The global spark plug market is set to grow due to various factors, including the growth in demand for fuel-efficient vehicles, strict government norms, and technological advancements. The industry will also be boosted by the growth in the marine industry and the production of passenger cars. However, there are certain challenges that are limiting the growth of this market. One of these is the growth of electric vehicles and engine downsizing.
The global spark plug market is segmented according to vehicle type. The Two-Wheeler segment is expected to dominate the market in 2021, due to increasing sales of two-wheelers and the low maintenance costs. Spark plugs improve the efficiency of the combustion process, thereby ensuring higher mileage and acceleration. In addition, manufacturers are developing specialized spark plugs for different types of engines.
Growth in the automotive industry in the U.S. is expected to continue in the coming years. In 2018, 17.2 million light commercial vehicles were sold in the U.S., making it the second largest vehicle market in the world. This will continue to fuel the growth of the spark plug market in the upcoming decade. Furthermore, many leading automotive companies are establishing engine plants in the U.S. to expand their manufacturing base and support the research and development of engine equipment.
Industry Spark Plugs Manufacturers have also sought to improve the safety of ignition components. These innovations are necessary for optimal engine performance. For example, NGK SPARK PLUG has opened three 'Venture Labs' in Silicon Valley and Berlin. It also has partnered with Neural Analytics, Inc.
The manufacturing process for spark plugs begins with the fabrication of the insulator. After the insulator has been completed, the center electrode is inserted through the bore of the insulator and is trimmed to the exact shape. After the insulator, the main spark plug elements are then assembled in a continuous in-line assembly process. The center electrode is fitted inside the insulator while the side electrode is attached to the shell. These parts are then assembled into a single unit and inspected to ensure they meet the required standards.
Spark plugs are critical components of internal combustion engines. Their role is vital for vehicles. A spark plug is the component that ignites the combustion process and produces spark. Spark plugs are usually threaded into the cylinder of a spark-ignition engine. They may be hex, shell, or resistance. They are also used in marine and aerospace applications. The increasing popularity of vehicles and strict emission and fuel efficiency regulations is fueling the market growth in the market.
In addition to spark plugs, NGK offers glow plugs and industrial spark plugs. Its new spark plugs for industrial gas engines is designed to be tough and withstand high temperatures. Moreover, the company offers a variety of secondary services including installation, repair, and maintenance. It also manufactures custom finishing machinery for various industries.
