Germany Automotive Heat Exchanger Market- Forecasts and Trends (2020 - 2025)

Looking to buy the report?

The automotive heat exchanger market in Germany is expected to reach USD 3.62 billion by 2017, growing at a CAGR of 8.87% by 2020. The growth in the passenger vehicle segment in the country has had a significant influence on the growth of the European heat exchanger market. Germany has accounted for more than 30% share in the passenger cars manufactured in Europe. Increased adoption of energy-efficient components due to stringent emission norms is one of the key propellants driving the growth of the automotive market. The increased concern among the OEM’s for fuel economy makes them emphasize on lightweight automotive materials. The demand for these materials in the manufacture of automobiles has made the heat exchanger manufacturers focus on energy-efficient and lighter materials as well. The increased demand for electric and hybrid vehicles is also significantly driving the growth of the market. Hybrid and electric vehicles require low-temperature heat exchangers along with normal heat exchangers for regulated battery cooling.

Germany Automotive Heat Exchanger Market- Opportunities

The revival of the German automotive sector is a huge propellant for the growth of the heat exchanger market. Germany’s automotive sector has emerged as the country’s most innovative industry sector, accounting for one-thirds of the total German industry R&D expenditure of EUR 56 billion in 2014. German automotive companies are responsible for more than 60 % of R&D growth in Europe. Automotive engineers in Germany are hard at work, improving internal combustion engine efficiency, developing alternative drive technologies (including electric, hybrid, and fuel cell cars), and also adopting lightweight materials and electronics. Increased investment in R&D has also brought about significant evolution in the manufacturing of automotive heat exchangers.

Germany Heat Exchanger Market- Technological Developments

Heat exchangers used in today’s automobiles are based on tube / fin designs. Numerous tube/ fin design aluminum automotive heat exchangers are built by the prominent vendors in Germany For instance, Mahle Behr GmbH & Co has designed numerous varieties of aluminum automotive heat exchangers with tubular and fin-shaped designs. Similarly, Novellis uses advanced and innovative technologies like flex caster continuous casting technology, TRC technology fusion, TM multi-layer casting technology and DC processing technology in the making of superior but lightweight aluminum sheets for heat exchangers exclusively in the HVAC system. The growing popularity of aluminum in the automotive heat exchanger market is also driven by the high thermal conductivity of aluminum, coupled with its corrosion- resistant nature.

The market is segmented on the basis of application, design type, and vehicle type.  The automotive radiator leads the market with a share of around of 48% in the application types. The growth in the electric passenger vehicle segment is expected to be the highest among the vehicle types. The automotive heat exchanger market is fragmented and highly competitive with the presence of a large number of small and medium-scale vendors.

Some of the key players in the market are:

  • Denso
  • Mahle
  • Valeo
  • Visteon
