Global Automotive Start-stop System Market 2018-2022
About Automotive Start-Stop System
Start-stop system is an anti-idling technology on most modern cars which automatically shuts off the engine when the car is stationary to reduce fuel consumption and emissions. This system immediately restarts the engine again when the brake is released, or the clutch is engaged. It is available in almost all hybrid vehicles, but recently it has also been introduced in conventional gasoline and diesel vehicles.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global automotive start-stop system market to grow at a CAGR of 19.82% during the period 2018-2022.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global automotive start-stop system market for 2018-2022. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from automotive start-stop system.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Automotive Start-Stop System Market 2018-2022
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automotive start-stop system market: Continental, Delphi Automotive*, DENSO, Robert Bosch, and Valeo
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Emergence of start-stop coasting hybrid technology. Usually, combustion engines are needlessly kept on for about one-third of the time while driving, which includes idling. To avoid this, Bosch has developed a new start-stop coasting technology that helps to drive vehicles in a zero emission and low-resistance mode. It cuts off the engine when the vehicle can maintain a minimum speed by making use of inertia (for example, while moving on a gentle downslope).”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Increasing demand for fuel-efficient vehicles. An efficient powertrain system, such as a start-stop system, optimizes the engine's output and ensures better fuel efficiency. Fuel prices have been increasing rapidly in recent years, which has expedited the need for fuel-efficient start-stop systems. Also, fuel economy norms implemented by regulatory bodies across different countries in the world impel OEMs to focus on start-stop systems for better fuel efficiency. Start-stop systems allow enhanced fuel efficiency and enable fuel cost savings by stopping the engine during the red traffic signals or heavy-traffic situations.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Frequent start and shutdown of engines reduces engine life. During daily peak hour traffic, the number of times an engine starts and stops increase significantly, which can lead to premature wear of the engine. In traffic situations where vehicles move inch by inch, the frequency is higher. In such cases, the components of the engine tend to wear out faster, and its durability is adversely affected in the long run. Also, frequent start-stop motions can cause jerks and annoy drivers.
