Market dynamics


Increased demand for automatic automotive transmission system

Automotive transmission system is used to increase the comfort level of vehicles for smooth and easy driving. Due to the increase in road traffic, the number of road accidents has increased over time. This placed a strong emphasis on the installation of automotive transmission systems in vehicles. Major market players have started using electric motors in vehicles to increase the efficiency of automobiles. So, increasing demand for automatic automotive transmission systems is driving the growth of the market during the forecast period.


Growing adoption of electric vehicles

The auto industry is shifting from traditional gasoline vehicles to electric vehicles all over the world. Compared to traditional fuels burning in internal combustion (IC) engines, an electric vehicle does not require gears because the electric motor generates more force at zero revolutions per minute (RPM). The electric motor generates a magnetic field which rotates the motor, which in turn moves the steering wheel of the electric vehicle. Accordingly, the clutch mechanism may not be necessary in an electric vehicle. Thus, increasing adoption of electric vehicles restricts the growth of automotive transmission market during the forecast period.


Growing adoption of automatic manual transmission (AMT) systems in commercial vehicles

Growing urbanization, industrialization and improved road infrastructure are paving the way for the growth of logistics activities on a global scale. In addition, the rise of commercial vehicles is fueled by developments in the information technology (IT) sector and industries such as mining and construction. The automatic manual transmission system (AMT) can be combined with the dual clutch transmission system (DCT) in commercial vehicles. Thus, increasing adoption of automatic manual transmission (AMT) system in commercial vehicles will create lucrative opportunities for automotive transmission market growth during the forecast period.


Economic downturn

Recession is another term for economic downturn. All sectors of activity are affected by the recession. Businesses suffer massive losses during this time. Companies are laying off employees and workers in order to recoup losses or reduce costs. The market is suffering. The purchasing power of consumers is diminishing. To reduce costs, daily operations have been discontinued. The economic downturn is having an impact on developing and underdeveloped countries. Due to the economic downturn in various countries, the expansion of the automotive transmission market faces significant challenges.
