Automotive Tensioner: Introduction

  • The automotive tensioner is designed to create a tension or to apply force on the engine belt. The application of force on an engine belt may be parallel to the tension in the belt in case of hydraulic tensioner or may be perpendicular in case of spring loaded chain drive tensioner.
  • Automotive tensioner has been widely adopted for automobile engines since the 1980s in order to reduce the noise generated by the timing belts that are used to drive the camshafts. Moreover, the automotive tensioner is adopted to improve the durability of the belt that is used to drive the camshaft. In 1986, the first automotive tensioner was used by The Ford Motor Company in their Mercury Sable vehicle.

Key Drivers of Global Automotive Tensioner Market

  • Rise in demand for light weight vehicles across the globe, in order to increase fuel-efficiency of the vehicle, is estimated to boost the automotive tensioner market. Increase in production and sale of passenger vehicles across the globe is likely to fuel the demand for automotive tensioner significantly, which in turn is projected to drive the automotive tensioner market across the globe.
  • Increase in concern about global warming and other environmental issues and the development of technologies to reduce fuel consumption are expected to boost the demand for lighter and more compact automotive tensioners. Various countries have enacted rules and regulations to reduce fuel consumption and emissions. Consequently, various vehicle manufacturers have been developing low fuel consumption technologies that would help reduce CO2 emissions and create the ways to save energy. This, in turn, is likely to boost the automotive tensioner market across the globe.
