The global spark plug market was valued at $3.2 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $5.1 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 5.1% from 2021 to 2030.

Spark plug is equipped into the cylinder head of an internal combustion engine for ignition of air-fuel mixture and removal of heat from combustion chamber. A spark plug carries two electrodes separated by an air gap and is utilized to form a spark for igniting air fuel mixture. A good spark plug results in smooth start of engine along with improved fuel economy. Moreover, a spark plug can be made up of copper, iridium, platinum, and nickel.

Spark Plug Market, Spark Plug Industry

The growth of global spark plug market is propelling, due to increase in demand for fuel efficient vehicles, introduction of stringent norms regarding carbon emissions, surge in demand for passenger vehicles in developing nations, and rise in demand from marine sector for leisure boats & personal watercraft. However, growth in adoption of electric vehicles and engine downsizing to reduce weight of vehicles are the factors restraining the growth of the market. Furthermore, increase in adoption of natural gas-powered vehicles and technological advancements are expected to offer growth opportunities during the forecast period.

The spark plug market is segmented on the basis of type, electrode material, end-use, sales channel, and region. Based on type, it is divided into hot spark plug and cold spark plug. According to electrode material, it is classified into copper, platinum, iridium, and others. Depending on end-use, it is fragmented into automotive, marine, and others. As per the sales channel, it is fragmented into original equipment manufacturer and aftermarket. Region wise, it is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

Spark Plug Market by Type

Rise in demand for fuel-efficient vehicles

Several regulations are introduced that require automobile manufacturers to improve fuel efficiency and reduce harmful emissions caused by automobiles. Automakers focus toward manufacturing of automotive components with emission norms to provide higher fuel efficiency, which, in turn, is expected to increase the demand for spark plug. Hence, rise in demand for fuel-efficient vehicles drive the growth of the spark plug industry.

Spark Plug Market by End-Use

Introduction of stringent norms regarding carbon emissions

Spark plug is utilized for igniting air-fuel mixture in combustion chamber of engine. It provides smooth ignition and aids in reducing emission. Several regulations are introduced by countries across the globe to contain carbon emissions. Euro6 is introduced to reduce several different pollutants, such as carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, and nitrogen oxides. Euro6 norms introduced new CO2 emissions targets for passenger cars that is 95g/km of CO2, and light-commercial vehicle standards remain at 147 g/km of CO2 for 2020. In addition, the permitted level of nitrogen oxide emission is 80mg/km for diesel cars and permitted level of nitrogen oxide emission is 60mg/km for petrol cars. Hence, introduction of stringent norms regarding carbon emission is one of the factors that is expected to contribute toward the  growth of market.

Increase in demand for leisure boats & personal watercraft from the marine sector

Recently, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) issued regulations for sulfur emissions from ships & vessel, resulting in integration of advanced components for reducing the emission produced by vessels. Moreover, increase in demand for recreational boats & jet skis from marine sector has also created increased demand for spark plugs. Hence, increase in demand for leisure boats & personal watercraft from marine sector drives the growth of the market.
