Aluminum heat shields to witness consistent use in Europe

Considering the demand for corrosion-resistance and lightweight components, aluminum has become trendier among European heat shield suppliers. Upsides such as low coefficient of thermal expansion, high-temperature resistance and high strength have solidified the position of aluminum heat shields in the U.K., France, and Italy.

The aluminum heat shield segment is forecast to hold over 40% share of the Europe market by 2026. Besides, in terms of value, total Europe automotive heat shield market is projected to surpass USD 665 million by 2026. Robust projections have come on the back of an unprecedented adoption of EVs and the installation of strong batteries.

APAC market relies on the penetration of OEM sales channel

End-users in India, China, Vietnam, and Japan are cashing in on the growing sales of heat shields through the OEM channels. Notably, the number of autonomous vehicles in APAC could touch 25 million units by 2024. The OEM heat shield segment captured over 80% share of the Asia Pacific market and is likely to witness a commendable gain by 2026.

Considering the adoption of electric vehicles across the emerging economies, heat shields are likely to be sought through the OEM sales mode, boosting the regional presence of the industry players. According to a study, total Asia Pacific automotive heat shield market size is expected to reach USD 1.3 billion by 2026.

China to boost the manufacturing of heatshields

Automotive head shield manufacturers are all but poised to bolster their penetration in untapped areas of the China market. Considering that China has been at the forefront in the adoption of EVs, demand for aluminum and stainless-steel heat shield has surged. Both OEMs and aftermarkets are observing an increasing preference for heat shields.

As automakers focus on the technology advancements to keep battery cells cool, they are likely to bank on a low-weight silicone rubber heat shield for the lithium battery system. The China automotive heat shield market forecast is slated to be buoyant with a growing preference for e-mobility across the value chain.

Challenges and opportunities

As economies seemingly recover globally, automotive heat shield manufacturers are likely to overcome challenges of supply chain disruptions, material shortages and rising prices. While the first half of 2020 was marred with the pandemic, the second half provided some respite. The Chinese market performed particularly well, with the U.S. following the suit. Consumer confidence in heat shields is likely to rise on the back of surging demand for mobility, automation, and connectivity.
