Automotive Cylinder Liner Market Analysis

The automotive cylinder liner market is valued at USD 5.05 billion and is anticipated to surpass a net valuation of USD 7.04 billion, registering a CAGR of 6.87% over the forecast period.

  • Rising sales of commercial vehicles and increasing vehicle parc globally serve as major determinants for the growth of the automotive market across the world, which, in turn, is positively impacting the demand for the automotive cylinder liner. Commercial vehicle growth is primarily influenced by the expansion of e-commerce and the increasing use of commercial vehicles for transportation. Aside from that, rising industrialization and infrastructure development, which support advancement and development in the automotive industry, drive market growth for commercial vehicles. According to the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers, global new commercial vehicle sales touched 24.1 million units in 2022.
  • Further, rising demand for hydrogen electric commercial vehicles across major regions is pushing cylinder liner manufacturers to develop advanced technology. Several key players are introducing cylinder liner technology for hydrogen-electric trucks, which in turn is likely to enhance the surging demand in the market. Furthermore, vehicle scrappage programs and stringent regulatory norms for vehicle length and loading limits, among other parameters, will contribute to driving the demand of the market.
  • Asia-Pacific is the largest region that is expected to dominate the consumption of automotive cylinder liners market, owing to the increased potential of the automotive industry in India and China. Moreover, various countries across the globe, such as the United States, source raw materials and engine components from China, Japan, and other economies to assemble them under the complete engine chamber. With rising automotive sales and auto production, the region's demand for cylinder liners is expected to remain high.

Automotive Cylinder Liner Market Trends

Passenger Car Segment of the Market to Gain Traction during the forecast period

  • Passenger cars are the most common form of transport in emerging countries. As per capita income increases, the number of passenger cars is also increasing in developing countries, and such factors are likely to positively impact the automotive cylinder liner market. Emerging countries such as India are looking for better fuel for their passenger cars, such as ethanol, which will positively impact the market growth.
  • For instance, in August 2023, Toyota Innova became the world's first flexible fuel vehicle that can run entirely on ethanol. Toyota Motor will become the first automaker in the world to introduce cars powered by 100% ethanol. India Union Minister launched a vehicle based on Toyota's most popular passenger car, the Innova, in August 2023. Innova became the first model in the world to feature a Bharat Phase VI vehicle with a flexible fuel electric certificate. The launch comes a year after the Japanese auto giant introduced the Mirai, which uses hydrogen fuel cells as fuel.
  • Increasing emissions regulations, penetration of electric vehicles, and lack of fossil fuel reserves due to the toxic impact of internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles on the environment could challenge the growth of the market. However, in emerging countries, there needs to be more infrastructure for electric vehicles, and charging facilities could facilitate the expansion of the internal combustion engine market during the forecast period. According to the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA), global new passenger car sales touched 57.4 million in 2022, recording a Y-o-Y growth of 1.9% compared to 2021. Countries such as South Africa and Thailand have witnessed 19.5% and 10.0% Y-o-Y growth in their new passenger car sales in 2022 compared to the previous year.
  • Further, the rising urbanization rate and consumers shifting preference towards availing of private transportation medium is anticipated to drive the automotive industry around the globe, which in turn is expected to drive the demand for advanced automotive cylinder liner market. According to the World Bank, the urbanization rate in India stood at 36% in 2022, compared to 34% in 2018. As more consumers migrate to urban areas in developing nations, there will exist a preference for personal mobility, which in turn will lead to the growth of the automotive cylinder liner market across the world.

Asia-Pacific to Hold Largest Market Share During Forecast Period

  • The Asia-Pacific automotive cylinder liner market is witnessing elevated sales of cylinder liner products owing to the expanding auto sector of China and India. Both countries are fuelling vehicle sales, generating a significant amount of engine demand.
  • India is one of the major automobile exporters, and strong export growth is expected shortly, seeing its present mobility expansion projects. Furthermore, favorable initiatives by the government of India to support the automotive industry and the presence of major automakers in the Indian market are assisting in developing India as one of the major automobile exporters. The automotive sector received a cumulative FDI inflow of approximately USD 33.77 billion between April 2000 and September 2022. The government of India expects to double the automotive sector size to USD 18 billion by 2024. Further, China holds the dominating hand in the Asia-Pacific region regarding auto industry throughput and engine production.
  • In 2022, the total number of vehicles sold in China stood up at 26.8 million units as compared to 26.27 million units in 2021, registering a year-on-year growth of 2.2%. The region is witnessing extended investment, expansion, and development proliferated by key engine manufacturers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). This has mitigated demand for cylinder liners over the longer-term forecast period.
  • For instance, in March 2022, Harbin Dongan Auto Engine Co. Ltd. unveiled its investment plan for 2022 for building a production line for high-efficiency extended-range engines, which will involve the machining center, marking machines, tightening machines, gluing machines, and other equipment. Further, the project will be jointly maintained by Harbin Dongan Automotive Engine Manufacturing Co. Ltd, the subsidiary of Harbin Dongan Auto Engine, with a total investment of CNY 72.33 million (USD 10.85 million).
  • Therefore, with the expanding passenger car and commercial vehicle industry of the Asia-Pacific region, the demand for the automotive cylinder liner market will showcase a rapid surge in the coming years. However, shifting the government's focus to promote the adoption of electric vehicles might potentially act as a major deterrent to the growth of these products in the long run in the Asia-Pacific region. However, a competitive shift towards electrification of vehicle fleets in the short run is a major challenge for these governments. Therefore, the demand for automotive cylinder liner products remains strong during the forecast period.
