LONDON--()--Technavio’s latest report on the global motorcycle supercharger market provides an analysis of the most important trends expected to impact the market outlook from 2017-2021. Technavio defines an emerging trend as a factor that has the potential to significantly impact the market and contribute to its growth or decline.

Siddharth Jaiswal, a lead analyst from Technavio, specializing in research on automotive components sector, says, “The high-volume sales of performance and sports bikes in the developed economies of Europe, the US, Canada, and Japan drive the market growth with their offerings of supercharged motorcycles. The increase in the number of regulations on high fuel economy and emission limits will also fuel the market growth for superchargers.”

One of the biggest advantages that the supercharger enjoys over the turbocharger is the reduction in lag. The turbocharger is primarily driven by exhaust gases, wherein the turbocharger's turbine rolls up before it begins to turn the compressor's impeller. This results in lag time that is defined by the time needed for the turbine to reach to the full throttle from an intermediate rotational speed state.

The top three emerging trends driving the global motorcycle supercharger market according to Technavio research analysts are:

Development of ultimate roadster with superior power output

The global motorcycle industry is evolving rapidly with the increase in innovations and improvements in the industry. The growing popularity of racing and performance motorcycles has progressively made way for the integration of performance boosting systems in motorcycles.

The integration of forced induction systems in motorcycles result in significant improvements in the power output of the motorcycle and help in reducing carbon emission levels. Some of the leading motorcycle manufacturers have leveraged their expertise with advanced forced induction systems to manufacture powerful motorcycles,” according to Siddharth.

Development of electric superchargers boosting torque for faster acceleration

The coming-of-age automotive technology has resulted in the development of technologically advanced systems and components. The industry shift toward electrification, which involves the increasing use of an electronic content per vehicle or motorcycle, has resulted in a significantly higher efficiency of the systems with more precision and accuracy.

There have been several advances in the field of supercharging technology and other fields of forced induction systems. One such prominent development in the field of superchargers is the advent of Controlled Power Technologies (CPT) in electric superchargers.

Development of multistage supercharging system with exhaust gas turbocharger

The global automotive industry is moving toward engine downsizing with the advent of stringent norms and regulations for higher fuel efficiency and reduced carbon emissions. The industry shift has resulted in significantly higher fuel economy with minimum power difference, owing to the integration of forced induction technologies in the engine.

The automotive industry is witnessing an integration of multistage supercharging, which significantly increases the drivability or rideability and results in torque enhancement. OEMs are developing advanced two-stage or three-stage supercharging, which is expected to be a major trend in the global automotive supercharger market during the forecast period.

The key vendors are as follows:

  • Ducati
  • Honda Motor Company
  • Kawasaki Motors Corporation
  • Bimota
