Automotive Exhaust Systems Market Size 2021 to 2027

Growth Factors:

The demand for automotive exhaust systems is directly dependent on automotive production and sales units. Thus, the increasing sales of passenger cars and commercial vehicles across developed and emerging economies are driving the demand for automotive exhaust systems globally. Moreover, stringent government standards associated with carbon emissions are expected to drive the market over the forecast period as gasoline and diesel engines emit toxic gases and particles that are hazardous to the environment.

Stringent government regulations associated with vehicle emissions coupled with the increasing penetration of after-treatment devices are anticipated to drive the demand for automotive exhaust systems. Moreover, the increasing sales of passenger cars and commercial vehicles along with the growing demand for lightweight emission systems are expected to create significant opportunities for players operating across the value chain of the market.

Automotive OEMs are working on several aspects, such as new and lightweight materials, drivetrain (engine/transmission) efficiency, and aerodynamic design, to reduce the vehicular weight. Conventional exhaust systems and their components are manufactured using materials such as stainless steel, cast iron, and mild steel/carbon steel. However, several automotive OEMs, exhaust system manufacturers, and other companies are working to provide lightweight products made from composite metals with high-temperature resistance. For instance, Tenneco Inc. offers lightweight compact systems and lightweight after-treatment and dosing systems to improve the fuel economy and thermal management of the exhaust system and overall vehicle.
