Automotive Air Intake Manifold (AIM) Market: Research Highlights
The auto industry has efficaciously been undergoing the most dynamic and disruptive technological advancements since the last decade. This is also leaving a great impact on each of the major components including air intake manifolds. There have been various advancements in air intake manifold regarding design, material, process, etc., to meet the changing market requirements, addressing stringent regulations regarding fuel efficiency and carbon emissions, and to remain competitive in the market. The industry is rapidly moving towards lightweight materials, such as composites and magnesium, to make the final component light in weight without sacrificing overall performance.
As per Stratview Research, the global automotive air intake manifold market is projected to grow at a healthy rate over the next five years to reach US$ 3,387.2 million in 2023. Organic growth in the automobile production owing to increasing disposable income and growing urbanization and increasing demand for lightweight air intake manifold to reduce the overall vehicle weight for achieving stringent government regulations, such as CAFÉ standards are the major growth drivers of the market.
The author of the report cited that passenger car is expected to remain the growth engine of the global automotive air intake manifold market during the forecast period. High number of car production and higher demand for lightweight products would continue to drive the segment over the next five years. It is estimated that approximately 481.9 million passenger cars are likely to be produced globally during 2018-2023.
Short fiber thermoplastic (SFT) is the most widely preferred material in the air intake manifold market as it offers many benefits over competing materials, such as low part cycle time, ability to manufacture complex products, recyclability, good surface finish, excellent strength to weight ratio, lightweight, and excellent temperature resistance. Composite air intake manifold is projected to further capture the market share of traditional metal-based air intake manifold during the forecast period.
Based on the product type, injection molding is likely to remain the most dominant process in the global automotive air intake manifold market during the forecast period. The auto industry looks for those manufacturing processes which can fabricate a final part in merely one to two minutes. Injection molding process is perfectly suited to the automotive industry and is ideal for the mass-production of small- to medium-sized complex parts. Composites, the largest material type for air intake manifold, heavily rely on the injection molding process.
In terms of region, Asia-Pacific is expected to remain the largest air intake manifold market during the forecast period. The region is also expected to experience the highest growth in the same period. Increasing automobile production, mainly in China and India, is likely to drive the demand for air intake manifolds in the region. Europe is expected to remain the second largest automotive air intake manifold market over the next five years. However, the region is expected to experience a moderate growth due to low growth in the light vehicle production.
Key automotive air intake manifold manufacturers are Mann+Hummel Group, MAHLE GmbH, Magneti Marelli S.p.A., Aisin Seiki Co., Ltd, Röchling Automotive, and Honda Foundry Co., Ltd. Producing lightweight air intake manifold and formation of strategic alliances are the key strategies adopted by the major players to gain a competitive edge in the market.
