Hence, adoption of electric vehicles (EV) and plug-in hybrids is increasing, especially across China, the U.S., and Germany. Also, higher fuel efficiency can be achieved by reducing the weight of vehicle, which has resulted in higher adoption of electric vehicles.
Countries such as India, China, and Germany are imposing strict policies to curb the emission in order to achieve fuel economy. This regulations are encouraging the production of electric vehicles. These trends are expected to have adverse impact on automotive ignition coil market.
What is the Impact of the COVID-19 Crisis on Automotive Ignition Coil Market?
The unprecedented outbreak of COVID-19 restricted the sales of automotive ignition coils as the automotive industry witnessed a slight setback in 2020. However, with the recommencement of automotive production in FQ-2020, sales of passenger and commercial vehicles improved, in turn fuelling the demand for automotive ignition coils.
Despite a slight setback, global sales of all vehicles recorded in 2020 was 77.9 million units, as per International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers. Among this, passenger cars sales reached 53.5 million units in 2020, while around 24.3 million commercial vehicles were sold in 2020 across the globe.
Some of the leading automotive ignition coil manufacturers are recuperating with the loss occurred due to the outbreak of COVID-19 by collaborating and entering in long-term partnerships with OEMs. Through this, they also intend to cater the rising demand for improved fuel efficiency in passenger cars among consumers.
What is Driving U.S. Automotive Ignition Coil Market?
The U.S. is expected to spearhead the growth of North America automotive ignition coil market in 2021. Sales of automotive ignition coils in U.S. are surging on the back of increasing production of passenger cars and higher focus on reducing carbon emission.
According to the Two Fuel Economy Programs, in order to reduce the carbon footprints and decrease the pollution, the government is encouraging automakers to manufacturer vehicles of compact size and with lower need for fuel in the vehicles.
As these compact cars with greater fuel efficiency need a smooth spark, adoption of double spark coil is accelerating. On the back of this, demand for automotive ignition coil is expected to grow in the U.S. over the forthcoming years.
Another factor driving the sales of automotive ignition coils in the U.S. includes the strong presence of leading automakers in the country. However, higher sales of plug-in hybrid and battery electric vehicles might hamper growth in the market to an extent.
