Overview of the global automotive homogenous charge compression ignition (HCCI) market
According to Technavio’s market research report, the global automotive homogenous charge compression ignition (HCCI) market will grow rapidly at a CAGR of more than 17% during the forecast period. The compatibility of HCCI engines with alternative fuels will drive the growth prospects for the market for the next four years. The technology is gaining traction in the market because it has many benefits such as high efficient engine performance and fuel efficiency, which makes it highly compatible with various types of fuels. These benefits encourage more automakers to invest in commercializing this technology. Many engine designers and developers also employ gasoline in HCCI engines. They are also focusing on integrating fuels that possess high octane number with high cetane number to enhance the durability and reliability of the engine. Such innovations will also reduce CO (carbon monoxide) and NOx (nitrous oxide) emissions. With the increasing degree of flexibility and compatibility, the popularity of these engines will increase during the projected period.
The development of DiesOtto by Mercedes-Benz is one of the key trends stimulating growth in the global automotive HCCI market. The engine can deliver 238 hp at 400 nm of torque since it consists of two-stage turbocharging with 1.8-liter engine displacement. The popularity of DiesOtto engine will increase as it runs on gasoline and can turn into a self-igniting system on the basis of compression ignition for low- and medium-speed applications.
Competitive landscape and key vendors
The automotive homogenous charge compression ignition market has a few well-known and established vendors. These vendors are increasingly focusing on designing efficient automotive HCCI engines. The official launch of this technology will lead to immense competition among various players. Vendors do not provide these technologies for a commercial purpose because it requires heavy investments in the research and developmental activities.
Key vendors in this market are -
Other prominent vendors in the market include Volkswagen and Daimler.
