A vehicle’s powertrain contributes substantially to a vehicle’s content, even more so in the future as major emission compliance challenges emerge for OEMs, driving greater sophistication in existing powertrain technologies, as well as unprecedented changes in propulsion systems with the move toward greater electrification.

IHS Markit’s Powertrain Components and Technology Service provides insight, context, data, and analytics for the key technologies that are reshaping engines and transmissions in cars and light commercial vehicles. Users can quickly access key insights from market developments, put context around events and technology trends, dive into deep data and forecasts, and seamlessly drive analytics to support their most challenging decisions.

About this Report

Fuel-system volumes have traditionally been directly correlated with vehicle production; fully electric vehicles will erode this direct correlation, but there is still some way to go before fully electric vehicles take a significant portion of the market. In addition, within the fuel systems market as a whole there are important developments taking place in segmentation. This is partly a function of declining diesel penetration, but there are significant changes taking place in terms of the fuel systems used in the gasoline market.

Globally, the most prominent fuel-injection systems installed in gasoline engines are DI and MFI. DI should grow strongly, with DI volumes expected to increase to 51.7 million units in 2023 from 27.4 million units in 2017. DI for gasoline vehicles holds huge potential for helping to lower fuel consumption and emissions. With gasoline direct injection (GDI), the fuel-air mixture takes place in the combustion chamber of the engine. The air enters through the intake valve and fuel is injected at a very high pressure up to 350 bar in the airstream. Consequently, this improves the “swirl effect and improved cooling of the combustion chamber,” which helps in higher compression and improved efficiency. In turn, this process reduces fuel consumption and improves driving dynamics. This makes GDI a highly suitable technology for downsizing and turbocharging.
