Key Market Trends

Battery Thermal Management witness Major Market Share

A battery thermal management system is primarily used in vehicles for managing and controlling the cell’s temperature in a battery pack. Safe and optimum use of the energy stored is highly essential in a vehicle battery pack due to the growing electrification in vehicles. Also, features like start/stop, electric power steering, and electric braking systems have increased the power load on the battery. Therefore, prioritizing all these electrical loads on a scale, from comfort to safety, has been a major issue in the vehicle electric system. Hence, the intelligent battery management system (IBMS) has been gaining attention among automakers, which aids its adoption across the world.

Moreover, factors such as the increasing demand for electric vehicles and energy storage systems and the growing consumption of rechargeable batteries in consumer electronics, coupled with technical advancements, are significantly aiding the market’s growth. For instance, in 2019, electric vehicle sales reached nearly 2.2% of the global electric vehicle market as various new models hit the road.

Automotive Thermal Management Market

Asia-Pacific continues to capture 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 the thermal management system in this region.

Additionally, with growing sales of hybrid and electric vehicles in the region, the demand for high-performance and lightweight thermal management systems is likely to grow 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 developing and extending their business operations. For instance, in August 2019, Marelli Corporation (Kita-Ku, Saitama City, Japan) announced that it had signed a strategic partnership agreement with China-based Shanghai Highly (Group) Co., Ltd.

Automotive Thermal Management Market Growth Rate

Competitive Landscape

The automotive thermal management market is moderately consolidated with the major players, such as Denso Corporation, Robert Bosch GmbH, Mahle GmbH, and Modine Manufacturing Company.

With the growing trend of lightweight and fuel-efficient vehicles, companies have started investing to produce more advanced thermal management systems to improve vehicle efficiency and meet the growing demand for vehicle electrification systems in the global automotive industry.
