Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023-2035

Automotive Start-Stop System Market size is expected to reach USD 5 billion by the end of 2035, witnessing around 14% CAGR during the forecast period, i.e., 2023-2035. In the year 2022, the industry size of automotive start-stop system was USD 2 billion. The growth of the market can primarily be attributed to the rising serious environmental impact of engine idling along with growing concern about the rising incidences of air pollution worldwide. The market is also being driven by the increased awareness of the harmful impacts of air pollution on both human health and the environment. Consumers are increasingly seeking vehicles that are more fuel-efficient and release fewer emissions as they become more aware of the environmental effects of their driving habits. The demand for automobiles with start-stop systems is increasing as a result. For instance, it was found that air pollution is responsible for more than 4 million deaths each year around the globe.

The automotive start-stop system shuts down and restarts the internal combustion engine automatically to reduce the amount of time the engine spends idling, thereby reducing fuel consumption and emissions. It is useful for vehicles that spend significant amounts of time waiting at traffic lights or frequently come to a stop in traffic jams. With the rising number of vehicles as well as surging production, the demand for automotive start-stop systems is on the rise amongst automobile manufacturers, which in turn, is expected to create massive revenue generation opportunities for the key players operating in the global automotive start-stop system market during the forecast period. For instance, global motor vehicle production grew by 3% in 2021.

Automotive Start-Stop System Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Growing Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Emissions – Start-stop technology is becoming crucial for the transport sector with more stringent government fuel economy and emissions regulations. The rising CO2 emission is expected to boost the automotive start-stop system market in the forecasted period. For instance, it was found that the global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from transport summed up to ~8 billion tons in 2018 globally.

  • Rising Urban Mobility – There is a rising need for cars that are made for driving in cities as a growing number of people relocate there. As they work best when the vehicle is continually stopping and resuming, start-stop systems are especially well-suited for urban driving. For instance, in 2019 it was found that ~70% of Europe’s population lived in urban areas, which is estimated to be about 80% by 2050.

  • Increasing Demand for High-Efficiency Engines – High-efficiency engines are frequently combined with start-stop systems because they may further increase fuel economy and lower the number of pollutants. Consumers are increasingly buying high-efficiency engines as a means of lowering their fuel expenditures and environmental effect. With efficient engines and lightweight components enabled by advanced materials, as it is expected that one-quarter of the United States fleet could save over 5 billion gallons of fuel annually by 2030.

  • Increasing Sales of Motorcycles – The need for fuel-efficient and low-emission bikes is rising, which is also boosting the market for start-stop technology in motorcycles as more people search for alternatives to cars for urban transportation. For instance, in India the sales of two-wheelers reached an all-time high in 2019, selling around 21 million units.


  • Lack of Awareness Amongst Automobile Users about the Benefits of Automotive Start-Stop Systems - Since start-stop systems are a fairly new concept, many customers may not be familiar with their advantages. Some individuals might not be aware that start-stop technology can assist to increase fuel economy and decrease emissions, which can save money and lessen their influence on the environment. Additionally, some buyers could be hesitant to buy cars with start-stop systems because they might have doubts about the dependability and longevity of these systems.
  • Inefficiencies of the Start-Stop Technology
  • Huge Requirement of Capital for Research & Development

Automotive Start-Stop System Segmentation

Vehicle Type (Motorcycles, Passenger Cars, Light Commercial Vehicles, Heavy Commercial Vehicles)

The global automotive start-stop system market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by vehicle type into motorcycles, passenger cars, light commercial vehicles, and heavy commercial vehicles. Amongst these segments, the heavy commercial vehicles segment is anticipated to garner the largest revenue by the end of 2035, backed by the growing number of heavy vehicles such as trucks and trailers along with the surge in the cost of idle fuel waste worldwide. For instance, it was estimated that in the span of a year, a long-haul truck could idle for nearly 1,800 hours, using around 1,500 gallons of diesel, which as of June 2022, was over USD 5.5 per gallon in the United States.

Fuel Type (Gasoline, Diesel, CNG, Electric)

The global automotive start-stop system market is also segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by fuel type into gasoline, diesel, CNG, and electric. Out of these segments, the gasoline segment is expected to gather the highest market share by the end of 2035. This can be owed to the fact that most people prefer petrol or gasoline-powered vehicles over diesel ones. Moreover, it is the most widely used fuel in vehicles, with more than 90% of all fossil fuel powered vehicles being run on gasoline. However, the electric segment is also expected to grow at a notable CAGR with the growing adoption of EVs across the world.
