Regulation: Criteria emissions, fuel economy, fuel availability and affordability, fuel chemistry

Technology: The report is a guide to systematic improvements in gasoline engines, including the latest improvements in boost, variable displacement technology such as Active Fuel Management (GM), ACC (Mercedes-Benz) or VCM (Honda), advanced gasoline turbocharged direct injection (such as Ford's GTDi or Daimler's BlueDIRECT), Valve-event Modulation (VeM) and valve timing. The report also explores the innovations made possible through new engine architectures.

Strategic analysis of gasoline SI engine component suppliers: Benteler Automotive, BorgWarner, Bosch, Continental AG, Delphi, Denso International, Eaton, Federal Mogul, Honeywell, Kolbenschmidt Pierburg AG, Linamar, Mahle, Mitsubishi Electric Corp, Nemak, NGK, Schaeffler AG and Valeo are all covered

Future trends and predictions - regulation and fuel price volatility, regional preferences, technical trade-offs between emissons and fuel economy, how will China influence developements, the role of electrification and other technologies

Industry sees combustion technology improvements as critical

In January 2016 Autelligence surveyed several hundred industry executives on the significance of future automotive powertrain upgrades. 85% of respondents rated engine powertrain improvements as "important" or "very important" to meet future fuel economy regulations. Combustion technologies were rated far ahead of alternative approaches such as electrification or lightweighting.
