Gasoline Injection Technologies – Market Analysis & Opportunity Assessment, 2014 - 2020
Oct 15, 2014 | Chemicals & Materials | FMI
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). 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.
