Global Spark Plug Market button

A spark plug or a sparking plug is used to deliver electric current during the combustion process to produce spark. It has a metal threaded shell and finds its usage in numerous applications such as furnaces, marine, ignition and outdoor applications among others. It is an electrical device threaded into the cylinder of spark ignition engine. When the engine is operated, there is a high tension current flow through the center electrodes, it ionizes the gas present between the electrode gaps, hence the spark generates. Centre electrode is the most essential part of the spark plug, as fuel economy and engine proficiency is based upon that.

The concept of spark plug has revolutionized the automotive industry by lowering the emission, resolving the cold starting problems while boosting the performance of the vehicles. Advanced spark plug improves cold starting and generates efficient combustion which in turn increases the performance of the vehicle. Factors such as upcoming advanced spark plugs to improve the performance and ignitability along with increasing product awareness among consumers is anticipated to fuel the development of spark plug market in coming years.
