Fluid Control and Conveyance Advancements for Electrified Vehicles

2022 Report and Updates

As electrified powertrains are further developed, fluid systems continue to play an important role. Improved fluid control reduces energy losses for extending electric powertrain range, supporting rapid charging, and reducing fuel consumption. Fluid control performance improvement is important, but cost, mass and space reduction are also critical. As electrified vehicle applications grow, fluid systems are being refined to improve value. This report assesses state-of-the-art and new developments for oil, coolant, and refrigerant flow such as:

  • Market volume and growth rates (2022-2032) for selected components and sub-systems
  • Technology roadmaps by market, powertrain, fluid, and selected segments
  • The economic value of fluid pump, valve, and conveyance technologies
  • Supply chain analysis of 100+ fluid pump/valve/line suppliers
  • Partnership, merger and acquisition trends
  • Who is innovating and how

This research investigates the directions OEMs and suppliers are taking to improve fluid system value. An important aspect of fluid control improvement involves algorithmic changes. Better fluid system integration offers reduced complexity and leak paths for higher function designs and cost reduction. In parallel, there is significant development occurring to improve architectures, components, materials, and actuators. In the report, organizational barriers and opportunities associated with these technology shifts will be explored.
