How Growing Demand of Automobile Triggering the Demand?

Global automotive sales have been strong in recent years, with the United States and China setting the pace in terms of both sales and manufacturing. As the United States' economy gradually improves, the country's automotive sector accelerates, particularly in the auto components vertical.

China, on the other hand, is entering a maturation era in which it will be more sensitive to macroeconomic effects. Brazil, Mexico, and India are among the emerging markets being studied.

Furthermore, the expansion of these countries' economies has attracted a number of globally recognized car manufacturers. In these countries, the demand for vehicles, both passenger and commercial, has skyrocketed.

Furthermore, rising automobile manufacturing remains a major driving force in the global automotive car radiators market. Car radiator manufacturers are increasing manufacturing efficiency and cutting costs by using novel raw material combinations.

How Increasing Adoption of Electric/ Hybrid Vehicles Expected to Strengthen the Global Sales of Radiators in Car Radiator Industry?

The global automotive industry is shifting towards the development of more fuel efficient as well as emission free vehicles. As a result, the global market has witnessed a high surge in the production of electric vehicles and hybrid vehicles and this trend is expected to strengthen in the coming years.

Further, similar to the conventional internal combustion engine, the hybrid or electric vehicles also need external cooling to avoid overheating of motors, batteries and other components. The effective cooling of the components in hybrid cars often require multilayer radiator systems with advanced coolant and sometime multiple radiators for cooling the internal combustion engine and battery and motors separately.

The increasing adoption of radiators pertaining to increase in automobile manufacturing is expected to drive the global car radiator market.

High Service Life of Radiator System Likely to Drive the Demand

The technological advancements in manufacturing technology and material science have made radiators more reliable and their service life has increased. Generally, the radiator assembly is composed of a heat exchanger, tanks, and a cooling fan which act as functioning components. Amongst these, the cooling fan is subjected to frequent failures and hence it remains the only component in the whole assembly that requires to be replaced.

Moreover, the heat exchanger system is generally changed when it is corroded heavily or damaged. In general, the service life of the radiator systems ranges about ten years subject to proper operation and regular maintenance. The high maintenance-free and service life of the modern radiator system is expected to act as a restraint for the new sales in aftermarket.
