Automotive Transmission System Market to Nearly Double as Higher Emphasis on Vehicle Safety and Performance Catapults Growth

NEW YORK, Oct. 28, 2021 -- Fact.MR – A Market Research and Competitive Intelligence Provider: Demand for automotive transmission system market is forecast to exceed US$ 38 Bn by the end of 2021, estimates Fact.MR. Rapid production and sales of vehicles across the world are expected to result in burgeoning sales of automotive transmission systems.

Fact.MR estimates the demand for automotive transmission system to increase at 6.3% CAGR between 2021 and 2031, with market valuation reaching around US$ 70.2 Bn by the end of 2031.

According to the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA), global vehicle production reached over 40 million in 2021 (January- Jun). Hence, increase in the vehicle production will create huge demand for automotive transmission systems.

Automotive transmission system is the most important component of a vehicle, which provides a smooth and comfortable drive by transmitting the optimal power from engine to wheels through gear box. The transmission varies the torque, speed, and the direction by changing the transmission ratios and enables the vehicle to start with a high torque.

Over the last two decades, there has been tremendous progress in transmission technologies. Automotive transmission space will continue to witness an increase in the number of gears and variation in ratios for improving transfer of power to the wheels from the engine.

Also, manufacturers are continuously innovating their products to comply with the stringent emission control regulations and improve the consumer experience. With the rising shift towards electric and hybrid vehicles, electrification of transmission systems is expected to gain pace.

Availability of various transmission models such as automatic transmission (AT), continuously variable transmission (CVT), and dual clutch transmission (DCT) is positively impacting the market growth.

As per Fact.MR, manual automotive transmission systems will continue to remain the dominant category, accounting for over half market revenue throughout the forecast period. Increasing ownership of manual transmission automobile as they are more fuel efficient and incur less maintenance costs, will stimulate the segment growth.

Regionally, Asia will continue to dominate the automotive transmission system with a healthy market share. Growth in the region is attributed to the flourishing automotive industry, presence of key market players, and increasing preference for smooth driving experience by consumers.

"Imminent shift to electrification, new developments, and design possibilities are likely to bring in a slew of innovations specific to automotive transmission systems. Manufacturers are leveraging modern technologies to reduce weight of the automotive transmission systems in order to improve fuel efficiency. This is expected to generate lucrative revenues for market players," says a Fact.MR analyst.
