Automotive Starter Motors, Alternators, and Ignitions Market Dynamics

The ignition system can be divided into the coil ignition system and the capacitive discharge ignition system. Coil ignition is the most popular system and has the lowest cost compared to others. In terms of ignition coil performance, carmakers demand reliable, smaller units. Multi-valve engines in particular place even greater size limitations on the coil design.

The factors pushing spark plug innovations are the cost of fuel, ignitability, and durability. Fuel cost and government regulations on vehicle emissions and fuel economy are driving engine technology toward smaller displacement engines with higher power density. This is being achieved with direct injection, charge air boosting, and more dilute air-to-fuel ratios. These engine design changes result in the need for smaller-diameter and longer spark plugs that offer improved ignitability through fine wire electrode tip designs. The optimal output and reliable functioning of the engine depend on the spark plug. Therefore, there is a market demand for plugs with greater ignition performance, longer service life, and reduced general dimensions. So, spark plugs are getting a special emphasis in the designing of new engine concepts such as gasoline direct injection.

Key Segments in the Automotive Starter Motors, Alternators, And Ignitions Market

The automotive starter motors, alternators, and ignitions market can be segmented into ignitions, plugs, and starters-alternators.

Ignitions segment in the automotive starter motors, alternators, and ignitions market

An ignition coil is a stimulus that begins the combustion process and uses the voltage from the battery to create an electromagnetic field within the coil. An ignition cable consists of a core, insulation, inner braid or pet non-woven mesh, and outer jacket. Ignition terminals provide the mechanical and electrical connections between the cable core and the spark plugs, distributors, or coils. Other key ignition parts include heat shields and clips, channels, conduits, and other fasteners. China has the highest volumes of gasoline ignition coils fitted to newly-assembled light vehicles in 2022.

Plugs segment in the automotive starter motors, alternators, and ignitions market

Ceramic glow plugs are being developed to meet the forthcoming stricter emission regulations in Europe. These plugs rise to a temperature hotter than the maximum possible with steel glow plugs at a first-rate. The main influences on the design of glow plugs center on the design of the diesel engine itself. Western Europe had the highest volume of diesel glow plugs fitted to newly-assembled light vehicles in 2022.

The spark plug, which is the last step in the ignition circuit, is exposed to the varying periodic processes within the combustion chamber, as well as external climatic conditions. It is made up of an insulator, terminal, ring and packing washer, center shaft stem, gasket, and electrode with copper.

Starters-alternators segment in the automotive starter motors, alternators, and ignitions market

Integrated starter-alternator systems aim to balance out irregularities in the running engine and the drivetrain. An electric starter motor is either a permanent magnet or a series-parallel wound direct current electric motor with a starter solenoid mounted on it. The starter converts electricity into mechanical energy while the alternator turns mechanical energy into alternating current electricity. A bridge rectifier integrated into the alternator converts the three-phase alternating current into direct current which is required to recharge the battery and operate the electrical equipment. Alternator output is directly related to frame size or diameter.
