An automotive hose is a hollow tube, used for the transfer of fluids from one automotive part to another. These flexible tubes can be manufactured using various materials, such as metal, plastic, or rubber, depending on the applications of automotive hoses. Automotive hoses are commonly used for carrying fluids, including coolants, fuel, windshield washer fluids, etc., and these applications are mainly aimed at various operations such as lubrication and cooling.
Automotive Hoses Market Dynamics
Ever-expanding Vehicle Parc with Increased Automotive Production and Sales will Boost Market Growth
During the period 2007-2017, the global production of passenger cars increased from over 53.2 million to nearly 73.5 million, and the global sales of passenger cars increased from 51 million to 71 million, according to statistics published by the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA). With a significant rise in disposable income of consumers in developing countries, and developments in transportation infrastructure, the automotive sector is likely to witness steady growth in the future.
Growth of the automotive industry is spurring growth in automotive parts production. As automotive hose is an important automotive component, the rapidly expanding global vehicle parc is expected to provide a boost to growth of the market in the future.
Growing Adoption of Turbochargers will Trigger Demand for Automotive Hoses
With the global automotive industry gaining momentum, turbochargers have gained their popularity among commercial vehicle manufacturers. On account of various advantages of incorporating turbocharger in vehicles, such as improved fuel efficiency, power output, and engine performance, turbocharger sales have surged in the past few years. As turbochargers are one of the leading applications of automotive hoses, a substantial rise in the production and sales of turbochargers is expected to complement growth of the automotive hoses market in the coming future.
Automotive Hoses Market: Competitive Landscape
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.
