Global Automotive Aftermarket for Spark Plugs 2017-2021

About Automotive Aftermarket for Spark Plugs

A spark plug is an important component of a vehicle that is screwed into the engine cylinder. It generates a spark that ignites the compressed air-fuel mixture, which ensures the continuous movement of the piston. There has been an increased demand for fuel-efficient and low-emission vehicles because of the stringent emission norms adopted across all economies and the growing awareness about environmental issues among consumers. This has led to the continuous evolution of spark plugs.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Automotive Aftermarket for Spark Plugs 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automotive aftermarket for spark plugs: Bosch, DENSO, and Valeo.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Autolite, Federal Mogul, HELLA, Magneti Marelli, and NGK Spark Plugs.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is growing preference for platinum and iridium spark plugs. There has been a growing preference for platinum and iridium spark plugs among OEMs. The demand has also been witnessed in the lower segment vehicles too. Earlier, platinum and iridium spark plugs were mainly used in luxury segment, however now it is being adopted in the mass-selling vehicles too.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is rise in the demand for direct-injection vehicles will lead to early replacement of spark plugs. In gasoline-direct injection (GDI) engines, the air-fuel mixture is directly formed in the combustion chamber. The high-pressure fuel pump injects the fuel along with the incoming fresh air into the combustion chamber. The GDI engines operate at high-pressure of up to 200 bars. Earlier, gasoline engines were port engines, but gradually there has been increasing inclination toward the use of the direct injections due to fuel economy benefits and reduction in carbon emission and growing stringent emission norms.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is rise in the sales for battery electric vehicles. The rise in the sales of battery electric vehicles is a deterrent for the automotive aftermarket for spark plugs market because spark plugs are not used in the battery electric vehicles. The sales of the battery electric vehicles started peaking since 2014. In 2016, there were multiple factors that influenced the sales of battery electric vehicles. The most important factor was the intent of the government to promote sales of battery electric vehicles. The governments across the globe nurture the battery electric vehicles market to curb carbon emission.
