Global Variable Valve Timing (VVT) Market Outlook 2017-2023 -


The "Variable
Valve Timing (VVT) - Global Market Outlook (2017-2023)"
has been added to's offering.

Global Variable Valve Timing (VVT) Market is accounted for $34.11
billion in 2016 and expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.4% to reach $52.99
billion by 2023.

Factors like increasing demand for fuel economy, advancements in the VVT
technology, stringent emission norms leading to higher VVT standards,
hybridization of vehicles are fuelling the market growth. However,
increasing share of alternative fuels and high cost of VVT are hampering
the market growth.

Growing demand of cam-less actuation and increased preference for diesel
cars is providing remunerative opportunity for the market. Moreover,
difficulty in procuring complex internal parts of VVT and limited
aftermarket supplies of VVT are the challenges faced by the market.

Based on Technology, Variable Valve Actuation (VVA) is used to add
flexibility to the engine's valve train by enabling variable valve event
timing, duration and/or lift. The main types of VVA technologies include
valve timing control (VTC), variable valve lift (VVL) and camless valve
trains. Recently, a new fully flexible hydraulic variable valve
actuation system for engines using rotary spool valves has been
developed. For instance, Eaton launched new variable valve actuation
system, used with all SRFF based VVA solutions to enable functions such
as cylinder deactivation, Miller cycle, internal exhaust gas
recirculation (iEGR) or early exhaust valve opening.

Based on fuel, the Diesel VVT System based engines are favored in
heavy-duty commercial and military applications as they have high
performance in terms of fuel economy, torque at low speed, and power
density. Several different VVA mechanisms have been implemented into
diesel engines for low emissions and high thermal efficiency.

The Asia-Pacific is projected to be the largest market during the
forecast period due to the stringent vehicle emission regulations and
increasing vehicle production. The contributing countries for the market
are China, India, and Japan.
