Statistics show that there are currently more than 263 million cars on U.S. roads and highways -- a number that will likely grow even higher in the years to come. These reports take a closer examination of the global automotive thermostat market and the crankshaft market.
The United States is the world's second-largest country for passenger vehicles, surpassed only by China. As of 2015, there are approximately 263.6 million passenger vehicles in the United States.
The average age of these vehicles is approximately 11.4 years, according to the Institute of Highway Safety (IHS).
For millions of people, a car isn't a luxury; it's a necessity.
As a result, manufacturers of automotive parts and components have experienced increased sales as of late. This includes both automotive thermostats as well as crankshafts, both of which are explored in the following reports.
The Global Automotive Thermostat Indus…pth Research 2017 report by The Market Reports is a comprehensive study of the global automotive thermostat market. Among other things, it reveals the thermostat market's trends, classifications, definitions, chain structure, growth rate, drivers and challenges.
So, what is an automotive thermostat exactly? This component is used to regulate the flow of coolant from the radiator to the engine. Automotive engines are designed to operate at 195 degrees to 220 degrees.
When the engine is cold, the thermostat remains shut; thus, preventing coolant from flowing to the engine while subsequently allowing the engine to warm up. Once the engine reaches the aforementioned operating temperature, however, the thermostat opens.
Some of the key automotive thermostat vendors profiled in this report include BG Automotive, Borgwarner, Dongfeng-Fuji-Thomson, Fishman TT, Gates, Hella, Kirpart, Magal, Mahle, Ningbo Xingci Thermal, Nippon Thermostat, Shengguang, Stant, TAMA, Temb, Vernet, Wantai Auto Electric and others.
The Global Automotive Crankshaft Sales Market 2017 report by The Market Reports is a professional analysis of the global automotive crankshaft market. As the name suggests, the crankshaft is designed to create rotation.
It's primary purpose is to convert the reciprocating motion of the engine's pistons into rotary motion. Without this otherwise simple component, automobiles wouldn't be able to drive.
They would still produce power through combustion, but they wouldn't create the spin needed to turn the wheels.
Of course, the thermostat and crankshaft are just two of many components in a typical modern-day automobile. According to Toyota, the average car has roughly 30,000 individual parts -- a figure that also includes screws and bolts.
Each of these components requires manufacturing; thus, fueling the growth of the automotive components industry.
This report segments the global automotive crankshaft market by several criteria. On the basis of product type, the market is segmented into aluminum alloy, stainless steel, copper and other.
On the basis of end-user applications, the market is segmented into passenger car and commercial vehicle.
