Report Description


The active grill shutter is a system that helps improve fuel efficiency, it also protects the front end of the vehicle from a low-speed impact. Active grill shutters open and close automatically to control the flow of air, it opens at the time when engine requires additional air flow otherwise it remains closed. It reduces the aerodynamic drag; owing to this, the engine can quickly reach to its optimum operating temperature. Closed shutters help improve the fuel consumption and reduce carbon emission of the vehicle. Active grill shutters are manufactured from lightweight material, which helps reduce the CO2. Active grill shutters are mostly manufactured from lightweight reinforced thermoplastics, resulting in weight reduction and improved aerodynamic performance. Leading automakers such as Ford, BMW, General Motors, Chrysler, Honda, Lincoln, Mazda, Mercedes, and Rolls-Royce are using active grill shutters. Active grill shutters are almost invisible when they are open.

Increasing demand for fuel-efficiency among consumers and stringent emission norms enacted by regulatory bodies in order to reduce emission impact on the environment are likely to drive the active grill shutters market for automotive during the forecast period.
