Overview of the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system market in commercial vehicles
According to the market research analysts at Technavio, the global exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system market in commercial vehicles is anticipated to witness impressive growth and will post a CAGR of more than 8% over the forecast period. With the increasing penetration of diesel engines in medium and heavy-duty vehicles, the market for EGR system in commercial vehicles is expected to have a positive outlook in the coming years. Heavy-duty and medium-duty vehicles require huge amounts of torque to transport heavy cargo, which is provided by diesel engines. These engines are installed with EGR technology to maintain control over their nitrogen oxide emission levels. EGR system controls NOx emissions by recirculating the exhaust gas back into the combustion process. This lowers the heat, thereby curbing harmful NOx emissions. Moreover, rising fuel prices have led to an augmented demand for fuel-efficiency in vehicles. The EGR system increases the fuel efficiency of vehicles by engine compression, which will also contribute to this market’s growth over the next four years.
One of the recent trends gaining significant traction in the market is the proliferation of advanced Euro emission standards such as Euro 5 and Euro 6 in emerging countries. Besides the members of the European Union, emerging nations such as Brazil, China, India, and Russia have also adopted Euro emission standards and are expected to regulate them with stricter norms by 2020. However, as far as following the Euro standards is concerned, the developing countries are lagging behind as they are still following the older versions of Euro standards. Highly-polluted countries like India and China looking to implement Euro 5 and Euro 6 emission standards in next few years, which will boost adoption of EGR system in commercial vehicles.
Competitive landscape and key vendors
The global EGR system market in commercial vehicles is highly competitive owing to the presence of limited number of well-established vendors. The competitive environemnt is expected to intensify with advances in technology and government regulations. OEMs are expected to enter long-term collaborations with EGR vendors as the quality of materials used and the designs that are crucial factors in decreasing exhaust back pressure and cost are unique for each vendor.
