Global Automotive Exhaust Manifold Market 2013-2021 Outlook Compared to 2022-2026 Forecast

The demand for exhaust manifolds is growing and the acceptance of advance machine components has increased their popularity among end users. Automotive exhaust manifolds are noted for their long life and toughness. The use of sophisticated material technology in automotive exhaust manifolds increases their load capacity while also improving their strength and resilience to corrosion and high temperatures.

Exhaust manifolds have strong corrosion resistance and high temperature result in increased productivity which will drive the market for automotive exhaust manifolds in the approaching year.

Demand outlook for exhaust manifold between 2013 and 2021 remains 3.4% as the pandemic crisis has impacted the market. The market growth has been hampered by rising fuel prices in the automobile industry and rising desire for alternatives which has resulted in a decrease in demand in many applications.

How demand for Exhaust Manifold in Automotive Industry Bolstering the Overall Market Growth?

Many materials such as super alloys and high stainless steel are light in weight and have great strength and load capacity with the development of improved material technology. This is an important factor that will drive the automotive exhaust manifold market forward. Besides, strong corrosion and high temperature resistance results in greater productivity in automotive exhaust manifolds.

Paying attention to changes in the aftermarket replacement is also important for the vehicle's longevity and performance as well as the health and safety of the driver.

How Higher Fuel Prices will Create an Impact the Market Growth of Exhaust Manifold?

The prices for gasoline and diesel will be exponential in the future as crude oil stocks decline, resulting in increased demand, paving the door for the emergence of cars powered by alternative energy sources.

Furthermore, fuel prices and the use of petroleum products as fuel in the automotive industry are steadily rising. Manufacturers and governments are promoting alternative fuel sources vehicles such as hybrid and electric vehicles which are far more fuel efficient than conventional automobiles in order to reduce global consumption.

This is expected to act as a barrier to the growth of the automotive exhaust manifold market. Because resources are scarce and demand is excessive, it is imperative that we change our focus to alternatives that are more sustainable. Hence increasing fuel prices has the adverse impact on the manifold market as well as global economy.

What was the Impact of the COVID-19 Crisis on the Global Automotive Exhaust Manifold Market?

Emegence of COVID in 2020 has had a massive impact on the global economy.

Which Material Type Demand is on Rise?

The cast iron exhaust manifold is projected to create an absolute dollar opportunity of more than US$ 880 Mn during the period of 2022 to 2026. The high demand for cast iron exhasust manifold is due to the low cost and longer durability of cast iron manifold, which makes it the preferred choice among manufacturers.

The necessity for high accuracy as well as higher productivity component along with an increase in demand of automotive will boost up the expansion of the global automotive exhaust manifold market, specifically the cast iron segment.

Why there is High Demand for Automotive Exhaust Manifold from Passenger Car segment?

The passenger car segment is projected to create an absolute dollar opportunity of more than US$ 1,275.5 Mn during the period of 2022 to 2026. With the growing population and rising purchasing power the demand for passenger cars is increasing across the globe. In 2019, the global passenger car production was about 67 million units which dropped to about 56 million in 2020 due to impact of COVID-19.

Passenger car production accounts for more than 70% of the total vehicle production which makes it a prominent market for exhaust manifolds. This factor elevates the importance of passenger cars, which is expected to increase demand for exhaust manifolds in the global market.

Competitive Landscape

Over the last several years, there has been an increase in the number of acquisitions and expansion operations to strengthen exhaust manifold supplies. Several major firms are also working to improve the efficiency of exhaust manifolds for different types of vehicles. In the worldwide businesses, numerous manufacturers have emerged, particularly in India and China.

For Instance,

  • In October 2018, the Faurecia S.A. entered into a joint venture with Liuzhou Wuling Automotive Industry Co., Ltd. (China’s leading automotive component manufacturing company) for the manufacturing of all emissions control system products.)
  • In March 2017, the Faurecia S.A opened a new manufacturing facility in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The new plant will manufacture all products related to emissions control systems. The company invested around $4 million to begin operations at the 137,500 square foot facility.
