NEW YORK, Nov. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

Cylinder Deactivation is a Key Strategy to Increase Fuel Efficiency

In pursuit of enhanced fleet average fuel economy and adherence to stringent emission norms, OEMs and the entire automotive value chain are adopting and implementing various powertrain strategies. Cylinder deactivation is one such strategy, which along with other complementing technologies, will help OEMs enhance their fleet average fuel economy and reduce CO2 emissions. This study offers a 360 degree perspective of the global cylinder deactivation market, with a focus on technology and market drivers/challenges, trends, unit production forecasts, market share analysis, competitive landscape, and forecasts by OEM/region/vehicle segment and provides scenario analyses and OEM profiles along with key conclusions till 2022.

Key Findings
In 2022, cylinder deactivation penetration is expected to reach about M vehicles (from a penetration of M vehicles in 2015).

Cylinder Deactivation Penetration
Key original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), such as Volkswagen, General Motors, Daimler, and Fiat-Chrysler will adopt a greater number of cylinder deactivation engines for C-Compact, P-Pickup, and SUV segment vehicles. By 2022, cylinder deactivation is likely to reach about % of the total gasoline engines produced by the above OEMs. Other OEMs, such as Ford, will adopt cylinder deactivation technology by 2018, and the overall volume of units with cylinder deactivation is likely to increase from million in 2015 to million in 2022.

Based on the fuel economy saving and the CO2 reduction potential, cylinder deactivation systems are expected to cost between $ and $ .

Tonnage versus Engine Capacity
In the North American market, engines with capacities of 3.0L and above will have cylinder deactivation as a standard.

Vehicle Segment
In North America, higher segment vehicles (E-Large, SUVs, MPVs, and P-Pickups), accounting for approximately million vehicles, will have cylinder deactivation technology as a standard. In Europe and Asia, lower vehicle segments (C-Compact and D-Midsize), accounting for approximately million vehicles, will have cylinder deactivation technology as a standard.

Market Share
In 2022, General Motors is expected to hold the highest market share ( - %) of cylinder deactivated engine units, followed by Volkswagen ( - %) and Fiat-Chrysler ( - %). Delphi and Schaeffler, among others, are expected to be the key cylinder deactivation component suppliers for these OEMs.
