Report : EGR Cooler Market Forecast to 2027 - Covid-19 Impact and Global Analysis by Type (Tube EGR Coolers and Finned EGR Coolers); Engine Type (Diesel Engine and Gasoline Engine); Vehicle Type (Passenger Vehicles and Commercial Vehicles)
Exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) helps increase fuel-efficiency and reduce emissions as well as engines’ power output by circulating toxic gasses back to the combustion chamber for further combustion. Multiple emission norms set up by governments and various organizations, such as Environment Protection Agency (EPA) in North America, EURO 6 in European Union, and Bharat Stage Emission Standards in India, compel vehicle manufacturers meet the regional gas emission standards. These standards focus on lowering the nitrogen monoxide (NO), carbon dioxide (CO2), particulate matter (PM), and no methane hydrocarbons (NMHC) emissions, among others. The emission standards have encouraged to the invention of new technologies, aiming to reduce the emission of harmful gasses from vehicles’ combustion engines. EGR is one of the techniques being used to comply with these emission standards. Apart from recirculating the toxic gasses for combustion, EGR systems also help distribute some portion of them back to the engine, which in turn burns less fuel and emits lower volumes of toxic gasses. The forced induction of compressed air accomplished in the combustion chamber, which leaves very little or no unburnt fuel in the combustion chamber, thus reducing the emission of harmful gasses.
Further, the Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFÉ) standards that determine the average fuel economy obtained by a vehicle also aid the growth of the EGR market. The CAFÉ standards mandate all the auto manufacturers to manufacture a variety of trucks and cars that, together, set average fuel consumption. These standards are generally met by turbocharging, exhaust gas recirculation, and downsizing vehicle engines, which, in turn, reduces the vehicles’ overall weight, a factor that directly correlates with fuel-efficiency.
