Automotive Engine Encapsulation
Market Size By Product Type (Body Mounted, Engine Mounted), By Vehicle (Passenger Cars, Commercial Vehicle), By Material (Polypropylene, Polyurethane, Carbon Fiber) By Sales Channel (OEM, Aftermarket), Industry Analysis Report, Regional Outlook, Application Growth Potential, Price Trends, Competitive Market Share & Forecast, 2021 - 2027.
The automotive engine encapsulation market is poised to accumulate noteworthy gains in the coming years due to increasing demand for polyurethane material because of its high thermal and chemical resistance properties, rising adoption of body-mounted engines, and increasing automotive production.
Strict regulations on carbon dioxide emissions as well as stringent acoustic targets are creating the need for advanced engine bay solutions across the automotive sector. These solutions must be cost effective as well as lightweight.
In this regard, engine encapsulation is considered to be one of the most effective solutions, meeting these aspects by encapsulant the engine in essentially a shell. Engine encapsulations are basically made of Trocellen PP foam, and are widely used as acoustic absorbers, typically in the engine compartment.
The automotive engine encapsulation market is bifurcated in terms of vehicle type, product, material, sales channel, and regional landscape.
With respect to product, the automotive engine encapsulation market is classified into engine mounted and body mounted. Among these, body mounted is estimated to grow at a rate of 4% over the projected timeframe. Rising need for the better insulation, NVH system in the engine bay as well as new rules to curb the carbon emission across regions including North America, Asia Pacific and Europe will drive demand for the automotive engine encapsulation, which is further expected to positively impact the body mounted engine encapsulation segment. Generally absorbent materials are widely used for body-mounted engines.
In terms of material, the overall market is segmented into carbon fiber, polyurethane, polypropylene, and others. Here, polyurethane material segment will be holding substantial share of around 30% in the global market over the projected time period.
The material offers extremely high-temperature insulation as well as thermal performance with ease of molding, these factors are thus likely to drive the demand for polyurethane materials. In comparison to other materials such as rubber, polyurethane is less prone to microbiological attack as well as weathering. In addition, glass encapsulation comprising of polyurethane results in a seal that is of high-quality in comparison to simple glass seal.
From a regional frame of reference, Middle East & Africa will be accounting for lower share of the overall automotive engine encapsulation market. Logistical issues as well as higher dependency on raw materials supply from the European countries like Germany, China are some of the major reasons behind low penetration of automotive engine encapsulation market in MEA.
However, the increasing automotive production coupled with increasing luxury passenger cars sales each year will surge the demand for automotive engine encapsulation in the aftermarket by the end of analysis time period.
