An automotive starter motor is a device which converts the electrical energy stored in the battery into mechanical energy in order to crank or start the engine. The starter motor delivers the mechanical energy necessary to rotate the crankshaft for a given number of cycles. When the crankshaft starts rotating, the engine begins the process of combustion. The starter is able to disengage once the engine begins to run on its own power.
Rising demand for vehicles in recent years is expected to drive the automotive starter motor market during the forecast period. The mergers and acquisitions of several key manufacturers of automotive starter motors are anticipated to further fuel the automotive starter motor market in the near future.
Increasing efforts being taken by vehicle manufacturers to develop advanced technologies such as integrated starter generator in order to abide by the rules and regulations concerning improvements in fuel efficiency by reducing fuel emissions are likely to hamper the automotive starter motor market during the forecast period. The integrated starter generator helps the vehicle to start and stop automatically. In the automatic start-stop function, the system switches off the combustion engine at zero load, that is when the vehicle is idling at a traffic light and automatically restarts when the gas pedal is pressed in less than one hundredth of a millisecond. This is anticipated to restrain the automotive starter motor market during the forecast period.

Based on source of power, the automotive starter motor market can be segmented into electric, pneumatic, and hydraulic. Based on the type of starter motor assembly, the electric starter motor segment is sub-segmented into direct drive and gear reduction. Electric starter motor is used in gasoline engine vehicles. While, diesel engine vehicles run either by means of a pneumatic starter motor or hydraulic starter motor. Pneumatic starters are operated by stored compressed air from a tank that is charged when the engine is running, and hydraulic starters can sometimes be manually charged. The electric starter motor segment is expected to dominate the automotive starter motor market during the forecast period owing to the increasing demand for gasoline engine vehicles in recent years.
Based on vehicle type, the automotive starter motor market can be classified into passenger vehicles and commercial vehicles. The passenger vehicles segment is expected to dominate the automotive starter motor market during the forecast period owing to the increasing production volumes of the passenger vehicles since the last few years.
Based on engine type, the automotive starter motor market can be segmented into diesel engine and gasoline engine. The basic difference between the starter motor of a diesel engine vehicle and that of a gasoline engine vehicle is that in a diesel engine vehicle, the starter motor compresses the piston, which results in spontaneous combustion. This requires more energy than simply lighting a spark plug, as is the case of gasoline engine vehicles. Thus, the gasoline engine segment is expected to expand at a significant growth rate during the forecast period.
Based on sales channel, the automotive starter motor market can be classified into OEM and aftermarket. The OEM segment is anticipated to expand at a significant growth rate during the forecast period owing to the fact that the starter motor does not require frequent replacement. The starter motor has to be replaced only when the pinion or other electrical parts of the motor get damaged due to excessive wear and tear. Cranking the engine for a long period of time can also overheat the bushes. If this occurs, the current is carried to the armature or the wiring in the starter, which can permanently damage the starter and can lead to the replacement of the starter motor.
Based on geographical region, the automotive starter motor market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. The automotive starter motor market in Asia Pacific is expected to expand at a significant growth rate during the forecast period, owing to the expansion of the automotive industry in the region and the strong presence of key automotive manufacturers in countries of Asia Pacific such as China, Japan, and South Korea.
Key players operating in the global automotive starter motor market include BorgWarner Inc., DENSO EUROPE, Continental AG, Valeo, Delphi Technologies, Mitsuba Corp., Cummins Inc., Bosch Auto Parts, Hitachi, Ltd., and Mitsubishi Electric Corporation.
