Global Automotive Homogenous Charge Compression Ignition (HCCI) Market 2017-2021
About Automotive Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition (HCCI)
A homogenous charge compression ignition is the new form of an automotive ignition system, wherein the well-balanced mixture of air and fuel is compressed to the optimum point of automatic ignition. This ignition system combines the performance characteristics of the gasoline engine and diesel engine, thereby delivering the power output and reduced carbon emissions of a gasoline engine and the higher fuel efficiency of the diesel engine.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global automotive homogeneous charge compression ignition market to grow at a CAGR of 17.34% during the period 2017-2021.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Automotive Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition (HCCI) Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automotive homogeneous charge compression ignition market 2017-2021: Mazda Motor, Nissan Motor, Infiniti, Hyundai Motor, and General Motors.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Volkswagen, and Daimler.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is development of DiesOtto by Mercedes-Benz. The global automotive powertrain industry is witnessing rapid developments in the field of engine technology. The leading automakers are developing energy-efficient engine technologies for diesel- and gasoline-powered vehicles.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is compatibility of HCCI engines with alternative fuels. The practical applications of the HCCI engines in modern vehicles are yet to be commercialized in the modern vehicles. However, the proven benefits, such as engine performance, fuel efficiency, and exhaust emissions from the prototypes, have made this technology popular. Due to these advantages, an increasing number of automakers are investing heavily in commercializing this technology.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is inefficiency in control of ignition timing and temperature. The automotive HCCI systems have immense scope for commercial applications. However, these systems have a few operational limitations. These limitations are mostly related to the efficient control and functioning of the engine in terms of the combustion process. The HCCI engines perform uniform combustion without the generation of an ignition flame.
