Automotive Engine Technologies - Global Sector Overview and Forecast to 2036 (Q2 2021 Update)
ページ情報: 英文 187 Pages
Automotive sector's requirement to meet future emission and CO2 regulations sees engine technology at the centre of most automakers' R&D efforts at present. While other elements such as the drivetrain, body materials, aerodynamics and tyres can all be further optimised for fuel economy - the engine is by far the biggest contributor to energy losses in a conventional driveline and, therefore, the biggest target for reducing CO2 emissions.
Depending on operating load conditions, the engine contributes anywhere between 45 and 80% of the energy losses in a vehicle; followed by the driveline (15%), rolling resistance and aerodynamics (each with 11%), weight (10%) and auxiliary systems (6%). While work on improving driveline losses, reducing vehicle weight etc. is all ongoing in automakers' R&D departments, engine development remains key to meeting future emission legislation and also for maintaining automakers' brand attributes in terms of performance, driver feedback, comfort and control.
While meeting legislative requirements is a necessity for automakers, the legislation has to be met on a commercially viable basis - i.e., legislation cannot be met at any cost. Currently, it is estimated that the internal combustion engine is the single biggest cost contributor to a vehicle's Bill of Materials, accounting for anything between 30 and 40% of material cost depending on the vehicle and engine type. Clearly, adding further cost to this reality is a consideration that has to be undertaken very carefully. Therefore, considered cost-benefit analyses have to be conceived by each automaker for the multiple technological paths that are available for meeting legislative and competitive requirements. Further, scale strategies in engine development are coming increasingly to the fore as automakers look to squeeze cost savings in development and manufacturing to pay for the incremental technology.
