The global automotive glow plug market was valued at $2.7 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $4 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 4.1% from 2022 to 2031.

A glow plug is a small heating device which is utilized to start the diesel engine in vehicles. A glow plug heats the air and fuel mixture to ignite the car engine. It is fitted into each cylinder block of a diesel engine with a heating system element to heat arriving fuel and air mixture to ensure efficient combustion when the engine is cold. In addition, a glow plug is composed of several components such as heating coil, regulating coil, terminal nut, center electrode, insulation powder, and others. Moreover, glow plugs come in different shapes and sizes and are not interchangeable.

Surge in demand for commercial vehicles

Commercial vehicles are witnessing high demand across the globe, with high-capacity, utilization and profitability driving the momentum for fleet renewal and expansion activities. Strong freight demand across the globe and growth of e-commerce industry are forcing automobile manufacturers to launch new commercial vehicles. For instance, in 2020, Ford launched the 2021 F-150 pickup truck which includes a hybrid version with new features such as hands-free highway driving systems and others.

Moreover, in transportation industry, dependence of e-commerce companies on logistics service providers to ensure transportation of goods through warehouse and distribution hub is increased, owing to the significant expansion of e-commerce activities. Thus, logistics companies which offers less than truckload (LTL) and full truckload (FTL) freight shipping services are increasingly adopting commercial vehicles due to their load carrying capacity. Commercial vehicles offer the lowest cost of transportation per ton per km, which is further enhancing its adoption for logistics operations. Thus, surge in demand for commercial vehicles is driving the growth of the automotive glow plug market.

Rise in production of vehicles globally

The automotive industry witnessed robust growth in the last decade in countries such as China, the U.S., Japan, India, Germany, and the UK. The global automotive industry initially focused on the developed countries such as Japan, the U.S., and Germany. However, companies have shifted their manufacturing facilities in the developing countries, such as China, Thailand, and India, due to increase in demand for automobiles & automotive components in these countries.

Low cost of labour further decreases the production cost, and thus enables the manufacturers to cater to the increase in demands, which is anticipated to boost the sale of the vehicle during the forecast period. In addition, post-pandemic, rise in production and sale of automobiles has been observed across the globe. For instance, in 2021, worldwide car sales grew to around 66.7 million automobiles, up from around 63.8 million units in 2020. In addition, SUVs accounted for more than 45% of global car sales in 2021. Such factors are projected to contribute toward the growth of the global vehicle industry, thereby supplementing the growth of the automotive glow plug industry.

Rise in demand for electric vehicles

Climate changes are taking place all over the world. Countries across the globe are taking initiatives to reduce their greenhouse gases and carbon dioxide emission. Several countries across the globe are adopting electric vehicle to achieve their net zero emission target, which in turn is increasing the demand for electric vehicles across the globe. Electric vehicle runs on clean energy and has zero emission as compared to traditional gasoline powered engine. Electric vehicle has an electric motor that runs on electric power supplied by the battery, thereby, eliminating the need of any other type of engine. The rise in interest of consumers toward electric vehicles is likely to hamper the growth of the market during the forecast period owing to their features such as non-emission vehicles and not requiring of fuels such as gasoline and diesel. Thus, rise in demand for electric vehicle is a major factor that restrains the growth of the automotive glow plug market.

Rise in aftermarket sale

Glow plugs are vital components in a diesel engine as it is used to start the engine. Glow plugs are gaining traction in aftermarket as the demand for glow plugs is expected to continue till the forecast timeframe. The demand for glow plug is expected to increase in Europe as most of the cargo transportation in Europe takes place through commercial vehicles. For instance, as per Eurostat, about 75% of inland cargo transports within European Union, which translates to about 1,750 billion metric ton-kilometers takes place by road. As a result, the demand for commercial vehicle and subsequently the glow plug from aftermarket channels has been continuously increasing in the Europe, due to growing logistics industry and rising usage of light commercial vehicles. Thus, rise in the aftermarket sale provides an opportunity for the growth of the automotive glow plug market.

Metal glow plug are equipped with a heating coil in a glow rod made of heat-resistant metal. A specific material such as magnesium oxide in the interior of the glow rod protects the heating coil from vibrations and shocks. Metal glow plugs have short preheating time of approximately 2 to 5 seconds. In addition, engine of a vehicle equipped with metal glow plugs can be gently started even at -30 C. Moreover, these glow plugs have a slim design and extended service life.  

Ceramic glow plugs have the ability to heat up more quickly as compared to metal glow plugs. In addition, ceramic glow plug can attain higher operating temperatures for an extended period of time. Owing to such factors many automobile manufacturers have started to integrate ceramic type glow plug in vehicles, which supplements the growth of the market.
