Market Overview

The global diesel common rail injection system market (CDRI) was valued at USD 20.78 billion in 2018 and is anticipated to register a CAGR of about 2.70% during the forecast period, 2019-2024.

  • Some of the major factors driving the growth of the market are the enactment of stringent emission control norms, especially for commercial vehicles, noise reduction & increased fuel efficiency. However, increasing demand and penetration of electric vehicles in the automotive sector is expected to hinder the growth of the market.
  • The drastic pressure variations in common rail injection systems are expected to reduce the emission of nitrogen dioxide by 50% and enhance fuel efficiency by 3%. For instance, in India, BS IV standards were introduced in 2010, but most commercial vehicles in the market are operating under BS III standards. In 2016, the ministry of petroleum and natural gas stated that the diesel BS IV vehicles contributed 42% of the total vehicle sales in the Indian market, while petrol vehicles contributed 54%.
  • Some of the major companies dominating the market are Robert Bosch, Denso, Delphi Automotive Technologies PLC, and Continental AG; with Robert Bosch being the major player in the market.

Key Market Trends

Growing Demand of Light Commercial Vehicle and Stringent Emission Control Norms, Especially For Commercial Vehicles

Light commercial vehicles, namely vans and pickup trucks, have been considered in the light commercial vehicles segment of the market studied. In 2017, commercial vehicles recorded sales of 25,954,924 unit, with an increase of 6.4% from 2016, of which, the light commercial vehicles sales (vans and pickup trucks) contributed to a higher share of more than 75% of the total commercial vehicle sales.

With the growing environmental concerns, governments, and environment agencies are enacting stringent emission norms and laws, which is expected to result in the decline of diesel engine passenger cars in the coming years.

  • The diesel engine variants of passenger cars have already started experiencing a decline from 2015

As a result, the demand for diesel engines is only expected to witness positive growth from the rise in commercial vehicle sales, owing to the growing construction industry, and significant growth in the logistics industry (primarily, due to the rise in the e-commerce business). For instance, according to Eurostat, over 75% of inland cargo transports within the EU, i.e., about 1,750 billion metric ton-kilometers (tkm), travel by road. In some European countries, this percentage goes as high as 90% or more.

  • As a result, the demand for commercial vehicles has been continually increasing in the region.

Thus, based on the aforementioned positive developments, commercial vehicle manufacturers have to produce vehicles that suffice the emission regulations, and with the growing adoption rate of CDRI technology, the market is expected to witness a boost in the coming years.

Asia-Pacific - Leading the Global Diesel Common Rail Injection System Market

Geographically, Asia-Pacific is leading the global CRDI market followed by North America and Europe. The Asia-Pacific region is majorly driven by countries like China, Japan, and India.

In China, commercial vehicles experienced y/y growth of 13.9% to reach 4.161 million vehicles in 2017. This increase can be attributed to compact diesel vehicles meeting the China 5 emission standards from January 2018, along with the rising demand for commercial vehicles. Diesel demand in China was increased by up to 0.5% in 2017, and by 0.8% in 2018, after shrinking by 3.5% in 2016. The diesel demand is increased due to the improvement in mining and industrial activity, commercial vehicle sales, and road freight movements

The demand for diesel common rail injection system is growing in the above country due to numerous factors, such as companies entering into partnerships for developing new products and also manufactures investing in R&D projects. For instance,

  • Dongfeng Automobile Co. Ltd and Delphi jointly developed new China 6 standard DDi23 engine for light-duty trucks. Delphi has offered high-pressure common rail diesel injection systems and post-processing solution to help this engine meet the China 6 emission standard.

Apart from China, the US in the North American region is also expected to witness high demand for diesel common rail injection system, as in the last couple of years, many automakers have introduced various diesel vehicles in the United States, which have been very well received by consumers, and several manufacturers have also announced their plans to expand their diesel model portfolios. For instance,

  • In 2017, General Motors had announced to offer a new turbodiesel Chevrolet Cruze compact car, and in 2018, it announced to offer a diesel Chevrolet Equinox sport utility vehicle (SUV).

The growing demand for diesel engine and the continuous investment in the engine technology are fueling the market studied, and it is anticipated to grow, over the forecast period.
