In this report, Technavio highlights the developments in the field of balancer shafts system as one of the key emerging trends to drive the global automotive balance shaft market:
Developments in field of balancer shafts system
The designs and materials used to manufacture automotive balance shafts are undergoing developments. Most in-line cylinder engine configurations involve the use of two balancer shafts. However, automakers have been working on the designs of single-balancer shafts, which can reduce design complexities and help in weight reduction. Manufacturers of automotive balance shafts are providing solutions that combine balancer shafts and oil pumps into one module. For instance, Hitachi’s automotive division, Hitachi Automotive System, offers a new generation of vane-type oil pumps that integrate balancer shafts.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for automotive components research, “The vane-type oil pumps offer compact solutions that help reduce design complexities and offer efficient products to OEMs. Similarly, other automotive balance shaft producers are working on the design of balance shafts, which can be integrated with other systems and components. Such developments augur well for the growth of the market.”
