The report is a comprehensive presentation of trends, forecast and dollar values of global active grille shutter market. According to the report, the global active grille shutter market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 9.8% over the forecast period of 2018-2024.
Grille shutters, as the name implies are shutters similar to
the window blinds that typically fit right behind a vehicle’s grille or in
front of the air inlet. Without shutters, air flows through the grille and into
the engine bay, either sucked in by the radiator fan or forced in by the
movement of the car through the air. Majority of that air then passes through
the fins of the radiator located directly behind the grille, helping cool down
the coolant within, which in turn keeps the engine cool. The additional air
flows through a complex path and it’s subject to lots of interruption and
disturbance before it finds its way out, usually underneath the vehicle. This
can add significant aerodynamic drag to the car, increasing the amount of
energy needed to move and thus decreasing gas mileage. Active grille shutters
improve fuel efficiency by opening and closing automatically to control the
airflow. When it’s open, the shutters allow the air to flow through the
radiator and into the engine compartment, as usual. But when the air is not
needed, the shutters close, diverting the air around the vehicle to lessen
aerodynamic drag and reduce fuel consumption. Additionally, the closed shutters
also reduce warm-up time in cold weather.
A major driver for the global active grille shutter market
is the fact that by implementing the grille shutters the fuel efficiency of the vehicle improves. Now, more people are concerned about the fuel efficiency of
their vehicles. Governments of many countries or states have put forth
stringent rules and regulations for air pollution and greenhouse gas emission.
Fuel-efficient cars also mean cars with low emission. Hence, the demand for
active grille shutter is growing among the automobile manufacturers to reduce
the emission and produce vehicles that fit into the Government’s norms of gas
emission. However, the presence of alternative may hamper the global active grille
shutter market. Having said that, people are willing to spend more on vehicles
as a result of increasing disposable income and improving lifestyle. Global
active grille shutter market may turn this into their favor.
Among the geographical segments, Europe is the leading segment
in the global active grille shutter market. Many of the national governments in
the European region have very strict rules regarding the environment, air
pollution, and greenhouse gas emission. Thus, there is a growing demand for
vehicles with low emission and eventually for the active grille shutters in
Europe. People in Europe have demand for vehicles with advanced features to
match their high lifestyle and can afford such vehicles as they have high
disposable income. Therefore, many vehicles in the European region have active
grille shutters in them.
