The global spark and glow plug market is projected to reach USD 8.56 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 8.2% during the forecast period. Spark plugs and glow plugs are used in ignition systems of gasoline engines and diesel engines, respectively. Spark plugs transmit electric current from the ignition system to the combustion chamber to ignite the fuel-air mixture using an electric spark. Glow plugs are used in diesel engines to increase the temperature of the air inside gas chambers enough to combust the diesel spontaneously.

Spark plugs are expected to witness the highest demand during the forecast period due to the increase in sales of passenger vehicles that use gasoline. Moreover, the popularity of natural gas-based vehicles is expected to fuel the demand for spark plugs. The market for spark plug & glow plug is expected to grow due to the increasing popularity of diesel engine vehicles worldwide. Moreover, in cold regions, glow plugs are preferred, as they reduce vibrations, noise, and smoke emissions in diesel engines to ensure improved driving in cold weather.
