Automotive Condenser Market Research, 2032

The global automotive condenser market size was valued at $6.8 billion in 2022, and is projected to reach $10.9 billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 5% from 2023 to 2032.

Automotive Condenser Market

Market Introduction and Definition 

Automotive condensers, also called air conditioning condensers, are an essential component of a vehicle air conditioning system. The condenser works to reduce the temperature of the refrigerant during the condensation process. The automobile air conditioner holes also discharge the cold liquid that forms in the condenser when the heated temperature is effectively lowered. Automotive condensers play a pivotal role in producing cool air circulated within the vehicle's cabin and increase comfort inside a vehicle cabin.

Key Takeaways

  • The automotive condensers market forecast covers 20 countries. The research includes a segment analysis of each country in terms of value for the projected period.
  • More than 1, 500 product literatures, industry releases, annual reports, and other such documents of major automotive condenser industry participants along with authentic industry journals, trade associations' releases, and government websites have been reviewed for generating high-value industry insights.
  • The study integrated high-quality data, professional opinions and analysis, and critical independent perspectives. The research approach is intended to provide a balanced view of global markets and to assist stakeholders in making educated decisions in order to achieve their most ambitious growth objectives.

Recent Key Strategies and Developments

  • On July 6, 2023, Marelli Corporation announced its new integrated thermal management module for electric vehicles for efficient thermal management and increasing driving range. The company's new water-cooled condenser has a smart valve arrangement, which can manage up to 6 channel combinations for optimized cooling. The system reduces system complexity and ensures ideal cooling of electric powertrain and cabin.
  • In July 2020, MAHLE GmbH announced the launch of its new condenser for faster charging in electric vehicles. The new condenser is specifically designed to increase power density and provide optimum cooling of the battery and cabin without the need for extra installation space. The new condenser model production process is also optimized to provide a lighter-weight product that is less susceptible to corrosion and requires less refrigerant.


      Key Market Dynamics

      The global automotive condenser market size is growing due to several factors, such as an increase in demand for better driving comfort in automobiles, growth in sales of automobiles, and growth in regulatory standards in the automobile industry. However, high costs and fluctuation in the price of raw materials and perception of risk restrain the development of the market. In addition, growth in sales of electric and hybrid vehicles and integration of advanced cooling technologies and integration of lightweight materials are expected to provide ample opportunities for the automotive condenser market growth during the forecast period.

      One of the major driving factors is increase in demand for better driving comfort in automobiles. In recent years, there has been a growing customer preference toward comfort and safety in automobiles. This is due to changes in consumer lifestyles and increased demand for advanced technology features in automobiles. With the growing urbanization and rising temperature levels, there is a growing demand for advanced cooling systems in automobiles to maintain comfortable temperatures inside a vehicle; this has led to automobile manufacturing companies investing more in the development of advanced air-conditioning systems, thus driving the demand for automotive condensers.

      Moreover, growth in sales of electric and hybrid vehicles is further escalating the market for automotive condensers. For instance, in a recent article published by ET Auto in 2023, India witnessed a 120% sales growth in the electric vehicle segment; similarly, the country also witnessed a 400% surge in demand for hybrid vehicles. Major countries around the world are also experiencing an increase in demand for hybrid and electric vehicles due to the increase in the price of petroleum and growth in emission regulations on traditional ICE automobiles. The demand for electric and hybrid vehicles is anticipated to continue during the forecast period, creating market expansion opportunities for the companies operating in the market.

      However, the high costs associated with the purchase and maintenance of condensers are anticipated to hinder its market growth during the review period. The complex electronics and regular maintenance required for condensers' microchannel tubes, fins, and expensive materials used, such as aluminum, increase the overall cost of condensers. Moreover, automotive condensers work in harsh environments as they are located in the front bumper. They are more prone to dust and debris, which obstruct the flow of air and reduce the air conditioning cooling efficiency. Likewise, the coolant used in condensers requires regular refills and changes from time to time. This increases its overall maintenance cost, thus hindering the automotive condenser market forecast growth.

      Market Segmentation

      The automotive condenser market share is segmented into type, material, vehicle type, sales channel and region. On the basis of type, the market is segregated into a single flow, tubes and fins, serpentines and parallel flow. By material, the market is analyzed into aluminum and copper. On the basis of vehicle type, the market is segmented into passenger vehicles and commercial vehicles. By sales channel, the market is segmented into OEM and aftermarket. Region wise, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

      Regional/Country Market Outlook

      In Mexico, the growth in sales and production of automobiles has created a lucrative market opportunity for the global automotive condenser manufacturer in the region.

      The major factors driving the growth of Mexico's automotive industry are favorable business conditions, strategic location, and established automotive clusters throughout the country; high availability of laborers and a cheap labor force are also helping in growing vehicle production, thus driving the demand for automotive condensers in the region. For instance, according to the International Trade Administration,

      Mexico is the world’s 7th largest passenger vehicle manufacturer, manufacturing around 3.5 million vehicles annually. 76% of vehicles manufactured in Mexico are exported in the U.S. The country has a presence of companies such as Audi, BMW, Ford Motor Company, General Motors, Honda, Hyundai, Kia, Mazda, Mercedes Benz, Nissan, Stellantis, Toyota, Volkswagen, and Tesla. The U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) , which was enacted in 2020, further helped in the growth of the automotive industry in the country.

      On May 7, 2021, Hanon Systems announced completion of its acquisition of the condenser business from Keihin Corporation for certain operations in Europe and North America region. The acquisition will help Hanon System to supply auto manufacturers with condenser technology and further diversify its customer base. The acquisition includes Keihin’s condenser operation in Kladno, Czech Republic, and San Luis Potosi, Mexico region.
