    Boost Everything - Domestic turbo automotive market set to double in the next five years with global numbers reaching 49 million by 2019

    Boost, boost, and more boost. That is what is in store for the automotive marketplace in the next decade. Honeywell, the largest supplier of turbochargers in the world, states that by 2019 over 49 million vehicles will be equipped with turbochargers annually and that the industry will generate over $12 billion dollars of revenue annually.

    BoostAddict likes the sound of that! What is driving this growth? Well, not us horsepower fanatics but tightening global emissions regulations which means smaller and cleaner motors. Turbocharging of course helps these smaller motors generate greater horsepower and torque without having to increase cubic inches dramatically.

    Domestic turbocharged automotive sales alone are expected to nearly double in the next five years. Ford did what was once unthinkable and stuck a turbocharged four-cylinder under the hood of the Mustang which has received a favorable reception thus far. Even Ferrari is joining the turbo bandwagon.

    Boost is the future gentlemen.

    • U.S. adding turbos at double-digit rate: As the second-fastest-growing global market, North America’s turbo market will grow by 14 percent per year in the next five years to more than 8 million total turbocharged vehicles by 2019, equating to 38 percent of the market.


    • Europe adding gas turbos to world’s largest turbodiesel fleet: Turbo penetration in Europe is already the highest globally and will grow 2 percent by 2019 from 67 percent to 69 percent with an expected 16 million total turbocharged vehicles sold each year.


    • Turbo mix in India to shift toward more gas applications: Honeywell projects turbo penetration to increase 2 percent, from 46 percent in 2014 to 48 percent in 2019, with the total number of turbocharged vehicles sold each year approaching 3 million units.


    • Japan adding turbos despite expected decline in overall sales: Honeywell projects turbo penetration will increase by 5 percent from 18 percent in 2014 to 23 percent, reflecting annual sales of 1.3 million turbocharged vehicles by 2019.


    • Korea turbo penetration outpacing production: Honeywell projects turbo penetration to increase by 3 percent from 42 percent in 2014 to 45 percent, reflecting annual sales approaching 1 million turbocharged vehicles in 2019.


    • South America adding turbo technologies to mix: Honeywell projects turbo penetration to increase by 7 percent from 17 percent in 2014 to 24 percent, reflecting annual sales approaching 2 million turbocharged vehicles in 2019.

    Why sad? Good for business.

    Bad for enthusiasts who love cars like the 458 and GT3 though.

    My daily driver 1.5 liter ecoboost 4 cylinder ford fusion has surprising drivability ....its no sports car but it has enough power to get around traffic/highway driving and gets 32.5 mpg. Turbo's are definitely the future. Diesel figured that out a long time ago....gasoline motors will be the same.

    Diesel motors tend to need the turbo boost far more.

    Yeah diesel engines love boost and they happen to already be built strong enough for boost because of the nature of the diesel cycle.
