The automotive heat exchanger market in APAC is expected to reach USD 17.03 billion by 2017, growing at a CAGR of 9.75% by 2020. The overall market for heat exchangers in Asia-Pacific is witnessing high industrial growth rate, primarily due to an ever-increasing demand for heat exchangers because of their diverse applications. The demand for automotive heat exchangers in APAC depends on several factors such as the production and demand for automobiles and the number of vehicles on the road. In the emerging and developing countries of APAC, the demand for automotive heat exchangers is driven by the production of new vehicles. In addition, the automotive heat exchanger manufacturers in the APAC region have started to invest heavily in the lightweight automotive material ( like aluminum) , which is expected to enhance the demand for automotive heat exchangers significantly in the region. The increased penetration of passenger vehicles in the last 3 years in the region has driven the growth of the automotive aftermarket, which has helped significantly in the growth of the automotive heat exchanger market in the region.
Asia-Pacific Heat Exchanger Market Dynamics
With the increase in globalization, there is increased competition among automotive heat exchanger manufacturers across the Asia-Pacific to manufacture best-in-class products with increased functional competency. For instance, the increased demand for automotive radiators (heat exchangers used for cooling internal combustion engines) in the aftermarket is expected to mainly drive the demand for automotive heat exchangers in this segment. Vendors have started focusing on the aftermarket segment in addition to catering to the OEM’s in an attempt to extend their market presence among end-users. Furthermore, there is increased competition among automotive heat exchanger vendors to attain the maximum possible share of this market.
The automotive heat exchanger market in the APAC region is expected to grow at a faster rate than the market in the Americas during the forecast period. The market in the APAC region will be mainly driven by the developing countries like China and India. In addition, there is demand for automotive heat exchangers from Japan and South Korea, with increased demand for premium vehicles that use a greater number of heat exchangers. In addition, the implementation of stringent emission norms has resulted in OEM’s pushing for technologies that assist in complying with the standards. For instance, the application of exhaust gas recirculation cooling in diesel engines helps automakers reduce nitrogen oxide emission. However, the constraint in the supply of raw material such as copper and aluminum makes their availability fall short of their demand from the automotive heat exchanger market.
The market is segmented on the basis of application, design type, vehicle type, and by country. The automotive radiator leads the market with a share of more than 65% in the application types. Similarly, the market for plate fin heat exchangers is expected to dominate the market in 2020, with tube-fin generating a significantly high CAGR during the forecast period. The growth in the electric vehicle segment would also be significantly higher than the traditional ICE vehicles. The automotive heat exchanger market in APAC is fragmented and highly competitive with the presence of a large number of vendors. The market is characterized by the presence of well-diversified international as well as regional vendors. The regional vendors provide cost-effective products with limited features and functionalities.
