The global gasoline direct injection market size was valued at USD 9.10 billion in 2021. The market is projected to grow from USD 9.98 billion in 2022 to USD 19.86 billion by 2029, exhibiting a CAGR of 10.3% during the forecast period. The global COVID-19 pandemic has been unprecedented and staggering, with gasoline direct injection experiencing lower-than-anticipated demand across all regions compared to pre-pandemic levels. Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited a decline of -6.5% in 2020 as compared to 2019.
Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) is commonly known as petrol direct injection, a mixture-forming mechanism for gasoline-powered internal combustion engines in which fuel is directly pumped into the combustion chamber of a vehicle. The GDI system is far more precise than older fuel-injection systems or carburetors as it improves fuel efficiency and produces a high power output. Furthermore, emissions levels may be managed more accurately with GDI technology. A typical gasoline fuel injector system consists of fuel pumps, fuel injectors, Electronic Control Units (ECU), fuel rail, and others. In this system, fuel pumps pressurize the gasoline fuel before being injected with the help of a fuel injector directly into each cylinder's combustion chamber through a standard rail fuel line. In addition, the ECU adjusts the necessary air-fuel mixture, ignition timing, and exhaust-gas treatment.
Supply Chain Disruptions and Closure of Manufacturing Units Slowed Down Growth amid the Pandemic
In 2020, due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic and unprecedented turmoil in the global energy market, the world economy was severely impacted by a significant drop in mobility, closure of industries, reduced road transport, and others. Besides, the travel rule and lockdown regulations have also resulted in the unavailability of skilled labor, causing disruption in the manufacturing sector.
The COVID-19 pandemic has set a drawback for automotive component manufacturers across the globe owing to supply chain disruption and increasing demand for raw materials, such as steel spools, powertrain components, among others, which halted component requirement across the automotive sector. For example, two auto powerhouses, Toyota Motors and Hyundai Motor, have temporarily shut down their automobile production at the national car site due to the outbreak of coronavirus in February.
Furthermore, the impact of COVID-19 has also resulted in lower demand for fuel, which has significantly caused fluctuation in fuel prices across many regions causing the decline in sales & use of gasoline-powered vehicles.

Advancement of GDI Technology with Various Fuel Sources to Spur Market Opportunities
As per the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, emissions from transportation, including emissions from passenger cars and light-duty vehicles, account for around 36% of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from fossil fuel combustion and 28% of total greenhouse gas emissions in major countries such as the U.S. This has brought the focus of automotive manufacturers to upgrade their powertrain solutions with advanced solutions to reduce the impact of carbon emissions through automobiles. For instance, partial electrification of the vehicle powertrain by deploying GDI engines and hybrid-electric technology along with utilizing e-compressors and e-turbochargers could bring down vehicle emissions and take the efficiency up a few notches by approximately 30%.
The introduction of technologies equipped with better eco-system features could provide enormous opportunities to improve the market landscape. In June 2021, Colorado State University led a project to develop advanced combustion strategies for direct injection LPG engines to achieve engine efficiency. Through the project, the organizations have successfully utilized GDI system components for compatibility and availability in LPG fuel injection systems, resulting in method generation for adapting off-the-shelf GDI injectors for LPG operation engines.
Government Regulations for Automotive Emission Reduction to Drive Market Growth
Gasoline direct injection is a type of fuel injection that delivers highly pressurized fuel directly into engine cylinders. Accordingly, new regulations have been introduced to limit particulate emissions from GDI engines. These regulations restrict vehicle emissions, balance vehicle performance, and fuel economy, which prompted automakers to develop innovative operational engine architectures.
In India, for example, the central government has ordered that from April 1, 2020, vehicle manufacturers will only have to manufacture, sell, and register BS-VI (Bharat Level 6) vehicles. The BS-VI proposal introduces PM and PN emission limits for light commercial petrol vehicles, although these standards only apply to vehicles equipped with direct injection engines.
In addition, automakers are also working on these new standards to produce vehicles with improved fuel efficiency and performance. For example, Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL) intends to offer a gasoline direct injection variant to diesel-powered vehicles to meet BS-VI emission standards, as the GDI technology despite being gasoline-powered, will be able to produce more power without compromising on fuel efficiency. Therefore, introducing strict regulations related to emissions is one of the factors expected to contribute to the gasoline direct injection market growth.
Increasing Demand for Fuel Efficiency and Improved Operational Engine Performance to Drive Market Growth
Due to rising concerns on deteriorating ambient air quality, specific measures are taken globally to adopt and enforce tighter vehicular emission regulations to minimize tailpipe unburned hydrocarbons, nitrogen oxides (NOx), and particulate matter (PM). Regions with advanced technologies started focusing on limiting the levels of pollutants to reduce the amount of carbon emissions into the atmosphere.
GDI engines can provide an optimum combination of fuel efficiency and high performance to control and optimize vehicle performance at an appropriate cost. A wide range of semiconductor solutions is specifically designed to comply with emissions norms and to provide greater fuel efficiency.
One recent development in the context occurred in May 2021, when STMicroelectronics enabled electronic control of the next generation of gasoline direct injection engines. The company has found that the injection voltage signal contains clear information about the actual quantity of fuel delivered. Further, it becomes clear that processing the injector voltage signal allows real-time calculation of the actual amount of fuel injected during the operation. This control strategy enables GDI for very short injections, when ballistic behavior occurs, enabling the use of multiple injection strategies in GDI engines.
Rising Electric Vehicle Demand to Hamper Market Growth
Increasing adoption of electric powered vehicles has resulted in sales decline of internal combustion engine vehicles as the rise in electric vehicles leads to a sign that a shift of power from oil is reducing. This has resulted in less production of IC engines components such as injectors, fuel rails, and others.
Furthermore, with recent advancements in clean energy for automobiles, more and more countries are increasing the adoption of this technology resulting in lower sales and production of a traditional internal combustion engine.
For instance, in 2021, 12.5% of new light-duty vehicle registrations were Plug-in Electric Vehicles (PEV) in California. In the European Union, hybrid electric vehicles accounted for 19.6% of all new passenger cars registered in 2021, compared to 11.9% in 2020, and sales of petrol vehicles fell by almost 33.5%, with nearly all EU markets recording declines.
