Market trend: advances in powertrain with higher number of gears in transmissions
The main purpose of an automotive transmission is to provide power to the vehicles. The powertrain involves the transmission, engine, and the drivetrain of an automobile. Due to rapid technological advances, the mechanical components in the transmission systems have been replaced with electronic components, which increase the overall efficiency of the transmission systems.
“Such technologies offer improved fuel efficiency and help in major reduction of carbon dioxide emissions. Vehicle manufacturers are equipping the light-duty commercial vehicles and SUVs with nine-speed automatic transmission, which will increase fuel efficiency and sustain compliance with fuel efficiency standards,” says Amey Vikram, a lead analyst at Technavio for automotive components research.
Market challenge: high cost of clutch repair and maintenance
Automotive transmission systems and clutch systems are responsible for approximately 20% of the total vehicle cost. The clutch is one of the important components of the vehicle. It is nearly impossible to drive once the clutch stops working properly. The cost of transmission and clutch repair or replacement depends on the type and extent of repairs done by the mechanic. It also depends on the model of the vehicle. Along with the added labor cost, the high cost of replacement of commercial vehicle clutches is hampering the growth of the global commercial vehicle clutch market.
