APAC Automotive AC Compressor Market size is poised to reach USD 5.25 billion by 2028, according to a latest forecast report by Graphical Research.

The market growth is as a result of the growing production of electric vehicles. As the world transitions to the EV era, vehicle manufacturers are targeting to increase their manufacturing productivity and output. Due to the favorable business outlook for EV manufacturers, automakers are also introducing cost-competitive products and boosting export activities. This development is particularly prevalent in Asia, with countries like China, Japan, and South Korea emerging as major EV manufacturing hubs.

Based on statistics from the General Administration of Customs of China, the rate of passenger EV export increased by 2.6 times to 499,573 units in 2021. The burgeoning export and production of EVs will consequently trigger the growth of the Asia Pacific automotive AC compressor industry. In addition, the implementation of zero-emission mandates is enabling EVs to serve as a powerful tool in reducing carbon dioxide emissions from the transport sector. The presence of EV supportive policies and mandates will thus result in the mounting production of AC compressors for APAC automobile makers.

The automotive industry, however, has been facing immense challenges due to macroeconomic conditions, supply chain disruptions, and shrinking demand for automotive parts in wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite the temporary fallout, the industry is expected to regain momentum in the upcoming years, owing to the introduction of funds and tax reliefs. Subsequently, this could positively impact the productivity of automotive AC compressors and other peripheral sectors.

The passenger cars segment is emerging as a key driver of AC compressor acceptance, given the strong government focus on the decarbonization of passenger vehicle fleets in Asia. Based on data from Autocar Professional, 6,261 electric passenger vehicles (PVs) were sold from April to September 2021 in India, representing a 234% hike year-on-year. This strong momentum of electric PV sales is presenting growth opportunities for the automotive AC compressor manufacturers in the Asia Pacific.

Due to excellent efficiency, lightweight, and reliability, fixed displacement compressors are gaining immense popularity as the standard for vehicle AC compressors.

Several auto industry experts are in favor of the belt drive compressors since they can ensure frictionless and efficient operations through proper lubrication. However, growing concerns regarding the need to repair and replace belts over time are creating a major hindrance to their acceptance in automotive AC compressors.
