DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Automotive Starter Motors, Alternators and Ignitions Market and Trend Analysis by Technology, Key Companies and Forecast, 2021-2036" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The report provides a comprehensive overview of Starter Motors, Alternators, Ignitions and Plugs including market trends, top markets, shares and forecasts as well as a technical round-up of various related automotive technologies and brief company profiles.

A major trend that has been seen is the gradual emergence of eco-friendly vehicles, which have systems that automatically switch off vehicle engines during idling, however, with increased energy requirements and on the same time is reliable as well.

While stop-start systems have evolved, manufacturers of rotating electrics have also pushed back the technical boundaries of Starter Motors and Alternators. Indeed, the increasing use of power-hungry options in modern passenger cars is placing unprecedented demands on automotive charging systems.

Ignition Systems have in the past been treated as a hang-on part with little new innovative developments to improve the systems. Today, there are basically three categories of ignition systems: Coil Ignition, Capacitive Discharge Ignition, and other types such as AC-Ignition. Coil Ignition is the most popular system.

There is a clear trend toward increasing energy requirements driven partly by more direct injection gasoline applications and emissions regulations. There is a direct relationship between the spark energy requirement and the in-cylinder pressure, prior to ignition.

More aggressive combustion strategies for fuel economy improvement are enabled by direct injection and increasing the compression ratio is also beneficial for fuel economy. This is leading to air-to-fuel mixtures and in-cylinder pressures that are more challenging to ignite and which are requiring continually greater spark energy. This trend will continue pushing conventional systems close to their limits.

Meanwhile, the main technical drivers of spark plugs are long service life and functionality such as sure ignition, protection of the catalytic converter and cold-start reliability. Premium-priced precious metal spark plugs are extending product lifespan, thereby dampening unit growth for the aftermarket.
