This industry research report identifies Linamar, Nemak, Sandvik Coromant, and ThyssenKrupp as the key vendors in the global automotive cylinder head market space. The report also presents a competitive analysis of the market by material (cast iron, aluminum, and titanium) and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global automotive cylinder head market

Market research analysts at Technavio have predicted that the global automotive cylinder head market will grow steadily at a CAGR of about 1% by 2020. The automotive industry is transitioning to electric vehicles and the recent years have seen an increasing adoption of electric vehicles in countries all across the globe, especially in the United States and Europe. Though more environment-friendly than gasoline-powered automobiles, electric vehicles account for less than 2% of the market share. Factors such as longer charging time, scarcity of charging stations, and expensive batteries hinder their adoption. Moreover, in terms of performance, power delivery, and driving range, electric vehicles are still not the ideal alternative to internal combustion engines. These drawbacks will continue to spur the demand for gasoline-powered automobiles and will, in turn, propel the demand for engine cylinder heads.

The recently introduced automobile regulations demand lower CO2 emissions and higher fuel efficiency and are fueling the drive for implementing efficient engine-downsizing strategies. The American automaker Ford has started using aluminum on its cylinder heads to optimize the overall weight of vehicles. Similarly, the German brand Volkswagen uses three-cylinder and four-cylinder configurations that offer effective thermal management in its new petrol engines. Volkswagen has also started using a very narrow single-scroll turbocharger, which eventually helps in reducing the weight of the cylinder head. Advancements like engine downsizing and engine platform modularization will lead to the requirement of smaller cylinder head designs and configurations, which will, in turn, have a positive impact on the growth of this market.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The market is characterized by the presence of several well-established international vendors and is highly competitive. The expected growth of the global automotive industry coupled with the increase in technological advancements will contribute to the rise in demand for automotive cylinder heads.

The leading vendors in the market are -

  • Linamar
  • Nemak
  • Sandvik Coromant
  • ThyssenKrupp

The other prominent vendors in the market are All-heads Services, Brodix, Elringklinger, Federal-Mogul, and Parker Hannifin.

Segmentation by material and analysis of the automotive cylinder head market

  • Cast iron
  • Aluminum
  • Titanium

The material and design used in the construction of the cylinder heads is a major component in building horsepower and torque. During 2015, the cast iron segment accounted for about 68% of the total share of the automotive cylinder head market. Cast iron offers durability and lower production and is extensively used by cylinder head manufacturers, Tier-1 suppliers, and OEMs. Though the market is shifting towards light, efficient, and powerful engines, the demand for cast iron cylinder heads from OEMs to use in entry level and mid-segment vehicles will continue in the coming years.

Geographical segmentation and analysis of the automotive cylinder head market

  • Americas
  • APAC
  • EMEA

This market study estimates that APAC will account for about 45% of the global automotive cylinder head market by 2020 and will dominate the market in the next four years. APAC has emerged as a global hub for the automobile industry, and there is a rapid increase in the rate of automobile exports from this region. The region is also a major consumer of automobiles and the rising demand for smaller cars in countries such as India, Indonesia, Thailand, and Myanmar will drive market growth.

In an automobile engine, the cylinder head is present above the cylinders on top of the cylinder block and forms the combustion chamber. A head gasket seals this joint, which provides space for the passages that feed air and fuel to the cylinder. The head can also be a base to mount valves, spark plugs, and fuel injectors. A cylinder head needs to be robust as it has to withstand huge pressures and high temperatures and have to retain their shape and form to seal the cylinder block. Cylinder heads are the key to controlling air flow in and out of the cylinders and fuel deployment.
