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.
