Fluid Control Advancements for Conventional and Electrified Vehicles

Increasing System Value Through Pumps and Valves

As electric powertrains are developed and conventional vehicles are improved, fluid control continues play an important role. Fundamentally, improved fluid control reduces energy losses for reduced fuel consumption, extending electric powertrain range, and supporting rapid charging, while ensuring system reliability. Improved performance supports regulatory compliance and improves vehicle marketability. Fluid control offers high value for conventional vehicle fuel consumption. For electrified powertrain fluid control, performance improvement is also important, but cost reduction is critical. This new report analyzes evolving pump and valve technology and market dynamics such as:

  • The economic value of 26 fluid pump and valve technologies
  • Market volume and growth rates (2020-2030) for each pump/valve segment
  • Technology roadmaps by market, powertrain, and segment
  • Who is innovating and how
  • Partnership, merger and acquisition trends
  • Supply chain analysis of 90 pump and valve suppliers

This report assesses state-of-the-art and new developments for oil, coolant, and refrigerant flow control. Fluid circuits are being stratified to provide more precise control of flow, pressure, and temperature. There are significant synergies between pumps and valves, and circuit integration offers opportunities to improve performance as a lower cost. Component integration is also an important theme for cost reduction. The opportunities and challenges vary across powertrain type. Limited, but significant changes are being made for conventional powertrains. For electrified vehicle powertrains, pumps and valves are integral to thermal control which improves efficiency, and reduces package size, mass, and cost. In this report, organizational barriers and opportunities associated with these technology shifts are explored. Powertrain hydraulic system pumps and valves are critical for:

  • Reducing energy losses
  • Waste heat recovery
  • Keeping systems cool to maintain functionality
  • Improving cost efficiency
