Start-stop technology automatically shuts and restarts the vehicle internal combustion engine for cutting down the idle time of the engine. Moreover, the technology is beneficial in reducing in reducing the consumption of fuel and emissions. The development in start-stop technology market is because of the nonstop development in performance of the vehicles and levels of fuel efficiency.

The key factors supporting the growth of the industry is the rising requirement for fuel efficient vehicles and strict norms regarding emission control. Enhanced starter category is the largest; though, the integrated starter generator experienced the highest growth regarding both value and volume. Start-stop technology is more effective in plummeting industrial and automotive releases of poisonous gases like carbon monoxide and sulfur dioxide when compared to technologies.


Growing requirement for vehicles with improved fuel efficiency and lower emission will support the growth of this technology because of increasing augmentation in the fuel performance for petrol products. There is a growing requirement for vehicles with that have much better fuel efficiency and lower rate of emission. In more than a few countries, the government has forced stringent emission control norms for reducing the GHG emission from the automobiles.

The growth factors of the start-stop technology market are snowballing requirement for fuel efficient vehicles and strict control norms regarding emissions globally. In North America, EPA announced emission standards for light trucks and trucks. As per the EPA target, the allowable emission from a passenger car should not be over 225 grams per mile (g/mi). 

The permissible emission limits for cars is 143 g/mi for the year 2025 in North America. Moreover, the allowable combined fuel economy for trucks and cars was 35.5 miles per gallon (mpg) for the 2016, which will surge up to 54.5 mpg by 2025.

As per the government regulation in Europe, the usual emission level from novel cars reduced by 160 g/km throughout 2006 - 2012. The regulation wanted to reduce the levels of emissions from new cars to 95 g/km by 2020. This kind of stringent regulations have brought about in snowballing usage of start-stop technology by vehicle manufacturers.
