Friday, April 29th, 2016 - Future Market Insights

In recent past, additional potential gain has been evaluated in the global automotive market, this is due to increased surge in demand for high performance, fuel efficient, low emission and technologically advanced modern vehicles. The automotive component market growth goes proportional with the global automotive production trends. Various valve timing technologies today, avail engines to provide fuel efficiency and reduce emissions, making today vehicles more environment friendly. Timing gear is toothed wheel that rotates and transfers motion of crankshaft to camshaft, which in end controls the opening and closing of inlet and exhaust valve. The timing gear is connected by chain or belt to the crankshaft at one end and camshaft at another end. The proper functioning of an engine requires proper functioning of timing gear, as few degrees lag can affect functioning of engine. Thus an engine must be properly timed.  

The timing gear are subjected to high customization in design and dimensions as per engine requirements for various applications. Various factors such as implementation of Euro VI emission norm by various international bodies is pushing manufacturers on developing new valve timing related technologies, this makes timing gear market growth opportunistic. Recently, BorgWarner announced to expand its engine timing business in Korea and supply technology to Hyundai and Kia vehicles 

Timing gear dimension and design vary from engine to engine, for example timing gear construction will be different for an inline engine as compared to a V-cylinder engine. The timing gear market is driven by new vehicle production, replacement and engine customization demands. The replacement and demands from engine customization falls under the aftermarket segment. The demand of timing gear for new vehicles is comparatively higher than replacement demands.

Timing Gear Market: Drivers & Restraints

The growing global automobile production and requirements for modern engines tends to increase demand for timing gears. Further, stringent emission standards implemented across the globe such as recent Euro VI rise demands for fuel efficient engines with low emission levels. Further, replacement demands also drives the global timing gear Market. However, high replacement cost and development of new technologies such as camless engine may act as the restraint to market growth.
