Recent Strategic moves by players aiming at a competitive edge.

Anticipating the burgeoning growth of the automotive industry and profitable production of automotive parts in emerging Asian economies, the leading automaker - Continental AG announced in May 2018 that it will soon open a new automotive hoses plant in China.

The company is planning to invest around RMB 240 million, which is around 30 million Euros, for producing high-quality automotive hoses for new energy vehicles. The company also announced that it will invest more than 10 million Euros (about 70 million RMB) in another plant for producing high-tech, 3D blow-molded hoses to be used in high-performance turbochargers.

Another leading player in the market - United Flexible - recently announced that it has been acquired by Smiths Group plc - a British engineering company. United Flexible has diversified its product portfolio, which also includes high-temperature hybrid flexible hose assemblies, over the past few years, and now it aims to add new capabilities and expand its customer base with this acquisition.

After acquiring Rapro - a Turkish manufacturer of molded and branched automotive hoses - for expanding its business in the European country, Gates Corporation - an American player in the market - has launched a new product line of premium hydraulic hoses with the new Gates MXT™ family of hoses. The company announced that this new product line of hoses is designed to meet the demands of original equipment manufacturers from various end-use industries, including agriculture and mining.

Semperit AG Holding - a European manufacturer of automotive hoses - has announced the sale of its Italian production facility of hydraulic and industrial hoses to the Italian Matec Group. With this step, the company aims for a Group-wide complexity reduction by selling the facility that no longer meets the production footprint of the company.

Segment wise insights

The metal tubing in hoses is widely opted for due to its high durability over the plastic variant. Longevity is key benefit offered by metal hoses. Unlike plastic hoses, metal ones can handle more stress and temperature. It often gives attractive looks owing to its stainless steel and aluminum composition. Moreover, the metal parts are 100% recyclable which has no impact on the environment.

The metal tubings are also used for several other usages such as metal sheet formation and bars. Plastic is not recyclable which is the major reason for avoiding hoses of plastic. However, rubber hoses are also majorly produced in some regions. Japan is the leading manufacturer of rubber variants in automotive hoses.
