DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nov 17, 2020–

The “North America Automotive Hydraulic Actuators Market – Growth, Trends and Forecasts (2020 – 2025)” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

Rising automation and digitalization in the automotive industry are increasing the demand for vehicles with advanced features and connectivity.

The modern passenger vehicle is equipped with several motors to control various applications such as headlight positioning, seat adjustment, grill shutter, HVAC systems, and coolant and refrigerant valves, among others. Actuators play a key role in activating these applications as they convert an electric signal into the required linear and rotary motion to produce the required physical movement.

With advancements in technology, autonomous vehicles are expected to install various actuators to enhance safety and comfort. The automotive actuators market is growing continuously due to the constant growth in production as well as sales of automobiles (passenger cars, LCVs, HCVs, and off-highway vehicles) across the globe. Sensors, software programs, controller hardware, and actuators are considered to be the backbone of the present and future automotive systems.

Key Market Trends

Off-highway vehicle segment is estimated to be the fastest during the forecast period

The off-highway vehicle segment is anticipated to be the fastest in the automotive actuators market. Increasing government investments in infrastructural development, thriving agricultural businesses in developing nations, and the emergence of leased/rent-based equipment are driving the off-highway vehicle market. The traditional role of actuators in off-highway vehicles has involved the application of force to perform tasks. As vehicles become complex, OEMs are accumulating features that naturally involve the use of electronic controls to deliver more complex, optimized, and safer motion.

Increase in Automation Driving Growth

Of all the application types, the throttle actuator involves the conversion of the mechanical force applied on the accelerator pedal, resulting into proportionate throttle control, which involves appropriate opening of the throttle valve, in the engine combustion chamber. The fuel injection actuator involves the opening of the fuel injection port located in the engine, according to the set idle timing of the engine, which helps to inject the fuel into the engine combustion chamber.

The working of this actuator is thus related to the throttle control valve and can be adjusted through the electronic control unit of the automobile. The brake actuator involves conversion of the mechanical force exerted on the brake pedal and conversion of the same into proportionate working of the brake system, which involves friction between either the drums of the drum brake or the brake pads and the disc within the disc brake mechanism.

Competitive Landscape

The key players in global automotive actuators market are Continental AG, Aptiv PLC, Robert Bosch GmbH, Denso Corporation, Hella KGaA Hueck & Co., and Stoneridge Inc., Wabco Holdings Inc., Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, Nidec Corporation, and Sonceboz SA are among others.

The “Germany Automotive Pneumatic Actuators Market – Growth, Trends and Forecasts (2020 – 2025)” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

Germany Automotive Pneumatic Actuator Market is anticipated a register a CAGR of over 4% during the forecast period (2020 – 2025).

The growth of fuel-efficient vehicles and the inclusion of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), majorly braking and throttle systems (like adaptive cruise control (ACC) and autonomous emergency braking features), in new vehicles and existing vehicles, are the major driving factors for the automotive actuator market.

Owing to the rising penetration and replacement rate of the pneumatic actuator with pure electric and electro-pneumatic actuators, the market studied is expected to grow at a slow rate, especially for the passenger car segment.

However, demand for the automotive pneumatic actuator in the commercial vehicle segment is expected to grow due to an increase in production and sales of trucks and semi-trailers globally.

The use of fuel injection actuators and throttle actuators in diesel engine vehicles help comply with the Euro VI standard. The market for actuators for fuel injection that are directly related to diesel engines is expected to grow with the development of advanced diesel engines.

Key Market Trends

Growing Demand for Throttle Actuators

Conventional diesel engines implement sophisticated fuel management systems, such as integrated throttle control units. These engines are popular due to their increased efficiency, enhanced functionality, increased operational safety, and reduced carbon emissions.

Autonomous throttle control actuator is being implemented in the latest 2018 Audi A8 which consists of radar, electronic sensors, and cameras integrated to the actuators to control vehicle speed, without the driver having to pay attention or keep their hands on the wheel.

Advanced throttle actuators provide the ability to integrate control with other vehicle functions. These systems in SUVs allow the engine speed to be monitored for smooth driving over different terrains.

Products, such as the Electronic Throttle Control 12 by Continental, have high performance, low weight in a small package, low leakage, and are capable of turbo applications, due to their high torque.

Failures in throttle actuators systems have occurred, such as accidents reported in cars by Tesla and Toyota due to faulty sensors that may lead to a lack of response from the throttle actuators, due to high resistance to acceleration given by the driver.

Germany to Dominate the Automotive Pneumatic Actuator Market In Europe

Geographically, Germany is leading the global Automotive Pneumatic Actuator Market in Europe. The European region is majorly driven by countries like Germany, France, and Italy.

In Germany, commercial vehicle sales increased from 4.16 million units in 2017 to 4.37 million units in 2018. This increase can be attributed to diesel vehicles meeting the euro 6 emission standards from January 2018, along with the rising demand for commercial vehicles. The increase in demand for commercial vehicles can be attributed to an increase in construction and industrial activity, road freight movement.

Some of the key players in the supply of automotive actuators globally are Denso International,
