The demand for highly fuel-efficient automotive systems and increasingly stringent emission standards implemented by governments around the world drives the growth of the gasoline direct injection market. The market is estimated to grow at an exponential rate of over 14% through the forecast period 2021 – 2031.
Adoption of gasoline direct injection systems can be largely accounted for by commercial and passenger vehicles, with major manufacturers such as Ford, BMW, Daimler, and more incorporating relevant technologies in mid to high end gasoline vehicles. Major market players are focused on research towards technology improvements.
Fuel injector systems are estimated to hold major market share owing to the demand for high levels of precision for efficient fuel combustion. Improved control over exhaust emissions and air-fuel mixtures, and real-time monitoring of fuel regulators in terms of delivery pressure will contribute to demand in the long term. This is especially true with the increased incorporation of electronic control units in the automotive sector.
Developments in the industry covering flexibility in multiple input and output channels for better signal transfer will aid in the proliferation of gasoline direct injection systems. Particulate emission reduction research will also gain ground in the near future.
Despite high demand in the industry, market players face a number of challenges that could impact sales and revenue in the coming decade. For instance, gasoline direct injection systems are relatively cost-prohibitive owing to the use of high-pressure parts in the system. Furthermore, post combustion particulate emissions remain a challenge for manufacturers. Also, the growing popularity of electric vehicles in the automotive sector is an obstacle that is likely to hinder sales and revenue generation in the market in terms of long-term market prospects.
Key Takeaways in the Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) Market Study
- The global gasoline direct injection market will rise at around 14% CAGR between 2021 and 2031.
- Rapid growth of automotive production rates in China and India, drives a relatively higher rate of growth in the industry of the Asia Pacific excluding Japan market.
- Steady rise in volume of vehicle production and growing focus on maintenance and aftermarket services have been driving growth in the United States.
- Following a moderate slump, sales are expected to recover in the Germany and France markets, driven by high fuel economy technologies.
- Strict implementation of stage 6 emission standards in terms of new vehicle registrations drive adoption and sales of gasoline direct injection technologies in the United Kingdom.
“The global gasoline direct injection (GDI) system market is projected to witness a high growth rate during the forecast period owing to benefits such as improved engine performance, engine downsizing, high fuel efficiency, thermal efficiency, and major reductions in emission volumes, which will continue to gain traction with the imposition of increasingly stringent regulations,” says the FMI analyst.
Who is Winning?
The global gasoline direct injection market is moderately fragmented with a number of regional players contributing to the industry. Major players in the market are likely to invest extensively in new technologies and research & development efforts to consolidate their market position.
The gasoline direct injection market is expected to grow exponentially during 2021 to 2031. As a rapidly growing market, companies are likely to gain impetus from changes arising from strict emission standards and regulations being implemented around the world.
