The global automotive electric turbocharger market size was valued at USD 0.13 billion in 2019 and projected to reach USD 0.5 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 12% during the forecast period.

Automotive turbochargers are considered to be an essential component in vehicles as they enhance the operating efficiency of the combustion engine. They utilize the exhaust gases emitted by the engine at the time of internal combustion to propel the turbine wheel in the turbochargers. This turbine wheel acts as a compressor that pulls in the outside air, compresses it, and sends it to the engine. However, the turbochargers can experience lags while spinning as they wait for the exhaust gases to exert pressure on them. These turbo lags are eliminated by the electric turbochargers by assisting the normal turbochargers at low engine speeds where the conventional turbo becomes inefficient. The engine downsizing has gained high significance in the automotive sector.

The integration of small engines in vehicles helps in the reduction of fuel emission. Hence, the adoption of electric turbochargers help the manufacturers to fulfill the new emission standards and regulations imposed by the government towards reducing the increasing carbon footprints and other harmful gases emitted by the automobiles. They are said to be highly efficient and environment friendly. Moreover, prominent players are investing a high percentage in research to invent advanced systems and develop superior designs of electric turbochargers to enhance the performance of the engine as well as increase fuel efficiency. Furthermore, the rapid growth in the volume of sales and production of automobiles is expected to propel the market growth across the globe.

The outbreak of COVID-19 in China and later its spread across the globe and the breakdown of the complete transportation system have severely impacted the world’s economy. This pandemic condition, rising number of infected patients and the total lockdown has forced the manufacturing operations to shut down. This has affected the manufacturing supply chain globally, particularly those companies that are majorly dependent on China for raw materials, components and other resources.

The automotive industry has also been impacted by various challenges owing to the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic. In the current scenario, where various governments have imposed complete lockdown owing to the spread of the virus, the global economic market has seen a drastic drop. According to the China Passenger Car Association, nearly 80% of the global automobile supply chain depends on China. To control the spread of the COVID-19, several employees and workers have been quarantined. This pandemic situation has created a shortfall in production and even disturbance in the supply chain. Many automotive manufacturing companies such as Nissan Motors, Hyundai, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV and Mitsubishi Motors Corporation have stopped the production unit provisionally as a measure to reduce the spread of coronavirus. Owing to this condition, the global automotive sales have fallen around 80%, with the highest drop seen in the first quarter of 2020 year. However, according to the forecast by the experts, it is estimated that the impact of this coronavirus pandemic may possibly last for at least a couple of years.
