This market research study identifies COMPCams, Crower Cams & Equipment, Lunati, SM Motorenteile, Schaeffler, and NSK as the leading players in the global automotive roller tappets market. A comprehensive analysis of this market is also presented by product type (low-torque roller tappets, mechanical roller tappets, and hydraulic roller tappets) and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global automotive roller tappets market

According to Technavio’s market research report, the global automotive roller tappets market will grow at a CAGR of close to 7% during the forecast period. The increasing adoption of variable valve timing (VVT) or dual VVT engines will drive the growth prospects for the market until the end of 2021. The VVT technology is highly incorporated in high-performance vehicles and racing cars. This technology enhances the valve timing and changes the duration of the valve while the engine is still running. These systems improve the engine efficiency and increase the revolutions per minute (RPM). Variable valve timing and lift electronic control (VTEC) is an advanced VVT technology that allows engine to have multiple camshafts using electronic and mechanical systems. The tappets are highly used in these camshafts. The growing adoption of VTEC will have a direct influence on the demand for tappets.

The introduction of roller bearing in roller tappets is one of the key trends that will gain traction in the automotive roller tappets market. The adoptonof roller bearings improves the durability of the needle rollers or roller tappets because the shaft of the tappet with roller bearing is covered with chrome plating. The replacement of the conventional roller tappet with sliding bearing with roller bearing also improves the efficiency of automobile diesel engines.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The automotive roller tappet market is characterized by the presence of well-diversified international, regional, and local players. The market is quite competitive as local and regional vendors in the market increasingly focus on offering cost-effective roller tappets that have limited functionalities. Local vendors are finding it difficult to compete against international players in terms of quality and variety. A large number of international vendors are increasingly taking efforts to expand their global presence and are also focusing on increasing the production rate to generate more revenues.

Key vendors in this market are -

  • MPCams
  • Crower Cams & Equipment
  • Lunati
  • SM Motorenteile
  • Schaeffler
  • NSK

Other prominent vendors in the market include Jinan, Rane Engine Valve, Wuxi Xizhou, Yuhuan Huiyu, Morel Lifters, ISKY Cams, Johnson lifters, and OTICS USA.

Segmentation by product type and analysis of the automotive roller tappets market

  • Low-torque roller tappets
  • Mechanical roller tappets
  • Hydraulic roller tappets

A mechanical roller tappet comprises a cylindrical rod that has a roller at one end of the tappet. When the tappet is placed in between the cam lobe and push rod, it maintains a small gap on both the ends. When the cam lobe comes in contact with the tappet, the tappet pushes the rod to either open or close the valve. According to this market research report, the automotive mechanical roller tappet segment contributed the majority of shares during 2016. The demand for mechanical roller tappet will continue to increase during the estimated period and this will mainly account to their simple design.

Segmentation by geography and analysis of the automotive roller tappets market

The tappet is a valve lifter, a component that runs on the camshaft. Automotive roller tappets can accelerate quickly and provide more velocity than a flat tappet since the friction of a roller tappet is be comparatively lower than the flat tappet. In addition, a roller lifter can tolerate a small degree of misalignment in the position and angle of the tappet about its respective lifter.
