Future Market Insights
Shifting focus of manufacturers from turbochargers to superchargers utilizing more advanced technologies owing to meet increasingly stringent emission regulations, higher vehicle performance which could herald new era of downsized engines are anticipated to be the responsible factors for automotive supercharger market growth over the forecast period. From the first actually tested engine supercharger in 1878 to first series produced cars Mercedes 6/25/40 hp and 10/40/65 hp in 1921, superchargers were used to increase the power output of an engine through allowing more fuel to be burned and more work per cycle. Power for the unit can be mechanically generated by a gear, belt, chain, or shaft connected to engine’s aircraft to enhance volumetric efficiency and to withstand higher forces. Positive displacement and dynamic compressors are the two major type of superchargers in use by method of compression, where former delivering constant pressure increase at all engine speeds, while the latter delivers increasing pressure with increasing speed. Centrifugal superchargers being more efficient (70 – 85%) than positive displacement pumps are more in demand and popular. Twin charging technique which is a combination of engine – driven supercharger and exhaust – driven turbocharger can mitigate the weaknesses of other techniques to increase power and efficiency of an engine. Increase in thermal load on engine parts and tendency to burn piston crown, edges, and seat of exhaust valves due to increased heat transfer and generation are some of the challenges faced by automotive superchargers.
Automotive Supercharger Market: Dynamics:
Factors such as ability to reach full-boost pressure instantaneously and better throttle response are estimated to enhance the growth of global automotive supercharger market during the forecast period. Furthermore, increase in engine’s power output without increasing fuel consumption, and increase in automotive production is further expected to fuel the growth of automotive supercharger market over the next decade. Moreover, popularity of turbochargers than superchargers among auto manufacturers are projected to hamper the automotive supercharger market owing to better power and efficiency of turbochargers. This is due to the fact that unlike superchargers, turbochargers use kinetic and potential energy of exhaust gases to drive the compressor, and not placing any direct mechanical load on the engine. However, principal disadvantages of turbochargers such as inefficiencies of turbine versus direct – drive, heat soak of the intake air, and back pressure are completely eliminated in supercharging technique which is anticipated to enhance the automotive supercharger market growth.
