Superchargers and turbochargers have been deployed on internal combustion engines (ICE) since the early years of the twentieth century. They have remained in use on heavy commercial vehicle diesel engines, although they went out of fashion for many years on gasoline engines until a resurgence during the 1970s when they were used to increase power output. More recently, with increasing pressure to improve fuel efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the technology has been applied to enable engine downsizing while maintaining similar power output. This second-edition report examines the current market drivers affecting this sector, including fuel economy and CO2 emissions, engine downsizing and criterion emissions. Market dynamics and forecasts for light-, medium- and heavy-duty engines are included, as well as a detailed section on the latest technologies in this sector. The report also considers the future of turbocharging and features the major market participants.
