The automotive VVT & start-stop system market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.7% reaching USD 58.8 billion by 2027 from USD 42.3 billion from 2021. The major factors responsible for the growth of this market include the stringent emission regulations and fuel-efficiency standards enforced by different legislative bodies across the globe. Also, increased production of hybrid vehicles would drive the start-stop system market.

However, COVID-19 pandemic had an impact on the market in the first few months. Both the demand and supply of automotive vehicles and components had come to a halt in the first few months of 2020 across the globe as the whole ecosystem had been disrupted. However, in the next two quarters, the demand had been increasing. Additionally, the sales and production of vehicle has increased at a rapid pace in this year but due to chip shortage incidence the vehiclde production again got affected from the third quarter. Moreover, as per industry experts it is expected that this situation will continue till the third quarter of 2022, after then the things will again come on track.

Dual Overhead Cam (DOHC) for VVT and Integrated Starter Generator (ISG) for start-stop technology are estimated to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period
In case of VVT, Dual Overhead Cam (DOHC) technology is expected to grow at a faster rate in passenger cars, LCVs, and HCVs. DOHC has dedicated valves for inlet and outlet. This leads to smooth transmission, enhanced control of valves, efficient use of fuel, and a noise-free ride. In case of start-stop systems, integrated starter generator (ISG) is expected to have the highest growth as it allows greater electrical generation capacity and better emissions benefits.

Asia Pacific shows high growth potential for VVT & start-stop system market
The Asia Pacific region comprises rapidly emerging economies such as China and India, along with developed nations such as Japan, and is the largest market for automotive. In recent years, the region has emerged as a hub for automobile production. As the governments of these countries have imposed stringent emission standards and fuel efficiency levels, upcoming vehicles must go through strict new car assessment programs. The major factors responsible for this region’s growth include increasing demand for fuel saving technologies like turbocharging and VVT & start-stop system. In addition, improving socioeconomic conditions in countries such as India, Thailand, and Indonesia have resulted in the growth of the demand for premium passenger cars. This, in turn, has accelerated the market for VVT & start-stop system in these countries.

Direct starter segment by technology will hold the largest market for start-stop system
The function such as automatic start-stop system can save up to fuel and reduce of CO2 emissions. This technology is used in a direct injected internal combustion engine to enable its instant restart. The technology keeps the piston in an optimal position when the vehicle stops, so that instant restart of the engine is possible by injecting fuel into the cylinder.Measurements taken in the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) proved engine efficiency and fuel savings of up to 5-8%. The direct starter technology holds the largest market in the start-stop systems due to its presence in conventional engines.
