“Increase in gasoline direct injection engine demand is projected to drive the automotive piston market globally.”
The global automotive piston market size is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.5% during the forecast period, where the market in 2020 is estimated to be USD 1.9 billion and is projected to reach USD 2.2 billion by 2025. The growth of the automotive piston industry is influenced by factors such as increasing popularity of gasoline direct injection engines and the growing production of passenger vehicles. Some of the market restraining factors are the engine downsizing and possible shift towards electric vehicles.

“Aluminum is estimated to be the largest growing material for piston.”
The automotive piston consists of various components like piston head/crown, piston rod, and piston ring. Aluminum and stainless steel are the key materials used for the manufacturing of piston. The durability of piston components at high temperatures depends upon the type of material that been used for it. Owing to the light-weighting trend, lower cost, and other benefits offered by aluminum over steel and cast iron, the demand for aluminum is estimated to be the largest in the coming years.
