The controlled movement of parts or a controlled application of force is a common requirement in a vehicle. These operations are performed mainly by using electrical machines or diesel and petrol engines as a prime mover. Enclosed fluids (liquids and gases) can also be used as prime movers to provide controlled motion and force to objects or substances that provide both linear as well as rotary motion. In an automotive hydraulics system, which is based on Pascal’s law, a high-magnitude controlled force can also be applied. The major advantage of using an automotive hydraulics system is that a large force can be generated with a smaller force input. Hydraulic systems find wide applications in both on-highway and off-highway vehicles around the globe. The hydraulics system in an on-highway vehicle includes hydraulic brakes, clutches, and suspension, among others; whereas, in off-highway vehicles, the system includes quick attachment, throttle control, hood lift, and spool valve control, among others. These systems are used in on-highway as well as off-highway vehicles owing to various advantages (over another prime mover systems), such as they are easy to control and offer greater accuracy of operation. The global automotive hydraulics system market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.04% from 2017 to 2025, to reach USD 51.37 Billion by 2025.
Currently, the automotive industry is experiencing a shift in technology from the use of mechanical systems to electrical systems. Linear, as well as rotational motions in vehicles, can be achieved using electrical prime movers. The combination of an electrical and mechanical system, known as an electro-mechanical system. Electro-hydraulic cylinders also called as smart cylinders, incorporate servo valves and electronic controls such as transducers to provide rod position feedback; they also incorporate electrically controlled valves to ensure efficient machine operation. Also, by combining hydraulic cylinders and electronics, manufacturers have increased the accuracy, enhanced the functionality, improved the ease-of-use, and controlled the performance of their systems. This has not only expanded the scope of applications (that demand linear and rotating motion) but also has helped stave off competition from alternative technologies such as electric actuators. Considering these advantages, manufacturers can offer integrated hydraulic systems and solutions to differentiate themselves. This differentiation strategy will allow automotive hydraulic system manufacturers to add value by delivering systems or subsystems containing hydraulic and mechatronic components. This integrated offering will also enhance the ability to generate profitable maintenance and aftermarket service revenues. For end users, this will translate into access to systems with a more efficient design and engineering as well as lower overall operational costs and lead times.
In terms of growth, the slave cylinder segment for automotive hydraulics system OE market by component is expected to grow at the highest CAGR followed by the reservoir, hose, and master cylinder segment. The slave cylinder segment is estimated to account for the highest share in the automotive hydraulics system market, following its wide applications in automotive hydraulics system. Asia Pacific is estimated to account for the largest market size in slave cylinder segment. Slave cylinder finds great application in passenger vehicles for hydraulic braking and clutch in Asia Pacific region.
The hydraulic tappets segment is estimated to be the fastest growing market for automotive hydraulics systems by application, followed by hydraulic brakes, hydraulic clutch, and hydraulic suspension. This segment is estimated to experience a stable growth due to engine upsizing by the various automaker in their vehicles. Asia Pacific region is estimated to be the largest market for below 25 t segment increased use of below 25 tons transportation.
The Passenger cars (PCs) segment is estimated to be the fastest growing market for automotive hydraulics systems followed by light commercial vehicles (LCVs) and heavy commercial vehicles (HCVs) segments. Asia Pacific region is estimated to be the largest market for the Passenger cars (PCs) segment followed by North America region.
