Automotive Engine Cylinder Block Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Automotive Engine Cylinder Block Market according to our research experts:

Passenger Car Segment Likely to Hold Majority Share in the Market

The Passenger car segment of the market expected to grow significantly over the forecast period owing to rising vehicle production and growing customer base across the world. For example, In 2021, some 56.4 million passenger cars were sold globally, up by about five percent year-on-year. At just under 21.5 million units, China was the world's largest regional market for automobiles in 2021. Further, In passenger cars, the automotive engine cylinder block supports an internal combustion engine.Motion is transmitted from the vehicle's crankshaft through the transmission and onto each wheel by the powertrain.When you accelerate or apply pressure to your brakes, the crankshaft, on one end, rotates, and the wheels, on the other, slow down.

Several key OEMS are actively launching new models and are focusing on enhancing their existing IC engine portfolio which in coming years expected to enhance overall demand in the market. For instance,

  • In November 2020, Volkswagen de México announced an investment of USD 233.5 million for the production of the new EA211 engine at the Silao engine plant in Guanajuato and said engine will be integrated into the production of Volkswagen models in the North America region. For its production, the Silao plant installed a new complete engine assembly line, as well as new production lines for the block, crankshaft, cylinder heads and connecting rods.

Furthermore, with the growing focus on improved fuel economy and reduced exhaust emissions, are expected to witness fast growth during the forecast period. However, growing electric vehicles result in decline in demand for engine cyclinder blocks, despite the fact that EVS are on rise the majority of the market is still dominated by IC engines. It is anticipated that the rising demand for high-end automobiles and the use of high-power engines in racing will soon contribute to the expansion of the automotive engine market. Therefore, the above mentioned trends and developments in market expected to contribute for growth of passenger car segment of the market studied over the forecast period.
