Global Automotive Active Purge Pump Market Size, Share, Forecast Report, 2020-2027
An active purge pump is an electromechanical device used to reduce the hydrocarbon evaporative emissions from the vehicle. It actuates the flow of fuel vapors from an evaporative emission canister and controls the purge flow. An active purge pump uses motor, vapor canister and valve assembly to provide pressurized air to the engine, removing fuel vapor from the canister. Continental AG has introduced active purge pump, which is a part of evaporative fuel processing system to overcome stringent hydrocarbon evaporation norms and legislation across the globe. An automotive active purge pump has various functions such as hydrocarbon evaporative leak detection, air pressure detection, and hose off emission detection. The stringent regulations regarding emissions would raise the demand for active purge pumps.
Automotive active purge pump market has been witnessing remarkable growth; expected to grow with the CAGR of ~11%. The increase in demand for fuel-efficient vehicles also increases the demand for active purge pump systems. Rapid increase in the passenger car sales worldwide, increase in demand to reduce hydrocarbon emissions and stringent environment regulations increase the demand for the market.
The increase in demand for automotive active purge pump will create opportunities for the new entrants in the market due to low investment for active purge manufacturing unit. However, innovation and development regarding the hydrocarbon emission products is the major challenge for the manufacturers. However, the increase in demand for battery-operated electric vehicles and the high prices of active purge pumps may hamper the market growth.
