenger car is expected to remain the growth engine of the global automotive charge air cooler market during the forecast period. The high production of cars coupled with increased adoption of charge air cooler in gasoline engines is driving the segment.

    Automotive Charge Air Cooler (CAC) Market Share by Type of Inflators

    Based on the product type, the automotive charge air cooler market is segmented as Air-Cooled Charge Air Cooler (also known as Air-to-Air Charge Air Cooler) and Liquid-Cooled Charge Air Cooler (also known as Water-Cooled Charge Air Cooler). Air-cooled charge air cooler is expected to remain the dominant product type in the market during the forecast period, whereas liquid-cooled charge air cooler is likely to grow at a faster rate during the same period. Smaller packaging space with reduced duct length, reduction in a pressure loss, an improvement in power and torque delivery, and enhanced efficiency are some of the key whys and wherefores for faster growth of liquid cooled charge air cooler as compared to air-cooled charge air cooler.

    Another factor evoking interest towards the usage of a liquid-cooled charge air cooler is its versatility. It can be adjusted in various configurations, such as remote mounting or self-contained and can be integrated into the intake manifold or supercharger housing. On the other hand, an air-cooled charge air cooler is generally mounted standalone in the front of radiator only.

    Automotive Charge Air Cooler (CAC) Market Share by Fuel Type

    Based on the fuel type, the automotive charge air cooler market is segmented as Diesel Engine-based Charge Air Cooler and Gasoline Engine-based Charge Air Cooler. The diesel engine is expected to remain the dominant segment of the automotive charge air cooler market during the forecast period, whereas gasoline engine is expected to witness higher growth during the same period.

    Regional Insights

    In terms of regions, Asia-Pacific is likely to be the largest automotive CAC market over the next five years. The region is likely to experience the highest growth during the same period. China and India are the growth engine of Asia-Pacific’s market for charge air coolers. Both countries together accounted for more than 60% of the Asia-Pacific’s market and are likely to grow at an impressive double-digit growth rate during the forecast period.

    Europe is likely to be the second-largest automotive charge air cooler market during the forecast period, owing to the high penetration of diesel engine vehicles coupled with a greater penetration of turbochargers to address the strict emission norms of European Commission. North America, another considerable region, is also likely to generate a healthy demand for charge air cooler in the coming years, primarily propelled by the USA and Mexico.
