Automotive AC Compressor Market

Refrigeration gases are powerful greenhouse gases (in liquid form), and their leakage has a significant negative influence on the climate and the environment as a whole. As refrigerants are essential for compressor operation, governments of various countries across the world have legislated rules to decrease the pollution generated by these refrigerants. Strict enforcement of these laws is anticipated to stymie the expansion of the automotive AC compressors industry.

The lack of capacity in passenger cars is one factor affecting the installation of air conditioning systems in automobiles. Therefore, several original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are working to build lighter, more efficient, and smaller car air conditioning systems. The characteristics of original equipment manufacturers' automotive AC compressors also help to reduce vehicle vibration and noise levels. . Therefore, advancements in compressor design, which result in lower size and power consumption, are a prominent trend witnessed in the global automotive AC compressor market.

Automotive AC Compressor Market by Compressor Type

By compressor type, the variable displacement sub-segment dominated the market share in 2021. These compressors are in high demand in Europe and North America as they give exceptional acceleration while producing less CO2 and consuming less energy than fixed displacement compressors. The compressor controls the amount of refrigerant released by adjusting the angle of the revolving swash plate. This smooth control is connected to engine and driving conditions that increase not only driving comfort but also vehicle environmental efficiency by lowering compressor energy consumption. Variable displacement compressors will benefit greatly from engine conserving resource techniques and high fuel efficiency rules in automobiles. These are predicted to be the major factors affecting the automotive AC compressor market size during the forecast period.

Automotive AC Compressor Market by Vehicle Type

By vehicle type, the passenger cars sub-segment dominated the global automotive AC compressor market share in 2021. The growth of the passenger cars sub-segment can be attributed to the use of automotive AC compressors for manufacturing automotive components. Customers of passenger vehicles are more concerned with a vehicle's ride comfort and other amenities. Customers are ready to pay more for their comforts, and thus manufacturers have made air conditioning a standard feature in the majority of their car models to fulfill the customers’ demands. Such applications of automotive ac compressors in the automotive sector are bound to create a scope of growth for the sub-segment during the forecast period.

Automotive AC Compressor Market by Drive Type

By drive type, the conventional sub-segment dominated the market in 2021. Through a handle that is attached to the typical sub-segment by a V-belt, the vehicle engine powers it directly. The increase in the production of conventional has raised the need for AC compressors. The usage of air conditioners in large commercial vehicles is rising, which is expected to increase the demand for air compressors.

Automotive AC Compressor Market by Sales Channel

By sales channel, the OEM sub-segment dominated the market in 2021. Developing nations are spending heavily in the manufacturing sector in original equipment manufacturers (OEM) to establish a strong export potential, which is leading to increasing automotive production. The growing number of working people who own vehicles is driving up demand for automotive AC compressors.

Automotive AC Compressor Market by Region

By region, Asia-Pacific dominated the global market in 2021 and is projected to be the fastest-growing region during the forecast period. The automotive AC compressor demand in countries namely China and India is growing rapidly owing to the increase in production to meet both domestic and export demand for automobiles. These factors are expected to boost the Asia-Pacific automotive AC compressor market growth. The increase in this region is connected to a rise in the utilization of automotive AC compressors due to an increase in the number of automobiles on roadways in the United States and Canada.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Global Automotive AC Compressor Industry

  • COVID-19 has had a severe influence on several industries, including automotive, resulting in a significant drop in vehicle sales. As automotive AC compressors are widely employed in the automobile industry, there has been a major decrease in worldwide demand for automotive AC compressors.

  • China is the main producer of electric and raw material, but all industrial operations had been halted, majorly hampering the production of automotive AC compressor. However, as China was the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic, its export was hindered, resulting in a drop in automobile AC compressors.

  • As a result of lockdowns, the automobile sector had a considerable drop in vehicle production and sales throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, impeding the economy's progress. Moreover, the overall requirement for AC compressors in the automobile sector has been substantially impacted by import-export restrictions, restricted borders, and supply chain delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • The global economic recession has hampered the development of new automotive projects since the bulk of government funds have been transferred to the healthcare sector owing to the fast spread of the COVID-19 virus, which has had a significant influence on the market.
