Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023-2033

Automotive Exhaust System Market size is poised to cross USD 195 Billion by the end of 2033, growing at a CAGR of 6% during the forecast period, i.e., 2023-2033. In the year 2022, the industry size of automotive exhaust system was USD 105 Billion. The growth of the market can primarily be attributed to the growing demand of automotive exhaust system owing to the fact that transportation holds the largest share of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions worldwide. For instance, the transport sector was responsible for ~25% of greenhouse gas emissions in 2020.

Automotive exhaust system collects the exhaust gases from the cylinders, removes harmful substances, and reduces the level of noise. It also discharges the purified exhaust gases at an appropriate point of the vehicle away from its occupants. Depending on the engine, the automotive exhaust system can consist of one or two channels. With every internal combustion engine producing the exhaust noise as well as stringent policies regarding the noise limits, the demand for automotive exhaust systems is on the rise amongst the automobile manufacturers, which in turn, is expected to create massive revenue generation opportunities for the key players operating in the global automotive exhaust system market during the forecast period. For instance, as per the Environment Protection Rules 1986 (EPR), the noise limits of all passenger and commercial vehicles at the manufacturing stage should range from 81 dB to 90 dB.

Automotive Exhaust System: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Rising Emission from Passenger Vehicle - several components of exhaust system work together to provide a conduit for exhaust gases to exit the engine by making their way out beneath the vehicle with a reduced exhaust noise. The rising vehicular emission is expected to boost the automotive exhaust market in the forecasted period. For instance, an average passenger vehicle emits nearly 400 grams of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) per mile.
  • Growing Urban Pollution – for instance, it was estimated that, traffic was responsible for around 25% of urban ambient air pollution from fine particulate matter (PM2.5) in 2019.
  • Increasing Registrations of Diesel Cars – for instance, ~30 % of new passenger cars registered in European Union in were diesel powered.
  • Growing Number of Vehicles – for instance, China being the largest holder of the fleet of motor vehicles in the world, has ~300 million motor vehicles, excluding two-wheelers in 2022.


  • Stringent Government Emission Norms & Exhaust System Policy
  • Surge in the Demand of Electric Vehicles
  • Low Awareness About the Emission Ill-effects Amongst the Populace
