Global Automotive Ignition System Market to Reach US$ 11.3 Billion by 2027, Propelled by Surging Vehicle Sales

Published on Sep 09, 2022

IMARC Group’s latest report, titled “Automotive Ignition System Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the global automotive ignition system market size reached US$ 7.1 Billion in 2021. Automotive ignition systems are used in automobiles to produce an electric spark or heat to ignite the compressed fuel-air mixture within the combustion chamber. The burning of this mixture in the cylinders generates the motive force. Some commonly used ignition methods in these systems are compression, simultaneous, and coil-on-plug (COP) ignition. They comprise an ignition switch, ignition coil, distributor, high tension cable, and spark plug. The high voltage current supplied to the spark plugs in the engine cylinders creates electric sparks in the gaps between spark plugs to generate heat, which powers the vehicle. As a result, automotive ignition systems are widely employed in petrol engine vehicles, including passenger cars, motorcycles, and light and heavy commercial vehicles (L/HCVs).

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Automotive Ignition System Market Trends:

The surging vehicle sales due to inflating consumer expenditure capacities and rapid urbanization represents the primary factor driving the market growth. Additionally, there has been a significant shift toward ignition systems that offer improved operational efficiency and fuel economy due to the growing environmental consciousness among individuals. In line with this, the rising adoption of laser ignition systems is positively influencing market growth. Besides this, the introduction of supportive government policies to manage the levels of carbon emissions into the environment has accelerated the product adoption rate. Furthermore, the leading players are developing innovative product variants, such as electronic ignition systems integrated with sensors, switches, and transistors, that provide enhanced horsepower levels, better mileage, and a more accurate and reliable flow of current than traditional mechanical systems. Along with this, numerous technological advancements, such as the rapid electrification of the automotive industry, have propelled the market growth. Other factors, including the expanding automotive sector, rising automobile production, and ongoing research and development (R&D) activities, are also creating a favorable market outlook. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 11.3 Billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 7.87% during 2022-2027.
