Global Spark Plug Category - Procurement Market Intelligence Report

About Spark Plug Market

Spark plugs are essential components of ignition systems in engines and industrial generators. A spark plug consists of two electrodes that are separated by an air gap. On initiating ignition, current travels across the air gap, producing a spark that ignites the air-fuel mixture present in the engine. Hence, spark plugs initiate the combustion process and provide vehicles with ignition for running engines. T

he core function of a spark plug is the production of spark in an engine, and it also serves the function of heat dissipation when the engine is operating. The efficiency of spark plugs decides mileage and the level of carbon emissions from engines. Spark plugs are primarily of three types, based on the material used in the electrode, namely copper, platinum, and iridium.
