US Market Study on Automatic Transmission Research Methodologyrapid Growth Till 2018 – 2026

Automatic Transmission Market – Snapshot

The function of transmission is to transfer engine power to the differential, which in turn is transmitted to the wheels. Transmission incorporates the differential and axel, which cumulatively are known as transaxle, and is mostly installed in front wheel drive vehicles. Different types of automatic transmissions are utilized in modern cars. Modern cars mostly employ computer controls to engage gears according to the speed of the vehicle. Extensive utilization of computer controls and increased four speed to eight speed transmission gearbox enhances the efficiency of modern vehicles. Adoption of continuously variable transmission (CVT) and automated manual transmission (AMT) types is increasing significantly owing to the high demand for fuel-efficiency.

Comfort and ease of driving are key factors that are likely to increase the demand for automated manual transmission in commercial vehicles and hatchbacks. Furthermore, cost of automated manual transmission is low, as compared to those of other types of transmission. Consequently, the overall cost of the vehicle is highly competitive and hence, automated manual transmission is gaining popularity among vehicle manufacturers and consumers.

The global automatic transmission market has been segmented based on transmission type, vehicle, and region. In terms of transmission type, the global automatic transmission market has been classified into conventional automatic, automated manual transmission (AMT), continuously variable transmission (CVT) and others. Conventional automatic transmission is generally connected to the engine with the help of a hydraulic torque convertor, which generates maximum torque; however, it is unable to generate efficient revolution per minute, as compared to continuously variable transmission (CVT). Furthermore, optimum fuel efficiency offered by CVT along with stringent emission norms and demand for clean environment are likely to boost the demand for CVT during the forecast period. Incorporation of electronic sensors, pneumatics, and actuators in automated manual transmission enable smooth shifting of gears by using computers. Furthermore, availability of AMT at a competitive price, shifting of preference of commercial vehicle manufacturers toward AMT are expected to boost the demand for AMT during the forecast period.

Sales of passenger vehicles is increasing rapidly globally owing several factors such as increase in per capita income, rapid urbanization, and emerging economies. Passenger vehicles comprise different class of vehicles such as hatchbacks, sedans, and utility vehicles. Adoption of modern types of transmission is significant in passenger vehicles owing to the availability of most advanced transmission by major transmission manufacturers such as Allison transmission, ZF group, and BorgWarner. Demand for fuel-efficient passenger cars and stringent emission norms are prompting manufacturer to adopt automatic transmission in order to cater to the demand. Consequently, the passenger vehicle segment is anticipated to expand significantly during the forecast period. Driving comfort, technology improvement, and ease of driving are expected to drive the demand for automatic transmission in light commercial and heavy commercial vehicles.

Prominent regions considered for the analysis include North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. Regional level analysis has been conducted on the basis of vehicle production, technology adoption rate, GDP, presence of OEMs, and society demand. Asia Pacific is anticipated to hold a major share of the global market during the forecast period. Some countries in Asia Pacific witness low penetration of automatic transmission; however, the rate of adoption of latest technology is likely rise in these countries in the near future, which in turn is anticipated to drive the automatic transmission market in the region during the forecast period. Furthermore, rising adoption of premium vehicles in China, India, and Japan along with the presence of manufacturing plants of major transmission manufacturers are expected to boost the market during the forecast period. However, vehicles in North America mostly employ conventional automatic transmission and hence, North America held second position in terms of share of the global market.
