Thermostats have been a crucial component in the internal combustion engines of automobiles for more than a century. Thermostats were incorporated originally for speeding the engine warming-up and reducing cylinder ring wear. At present, these thermostats are playing an increasingly important role in reducing the harmful emissions from the vehicle and increasing engine combustion efficiency. For accomplishing this task, the functions of a thermostat are controlled by the electronic control unit or ECU of the engine, thereby ensuring precise regulation of the engine temperature based on the loads of the engine. Thus, thermostats regulate engine temperature and keep it constant by controlling the flow rate of the coolant through the radiator, thereby making sure that there is a balance between the heat that is introduced into the system and the heat that is released externally.
Advanced technologies are pushing engine combustion quality and efficiency closer to the optimum operating conditions. As the engine is pushed closer to the 230-degree range, desired to improve both fuel economy and emissions, newer thermostat technology is required. Therefore, for raising the operating temperature of the passenger cars constantly to a higher level with safety and optimizing combustion and its accompanying factors the MAP-controlled thermostat was developed. An electrically assisted thermostat of MAP-controlled thermostat offer faster and broader operations as compared to the conventional thermostats. This type of thermostat supplements the basic regulation of the coolant circuit with a wax bulb, functioning as an material for expansion, by means of an electrically integrated and controlled heating element which is activated on demand. The thermostat can consequently influence the temperature considerable swiftly, thus allowing the engine to function in various operating and load conditions within the corresponding optimum range.
The global MAP-controlled automotive thermostat market is being strongly driven by the speedy growth of automobile production globally owing to rapid urbanization and rising disposable income in the developing nations. Further, the several benefits offered by these thermostats including offering optimum combustion because of increased component and wall temperatures, reduced fuel consumption owing to reduced frictional loss, lower pollution emissions due to improved combustion and improved power output at full load owing to reduced coolant temperature are expected to boost their adoption, thereby fueling growth of the global market during the forecast period from 2017-2025.
The global MAP-controlled automotive thermostat market can be segmented on the basis of vehicle type into passenger vehicles and commercial vehicles. Passenger vehicles are expected to hold a larger share of the global market during the forecast period, driven by growing urbanization levels and improving road infrastructure coupled with increasing personal mobility requirements and enhanced strength of the middle class segment in emerging nations. The global MAP-controlled automotive thermostat market can be further classified geographically into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America and Middle East and Africa. Asia Pacific is projected to record the fastest growth rate during the forecast period, bolstered by the increasing automotive production in countries such as Japan, India and China and rapidly increasing demand for the mid-segment vehicles.
