According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Automotive Heat Shield Market is accounted for $12.99 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach $17.82 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 5.4% during the forecast period. Automotive heat shields are used to limit the spread of heat from excessively hot components that can cause vehicle damage. The heat shields are determined by the design, weight, material, and structure of the vehicle's components. Furthermore, the heat shields are built to fit the various shapes and sizes of the component, which vary according on the vehicle model. The engine generates a large quantity of heat and requires a precise temperature to function properly, and the shield protects the components by absorbing or deflecting the heat.

According to the OICA, China alone held nearly 25% of the global automotive production. Furthermore, in China, the auto industry saw a rapid growth rate with production and sales both hitting new records in 2018.

Market Dynamics:


Increase in focus on light weight and efficient fuel standards

One method for increasing fuel economy is to reduce the weight of the vehicles. As a result, OEMs are focusing on producing light-weight automobiles in order to meet tight fuel economy criteria. The heat shield producers are working on designing lightweight and efficient heat shields. Tenneco, for example, a heat shield producer, makes heat shields out of ultra-lightweight corrugated aluminium. This material has 80% less bulk than aluminized steel and provides 15-30% higher heat protection. Hence, the growing emphasis on low weight and efficient fuel regulations is likely to drive growth in the automotive heat shield market.


Restriction on ICE vehicles by major countries

Major European automakers are gradually transitioning towards completely electric or mild hybrid automobiles. For instance, In April 2020, 24 major European countries imposed car levies based on fuel use or CO2 emissions. OEMs are shifting their focus and investing in electric propulsion rather than refining ICE vehicles to meet regulatory requirements. Though electric vehicles provide income potential for heat shield makers, the necessity for thermal management in EVs is lower than in ICE vehicles. Existing ICE heat barriers will not be effective. As a result, government limits on ICE vehicles and promotion of alternative propulsion systems would minimise the need for heat shields during the anticipated period.


Rise in demand of hybrid & electric vehicle

The carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide emissions from internal combustion engine automobiles pollute the environment. As a result, governments in leading countries are encouraging the use of electric vehicles. The absence of charging stations in various places throughout the world has fuelled the proliferation of hybrid automobiles. For example, all of the world's main automobile manufacturers, including Tesla, Ford, General Motors (GM), Mercedes, Audi, and others, are working on making electric vehicles more efficient so that they can drive greater distances on a single charge, and all are making the vehicles affordable. This rise in the electric vehicle market is likely to boost the expansion of the automotive heat shield market.


Increased vehicle weight

A heat shield for a vehicle adds to the overall weight of the vehicle. Both metallic and non-metallic materials contribute to the overall weight of the vehicle. Ongoing research is expected to contribute to the development of lightweight shielding technologies in the near future. However, the additional weight is currently added to vehicles in accordance with OEM requirements. The added weight would, in turn, reduce a vehicle's fuel efficiency. Thus, additional weight is one major challenge in the automotive heat shield market.

Covid-19 Impact

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic had a negative impact on the automotive heat shield market during the first two quarters of 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the market, as new car manufacture and sales have ceased globally. Furthermore, due to the lockdown, the supply of raw materials essential for heat shield fabrication has been disrupted, significantly delaying the process. As a result, the production halt during the epidemic and lower automobile demand following the pandemic will have a long-term impact on the automotive heat shield market.

The passenger car segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The passenger car segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth, due to rise in production of passenger vehicles across the globe. Rising demand for fuel-efficient automobiles, along with increasingly rigorous pollution regulations, has fuelled the rise of this market. Increased per capita disposable income and rising living standards are fuelling a surge in demand for passenger cars in Asia Pacific, the Middle East, and Africa, driving product demand.

The metallic segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The metallic segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period, due to increasing vehicle production and greater reliance on fuel-compact engines. Heat shields for the turbocharger and exhaust system are categorised as metallic heat shields. Because of their equivalent conductivity, durability, and improved lightweight property, items constructed from various types of metallic alloys are in high demand. Furthermore, availability of metal shielding enclosures in a wide range of dimensions for various electronic systems that are rapidly growing in the automotive industry.

Region with largest share:

Asia Pacific is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period because of superior electronics in India, Japan, and South Korea. The region has a growing demand for LCVs and HCVs to provide effective logistical services to its rapidly expanding industrial sector. The rapid rise of the e-commerce sector has created a substantial need for commercial vehicles, increasing demand for automotive heat shields. Furthermore, the adoption of new technologies, as well as expansion in automobile production and automotive component sectors, are some of the factors driving market growth.

Region with highest CAGR:

North America is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period, the key factor driving regional demand was the increased desire for lightweight and fuel-efficient vehicles. Heat shield advancements with advances in ceramic materials for heat shield components will accelerate the expansion of this sector over the forecast period. Furthermore, the presence of a well-developed automotive industry, combined with increased use of electric vehicles, is likely to drive market expansion throughout the projection period.
