Clutch is a mechanical device that is used for engagement and disengagement of transmission from the driving shaft to the driven shaft. The primary function of the clutch is to transmit the torque from the engine side to the drivetrain. The clutch operates quietly and mitigates the drive-related vibration during its operation. Several friction materials are utilized to manufacture a clutch in order to ensure smooth engagement of gears, offer resistance, and providing strength. Organic friction materials are commonly used as friction material for clutch facing, as they offer a perfect combination of smooth engagement, wear resistance, and cost-effectiveness, as compared to others friction materials.

Dual clutch transmission and automated manual transmission are gaining popularity among car manufacturers as these systems offer all the convenience of the conventional automatic transmission, but at a lower price and without hampering fuel efficiency. These factors are likely to drive the demand for automotive clutch considerably during the forecast period.

Increase in demand for SUVs, crossovers, compact SUVs, and premium cars across the globe, especially in countries in Asia is a primary factor that is estimated to drive the clutch market during the forecast period. Increase in industrialization, which is boosting the logistics industry, expansion of the IT industry, especially in metropolitan areas, increased population, and migration toward urban areas for better job opportunities, thereby augmenting daily commutation are all driving the production of commercial vehicles. Heavy commercial vehicles have been witnessing the adoption of automatic transmission owing to several advantages such as fuel economy and easier driving training for drivers.
