The global automotive heat shield market size is expected to reach US$ 10 billion by 2030 expanding at a CAGR of 4.1% from 2021 to 2030. The rise in the demand for lightweight vehicles due to the enactment of stringent emission norms is likely to boost the automotive heat shield market across the globe.
The demand for sports utility vehicles and multiutility vehicles has been rising at a rapid pace. These vehicles are equipped with turbochargers and superchargers, owing to a large amount of heat generated due to their high power output and engine capacities. Furthermore, the expansion of these segments is likely to boost the automotive heat shield market at a significant pace during the forecast period.
For instance, after a global slowdown in the automobile industry, several governments have reduced taxes on automobiles to encourage sale of vehicles. Rising safety features and comfort features in vehicles is boosting their sale, which, in turn, is likely to propel the automotive heat shield market across the globe.
Lightweight Fiber Materials in Shields Improve Performance of Automotive Components
Automotive heat shields are being routinely used in passenger cars and light trucks to deploy flame resistance from components that release excess heat. Companies in the automotive heat shield market are now increasing their focus in professional racecars to broaden their revenue streams. For instance, leading provider of industrial chemicals, synthetic fibers DuPont, is increasing its marketing potentials to bring DuPont™ Nomex® into visibility as a highly durable automotive heat shield. Innovative products are bolstering revenue growth for the market, which is estimated to surpass the revenue of US$ 10 Bn by the end of 2030.
Improving safety and performance of automotive components has become very important for manufacturers in the automotive heat shield market. Hence, manufacturers are increasing their R&D muscle in developing lightweight fiber materials that offer protection against heat and flames. High-temperature automotive applications are fueling the demand for automotive heat shields.
Self-adhesive Automotive Heat Shields Resist Harsh Environments in Vehicles
Self-adhesive heat shields are a novel introduction in the automotive heat shield market. These sheets are being extensively used to protect components from heat sources in vehicles. Innovative self-adhesive heat shields are laminated with pressure-sensitive adhesives (PSA) to improve the performance of automotive components. Multinational manufacturer and distributor of pressure-sensitive adhesive materials Avery Dennison has acquired proficiency in manufacturing self-adhesive automotive heat shields with PSAs that can be mechanically fastened to avoid extra tooling.
Companies in the automotive heat shield market are increasing their production to accommodate slimmer designs spaces in products that reduce rattle and eliminate the need for extra tooling. They are increasing their research expenditure to develop automotive heat shields that adhere to a variety of difficult to bond to substrates. Automotive manufacturers are preferring automotive heat shields that qualify in withstanding harsh environments.
Nanometric Coating-induced Heat Shields Deploy High Infrared Reflectivity and Corrosion Resistance
Manufacturers in the automotive heat shield market are experimenting with nanometric coatings of aluminum in stainless steel heat shields to increase their thermal efficacy. BS Stainless - a metal fabricator in Walton Summit Centre, England, has introduced its product ShieldMet, which combines the strength and corrosion resistant properties of stainless steel with high reflectivity of aluminum in heat shield applications. Nanometric coatings made from aluminum are being highly publicized to preserve the aesthetical aspect of stainless steel automotive heat shields even under high temperatures.
The high infrared reflectivity of nanometric coatings is being preferred in automotive heat shields. Companies in the automotive heat shield market are increasing their production capacities to develop plasma vacuum coated shields made from stainless steel. Excellent corrosion resistance and formability of nanometric coating-induced heat shields is attracting the attention of vehicle manufacturers.
Ceramic Coatings Enhance Aesthetic Appeal of Automotive Heat Shields
Companies in the automotive heat shield market are increasing efforts to improve the aesthetic appeal of heat shields. For instance, Cerakote - a global manufacturer of thin-film ceramic coatings is tapping incremental opportunities via online sales for its Black Velvet and Burnt Bronze automotive heat shields that can also be used in motorcycle pipes. Manufacturers are establishing their company-owned websites that provide extensive safety data, tech data, and application guidelines to customers buying their products online.
Metallic and velvety finish in automotive heat shields is highly preferred by automobile manufacturers. Companies in the automotive heat shield market are developing products that eliminate the need for catalysts. They are using ceramic coatings that can resist hundreds of Fahrenheit temperature. High temperature coatings are setting the benchmark for innovations in automotive heat shields. Coating manufacturers are increasing the availability of air cured and ready-to-spray coatings that offer cost and time efficiency to automakers.
