Market Dynamics- Restraints
- Low replacement rate and aftermarket potential are expected to hinder the global automotive pumps market growth during the forecast period
Automotive pumps are an integral part of the transmission, driveline and auxiliary systems, which are rarely replaced in automotive. Replacement rate across the globe varies according to the category of pump, ranging between 0.1% and 1% of the vehicle parc. Growing technological advancements is expected to further reduce replacement rate during the forecast period. Therefore, very low potential offered by aftermarket and low replacement rate is expected to hinder the global automotive pumps market growth in the near future.
- Availability of better substitutes in terms of electric motors for pumps are expected to hamper the global automotive pumps market growth over the forecast period
Automotive pumps are actuated using electrical or mechanical energy and are accordingly classified as electric or mechanical pumps. Certain functionalities offered by steering or brake booster pumps can also be achieved by using electric motors. This, in turn, is expected to hamper the market growth over the forecast period.
- Providing custom-made pumps can present lucrative growth opportunities
Majority of automotive pump manufacturers laying emphasis on product differentiation, in order to maintain competitive advantage in the market. Automakers are introducing major changes in automotive and associated product designs, in order to cater to ever-changing consumer demands. Moreover, these manufactures are providing customized and requirement-specific products such as low vibration, brushless fuel pumps, and compact pumps for automakers. Offering such products is a potential opportunity to secure long-term supply contracts from automakers.
- Enhancing product line to offer a complete solution can provide major business opportunities
Pump manufacturers can offer a pump as solution rather than a product to automakers in order to sustain market share. Monitoring systems, controlling solutions and other auxiliaries can be integrated along with pumps, which can enhance brand visibility.
