Automotive engine encapsulation is a process in which the engine of the vehicle is covered with a shield. This creates a thermoplastic sandwich shield which helps isolate the engine noise and enhances the thermal efficiency of the vehicle. It retains the heat of the engine within the compartment to enhance efficiency and perform of the engines by allowing lubricants and oils to perform at their best. The engine encapsulation increases probability for high initial oil temperature at next engine start.
Demand for automotive engine encapsulation is expected to increase during the forecast period owing to its numerous advantages such as less CO2 emission from vehicles and reduction in airborne noise. Engine encapsulation was earlier provide only in luxury vehicles; however, this addition is now penetrating in the lower segment vehicles in order to meet the stringent noise emission norms. Engine encapsulation enhances the fuel economy of the vehicle by providing higher initial temperature to the engine and oils & lubricants and thus, manufacturers are providing this addition in most of their vehicles. Rising preference for electric vehicles is expected to restrain the automotive engine encapsulation market owing to the lack of conventional engines in electric vehicles.
The automotive engine encapsulation market can be segmented based on fuel, shield mounting, material, sales channel, vehicle, and region. In terms of fuel, gasoline engines are anticipated to hold a major share of the automotive engine encapsulation market owing to higher production of the gasoline engines across the world. Diesel engines produce higher polluting contents such as NOx (nitrogen oxides); therefore most countries have restricted the production of diesel engines.
Based on shield mounting, the body mounted segment is anticipated to expand significant pace during the forecast period owing to its simple structure and its compatibility with most of the vehicles. Most of the mid and luxury segment passenger vehicles are equipped with body mounted encapsulation, hence the segment is likely to account for a major share of the automotive engine encapsulation market.
In terms of material, the carbon fiber segment is expected to expand at a rapid rate during the forecast period. Manufacturers prefer carbon fiber over other materials, as it is light in weight and has high temperature resistance. Furthermore, most sports cars and high-end vehicles have engine encapsulation made from carbon fiber.
Based on vehicle, the passenger vehicle segment is anticipated to dominate the automotive engine encapsulation market as most engine are encapsulated in passenger vehicles, whereas only a few of the luxury commercial vehicles are equipped with engine encapsulation structures. Higher production of passenger vehicles as compared to commercial vehicles across the globe is another major factor propelling the automotive engine encapsulation market.
In terms of region, Asia Pacific is expected to account for a dominant share of the market by 2026, followed by Europe. High production of vehicles in Asia Pacific is a key factor responsible for the expansion of the global engine encapsulation market. High production of luxury and sports cars in Europe is propelling the automotive engine encapsulation market in the region.
Key players in global automotive engine encapsulation market include Continental AG, Röchling Group, TROCELLEN AUTOMOTIVE, Autoneum, and Charlotte Baur Formschaumtechnik GmbH.
