An engine block, also referred to as cylinder block, is a key component that make up the bottom end of a motor. It is composed from an aluminum alloy and cast iron on modern cars, trucks and older vehicles.
The global market size for engine blocks was valued at USD 54.81 billion in 2018 and is anticipated to rise up to USD 68.04 billion by 2025 with a CAGR of 1.91% during the forecast period. Growing vehicle production in developing economies is anticipated to drive the automotive engine block market growth. Besides, demand for light weighting vehicle to meet the specific requirements with stringent emission norms is predicted to boost the demand for lighter engine blocks.
With the help of compacted graphite iron (CGI), engine block structure is able to achieve small cross-section. When compared to aluminum, CGI facilitate with better fatigue resistance at high temperatures. This reason particularly contribute in higher adoption of CGI in diesel and V-engines as it decrease flexing area between the cylinders. Apart from that, evolving technology and seismic shift from fossil fuel vehicles to hybrid vehicles have boosted light weighted engine blocks demand. Manufacturers are emphasizing on offering machined engine blocks so as to enhance productivity and value of product.
