An automotive electric water pump is a type of water pump used in a vehicle's cooling system. It is powered by electricity, unlike its traditional counterparts, which are driven by the mechanical power of the engine itself. Regardless of its power source, the main function of the water pump is to circulate coolant through the engine to maintain optimal operating temperature. It is driven by the vehicle's electrical system, and its speed can be controlled independently of engine speed, facilitating more accurate control of engine cooling to improve fuel efficiency and performance and reduce emissions. As a result, these pumps find extensive applications in modern vehicles, especially in hybrid and electric vehicles (EVs), where energy efficiency is a key concern.
The rising production and sales of high-performance vehicles, coupled with the increasing electrification of various automotive systems, will stimulate the growth of the market during the forecast period. Since it is not directly connected to the engine, the pump can continue to operate and cool the engine even when the engine is not running, or the vehicle has been turned off, making them beneficial in preventing engine overheating, particularly in high-performance vehicles or in hot climates. In addition, the surging popularity of hybrid and electric vehicles owing to the elevating environmental concerns among the masses is fueling the expansion of the market. Moreover, the emerging trend of downsizing vehicle engines, various technological innovations by automakers, and stringent government regulations are other major factors contributing to the growth of the market.

Automotive Electric Water Pump Industry Segmentation:
IMARC Group provides an analysis of the key trends in each segment of the global automotive electric water pump market report, along with forecasts at the global, regional, and country levels from 2023-2028. Our report has categorized the market based on vehicle type, pump type, application, and sales channel.
Breakup by Vehicle Type:
- Passenger Car
- Commercial Vehicle
- Electric Vehicle
Passenger cars dominate the market, accounting for the majority of the market share
The report has provided a detailed breakup and analysis of the market based on the vehicle type. This includes passenger car, commercial vehicle, and electric vehicle. According to the report, passenger car represented the largest segment.
Passenger cars are multi-track vehicles used for passenger or public road transportation. These vehicles represent the largest segment of the automotive market in terms of production volume. As a result, the demand for components, such as electric water pumps, is higher for passenger cars compared to other types of vehicles. Furthermore, the growing trend of vehicle electrification is accelerating the adoption of electric and hybrid passenger cars, which is driving the expansion of this segment. Besides this, there is a surge in consumer demand for fuel-efficient, reliable, and environmentally friendly vehicles. Since these pumps contribute to these factors, making them an attractive feature in passenger cars, evolving consumer preferences are fueling the segment growth.
Breakup by Pump Type:
12V are the most popular type
A detailed breakup and analysis of the market based on the pump type has also been provided in the report. This includes 12V and 24V. According to the report, 12 V accounted for the largest market share.
In most conventional vehicles, the automotive electrical system, ranging from the lighting to its control systems, operates at 12 volts. Therefore, 12V water pumps can be easily integrated into existing electrical systems without requiring additional converters or complicated wiring setups. Due to their broad compatibility, 12V systems are widely used across a vast range of vehicles, including passenger cars, light commercial vehicles, and certain types of heavy-duty vehicles. The cost-effectiveness, readily available parts, and ease of replacement offered by 12V pumps are fueling the growth of this segment. Since these electric water pumps can be a convenient drop-in replacement for traditional engine-driven water pumps, they can simplify the process of switching to an electric pump, especially in the aftermarket. Along with this, the expanding aftermarket vehicle fleet is also catalyzing the growth of the 12V segment.
Breakup by Application:
Turbocharger represent the largest application segment
The report has provided a detailed breakup and analysis of the market based on the application. This includes engine, turbocharger, battery, and others. According to the report, turbocharger represented the largest segment.
A turbocharger is a device used to enhance the power output of an engine by forcing extra air into the combustion chamber, generating a lot of heat in the process. These pumps are employed in turbocharger systems to improve cooling and performance. The widespread use of turbochargers in modern vehicles to increase power output while maintaining fuel efficiency is strengthening the demand for effective cooling systems, such as electric water pumps. Since electric water pumps continue to circulate coolant and dissipate heat from the turbocharger even when the engine is turned off, especially after high-load driving, they are widely deployed to enhance the performance and longevity of turbochargers. In addition, the precise control over coolant flow offered by electric water pumps compared to conventional, engine-driven water pumps is propelling the growth of this segment.
Breakup by Sales Channel:
OEMs hold the largest share in the market
