Global Automotive Fuel Rail Market Size, Share, Forecast Report, 2020-2027
An automotive fuel rail is also known as common rail fuel injection system. The main function of fuel rail is to supply optimal amount of fuel through the injectors. The engines are designed with fuel rail injection system as the fuel pressure in the fuel delivery system can be adjusted irrespective of the crankshaft speed and engine load. The fuel rail is a subcomponent in the fuel delivery system, which handles high-pressure fuel and supplies it to the injectors. Thus, it provides better control over the fuel injection timing and provides enhanced spray penetration and mixing.
Automotive fuel rail market has seen remarkable growth, globally and is expected to grow with the CAGR of ~3%. The demand for advanced fuel-efficient delivery system is rising rapidly, owing to stringent emission norms and the need for fuel economy. Strict government regulations regarding emissions are among the major driving factors of the global automotive fuel rail market. Growing awareness with concerns regarding the environment and the increase in demand for fuel-efficient vehicles will further drive the market. The key factor which drives the market is increase in vehicle production, across the globe. The increase in sales of the passenger car and commercial vehicle, increase in demand for alternative fuel engine, increase in demand for advanced fuel delivery systems and customization of the automotive fuel rail as per requirement fuel the growth of fuel rail market. Another factor that drives the market is government initiatives such as government subsidies in India for hybrid electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, increased demand for high-efficiency vehicles and increasing pollution. The increased demand for hybrid electric vehicles is also driving the demand for automotive fuel rails. Vehicle OEMs are taking several initiatives such as engine downsizing to reduce the overall weight of the engine, which further increases the growth of the market. However, innovation and development regarding the fuel-efficient products is a major challenge for the manufacturers. Increase in demand for battery electric vehicles will hinder the growth of the global automotive fuel rail market. The adoption of gasoline direct injection engines, which require high-pressure automotive fuel rail, increases the demand for automotive fuel rail.
