Introduction: -

A spark plug is an electrical gadget primarily used to transfer electric currents from an ignition system to the chamber of combustion in a vehicle. It supplies the spark that ignites the combustible air-fuel mixture inside the engine cylinder. It aids in producing power in the engine by creating explosions. The device typically comprises a metal-threaded shell, resistance, ribs, hex, electrodes, and insulator. It is designed to produce a powerful ignition spark around 500-3,500 times per minute, with temperatures revolving between 500C and 800C. Spark plugs are fused in cylinders of gasoline engines, while glow plugs are integrated on the cylinder head of the diesel engines. The global spark plug market is expected to grow at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.5% during the forecast period of 2022-2030.

Growth Drivers:

The adoption of spark plugs is high in petrol-based passenger vehicles, recreational boats, jet skis, and gasoline and natural gas powered-generators. Apart from this, platinum and iridium-based cold spark plugs also have heavy utilization in high-performance engines to produce minimal carbon emissions. Moreover, the growing automobile production across the globe and the increasing need for part substitution in vehicles are leading to an increased demand for spark plugs in such vehicles. All these factors are considerably aiding in the swift expansion of the global spark plug market.

Additionally, the major players present in the global spark plug market are actively engaged in introducing enhanced spark plugs with new electrode materials, improved performance & ignitability, and better electrical energy conductivity. The advent of spark plugs with plasma core and Advanced Corona Ignition System (ACIS) and iridium spark plugs that have higher life and can operate in corrosive environments during marine application are other recent developments that are expected to bolster the growth of the global spark plug market during the forecast period.

Furthermore, the escalating demand for vehicles across the globe, the elevating international pressure towards reducing carbon emission, the rising number of regulations pertaining to emissions and fuel efficiency, the rapidly expanding automobile industry, and the implementation of favorable government policies encouraging the use of energy-efficient systems worldwide are among other primary factors fueling the growth of the global spark plug market.

On the other hand, the growing penetration of electric vehicles & electrically powered working equipment such as mowers and saws, and the surging adoption of engine downsizing to reduce vehicle weight are projected to hamper the growth of the global spark plug market to some extent during the forecast period of 2022-2030.
