Global Spark Plug Market to Grow at 4.80% During 2021-2026, Impelled by Significant Growth in Automotive Sector

Published on Aug 27, 2021

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Spark Plug Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026," the global spark plug market experienced moderate growth during 2015-2020. A spark plug is an electrical device that is threaded into the cylinder of a spark ignition engine. It commonly consists of a shell, resistance, electrodes, and insulator, wherein the shell is electrically isolated from the central electrode by a porcelain insulator. It is further connected to the output terminal of a magneto or ignition coil with the help of a heavily insulated wire. These devices are widely utilized for producing a spark that aids in igniting the fuel-air mixture in the cylinder bore of the engine at the required time. Consequently, they form an integral component of the automotive ignition system and in numerous marine and aerospace applications.  

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 Spark Plug Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by considerable growth in the automotive sector. Spark plugs are widely utilized in petrol-based passenger vehicles to propel the ignition systems, thereby providing a boost to the market growth. Moreover, spark plugs are also increasingly utilized in numerous marine, electrical and aerospace applications as a crucial component in recreational boats, jet skis, and gasoline and natural gas powered-generators. This, along with the increasing adoption of miniaturized engines, is expected to provide an impetus to the market growth. The market is further driven by the introduction of platinum and iridium-based cold spark plugs that are extensively employed in high-performance engines in an attempt to produce minimal carbon emissions. Also, various key players are launching advanced product variants that are expected to gain widespread prominence in the market. Variants with plasma core and advanced corona ignition systems (ACIS) assist in minimizing noise, smoke emission and vibrations in diesel engines, which is creating a positive outlook for the market. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to grow at 4.8-0% during 2021-2026.
