This market research report identifies Thyssenkrupp, Sandvik, Nemak, and Linamar as the key vendors in the global aluminum crankcase market. This market research report also presents a detailed analysis of the market by application (inline engines and V6 and V8 engines) and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global aluminum crankcase market

Technavio’s market research report predicts that the global aluminum crankcase market will grow at a CAGR of above 7% during the forecast period. The downsizing of the large-capacity engines to mid-size engines will be one of the primary drivers for market growth. There is a growing trend of downsizing the larger capacity engines to mid-size engines delivering the same amount of power and the manufacturers are working on lowering the weight of the vehicles for better fuel efficiency. The introduction of stringent norms in Europe compel the European manufacturers to focus on the reduction of emissions and improve fuel efficiency, in turn driving engine downsizing. The diesel engines have already witnessed about 40% downsizing due to the stringent regulations regarding CO emissions and this trend is likely to move to petrol engines.

The rising application of aluminum in diesel engine blocks will also contribute to the growth of the aluminum crankcase market.  Though cast iron has been used in diesel engines for a long time, the rising implementation of lightweight measures is compeling manufacturers to utilize aluminum to reduce the engine weight. The aluminum is about 40% lesser in weight compared to steel. The engine blocks for gasoline engines are generally made from aluminum and the rising growth of aluminum alloys will drive the application of aluminum blocks in diesel engines.
