Automotive heat shield, as the name suggests, is designed to shield a substance from absorbing excessive heat from an outside source by dissipating, reflecting or simply absorbing the heat. It is often used as a form of exhaust heat management.
Due to large amounts of heat given by internal combustion engines, heat shields are used on most engines to protect components and bodywork from heat damage. Even in protection, effective heat shields can give performance benefit by reducing the under-bonnet temperatures, therefore reducing the intake temperature.
The areas of a vehicle that develop high temperatures need effectual heat shielding solutions. The sophistically designed shielding solutions to help bring vehicles in line with increasein the capacity of vehicles’ internal combustion engine generate a large amount of heat that can damage the vehicles’ other components and body work.
Increasing the number of automotive sales across the globe, there is an immense scope and great opportunities for the automotive heat shield market. Due to the advancement in technology, automotive heat shield manufacturers have been able to bring innovation to their products. Integration and customization of heat shields with advanced technologies have been able to ensure new and innovative heat shielding components for hybrid and electric vehicles.
Such new segment of vehicles is going to be largely preferred by the consumers in the coming years because of their eco-friendliness, fuel-efficiency, and the other features. Moreover, the advancement of automotive heat shield technology in standard vehicles such as application of heat shield components inside the vehicle to prevent heat combustion of engine and air-conditioning unit; has made a positive impact on the overall automobile sector.
Automotive heat shield Market By Application Type is segmented into Exhaust System Heat Shield, Engine Compartment Heat Shield, Turbocharger Heat Shield, Under Bonnet Heat Shield, Under Chassis Heat Shield. Automotive heat shield Market By Vehicle Type is segmented into Passenger Car, Light Commercial Vehicle, Heavy Commercial Vehicle. Automotive heat shield Market By Material Type is segmented into Metallic, Non-Metallic.
The Non-metallic heat shield is the most commonly used heat shield material mainly due to rising use of composite and related materials in the manufacturing of heat shields. Also, the non-metallic heat shields are lighter in weight and have high temperature resisting capacity; which accounts for their higher market share during forecast period of 2014-2025.
