Automotive Fuel Transfer Pumps Market
Trends, Segmentation, Key Players And
The automotive fuel transfer pump is an integral part of a vehicle, as it is employed for
transmission, lubrication, and transfer of the fuel to the engine. Unlike before, such pumps are
now being used for the overall improvement of automobiles’ performance, especially their
fuel efficiency. Pumps use electrical or mechanical energy to push the fuel into the
combustion chamber of the engine. With the increasing focus on reducing the rate of
environmental degradation, manufacturers are coming up with more-efficient pumps, which
adhere to the vehicular emission norms of governments worldwide.
Automobile manufacturers are integrating technologies such as power steering, automatic
transmission, gasoline direct injection, and gasoline turbochargers, along with efficient
automotive fuel transfer pumps, for enhanced the driving experience and complying with
The sale of electrical automotive fuel transfer pumps is more than the mechanical ones.
This is due to the benefits offered by electrical pumps, majorly higher durability, enhanced
pressure regulation, and less susceptibility to wear and tear. These features enhance the
efficiency and performance of the pump, thereby making it more popular than the mechanical
pumps. The increasing deployment of electrical pumps by the automobile industry is also due
to the increasing awareness about these variants.
Further, the pump type segment of the automotive fuel transfer pumps market is categorized
into fuel supply, engine oil, vacuum, transmission oil, fuel injection, and others. The fuel
supply pump category held the maximum share in the market in 2015, as these components
are mostly used in passenger cars, which account for over 70% of the vehicles produced in the
world. Fuel supply pumps are installed just outside the fuel tank, to transfer the required
amount of fuel from the tank to the eng
