Turbocharger upgrades support greater engine efficiency


Recent releases offer minimal turbo lag and up to 40 percent higher engine output.




  • Increased efficiency: R&D efforts at many turbocharger makers in China revolve around upgrading product structures to enhance performance. Several suppliers, for instance, are adopting the variable geometry construction, which can reduce or even eliminate turbo lag.
  • Higher engine power: Releases from domestic enterprises are designed to boost engine power by 20 to 30 percent. Foreign-invested companies such as Honeywell and BorgWarner are developing models that can increase engine output by 30 to 40 percent.
  • Export markets: Many suppliers are focusing efforts on boosting shipments to Europe and the US, where many midpriced and upscale vehicles are manufactured. Fuel efficiency and emission requirements in these areas are also stimulating demand.
  • Price & sales projections: Product quotes are expected to remain stable in 2H12. Overseas revenue, on the other hand, is anticipated to rise 15 to 20 percent amid the various government regulations encouraging the adoption of turbochargers.
