The technologies in automotive turbocharger have undergone significant change in recent years, with exhaust gas turbocharger to low exhaust emission turbocharger. The rising wave of new technology, such as Variable Geometry Turbocharger (VGT) is creating significant potential for the automotive turbocharger due to low emission of exhaust, the lower volumetric displacement of the turbo engine, frictional, and lesser thermal losses.

In automotive turbocharger market, various technologies are used which include variable geometry turbocharger (VGT)/variable nozzle turbocharger (VNT), wastegate, and twin turbo. Increasing trends towards engine downsizing, stringent government emission norms for fuel efficiency, growth in vehicle production, and consumer concerns about fuel efficiency are creating opportunities for various automotive turbocharger technologies.
