Global Automotive Tappets Market to Grow at 4.18% During 2022-2027, Bolstered by Increasing Production of Automobiles

Published on Oct 15, 2021

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Automotive Tappets Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the global automotive tappets market reached a value of US$ 8.5 Billion in 2021. An automotive tappet, also known as a cam follower or valve lifter, is a small automotive component installed between the camshaft lobe and the tappet lifting mechanism. The main parts of a tappet include a plunger cavity and spring, compression chamber and barrel, non-return valve, and plunger. They help in transferring motion from one part of the machine to another, particularly in internal-combustion engines. In recent years, the demand for automotive tappets has gained traction as they improve the efficiency, power output, performance and revolution per minute (RPM) of the vehicles.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Automotive Tappets Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the increasing demand for and production of automobiles across the globe. In addition, the growing inclination of consumers toward high-efficiency vehicles has prompted manufacturers to launch innovative and improved automotive components in the market. These innovations also include the introduction of hydraulic tappets, which do not require servicing throughout the lifecycle of the engine. Furthermore, automotive tappets are employed in racing cars to function with proper coordination and accurate timing without affecting the engine. Besides this, the inflating manufacturing and labor costs have encouraged roller tappet producers based in the US and Europe to shift their operations to developing countries. On account of these factors, IMARC Group expects the market to grow at a CAGR of 4.18% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
