Research and Markets: Technology Analysis of Advanced Exhaust Heat Recovery Systems in Passenger Cars

Wednesday, Oct 28, 2015

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Technology Analysis of Advanced Exhaust Heat Recovery Systems in Passenger Cars" report to their offering.

Exhaust heat recovery (EHR) is a promising approach to reducing fuel consumption of future vehicles powered by internal combustion engines. Besides reducing exhaust emissions, EHR concepts focus on improving the use of primary energy. Irrespective of displacement, contemporary internal combustion engines convert less than 40% of the fuel energy used into mechanical energy. In low-load urban driving cycles, efficiency can fall below 20%.

This study provides a strategic overview of EHR technologies in the passenger vehicle market in Europe and North America, including key R&D trends, market drivers and restraints, and adoption goals. Other objectives include analysing disruptive technology alerts and market direction by OEM from 2015 to 2022.

Key Questions this Study will Answer

- What are the advantages and considerations (e.g., cost of system, integration issues, CO2 emission levels, and efficiency gain) that OEMs weigh before adopting EHR systems?

- What is the systems introduction strategy for key OEMs in Europe and North America and what are their preferred technologies?

- How will these technologies penetrate different segments in key global OEM line-ups for Europe and North America?

- What are the pertinent indices to measure the performance of these systems? How will these systems evolve over the coming years to match the market demands?
