Urbanization and increasing demand for mobility in developing
economies: a major market driver

Globally, in developed economies, the automotive market has reached
maturity in terms of vehicle ownership. In emerging economies, the
middle-class population is growing steadily and is seeking better
options to travel within the cities and intercity, leading to increased
vehicle sales. In countries such as Brazil, India, China, and Russia,
the combined middle-class families added up to 800 million people in
2010 and this number is expected to reach around 1,600 million people by

In developing economies, the migration of people toward cities to pursue
economic opportunities and the reversal of suburbanization is expected
to drive more than half of the world population towards urbanization by
2040. This will lead to growth in infrastructure developments, which
will impact the various sectors of the economy. For example, better
infrastructure in cities will increase the demand for vehicles such as
trucks, trailers, and tractors to transport goods and resources.

Pressure sensor glow plugs for diesel engines: emerging market trend

BERU, a brand of Federal-Mogul, developed the pressure
sensor glow plugs
(PSG) technology. PSG controls the combustion
processes inside a closed loop system. Engines with PSG help in
implementing higher peak pressures in the smaller engines. This can push
the future combustion processes even further to their limits and lead to
stable emissions control throughout the engine's entire service life.
The sensors measure the rapidly changing pressure in the combustion
chamber during each combustion cycle and communicate this information
uninterruptedly to the engine control unit. For accurate control of the
combustion process in a diesel engine, pressure sensor glow plugs play
an important part.

According to a senior analyst at Technavio for research on automotive
, "Some of the significant features of PSG are that
it is based on the principle of the piezoresistive effect, it has a
flexible heating rod for transmitting pressure and resisting high
temperature, it can be easily calibrated, it has integrated miniaturized
electronics in the upper part of the plug, and has an integrated
concentric automotive plug to the combustion chamber."

Global market opportunities

In terms of regional dominance, APAC led the global
automotive glow plugs market
, followed by EMEA and the Americas
in 2017. Countries such as China and India are the most significant
manufacturing hubs in APAC. To support the growing infrastructure needs
of developing nations, the increasing sales of commercial vehicles will
be a significant factor that will drive the growth of the global
automotive glow plugs market.

In the Americas, the market share will see a decline during the forecast
period owing to the declining production of diesel engine passenger cars
and commercial vehicles. In EMEA, the passenger cars market was affected
by the global recession, while the stringent emission norms influenced
the commercial vehicles market in this region.
