Automotive Starter Motor Market Trends

Increase in worldwide auto manufacturing is driving the market growth

The market CAGR for automotive starter motor is anticipated to grow in the future due to the increase in worldwide auto manufacturing. All mobile machinery, including cars, trucks, buses, vans, motorcycles, and golf carts, is referred to as automotive. In order to power the vehicle's electrical system and charge the battery, an automotive starter motor convert electrical energy into mechanical energy, which drives machines and engines. For instance, the global vehicle output in April 2022 was 79.1 million, up 1.3% from the previous year, according to the European Automobile Manufacturers Association, an organisation with its headquarters in Europe. As a result, the market for automotive starter motors is being driven by an increase in worldwide vehicle production.

Furthermore, the automotive starter motor market is experiencing growth as a result of technological advances. To keep up with competition, major manufacturers of vehicle starting motors and alternators are adopting cutting-edge technologies. For instance, in March 2020, Autoelectro, a remanufacturer of starters, motors, and alternators with headquarters in the UK, unveiled three new lines of starter motors with stop-start technology. Contemporary stop-start starter motors function in concert with the vehicle's engine management system. The automobile uses stop-start technology to go into standby mode when it is at a stoplight or in a queue of traffic so it can start up rapidly when the pedal is pressed. In addition to improving fuel economy, the stop-start system also reduces emissions to assist automakers in adhering to strict regulatory rules.

Additionally, growing economies like India's give several opportunities for market participants to expand their businesses. India and other developing and developed nations are anticipated to spend more on cars due to new technology, manufacturing investment in R&D, and the creation of innovative automotive parts. Over the course of the forecast, this is expected to have a positive impact on the worldwide automotive starter motor market. However, India has emerged as the highly preferred location for the automobile sector. Government organisations in a number of nations seek to maintain environmental sustainability through advancing the automotive sector through the use of electric and hybrid automobiles. Nevertheless, despite several initiatives, there is still a sizable market for internal combustion engine-powered cars, especially for commercial cars like those used in mining and transportation infrastructure. This points to profitable growth potential for automotive starter motors in developing economies. Thus, driving the automotive starter motor market revenue.

Automotive Starter Motor Industry Developments

February 2024: Envalior partnered with KOKI TECHNIK Transmission Systems GmbH, a leading manufacturer of Transmission Shifting Systems, to supply a shift fork (start motor component) used in an E-Powertrains Decoupling Unit. KOKI selected ForTii ACE PPA for its shift fork application due to the material's very high stiffness of up to 160°C, design freedom and maximum wear resistance without bushings.

The primary aim of the KOKI shifting fork is to have it lightweight with high stiffness and maximum wear resistance. Additionally, the company intends to make this application less costly than one made from heavily machined aluminum.

ForTii ACE is equivalent to substituting aluminum components within decoupling units used in both E-Powertrains and regular transmissions, based on Ron Krotwaar, who was an advanced development expert for Envalior's Lightweight Solution at that time.

Most importantly, any thermoplastic GF-reinforced compound can be designed as such a one-component part integrating almost all functions—assembly interfaces, detection systems, or even gearing—without requiring further processing steps. Consequently, there are chances that cost savings may be realized. Besides being cost-competitive material-wise, ForTii ACE has better performance in relation to well-designed composite solutions instead of aluminum components.

This helped improve the accuracy of KOKI’s advanced simulations through KOKI's advanced CAE simulations plus Envalior's CAE services & predictive technologies. While developing the shift fork, Envalior provided technical support and services that optimized geometry for mechanical performance and processing thereof. The team of KOKI/Envalior worked together on anisotropic material behavior as well as material models. Additionally, their experience with simulating & interpreting results was shared, and they also discussed different ways how these problems can be solved. Also, measuring viscosity was among other things that Envalior did on behalf of KOKI.

The immense knowledge Envalior has in material, their behaviors and their vast experience enabled them to help KOKI adjust its product designs, simulations and tooling so as to get the best performance out of the material.

April 2022 BBB Industries, a producer of automobiles and a supplier of aftermarket services, announced the purchase of Budweg Calliper A/S. The deal includes all aspects of the business concept. With this acquisition, BBB now has access to its first green production plant in Europe, making it the sixth European acquisition made by the company since 2019. BBB Industries was able to grow in the European market as a result of this acquisition.

May 2021 US Hybrid was purchased by US-based electric car maker Ideanomics, Inc. for an unknown sum. With the help of cutting-edge EV technologies and creative partnerships, Ideanomics hopes to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from commercial fleets. The acquisition is yet another important step in that direction. A US-based producer of traction motors is called US Hybrid.
