Global automotive supercharger market by product
- Twin-screw supercharger
- Centrifugal supercharges
Centrifugal supercharger, helps in compressing the air inside the case of the supercharger using an impeller. The air is then discharged out of a scroll to the motor. The design is similar to turbo-charging except that these type of superchargers don't use an exhaust to generate the air pressure. They carry out the function similar to that of a supercharger using a belt driven by the crank pulley to rotate the impeller.
In terms of units sold, the global automotive centrifugal superchargers are predicted to grow at a CAGR of over 11% globally. North America is one of the leaders in the centrifugal supercharger market, and is expected to dominate it during the forecast period.
