Automotive Front End Modules (FEMs) are typically multi piece assemblies with integrated number of components. These components are forward lighting, radiators & cooling fans, grille-opening reinforcement (GOR) panels, air conditioning (A/C) condensers, crumple zones, hood latches, bumpers and electronics & wiring. The front end module (FEM) is a complex assembly with very high demands on functionality, technology & fitting accuracy. The front end module (FEM) is beneficial for vehicle makers and the consumers and is essentially useful for the ergonomic aspects of the whole assembly process. The beneficial aspects of front end modules (FEM) for auto makers are reduction in cost of materials, assembly time reduction, length reduction for assembly line, supply chain simplification and tooling cost reduction.

Automotive Front End Module Market Dynamics

The global automotive front end module (FEM) market is showing significant growth and profitability due to increase in production of passenger and heavy duty vehicles in regions like North America, Western Europe and Asia pacific. The unstable economic, political and social conditions in South America, Eastern Europe and Middle East will be the key element in the upcoming years for uncertain automotive industry market performance in the respective areas. Global front end module (FEM) market is primarily driven by small and heavy vehicle production, demand for front end module (FEM) modularization and light weight front end modules (FEMs) and concerns over driver and passenger safety. The global automotive front end module (FEM) market is expected to show the growth in future with single digit CAGR with emerging economies expected to act as the new blossoming markets due to stagnation of the conventional markets.

Automotive Front End Module Market: Regional Outlook

The global market for automotive front end module (FEM) is scattered and uneven. North America, Western Europe and Asia pacific are the key market regions whereas South America and Eastern Europe are the new emerging markets. In North America automobile demand and in turn automotive front end module (FEM) demand in this region is triggered by the low fuel rates and interest rates. The growth in demand is also expected due to reach in average car age. Western Europe, due to heavy R&D activities for fuel efficiency and government regulations for environmental safety, is expected to witness the moderate growth for automotive front end module (FEM) in upcoming years. This region is expected to witness the demand stagnancy because of the market maturity.  Presently China is the largest market for automotives owing to the large population, spending power of consumer, vast infrastructure development and initiatives of joint ventures between key market players of automobile industry and local manufacturers. Apart from India South Korea, Japan are also gaining the importance owing to the presence of big players of automobile industry like Nissan.  This region is expected to show double digit CAGR for the automotive front end module (FEM) market. However due to increasing pollution level because of the increased production in this region, governments are adopting high fuel efficiency vehicles.

Automotive Front End Module Market: Key Market Players
