Honeywell Projects North American Market For Turbo Sales To Increase 67 Percent To 6.5 Million By 2018

PLYMOUTH, Mich., Oct. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Honeywell (NYSE: HON) Turbo Technologies, the leading global developer of automotive turbochargers, expects sales of turbocharged commercial and passenger vehicles in North America to increase by 67 percent during the next five years reflecting the addition of 2.6 million more turbocharged vehicles on the road during that time.

Honeywell estimates current penetration of turbocharged commercial and passenger vehicles is currently at 17 percent of vehicle sales in North America and expects that number to increase to 31 percent of total sales by 2018. This dramatic growth curve led the EPA to recently project that 90 percent of new vehicles in the U.S. market could be turbocharged by 2025.

"Honeywell's turbo technologies will be part of more than 60 models in the United States in 2014 reflecting nearly 20 different brands," said Honeywell Transportation Systems President and CEO Terrence Hahn. "We see the U.S. market growing this year by approximately 22 percent from last year reflecting the addition of some 700,000 new turbocharged vehicles in 2013. Downsized turbocharged engines are a no compromise solution for consumers demanding great fuel economy and performance with the added benefit of reducing harmful emissions."

In 2025, the Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) regulations take full effect, requiring all new cars and trucks to achieve an average fuel economy of 54.5 miles per gallon. Given this objective, Honeywell estimates the number of turbocharged commercial and passenger vehicles sold in North America will reach 3.9 million in 2013, up from 3.2 million in 2012. By 2018, Honeywell expects the number to reach 6.5 million vehicles.

The U.S. is part of the turbo revolution Honeywell envisions will continue globally with demand growing in all regions:

  • In Europe, Honeywell expects turbo gasoline applications to grow significantly by 2018 driving the light vehicle market to nearly 67 percent turbo penetration.
  • In China, Honeywell expects turbo penetration to double from today's 4 million to more than 10 million vehicles by 2018 driven largely by gasoline applications.
  • In India, Honeywell expects a turbo penetration increase from 46 percent today to 48 percent by 2018 with a focus on small diesel engine applications.
  • On a global basis, turbo penetration is expected to grow from 30 percent in 2012 covering all segments to 38 percent by 2018.

Each year Honeywell launches on average 100 new turbo applications globally. Currently, Honeywell has more than 500 programs in its product development pipeline while working with nearly every major global manufacturer.
