How Bosch sees the future of gasoline direct injection.

Bosch is Bullish on DI

.

Gasoline direct  injection implementation is already  on the rise and is  expected to gain even more energy going forward, thanks in large  part to global  demands for  improved fuel efficiency. Evidence: in 2012, Robert Bosch GmbH (bosch.com) supplied >5-million direct injection systems, and by 2015 the company plans on supplying 9-million systems.

There was considerable  deployment of direct injection in Europe in 2013, with some 40% of new cars equipped with the technology, according to  Dr. Rolf Bulander of Bosch,  who is responsible for powertrain technology, “In a few years’ time, a lot of the action will also be taking place in America and China.” Consider the fact that more than 90%  of the cars in the U.S. market are gasoline-powered, not  diesel fuel powered, so there  is a bigger deployment pool than in Europe (according to the European Automobile  Manufacturers Association, in 2013, 53.3% of new car registrations in Western Europe were for diesels).
