Global Turbocharger Market was valued at $10.2 billion in 2016, and is projected to reach $24.04 billion by 2024, having a CAGR of 11.6% during the forecast period of 2017 to 2024.

Turbocharger or turbo is a turbine driven forced induction machine that improves an internal combustion engines’ efficiency and power output by adding extra air into the combustion chamber. This improvement over a naturally aspirated engine's output are observed because the turbine can force more air, and thus proportionately more fuel, into the combustion chamber than atmospheric pressure alone. Turbocharger is powered by a turbine which is driven by the engine's exhaust gases. In simple words, turbocharger uses the pressure energy of the exhaust gases and converts into kinetic energy to drive the turbines of turbocharger. There are various types of turbocharger like waste gated turbocharger, variable geometry turbocharger, twin turbocharger and others. Turbochargers can work for both gasoline and diesel engines and can significantly boost an engine's horsepower without significantly increasing its weight, which is the huge benefit that makes turbochargers prominent. Turbocharger are capable enough of increases the power output of an engine while surviving extreme operating conditions.

Market Determinants

Improved engine economization, stringent government regulations and enhanced engine performance & fuel efficiency are the major advantages of the turbochargers which are acting as driving agents to the turbocharger market. Complicated installation of turbocharger and Overheating of engine are restraints. Growing demand for fuel efficient and gasoline engines prominent opportunities. Moreover, the use of turbochargers for conventional IC engines ensure complete fuel combustion which reduces harmful emissions which can severely degrade the environment. However, turbochargers are expensive as compared to the traditional chargers and can overheat the engine, which can act as a major restraints to the market growth. In addition to this, inclination towards electric vehicles or (BEVs) is promoting the auto industry in their shift from combustion engines to electricity powered vehicles which will eventually hinder the growth of turbocharger market. On the other hand, growing demand for fuel efficient and gasoline engines can bring future growth opportunities for the industry.
