Global Need for GDI Accelerates as Demand Grows for Greater Fuel Efficiency and Environmentally-Conscious Applications
Detroit, Mich. (April 10, 2018) – The global market for gasoline direct injection (GDI) fuel systems will reach $13 billion by 2026*, making it the fastest growing fuel system technology for the next decade.
Stanadyne, a fuel injection systems developer headquartered in Windsor, Connecticut with auto clients worldwide highlighted its recent GDI successes and design challenges during a white paper presentation at SAE International’s WCX World Congress Experience, April 10 in Detroit.
“New challenges in pump design continue to emerge as engines become smaller and more powerful in response to fuel economy and regulatory trends,” said Stanadyne President and Chief Technology Officer Dr. John Pinson during his presentation, Advances in Gasoline Direct Injection Fuel Pump Technologies. “The demand for gasoline direct injection (GDI) systems is growing around the globe as manufacturers push for fuel efficiency, performance, and cost-effective regulatory compliance. GDI system design poses unique challenges to achieve these benefits with cost-effective, quiet and flexible product designs.”
Stanadyne produces customized and right-sized GDI pumps with flexible packaging for reduced mass and a broad operating pressure range. Stanadyne’s GDI pumps also feature QuietTech™, a patented control valve technology for quiet pump operation.
“GDI fuel systems are at the heart of the modern automotive engine,” says Dr. Pinson. “At the heart of our approach is providing breakthrough technology that is optimized for the application.”
Stanadyne has manufacturing facilities in the U.S. Italy, India, China and the UAE, with more than one million GDI pumps produced each year.
