Overview of the global automotive radiator market

Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the global automotive radiator market will grow steadily over the next four years and post a CAGR of more than 4% in million units by 2021. This market research analysis identifies the increasing sale of passenger cars as one of the key growth factors for the global automotive radiator market. The sale of radiators in the passenger cars showed a tremendous growth, especially in the SUVs and crossovers segment. The growth of automotive radiator market can be attributed to a decrease in interest rates on the car loans, which further motivates the consumers to purchase large and expensive vehicles. It has been observed that during 2015, the sale of SUVs and crossovers in the passenger cars segment in the US increased by over 10%. To bridge the gap between the demand and supply, several other equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in the market are planning on robust expansion to enhance their product portfolio. For instance, Toyota is planning to relocate its auto production unit to Mexico to meet the rising demand for SUVs in the US and Canada.

Along with the preference for passenger cars, the demand for lightweight and compact radiators is also fueling the growth of the automotive radiator market. For the agile and efficient dissipation of heat, the engine requires the need for regulators. OEMs are moving toward compact and lightweight auto radiators without comprising the cooling efficiency. To tackle the rising demand, manufacturers are focusing on reducing the size of the radiators while keeping the weight of the vehicle intact for better fuel economy. This shift toward lightweight and compact radiators is fueling the growth of the market.
