The higher performance expectations from smaller engines to drive the global automotive supercharger market close to USD 11 billion by 2025

Automotive superchargers are advanced devices that pressurize air into the engine which helps to increase the net power supplied to the vehicle. The power of superchargers is achieved from a belt, which is connected to the engine. Superchargers also increase the rotations per minute of an engine by up to 50,000. There are mainly three different types of superchargers, namely, roots type, twin screw, and centrifugal.

The rising production of gasoline engine vehicles due to strict air emission standards and higher sales of high-end vehicles due to increased disposable incomes worldwide are some of the major factors driving the growth of the automotive supercharger market.

The centrifugal supercharging technology is the latest technology in the automotive supercharger market. Hence, the market for this technology is currently low. However, the adoption of centrifugal superchargers by OEMs is increasing at a rapid pace because of the obvious benefits of this technology such as easy installation, smaller size, high efficiency, and low maintenance. Major automotive supercharger players such as Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and Vortech Engineering are now offering several products based on centrifugal supercharging technology.

The supercharger market for automotive is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.27% from 2017 to 2025. The market for automotive superchargers is estimated to be USD 7.26 Billion in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 10.95 Billion by 2025. The key growth drivers of this market are the global measures by OEMs in the direction of engine downsizing, increased demand for high-end vehicles, and increasing norms on fuel efficiency.

The roots supercharger technology is estimated to have the largest market size in the global automotive supercharger market as it is an old and tested technology. However, the centrifugal supercharger technology is gaining momentum in the automotive supercharger market due to its high efficiency, low maintenance, and smaller size.

The electric motor driven segment of the automotive supercharger market is estimated to be the fastest growing segment. The 48-volt electric motor driven superchargers are gaining popularity among OEMs as these superchargers do not consume any power from the vehicle’s engine.

Gasoline engine vehicles segment is estimated to be the largest segment of the automotive supercharger market, by fuel type. Superchargers can boost a vehicle as soon as the vehicle starts moving. Also, superchargers are suitable for a gasoline engine that does not emit a large amount of exhaust gases. With the measures taken worldwide to curb air pollution, the production of diesel engine vehicles is expected to decrease. The resultant increase in gasoline vehicles will further drive the market of automotive superchargers in gasoline engine vehicles.

The automotive supercharger market for passenger cars segment is estimated to be the largest and fastest growing market. This is because superchargers are commonly used in racing cars and sports vehicles that require instantaneous boost as soon as the engine is started. Hence, superchargers are the perfect choice for such vehicles. The growing inclination of consumers towards high-end cars is also contributing to the growth of this segment.  

Automotive Supercharger Market

North America is estimated to dominate the supercharger market for automotive, by volume as well as value. The growth of this market is due to the high enthusiasm for racing cars in this region. Other factors contributing to the growth of the automotive supercharger market in this region are the growing trend of engine downsizing, increasing fuel efficiency norms, and high disposable incomes that have increased the demand for high-end cars. The US is estimated to be the largest and fastest growing market in this region.

A key factor restraining the growth of the automotive supercharger market is the increasing number of air emission norms around the world. These norms are pushing the OEMs to invest in electric vehicles. As electric vehicles do not have a combustion engines, any kind of forced induction technology cannot be utilized in such vehicles. As the production and sales of electric vehicles continue to increase, the market for automotive superchargers is expected to decline. Some of the key market players are Honeywell (US), Eaton (Ireland), Valeo (France), Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (Japan), and Federal-Mogul (US).

Leading automotive supercharger manufacturers and OEMs are catering to the increasing demand for high-speed vehicles, to drive the industry forward

Centrifugal supercharger

The centrifugal superchargers compress the air which is to be supplied to the engine with the help of an impeller. This type of supercharger is similar to that of a turbocharger, except that in a turbocharging it uses the engine exhaust gases, whereas in a centrifugal supercharger it uses a belt driven by the crank pulley to spin the impeller. The major advantage of a centrifugal supercharging is that a considerable quantity of air can be delivered by a relatively small size. However, unlike roots and screw superchargers, centrifugal superchargers are good for high rpm range.

Centrifugal superchargers find highest application in sports cars or supercars due to their compact size, less maintenance and placement with respect to the engine.

Roots supercharger

The roots type supercharging technology is the oldest technology amongst the other supercharging technologies. Roots superchargers are similar to that of an air pump. Thus, unlike centrifugal and screw superchargers which act as a compressor, roots superchargers act more like an air displacer. These superchargers are placed on the top of the engine and they look attractive when seen hanging from the hood. Roots superchargers promise a drastic increase in power at lower RPMs.

Major supercharger manufacturers such as Eaton solely offer roots superchargers.

Twin-screw supercharger

The twin-screw type superchargers are advanced versions of roots superchargers and thus look identical to them from the outside. But, from inside there is a twin-screw design which helps to compress the air flow. The twin screw has a fill side and a discharge side. Thus, when air is moved from the fill side to the discharge end, the air pockets decrease and get squeezed by the rotor lobes and are compressed into the engine. With this technology, the twin-screw superchargers become more efficient, and are a bit expensive than the roots superchargers, because the screw-type rotors require more precision in the manufacturing process. 

Critical questions would be;

  • Since superchargers are mainly seen in high end or racing vehicles? Would targeting of the economic or low-end vehicles a success or a challenge?
  • Will the suppliers continue to explore new avenues for automotive superchargers effectiveness? 
  • Which geographical markets are unexplored in the automotive supercharger market where there is a good growth potential?
