Automotive pistons are metal piece, tubular in shape which provides mechanical energy by moving up and down in engine cylinder which is necessary to drive shaft and in turn the vehicle wheels. A piston should have low weight, resistant to gas pressure, prevent wear, disperses heat of combustion and seal gas(from top) and oil (from bottom).Steel was extensively used till aluminium, a lightweight metal and its alloys are used as lightweight aluminium pistons. Steel pistons are used where there is high stress involved while lightweight aluminium pistons are preferred over steel owing to its light weight, ease for mass production and better management of heat of combustion. Steel pistons are witnessing downgrade because of low fuel economy (heavy), hard material making it hard to fit with machine and restraints in mass production due to proper infrastructure unavailability. Increased vehicle production, market preference for the lightweight vehicles and fuel economy for the vehicle are some of the vital regions to drive the global demand for the lightweight aluminium pistons.
Lightweight Aluminium Pistons Market Dynamics
The global market for lightweight aluminium pistons is growing owing to the rising sales of automobiles. The stakeholders of the automobile industry are focusing on the lightweight vehicles for better fuel efficiency in turn increasing the market demand for the lightweight aluminium pistons market. Abundant availability of raw material and mass production facilities for lightweight aluminium pistons are also driving the market demand for the global lightweight aluminium piston market. Because of the rising prices of the crude oil and environmental awareness, automobile industry is investing more and more to attain the fuel efficiency and thus increasing the demand for aluminium lightweight pistons. The major restraint for lightweight aluminium piston market is the market penetration by electric vehicles. Automobile industry stakeholders are implementing the new technologies for the engine downsizing. They are reducing the number of cylinders to achieve so and thus in turn it could act as a major restraint for the lightweight aluminium piston market in near future.
