Lightweight Aluminium Pistons Market Snapshot (2022 to 2032)

According to Future Market Insights, the global Lightweight Aluminium Pistons market is expected to be valued at US$ 1,588.24 million by 2022 and is further projected to expand at a CAGR of 3.7% between 2022 and 2032. Steel was widely used until the light metal aluminum and its alloys were used for lightweight aluminum pistons. Steel pistons are used where high loads are applied, but lightweight aluminum pistons are preferred over steel due to their light weight, ease of mass production, and better combustion heat management.

Attributes Details
Market Size 2021A US$ 1,712.4 million
Market Size 2022E US$ 1,774.8 million
Market Size 2032F US$ 2,551.8 million
Value CAGR (2022 to 2032) 3.7%

Aluminum pistons are an important part of all pneumatic cylinders, piston pumps, and gas compressors. Lightweight aluminum pistons are used in many vehicles such as heavy commercial vehicles (HCV), motorcycles, passenger cars, light commercial vehicles (LCV), and industrial equipment. Therefore, increasing automobile production is one of the key factors expected to drive the growth of the global lightweight aluminum piston market during the forecast period 2022 to 2032.

Which Factors May Hinder the Lightweight Aluminium Pistons Market Growth?

The biggest constraint on the lightweight aluminum piston market is the market penetration of electric vehicles. Electric vehicles overcome harmful carbon emissions which result in pollution. Automotive industry players are implementing new technologies for engine downsizing. Advanced technologies such as turbochargers and superchargers are also been used to increase the efficiency of engines without affecting the output power of the vehicle engine. As automotive manufacturers are reducing the number of cylinders to achieve this, it could act as a major constraint on the lightweight aluminum piston market in the future.

Which Region hold the prominent share in Lightweight Aluminium Pistons Market?

North America dominates the aluminum piston market in terms of market share. This is due to the demand for lightweight products and increased research and development activities in the region.

In the Asia-Pacific region, China, Japan, and South Korea are gaining the largest share due to the presence of major auto industry players, and are expected to grow significantly in demand. A growing economy, changing lifestyles due to rising disposable income, and a preference for lighter-weight vehicles due to fuel efficiency are some of the key drivers for the expected growth of the lightweight aluminum piston market in the region.
