Dublin, Aug. 31, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Tappet Market (2023-2028) by Product Type, Vehicle Type, Engine Capacity, End User, and Geography, Competitive Analysis, Impact of Covid-19 and Ansoff Analysis" report has been added to's offering.

The global Tappet market is poised for robust expansion, with an estimated value of USD 8.63 billion in 2023, projected to reach USD 10.75 billion by 2028, exhibiting a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 4.49% during the forecast period.

Market Overview

Tappets, also known as cam followers, play a crucial role in internal combustion engines by converting camshaft rotational motion into vertical movement to control the opening and closing of engine valves. This precise valve timing impacts engine performance, efficiency, and power generation.

Market Dynamics

Increased consumer interest in high-performance automobiles is driving the demand for enhanced engine components like tappets. High-performance vehicles require resilient engine parts like tappets to withstand higher loads while optimizing power production. To cater to this demand, manufacturers are developing innovative tappet solutions, contributing to market growth.

The industrial sector's growth is also contributing to tappet demand, as sturdy and reliable machinery is required. Tappets find applications in various industrial equipment, including construction machinery, generators, and agricultural gear, where precise valve movement ensures efficient engine operation.

Market Segmentations

The market is segmented based on Product Type (Flat Tappet, Roller Tappet), Vehicle Type (Heavy Commercial Vehicle, Light Duty Vehicle), Engine Capacity (< 4 Cylinder, 4-6 Cylinder, > 6 Cylinder), and End User (Economic Passenger Cars, Luxury Passenger Cars, Mid-Priced Passenger Cars).

Roller tappets dominate the market due to their superior performance and durability, reducing friction and wear, enhancing engine efficiency and lifespan. In terms of vehicle type, Light Duty Vehicles (LDVs) hold a significant market share, given their higher sales volume. Among engine capacity categories, 4-6 cylinder engines are preferred for their balance between performance and fuel efficiency. Mid-priced passenger cars lead the end-user segment due to their broad appeal.

Recent Developments
