When the gas pedal is suddenly lifted, the throttle plate closes. Thus a rush of air heads into the engine, and subsequently into the turbo due to the closed throttle plate. This causes a phenomenon known as compressor surge. A blow off valve is a vacuum actuated valve, which is designed for pressure release in a turbocharged vehicle when the throttle is closed or lifted. The blow off valve helps release the compression surge pressure thereby preventing wheel stalling, lag and improves drivability.
The blow – off valve operates with respect to variability in manifold and atmospheric pressure. When the throttle body closes, the relative manifold pressure drops below the atmospheric pressure which opens the blow – off valve. Mostly all conventional blow – off valves vent to the atmosphere but some adjustable or “hybrid” blow – off valves vent the pressure back to the intake system to be recirculated, which enables in reducing lag substantially while altering gears.
Blow - off valves: Market Drivers and Challenges
Blow – off valves are essential for any turbocharged vehicle, but are the most efficient in race cars, because when the throttle is lifted, the turbo is up to speed along with a boost response. With the present versions of high performance automobiles embracing turbocharger systems, will fuel the demand of blow - off valves.
In the OEM site, primarily the market is said to be governed by the top tier manufacturers who have a contract based supply order modules, whereas the aftermarket consists of plethora of tier-2 manufacturers and regional/local based players as well. There are very few universal fit blow – off valves available in the market, which drives customers to buy custom blow – off with respect to their vehicle’s make, year and model. Although blow off valves find intensive applications in the automobile industry it is also used in water treatment and oil and gas industries.
Blow – off valves are usually added on to high performance vehicle or top end vehicles with turbochargers. The restraints of blow - off valves, therefore also depend on the low drivability of such vehicles on different regions. The high cost of vehicles and blow – off valves hinder the growth of the blow – off valves market.
Environmental regulations against the release of air into the atmosphere in some regions, also hinder the growth of the blow – off valves market. Government policies against excess noise pollution from blow – off valves could lower the sales too.
Impact of COVID-19 on Blow - off valves market
With the subdued growth of the automobile industry before the covid-19 impact, the industry has further faced production slowdown in the present year due to the pandemic. The reduced output production coupled with disruption in component supply chain has been strongly evident in the first half of the fiscal.
However, during in the second quarter of 2020, automobile sales improved as compared to the first with market growth reeling back towards a decent growth rate. The rebound for blow – off valve market growth is likely to incur a considerable time with low to moderate sales of the product in regional markets.
Blow off valves are offered to end customers either directly via OEM or aftermarket. The aftermarket segment occupies a larger portion of blow – off valves sales due to the higher amount of pressure offered in the pressure of the boost. These companies are therefore pursuing better to solidify their brand footprint by enhancing channel efficiency both by offline and online sales.
Blow - off valves: Regional Market Outlook
Countries such as UAE, Germany, Italy and the U.S. are identified to be the prominent regional markets to create significant demand in the blow – off valves market. This can be attributed to the high presence of sports cars and high spending power of people in the mentioned regions.
With the automotive manufacturing hubs concentrated in Japan, Europe and U.S., the prominent regional markets for blow - off valves also happen to be the mentioned regions. High number of drag races in the U.S. are also expected to foster a decent growth for the blow – off valve market.
Blow - off valves Market: Which trend / segment to impact more:
Amongst various different types of applications of blow of valves, the adoption of blow off valves in high performance vehicles is expected to create more incremental opportunities. Blow off valves provide protection against wear and damage to the turbochargers. Although, unnecessary, blow off valves ensure higher reliability and a smooth running engine.
Blow off valves not only make the turbocharger system efficient, but it is also preferred for the sound and the exit vent which adds to the sporty look of the vehicle, which increases the demand of the blow off valves market.
