Market Overview

The automotive belts and hoses market is expected to register a CAGR of over 6.5% during the forecast period, 2020 - 2025.

  • The belts and hoses market is growing, owing to the rise in the demand for powertrains and other ancillary components. The stringency of emission control norms of the EPA and CAFE has led to improvements in exhaust and turbocharger hoses.
  • The intensity of competition in the market is high, due to the presence of many regional players.
  • Asia-Pacific continues to hold a major share of more than 30% in the global market, followed by Europe and North America. Additionally, companies in Asia-Pacific are expanding their production capacities to capture the growing demand in the region during the forecast period.

Scope of the Report

Belts and hoses are responsible for the overall performance of the vehicle. Belts are an integral part of the engine’s powertrain system that transmits power from flywheel to the camshaft. Fuel efficiency is related to belts, as they regulate the valve positioning. Drive belts and timing belts are two categories of belts. Hoses are flexible pipes that allow the transportation of fluids with varying pressures. Brake hoses, power steering hoses, and turbocharger hoses are a few types of hoses. The aforementioned types of belts and hoses have been considered under the scope of the market.

Key Market Trends

The Automotive Market to Witness Demand for High-performance Hoses

Owing to the increasing demand for fuel efficiency of vehicles, the adoption of turbochargers has increased significantly. Hoses are deployed around the turbocharger system to predominantly handle the temperatures of exhaust gases.

Additionally, the adoption of electrically assisted power steering has also influenced the market for power steering hoses.  

The EPA and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have been taking coordinated steps to enable the production of a new generation of clean vehicles, through reduced greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and improved fuel use from on-road vehicles and engines. Thus, the use of blended fuels in fuel delivery systems increased the usage of hoses extensively.

Thus, to meet such desired characteristics of vehicle systems, high demand for high-performance hoses in automotive applications was noticed during 2016-2018. Therefore, hose manufacturers have started investing in the production high-performance hoses to capture the growing demand from the automotive market.

For instance, in March 2018, Evonik Industries AG (Evonik) announced its plans to boost the production of high-performance polymer polyamide 12 (PA 12) in products, like automotive fuel hoses. The company announced its plans to invest EUR 400 million in its major plant in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, and add facilities to the plant to manufacture the polymer and its precursors. The new facilities are expected to begin operations in early 2021, and it is anticipated that the company's global PA 12 capacity may increase by more than 50%.

Asia-Pacific Continues to Capture the Major Market Share

The growing automobile sector in Asia-Pacific, with India and China emerging as automotive part manufacturing hubs for the Western automobile giants, is expected to drive the market for belts and hoses in this region.

Additionally, with the growing sales of hybrid and electric vehicles in the region, the demand for high-performance and lightweight belts and hoses (primarily made of polymer) is likely to grow in line with the production of electric vehicles during the forecast period.

Thus, to capture the growing demand in the market, companies in the region have started extending their production capacities.

For instance, in August 2018, Nichirin Co. Ltd (Nichirin) constructed a new plant for the manufacturing of automobile and motorcycle hoses in Jiangsu Province, China, together with the Chinese joint venture partner, Shanghai Beicai Industry Co. Ltd. The company also plans to extend its production operation in Indonesia and Vietnam, in order to capture the growing demand in the Asia-Pacific automotive market.
