Automotive Solenoid Market – Analysis with Ongoing Trends & Market Revenue

The global Automotive Solenoid Market is estimated to be USD 4.3 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 6.2 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 7.3% from 2021 to 2026.

Asia-Pacific is estimated to lead the market during the forecast. The fact that solenoids are used in various automotive systems and features in every vehicle is expected to drive the market during the forecast. With the rising demand for luxurious vehicles, there has been a substantial increase in the use of technologically advanced systems such as automatic transmission systems, automatic door lock/tailgate, power windows, and sunroof control which have raised the demand for solenoids.

Companies such as Robert Bosch (Germany), Denso Corporation (Japan), ZF Friedrichshafen (Germany), MAHLE Group (Germany), Johnson Electric (US), and BorgWarner (US) are leading the market.

Opportunity: Wide array of applications employing the use of solenoids

Solenoids are used in many applications in modern cars to improve their performance and efficiency. Some of the major applications are as follows:

  1. Door locks and trunk release solenoid
  2. Starter solenoid functions, automatic transmission control, dual clutch transmission control, turbocharger control, and variable valve timing
  3. EGR controls, evaporative emission control (EVAP) system, fuel ignition coils, and engine fuel shut off valve
  4. ABS, air suspension system, and HVAC system

Increasing consumer preference for new improved transmission systems, such as AMT, DCT, and CVT which provide an enhanced driving experience with better control and acceleration of the vehicle. This is mainly because transmission systems enable real-time control of torque with each gearshift. The friction losses created during the shifting of gears are reduced, and they are quickly synchronized with the torque required for the new gear, which in turn increase the time taken for the torque to set with the new gear. This has further improved the fuel efficiency of the vehicle along with the elimination of any scope for human error as most of the work while shifting the gears is controlled by sensors, solenoids, and computers.

The rapidly growing automated comfort and features in vehicles is the key factor for the growth of the automotive solenoid industry. The Asia Pacific dominates the automotive solenoid industry due to the significant vehicle production volumes in China, India, Japan, and South Korea. The market penetration of automotive solenoids is expected to grow further due to increasing vehicle production and technological advancements in automotive components. The majority of the automotive OEMs and Tier-I suppliers have established themselves in this region.

Body control and Interiors are estimated to constitute the largest market segment of the global automotive solenoid market, by application type, while the fuel and emission control segment is estimated to contribute as the fastest-growing segment in the automotive solenoid market, by application type. The demand for body control and Interiors and fuel and emission control is high in countries such as India, China, the US, Germany, and Spain due to the increased demand for vehicles for personal as well as commercial purposes.

The region is dominated by premium cars, SUVs, and pickup trucks. These vehicle segments require thermal components to offer effective heat dissipation and engine cooling. The growing market presents several opportunities for automotive solenoid manufacturers. The sales statistics indicate promising growth potential, especially the sales of pick-up trucks and SUVs, which are estimated to dominate the market. Proximity to the U.S., one of the largest automobile markets, and the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) are driving the Canadian and Mexican automotive sectors, thus contributing to the growth of the automotive solenoid market in the region.

The European region is estimated to be dominated by countries such as Germany, France, Spain, and the UK. As per the European Commission, there are about 180 automobile facilities across the EU and the sector is the largest investor in R&D. Growing technological trends for premium vehicles will greatly impact the market. This will boost the overall demand for automotive solenoids in the region. Moreover, manufacturers such as MAHLE Group, Bosch, and ZF have their presence in the region.
