Automotive Exhaust Emission Control Systems Market to Expand as Stringency of Vehicle Emission Norms Intensifies
The global carbon footprint has been steadily mounting. The CO2 concentration rose from 391 ppm to nearly 480 ppm during the last decade, and the transportation sector contributed nearly 14% to the total carbon emissions. Although the future of e-mobility has just begun to shape up, internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles will be there for the next 2-3 decades before they would be completely replaced with electric vehicles (EVs). This clearly points to the fact that the transportation sector will continue to account for massive CO2 emissions in the near future. The same vehicular emissions are compelling automakers to develop indigenous exhaust emission controlling products, creating a breeding ground for automotive exhaust emission control systems market. With governments and regulatory bodies emphasizing stringent emission norms and sustainable fuel economy of vehicles, automotive exhaust emission control systems are gaining prominence as they ensure reduced emission levels.
Periodic refinement of emission regulations and standards such as The Clean Air Act (CAA), Euro 6, BS 4 and BS 6, and test methods like Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP) and Real Driving Emissions (RDE) will continue to prepare a fertile ground for automotive exhaust emission control systems. Both automakers and consumers would thus be compelled to regularly monitor the exhaust emission controlling systems of their vehicles and replace the same as and when necessary, thereby bolstering the growth of the automotive exhaust emission system market.
Higher Spending Capacity to Favour Automotive Exhaust Emission Control Systems Market Growth
Shifts in consumer lifestyle to achieve more sophistication and the vehicle miles travelled are fairly synchronous. Increasing vehicle demand for long excursions on weekends, rise in daily commutation to work from suburb locations, surge in the spending capacity of consumers in emerging economies on account of the proliferation of service-based industries, are some of the key factors that are looked upon by automakers. New product launches suiting the needs of people and increased vehicle life span are likely to contribute towards creating multiple growth opportunities in the automotive exhaust emission control system market.
COVID-19 Impact on Automotive Exhaust Emission Control Systems Market
The coronavirus outbreak has put immense stress over all the industries, supply chain disruptions being one of the foremost concerns of all industry operators. Automotive component suppliers also faced a prolonged ban on international transportation and logistics. Similarly, raw material suppliers have been facing impediments in supplying to automakers. As a result, automakers confronted increasing overheads and decreasing operating profits that levied financial pressure. The demand in several countries is gradually resurfacing owing to the long stint of pent-up demand, coupled with seasonal demand fluctuations. With the pandemic situation prevailing, there are strong indications of a sizeable population now preferring private conveyance over public transit or shared mobility options. This is likely to create a short window of opportunity for manufacturers to penetrate. However, rising EV penetration will most likely dampen the growth of automotive exhaust emission control systems market in the foreseeable future.
Regionally Biased Vehicle Demand Bolsters Segmental Revenue
An alarming rise in particulate matter and other harmful emissions coupled with increasing prevalence of respiratory disorders especially in urban areas is fuelling the global automotive exhaust emission control systems market. Higher demand for fuel efficiency has been influential in integrating gasoline direct injection (GDI) technique, which has raised emission high particulate pollutants. Gasoline particulate filters (GPF) used with such engines are anticipated to minimize emission and comply with Euro 6 standards. Similarly, gasoline vehicles are expected to deploy three-way catalytic converters (TWC) along with the GPF to suffice the Bharat 6 and Euro 6 standards. Based on regions GPD, TWC and diesel particulate filter (DPF), coupled with diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) find applications in corresponding vehicle models. Whereas, participants in a few regions have been attempting extraction of pollutants through tail pipe emissions just before they escape through selective catalytic reduction (SCR) and lean NOX traps.
European and Asian Countries Remain at Forefront of Automotive Exhaust Emission Control Systems Market
Burgeoning vehicle production during last decade clearly indicates the demand concentration in Asia Pacific. Cheap labour and administrative overheads, and conducive environment continue to attract foreign investors to establish their production bases in the Asian countries. The enactment of favourable regulatory policies in Asian and European economies has aided the market to flourish significantly. Productivity, efficiency, and boom in manufacturing activities have been critical for the business expansion in Asia pacific and European region. Fast-developing Asian countries are reflecting high growth potential for the automotive exhaust emission control systems market.

Under uncertainty, traditional approaches to strategic planning can be downright dangerous. True ambiguity is no basis to forecast the future – degree of risk, the magnitude of circumstances, conditions and consequences are not known or unpredictable. To avoid dangerous binary views of uncertainty; strategic posture, moves and actions through market research is the best bet.Read more
