Global Automotive Tappets Market to Reach US$ 12.6 Billion by 2032, Stimulated by Rising Demand for Automobiles

August 29, 2023 | Automotive Industry

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Automotive Tappets Market Report by Product (Roller Tappets, Flat Tappets), Engine (<4 Cylinders Engine, 4–6 Cylinders Engine, >6 Cylinders Engine), Vehicle Type (Heavy Commercial Vehicles, Light Duty Vehicles), End-User (Economic Passenger Cars, Luxury Passenger Cars, Mid-Priced Passenger Cars), Distribution Channel (OEM, Aftermarket), and Region 2024-2032,” the global automotive tappets market size reached US$ 9.1 Billion in 2023. Automotive tappets are essential components in the internal combustion engines of vehicles. They play a crucial role in the valve train system, which controls the opening and closing of intake and exhaust valves. They are typically small cylindrical parts that sit between the camshaft lobes and the engine's valves. As the camshaft rotates, its lobes lift the tappets, which, in turn, push against the valves, allowing fuel-air mixture intake and exhaust gas expulsion in synchronization with the engine's cycle. These components are usually manufactured from materials with high wear resistance, such as hardened steel and ceramics. Their design and manufacturing precision are critical to ensuring smooth operation and minimizing friction within the engine, enhancing performance, and prolonging engine life.

Global Automotive Tappets Market Trends:

Significant growth in the automobile industry is driving the global market. As the automotive industry expands to meet rising consumer demand, the demand for engine components, including tappets, also increases. Moreover, the introduction of stringent emission norms and the quest for better fuel efficiency are compelling automotive manufacturers to optimize engine performance, further propelling the need for high-quality tappets. Besides, continual advancements in material science and manufacturing processes have led to the development of advanced tappets that offer enhanced durability, reduced friction, and improved performance. Automotive companies are increasingly adopting these technologically superior tappets to achieve better engine efficiency and comply with environmental regulations, thus providing a boost to the market. Furthermore, the growing demand for electric Vehicles is also supporting the market since EVs use electric motors, eliminating the need for traditional tappets. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 12.6 Billion by 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 3.5% during 2024-2032.
