Global Automotive Ignition Coil Market 2017-2021

Global Automotive Ignition Coil Market 2017-2021

About Automotive Ignition Coil

An ignition coil, also known as a spark coil, transforms the battery's low voltage to high voltage, which is required to produce the electric discharge in spark plugs to ignite the fuel. Few coils will have an internal resistor, while others rely on an external resistor to limit the current flow in the coil. Spark plug wires are those that connect the ignition coil and the distributor, and the high voltage wire connects the distributor to each spark plug. Earlier, mechanical contact breaker points and a capacitor were required for ignition coil systems.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global automotive ignition coil market to grow at a CAGR of 5.10% during the period 2017-2021.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Automotive Ignition Coil Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automotive ignition coil market: Delphi Automotive, Bosch, Federal-Mogul, and DENSO.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Standard Motor Products, NGK Spark Plugs, ZF Friedrichshafen, and Prenco Progress & Engineering.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is growing demand for pencil ignition coil due to its compact size and compatibility. A pencil ignition coil uses full electronic ignition and is attached directly to the spark plug. With this arrangement, a high voltage pulse is generated directly at the spark plug. The advantage of using a pencil ignition coil is there is no cable loss. Its compact design is compatible with almost all engines.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is impact of Volkswagen emissions scandal on diesel vehicle sales. The Volkswagen emissions scandal of 2015, also known as dieselgate, had a significant impact on passenger car diesel market in the US. Volkswagen had intentionally programmed the turbocharger direct injection (TDI) diesel engines to some activate emission controls during the laboratory emissions test to comply with US standards. However, these standards were not met in real-world conditions. The Environment Protection Agency (EPA) released a notice to Volkswagen for violating the Clean Air Act in 2016.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is growing need for compact ignition coils due to engine downsizing. Engine downsizing is the process of integrating a smaller engine in a vehicle that can deliver the equivalent power of a larger engine by using technologies such as a turbocharger or supercharger and direct injection technology. This is carried out by reducing the capacity of the engine and the number of cylinders. Engine downsizing is becoming increasingly important as it helps improve the fuel efficiency and reduce carbon emissions. A smaller engine capacity helps in reducing the overall weight of the vehicle, making it more light and agile. Static and dynamic downsizing has been considered a contemporary trend in the development of combustion engines.
