This market research report identifies Delphi, DENSO, and Aisin Group as the key vendors in the global automotive engine actuators market. This report also presents a detailed analysis of the market by application (VVT system and electronic throttle system) and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and Europe).

Overview of the global automotive engine actuators market

Technavio’s market research report predicts that the global automotive engine actuators market will grow at a CAGR of nearly 8% during the forecast period. The increasing adoption of variable valve timing (VVT) system due to advantages like fuel economy is one of the primary drivers for market growth. VVT systems improve the fuel economy of vehicles and is one of the cost-effective ways of enhancing the fuel economy for the manufacturers. The VVT systems have increasingly gained popularity and manufacturers are focusing on equipping their vehicles with VVT systems. Additionally, the introduction of stringent norms related to fuel economy will act as another major driver for adoption of VVT systems.

One of the latest trends that will gain traction in the global automotive engine actuators market is the installation of dual VVTs in compact size passenger car engines. To improve the fuel efficiency and engine power output of the compact size cars, the manufacturers are focusing on equipping them with dual VVT systems. With the shifting fuel prices compeling customers to choose fuel-efficient cars, OEMs are increasingly focusing on downsizing engines to lower the overall curb weight and boost mileage figures. Since dual VVT systems offer a lightweight and cost-effective solution for improving the fuel efficiency and regulate the emissions, this demand from customers for fuel efficient vehicles will consequently drive the growth of the market in the next few years.

Competitive analysis and key vendors

The global automotive engine actuators market consists of few well-established vendors. The key vendors in the market are focusing on enhancing their customer base and increasing their investments in R&D. The improvements in technology and government regulations will intensify the level of competition in the already competitive market. Most of the advancements in the market are due to the rise in sales of mid and full-size passenger cars and the manufacturers are gradually equipping compact cars with VVT systems and cruise control to increase their output and fuel efficiency.

Key vendors in the market are:

  • Delphi
  • Aisin Group

Other prominent vendors include Eaton, Hitachi Automotive Systems, HUSCO International, Metaldyne, and Perodua.

Segmentation by product type and analysis of the automotive engine actuators market

  • VVT system
  • Electronic throttle system

During 2016, the VVT system dominated the product type segment of the automotive engine actuators market and is expected to continue its dominance over the next four years. The varying environment of vehicular emissions and the increased awareness among the consumers for fuel-efficient vehicles, will drive the growth of this market segment. Moreover, the rise in number of stringent regulations towards vehicular emissions that will propel the adoption of the VVT systems in passenger cars will also augment the segment’s growth in this market. 

Geographical segmentation and analysis of the automotive engine actuators market
