Dublin, Oct. 15, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/b26m7s/variable_valve) has announced the addition of the "Variable Valve Timing & Start-Stop Systems - Market Trends & Forecast to 2018" report to their offering.

The automotive industry has witnessed a substantial growth in the past few years, fuelled primarily by the BRIC nations. The technologies covered under the scope of this report are the fuel-efficient technologies used to enhance the performance and efficiency of a vehicle. VVT systems, while enhancing the fuel efficiency of a vehicle, also ensure that optimum power is delivered throughout the power-band of a vehicle. It eliminates the problem of low-power lag or top-end punch lag in conventional IC engines. The most common method of Variable Valve Timing application are the cam-phasing units which retard or advance the valve closing or opening time to gain performance and fuel efficiency. The start-stop system turns off the engine of a vehicle when it is at halt and restarts it once the driver re-engages the gas pedal. It helps improving the fuel economy and performance of the vehicle; also helps reduce the exhaust emission levels. These systems have gained preference among the automobile OEMs because of their low cost to benefit ratios.

Growing concerns towards fuel-efficiency and emission levels from vehicles have fuelled the demand for these technologies in regions like North-America and Europe, while the Asia-Pacific region is hugely driven by the consumer's preference for small cars which are value for money in terms of fuel efficiency and running costs. China has been the leading car producing country in the world for three years in the running and is expected to maintain its top position for the near future and hence is a market with great potential.

Due to the low cost of cam-phasing units, the system has found major acceptance in all the regions, but with the price gap between cam-phasing and (Variable Valve Actuation) VVA units decreasing, the demand for VVA systems is expected to outpace the demand for cam-phasing units in most regions. In start-stop systems market, enhanced starter technology looks comfortable with its market topping volumes and growth rate and is expected to hold almost 3/4th of the market in 2018.
