Automotive engines are commonly classified into two major categories – gasoline engines, and diesel engines. Spark plugs are installed in the cylinders of gasoline engines, while glow plugs are used in cylinders of diesel engines to ensure sufficient heating during the cold start, by a heating coil.
Technological advancements, like E3 high-performance, plasma core, and ACIS (Advanced Corona Ignition System) in designing spark plugs have acted as one of the factors responsible for growth in the spark plug market. Hyundai and Delphi together built an efficient GDCI, a gas engine needing no spark plugs, which can influence the market significantly in the near future.
The automotive spark plug market growth is influenced by a number of factors, such as increasing automotive production, stringent emission norms, and rising demand for higher fuel efficiency. Manufacturers making long-term contracts with suppliers to reduce production costs is another factor, which will fuel the growth of the market. Engine downsizing, and increasing replacement interval for spark plugs are some of the notable trends observed in the market.
