The global automotive electric vacuum pump market Size was valued at USD 1.11 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 2.7 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.0% during the forecast period.

The automotive electric vacuum pump enhances the performance of the engine. It is driven by the camshaft in the engine. Servo-assistance is provided to the braking systems of motor vehicles. It is used to reduce the load, which is applied on the brake pedal for a particular braking effect. A vacuum brake booster is typically used to provide vacuum assistance. A vacuum pump is driven mechanically by the depression by the engine inlet manifold or the vehicle engine.

However, recently, automotive electric vacuum pumps (EVPs) are gaining popularity as they are not dependent on the vehicle engine, which allows greater flexibility in the utilization of engine compartment and engine design. The electric vacuum pump turns on only when the brakes are applied and avoid running continuously without demand at high speeds. Automotive electric vacuum pumps support all engines and support a flexible vehicle platform concept. These factors are leading to increased adoption of automotive EVPs.

Use of Advanced Materials in EVPs is one of the rising trends in Electric Vacuum Pump Market

Key market suppliers are continuously working towards bringing innovations and improvements in the manufacture of automotive electric vacuum pumps. The key players are introducing materials with enhanced wear rate predictability. Manufacturers are also utilizing innovative materials to extend the life of electric vacuum pump vanes. Additionally, benefits such as improved ring seal by relieving crankcase pressure below the rings, reduced gas pollution, and reduced lubricant contamination are positive factors impacting the R&D of this technology. Also, the recent introduction of predictive maintenance systems in which a remote diagnostic center receives information and schedules maintenance. Predictive maintenance is one of the rising trends towards the elimination of errors for the braking systems.


Need for improving the Fuel Efficiency and Durability of Vehicle Market is Expected to Drive the Market Growth

The key factor fueling the automotive electric vacuum pump market growth is the improved fuel efficiency of vehicles via the adoption of automotive EVPs. It can be switched on and off according to demand. Hence, the excessive energy consumption of idling mechanical pumps can be averted. On-demand pump operation, moreover, contributes to potentially longer service life for the pump while increasing the life of the motor. The absence of a mechanical pump also reduces the load on the engine lubrication system, as no extra oil is required for lubricating the vacuum pump. This can allow a more compact design of the pump, which in turn boosts engine efficiency. Averting improper braking, even in unfavorable driving conditions, reduces excessive CO2 emissions and thus preserves fuel, which improves the fuel efficiency of a vehicle. Thus, the development of automotive EVPs that allow engine-independent vacuum generation for brake boosters will boost the market during the forecast period. Furthermore, the growing demand for mobility services all over the globe and greater awareness concerning global warming and vehicle safety is driving the adoption of highly fuel-efficient vehicles equipped with automotive EVPs.

Increasing Adoption of Electric Vehicles to Boost the Market

Vehicle electrification has fueled innovation in the automotive EVP market. Advanced automotive EVPs help to enhance the overall vehicle performance as they can achieve a high degree of vacuum pressure within a short time. Also, modern automotive EVPs for EVs are designed to be barely audible when driving with an excellent structure-borne noise insulation system and low air-borne noise emissions. Also, manufacturers are increasing expenditure on R&D activities to reduce the use of IC engines in hybrid vehicles and examine the performance of automotive electric vacuum pumps under harsh temperatures. For example, HEVs electric vacuum pump allows all-electric motion with the ICE switched off.

However, the power braking function is fully operational as in conventional IC engine vehicles. Hence the electric vacuum pump enables the vehicle to run in coasting mode and with additional fuel savings owing to reduced drivetrain resistance.


Malfunctioning of EVP and Durability Problems with Pumps

The failure of automotive EVPs leads to issues regarding the pressing of the brake pedal and insufficient generation of vacuum. OEM pumps work without a problem for a short time as they are not intended to be used in an oily environment. Some modifications are necessary to make these pumps compatible with oil. The components of the pump are designed for oil-free air cooling.  Rapid enhancements in mechanical pumps, such as delivering higher braking force and improvement of vacuum-free braking systems, are some of the factors expected to restrain the growth of this market. For example, General Motors is working towards the adoption of vacuum-free braking systems for its pick-up trucks. ZF Friedrichshafen has developed a vacuum independent integrated brake control system that simplifies the architecture of the braking system while improving performance capabilities.
