A valve train is an automated system that regulates working of valves and serves as crucial part of vehicle’s internal combustion engine cylinder. In valve train along with valve there is sequence of components including rocker arms, pushrods, lifters and camshaft that transfers motion throughout the assembly. Valve train opening/closing and duration as well as structure of the valve train is compelling factor in evaluating the performance of a vehicle’s engine as it control and maintains the flow of exhaust gases and fuel in and out of the cylinder at any given point of time. Appropriate blend of air and fuel is mandatory as it helps engine to work efficiently, attain proper mileage and reduce emissions. Number of new materials are being used and tested to attain upgraded overall performance of vehicles.
Automotive valve train market is driven by factors such as need for reducing the impact of vehicular carbon emission footprint and enhanced fuel efficiency. Furthermore, rising preference and desire for high-performance vehicles drives the market at outrageous pace. High performance vehicles provide increased power and torque levels and are increasingly used for touring. These vehicles need more cylinders to obtain essential power and torque. The rise in number of cylinders has led to increased use of extra components in valve train system to back up the functioning of the systems which ultimately results in farther growth of automotive valve train market. Moreover, many manufacturers are showing interest in engine downsizing by investing large amount in conducting research and development therefore influencing the growth of the market.
Automotive Valvetrain Market
World automotive valve train market has been segmented majorly on the basis product and applications. On the basis of product, the market is segmented into: lower installations, middle installation, overhead installations, side installations and upper installation.
