Timing Gear Market Outlook – 2030

The growth of the auto parts market is directly proportional to global auto production trends. Today's various valve timing technologies use to improve engines fuel efficiency and reduce emissions, making today's vehicles more environmentally friendly. The timing gear is a gear that rotates and transmits the movement of the crankshaft to the camshaft, and ultimately controls the opening and closing of the intake and exhaust valves. The timing gear is connected by chain or belt to the crankshaft at one end and camshaft at another end. The proper operation of an engine requires proper functioning of timing gear, as few degree lag can affect functioning of engine. Thus, an engine must be properly timed. Most of the modern automobile engines use timing belts or chains in order to synchronize camshaft and crankshaft rotation; some engines use gears as well to drive the camshafts directly. According to the engine's requirements, timing gears are highly customized in terms of design and size. Various factors such as implementation of Euro VI emission norms by various international bodies is pushing manufacturers on developing new valve timing related technologies. The growing production of automobiles across the globe, rising need of modern engines to improve the vehicle efficiency, adoption of stringent emission standards regarding fuel efficient engines and low emission levels, increasing demand of product replacement are some of the major impactful factors which will likely to uplift the growth of the timing gear market.

COVID-19 Impact analysis

The vendors in automotive timing gear industry across the globe is being affected severely due to the restrictions on producers as well as the declared lockdowns which in turn is affecting the seat belt system manufacturers worldwide. As the governments all over the world have declared lockdowns over the past few months, the demand and supply cycle of many timing gear manufacturers is vulnerable. The pandemic has had a negative impact on the timing gear market size for the year 2020, a major deviation is noticed in the growth of automotive timing gear manufacturers due to coronavirus. Timing gear system is an evolving sector which is hampered due to an ongoing virus, because of which all type of production and installation across the affected countries had been shut down & all operations were disrupted due to the pandemic. Majority of automotive timing gear manufacturers are facing major issues such as closure of factories and unavailability of workforce due to the lockdowns which further affects the production of cars as well.

Top Impacting Factors

  • Technological development, replacement demands, and automobile production & requirements for modern engines are driving the growth of the market.
  • Replacement and R&D cost is expected to hamper the growth of the market.
  • Strict government regulation can be seen as an opportunity for the market investments.

The automotive timing gear market trends are as follows:

Technological development

Compared with the use of belt technology, the automobile timing chain reduces friction by 25%. In addition, the timing chain may last the entire life cycle of the vehicle and is more reliable than traditional belt technology in internal combustion engines. The demand for improved engine performance and fuel economy is driving the demand for automotive timing chains. The timing chain is an important component that helps improve vehicle performance and speed. Hence, automakers are preferring timing chains over belt technology. The research and development of lightweight, low-cost, and long-life timing gear is driving the growth of the global automotive timing gear market.

Strict government regulation

Government initiatives and new standards around the world are prompting automakers to improve fuel economy by reducing the weight of vehicles and parts. For example, the corporate average fuel economy (CAFÉ) standards in Europe and Asia Pacific are paving the way for vehicles with higher fuel economy. Reducing the weight of automobile engines to improve fuel economy is a key factor to promote the development of the automobile timing gear market.
