Gasoline injection technologies are used in gasoline automotive engines.The commonly available variants of this technology are multi point fuel injection (MPFI) and gasoline direct injection (GDI).

Increasing vehicular pollution and the immediate need to reduce emissions, coupled with the implementation of stringent vehicle emission control mandates, have fanned the flame for efficient fuel injection technologies. Growing sales volume of electric vehicles and high awareness regarding sustainability among consumers are also expected to spell the death of gasoline engines going forward.

  • In November 2022, at COP27, Spain and France joined the pledge to eliminate the sales of gasoline-powered vehicles by 2035 along with other developed economies as part of the Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) transition on a global scale. Other countries are planning to achieve this by 2040. This is expected to hurt the future demand for gasoline injection technologies and benefit the sales of electric vehicles.

Gasoline direct injection is a more efficient injection technology as it utilizes higher compression ratios and injects fuel directly into the combustion chamber without the use of an intake port. Rapid adoption of gasoline direct injection technology by automotive manufacturers has resulted in the launch of several new vehicles with GDI systems as regulations for vehicular emissions tighten around the world.

  • In 2021, Hyundai, a leading Korean car manufacturer, unveiled and announced the launch of its Elantra N line model featuring a gasoline direct injection powered motor with 276 HP.
  • In July 2022, Standard Motor Products Inc., a leading supplier of automotive aftermarket parts, revealed that it would be continuing the expansion of its Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) program as it has been crucial in improving fuel economy and has witnessed widespread adoption in recent years.

improper implementation of GDI systems is also causing a nuisance for certain automotive companies, which could give a bad rep to the technology in the future.

  • Hyundai and Kia were facing issues with their Theta GDI engines and fixing this cost the company around US$ 2 billion in the third quarter of 2022 alone.

Gasoline injection technologies have evolved from simple carburetor injection to MPFI to GDI. Gasoline direct injection is an advanced version of multi point fuel injection and is majorly adopted in Europe. The developing regions such as Asia, Africa, and South America have high volume adoption of MPFI technology. The cannibalization rate of GDI over MPFI in these regions is fairly slow compared to matured regions such as Europe and North America. The components of gasoline injection technologies or systems include fuel injectors, fuel pumps, fuel ignition systems, and electronic control units.Advancements in these injection technologies have led to the development of fuel injection technologies for two-wheeler segments as well. High performance premium racing bikes and some of the low end bikes also feature fuel injection technologies.

The quest for the design of high performance vehicles with reasonable fuel economy, and lower emissions has led to developments in injection technologies. Rising demand for light commercial vehicles, especially in Asia-Pacific, and stable demand in North America and Europe is boosting the automotive components and ancillaries industry. Fuel injection being one of the vital and essential systems, its demand is expected to grow in line with automotive production across the world. Some of the underlying factors driving the growth in the fuel injection segment include growing automotive financing market, improving lifestyle, urbanization, and rising disposable income of individuals, especially in developing countries. Gasoline direct injection technology is expected to witness robust growth between 12% and 15% in the next five years. Key players in the market include Continental AG, Bosch, Denso Corporation and Delphi Automotive LLP.
