This report covers the impact of COVID-19 on this global market

According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Motorcycle Start-Stop System Market is accounted for $0.52 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $1.26 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 13.6% during the forecast period. A motorcycle start-stop system is an anti-idling technology based on the intelligent combination of engine, brake, and battery management, which stops the internal-combustion engine as soon as the vehicle halts in a traffic jam and restarts the engine once the vehicle starts moving. This system is very helpful in reducing the idling of motorcycles and unnecessary fuel consumption, which in turn, helps in extending the motorcycle life and its fuel efficiency. A motorcycle start-stop system is proven beneficial in the reduction of tailpipe emissions.

Market Dynamics:


Rise in hybridization of vehicles

The primary source of vehicle propulsion is the ICE, which is powered by fuels such as gasoline, diesel, ethanol, and Compressed Natural Gas (CNG). The need for emissions reduction, air quality improvement, and energy security drives the demand for hybrid vehicles. This hybridization of vehicles impacts the powertrain and the power supply system, as well as the vehicle control systems. Hybrid vehicles have the setup required for motorcycle start-stop systems. The setup includes a starter, alternator, battery, and electronic control unit (ECU).


Technology upgrades over time

VVT systems simply change the timing of the valve events without significantly altering the lift, which is the most basic function to achieve the engine controls. With the current trend of high-performance and fuel economy, the market is firmly on the growth path. However, with the fuel economy standards and emission regulations set to become even more stringent, this will become increasingly challenging for a conventional VVT system to deliver the required level of performance and economy on a stand-alone basis.


Increased inclusion of start-stop technology in vehicles

Engine start-stop helps to achieve fuel economy standards in conventional or hybrid-electric vehicles. The rise in hybrid vehicles production, government incentives for promoting the purchase of hybrid vehicles, and the increasing adoption of hybrid vehicles have boosted the demand for start-stop systems. OEMs are now focusing on adopting ultracapacitors for engine start-stop. For example, Continental Automotive Systems’ Maxwell Technologies delivered the voltage stabilization system (VSS) as a standard feature in 2016 Cadillac ATS, CTS sedans, and ATS coupes (excluding the ATS-V, CTS-V, and CT6 models). In 2015, General Motors became the first North American automotive OEM to integrate the Continental ultracapacitor-based VSS in car models with a start-stop function.


High maintenance cost

High maintenance cost is the major challenge faced by the users of motorcycle start-stop systems. These systems are part of an engine’s essential components that require adequate lubrication and proper maintenance. The start-stop system also utilizes a lot of vehicle battery power for engine ignition and to power the starter motor. This drains the battery several dozen times a day, which increases the need for the maintenance of the system and batteries. Also, motorcycle start-stop systems have a very high shelf life and are less prone to a replacement, unless factors such as adulterated fuel or those related to irregular maintenance of the vehicle come into play. This affects the aftermarket for these systems and restricts the market only to OEMs.

The premium commuter motorcycles segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The premium commuter motorcycles segment is growing at the highest CAGR in the market during the forecast period due to the changing market dynamics and improvements in motorcycle technologies and improving economic conditions in developing countries.

The commuter motorcycles segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The commuter motorcycles segment is expected to be the largest share in the market. Consequently, with the increase in the number of commuter bikes fitted with motorcycle start-stop systems, the market will experience steady growth over the next few years.

Region with highest share:

North America is projected to hold the largest share in the market due to the rapid urbanization, and shifting needs of customers around the region, and motorcycle OEMs providing different features with the motorcycles in North America have attributed the need for installing motorcycle start-stop system. Mainly in the U.S., the motorcycle OEMs have been constantly involved in the innovation of new electronic technology for motorcycles whose utilization has greatly helped in trimming down fuel consumption and easing the riding of the commuters.

Region with highest CAGR:

The Asia Pacific is projected to have the highest CAGR in the market. India is growing at a very high pace due to an increased preference for diesel-powered vehicles, which has resulted in the demand for a VVT system for diesel engines in the country. In addition, improving socio-economic conditions in Asian countries such as India and Indonesia have resulted in the growth of premium segment passenger cars.

Key players in the market:

Some of the key players profiled in the Motorcycle Start-Stop System Market include Shindengen Electric Manufacturing Co. Ltd., Hero Motocorp Ltd., Honda Motor Co. Ltd., Robert Bosch GmbH, Yamaha Motor Co. Ltd., SKF Evolution, Voyomotive LLC, Perkins Engines Company, Denso Corporation, and TE Connectivity.

Key developments:

In August 2018: Perkins launched new 4006 electronic diesel engine developed for the Indian power generation market. The 4006 electronic engine delivers performance in a 6-cylinder, 23-litre configuration and gives users a number of significant advantages over competitive alternatives at 750 kVA prime node.

In August 2016: Yamaha launched new start-stop system-equipped Janus scooter in Vietnam. It offers both a powerful riding experience as well as economy and environmental performance, all packaged in a lightweight body design
