Direct fuel injection (DFI) is a type of fuel injection system that delivers fuel directly into the combustion chamber of an internal combustion engine, rather than into the intake manifold or intake port. This results in a more efficient fuel burn and improved engine performance. In a direct injection system, fuel is pressurized and injected into the combustion chamber through a nozzle or injector which allows for greater control over the fuel delivery and can result in a more precise and efficient combustion process. It is particularly popular in high-performance sports cars, where improved engine performance is a key consideration. Direct injection can also be found in some hybrid and electric vehicles, where it is used in conjunction with other fuel delivery systems to optimize efficiency and performance. The development of direct fuel injection systems that meet the growing demand for vehicles with better fuel efficiency, increased power, and lower emissions are being driven by consumer demand. Furthermore, the growth of the direct fuel injection market is being propelled by technological advancements and economic conditions, among other factors.

The market for direct fuel injection is expected to experience significant growth, largely driven by the increase in both vehicle production and sales.

Direct fuel injection (DFI) systems are commonly used in modern cars, both gasoline and diesel engines and have become increasingly popular in recent years due to their ability to improve engine performance and fuel efficiency. The growing number of vehicles produced and sold across the globe is an important factor behind the growth of the direct fuel injection market. For instance, data from The International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers indicates that the global production of vehicles increased by 3% in 2021 as compared to 2020. As per the same source, global sales of all vehicles increased from 78,774,320 in 2020 to 82,684,788 in 2021. OICA data also indicates that the total number of vehicles produced in the United States of America was around 9167214 representing an increase of 4% in 2021 as compared to 2020. The National Automobile Dealers Association states that vehicle sales in the United States rose by 4.2% (15.4 million units) in 2023 as compared to 2022. According to VDA - German Association of the Automotive Industry, vehicle production in Germany was recorded at 2,27,400 units in 2022. The Federal Motor Transport Authority Germany stated that the number of new car registrations in the country rose to 3,14,318 units in 2022. Data from The International Trade Administration states that around 797,243 vehicles were produced in Italy in 2021 representing an increase of 2.6% as compared to 2020. Thus, it can be concluded that the rising rate of both production and sales of vehicles globally will drive the demand for direct fuel injection systems proving to be beneficial for the growth of this market.

Asia Pacific is expected to show the maximum growth of the direct fuel injection market in the future.

The increased production of commercial vehicles is an important factor behind the growth of the direct fuel injection market in this region. Data from OICA shows that there was a 3% increase in the production of commercial vehicles in China in 2021  and around 1227713 commercial vehicles were produced in Japan in the same year. Increasing initiatives taken by the governments of the nations in this region to improve transportation facilities will lead the growth in the direct fuel injection market. For instance, in June 2021, an agreement was signed between the Province of B.C. and Japan Overseas Infrastructure Investment Corporation for Transport and Urban Development (JOIN) group, aimed at delivering innovative and clean solutions for future transportation projects and priorities. In addition, countries like China, India, and Japan are major automotive manufacturing hubs which result in the growth of the direct fuel injection market in the region. For instance, car production in Japan increased to 6,44,799 units in 2022 as per Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association (JAMA). Similarly, according to OICA, around 4399112 vehicles were produced in India in 2021 representing an increase of 30% as compared to 2020. Therefore, based on the given information, direct fuel injection systems are expected to show significant growth in the Asia Pacific region.

Market Key Developments

  • In December 2021, Stanadyne, a leading global supplier of fuel and air management systems, created a gasoline direct injection (GDI) fuel injector that was capable of delivering 1,000 bars of pressure.
  • In May 2021, Ferrari unveiled a revamped V12 engine for its 812 models in the form of limited edition Competizione A and Competizione vehicle versions. The engine featured a direct fuel injection management strategy that adhered to increasingly strict emission regulations, with injection volume and timing recalibrated accordingly.
