Been Blown Lately? If You've Got a Supercharger, You're Part of a Market Headed Toward Nearly $11 Billion, Report Says

When it comes to being blown, size apparently does matter—market size, that is. A market research report released recently by MarketsAndMarkets, a firm based in Pune, Maharashtra, India, the global automotive superchargers space will have a market size of $10.95 billion by the year 2025.

The report also sizes the supercharger market at $7.26 billion as of 2017, according to a statement from MarketsAndMarkets announcing the report. The automotive supercharger market is also projected to grow at a rate of more than 5 percent annually, the company states. 

Of course, since superchargers are not relevant to electric vehicles, if the report is accurate, it's just another piece of evidence that speculation about the near-term demise of the internal combustion engine is premature indeed.
