Automotive Ignition Coil Market
Automotive Ignition Coil Market

Global Automotive ignition Market is expected to grow at a significant rate of around 3% during the forecast period. In an automobile’s ignition system, an induction coil is used to convert the battery’s low voltage into the thousands of volts needed to produce an electric spark. Automotive ignition coils, also known as spark coils, are crucial to the engine’s smooth and effective operation. Can-type ignition coils, electronic distributor coils, double spark coils, pencil ignition coils, ignition coil rails, are different types of ignition coils. The automotive ignition coil is used in passenger cars, HCV, LCV, and other vehicles. The key players are actively investing to maintain strong position in the market. For instance, in September 2021, Hitachi Astemo announced that it would invest USD 56 million over two years to improve industrial safety at its three plants in Lerma, thus contributing to the creation of 480 new jobs. The plants employ more than 2,700 people who manufacture water pumps, balancers, ignition coils, oil control valves, airflow sensors, pistons, shock absorbers, and brake castings for Nissan, Ford, Honda, GM, Mazda, and Stellantis.
