An Incisive, In-depth Analysis on the Gasoline Direct Injection Gdi Market

This study offers a comprehensive, 360 degree analysis on the Gasoline Direct Injection Gdi market, bringing to fore insights that can help stakeholders identify the opportunities as well as challenges. It tracks the global Gasoline Direct Injection Gdi market across key regions, and offers in-depth commentary and accurate quantitative insights. The study also includes incisive competitive landscape analysis, and provides key recommendations to market players on winning imperatives and successful strategies.

Gasoline direct injection (GDI) is prominently observed as a key technology for achieving greater efficiency and improving the overall dynamics of automobile engines. By using high pressure, GDI systems have been driving down the fuel consumption of vehicles, and ultimately lowering their carbon emissions. With increasing demand for mobility, the global market for gasoline direct injection is anticipated to soar at a robust pace in the approaching years.

According to Future Market Insights, the global gasoline direct injection market is poised to reach a value of US$ 6.6 billion by the end of 2022. Over the next five years, the adoption of GDI technologies is anticipated to surge across key automakers and OEMs in the world. The report that during the forecast period, 2017-2022, the Asia-Pacific excluding Japan (APEJ) region will represent the largest market for gasoline direct injection systems. By the end of 2022, the APEJ gasoline direct injection market is anticipated to be worth over US$ 2 billion. North America’s gasoline direct injection market is also expected to witness significant traction in terms of value growth.


Better compliance with four-stroke engines

Direct fuel injection technologies were primarily used in development of economical cars with two-stroke engines in the late 1930s. In the foreseeable future, GDI technology is expected to be predominantly adopted in production of four-stroke engines. While the efficiency of gasoline direct injection in two-stroke systems remains to be consistent, the demand for four-stroke engines continues to outpace across automotive markets. The report projects that in 2017, over three-fourth share of revenues procured in the global gasoline direct injection market will be accounted by four-stroke engines. Through 2022, the global sales of GDI systems across four-stroke engines will be registering a robust revenue growth at 15.3% CAGR.

Over 90 percent of GDI systems will be sold by OEMs in 2017

On the basis of sales channels, OEMs will continue to grab the largest piece. Gasoline direct injection technology is known to have a considerable impact in the lowering production cost for OEMs. Some GDI systems are equipped with sensors, which enable manufacturers of automotive engines offer customisation with respect to lambda controls. Such systems can effectively the performance of engine and its components by optimising power supply and managing the overall load on the engine. By the end of 2022, OEMs will register more than US$ 6 billion in revenues from global sales of gasoline direct injection systems.

Impact of rising sales of compact & mid-sized vehicles

The report has analysed the global gasoline direct injection market on the basis of vehicles. In 2017, compact vehicles and mid-sized vehicles are expected to account for nearly of half of the revenues procured in the global gasoline direct injection market. With rising sales of compact SUVs, these vehicle segments will continue showcase higher revenues share on global gasoline direct injection market throughout the forecast period. Premium and luxury vehicles are expected to exhibit a relatively low share on gasoline direct injection revenues, considering that manufacturers of these vehicles are likely to adopt advanced fuel injection technologies.

Key manufacturers of GDI systems

Few years down the line, companies namely, Continental AG, Delphi Automotive Plc, Magneti Marelli S.p.A., Renesas Electronics Corporation, Robert Bosch GmbH, Denso Corporation, Eaton Corporation Plc., Infineon Technologies AG, STMicroelectronics NV, and TI Group Automotive Systems, L.L.C. are likely to be observed and recognised as key manufacturers of GDI systems. The report expects active participation of these players in the global gasoline direct injection market during the forecast period. With changing emission norms, these manufacturers will strive to maintain the applicability and significance of GDI systems in production of automobiles in the near future.
