Automotive Differential System Market: Global Industry Analysis and Forecast (2021-2027) Future Potential

The Automotive Differential System Market is expected to reach US $23.20 billion by 2027, thanks to growth in the vehicle type segment. The report analyzes automotive differential system market dynamics by region, differential type, vehicle type, component type, driver type, and application.

Automotive Differential System Market Overview:

The automotive differential system market was valued at US $18.40 Bn. in 2020, and it is expected to reach US $23.20 Bn. by 2027 with a CAGR of 4.70% during the forecast period. An automotive differential system is a three-shaft gear train having the condition that one shaft's rotational speed is the average of the others' speeds or a fixed multiple of that average. The following automotive differential system description is for a classic rear-wheel-drive car or truck with an open or limited-slip differential and a bevel gear reduction gearset. Automotive Differential System Market To know about the Research Methodology:- Request Free Sample Report For instance, if the car is turning right, the primary ring gear may complete 10 full rotations. The left wheel will make more rotations during that period because it has a longer distance to travel, while the right wheel will make fewer rotations since it has a shorter distance to go. The sun gears (which drive the axle half-shafts) will rotate at different rates (one quicker, one slower) relative to the ring gear by, say, 2 complete revolutions each (4 full turns relative to each other), resulting in the left wheel turning 12 times and the right wheel turning 8. 2020 is considered a base year however 2020's numbers are on the real output of the companies in the market. Special attention is given to 2020 and the effect of lockdown on the demand and supply, and also the impact of lockdown for the next two years on the market. Some companies have done well in lockdown also and specific strategic analysis of those companies is done in the report.

Global Automotive Differential System Market Dynamics:

Demand for luxury and SUV vehicles is increasing: AWD and 4WD systems are most commonly found in luxury cars and SUVs. The demand for luxury sector automobiles and SUVs has increased as economic conditions have improved, industrialization has increased, and customers' living standards have improved across the globe. Also, strict safety rules in regions such as Europe and North America have enticed consumers to opt for AWD and 4WD systems, which provide better traction control and vehicle stability. The majority of SUVs are equipped with AWD or 4WD systems. SUV sales were overtaken by sedan series vehicles in the early 2000s. Given the advent of fuel-efficient AWD & 4WD systems, the demand for SUVs is increasing in this age of compact and fuel-efficient cars. The advent of new compact SUVs with improved technologies and the ability to drive in both traffic and off-road terrain has resulted in a surge in the SUV industry. Demand for SUVs in this class is expected to increase over the forecast period as per capita income rises, infrastructure improves, and customer preferences shift toward multi-utility vehicles (MUVs). As a result of this demand-driven increase, major automakers have begun to focus on developing customer-centric SUV, compact SUV, and MUV models. As a result, these variables may have an impact on the market for multi-wheel drive systems, which would drive demand for automobile differentials. Surging adoption of electric vehicles (EVs): The demand for electric vehicles has surged as governments around the world formulate more strict CO2 emission standards. Incentives and subsidies are also being offered by governments to stimulate the adoption of electric vehicles. Low or no registration fees, as well as exemptions from import tax, purchase tax, and road tax, are among the benefits. For example, the Norwegian government is exempting BEV (Battery Electric Vehicle) owners from paying value-added tax (VAT), which is over 25% of the vehicle's net price. Based on the battery capacity of BEVs and PHEVs, the Hamburg Municipal Corporation in Germany is proposing a tax adjustment of US $295 per kilowatt-hour of battery capacity, up to a maximum of US $8,830. Automakers are investing in electric car technologies as a result of the growing demand for electric automobiles. Several automakers have indicated plans to invest in the development and sale of new electric vehicles. Ford, for example, has committed to investing US $11 billion in electric vehicles by 2022. By 2022, the business expects to provide 40 electric vehicles, 16 of which will be electric and 24 of which will be plug-in hybrids. Volkswagen AG said in 2019 that it would invest US $66.3 billion over the next five years to produce more electric and hybrid vehicles, with plans to launch 75 fully electric and 60 hybrid models. MG Motor also plans to invest US $0.50 billion in the research, manufacturing, and selling of electric vehicles in India by 2020. Thus, increasing adoption and demand for electric vehicles is expected to hamper market growth during the forecast period. Technological advancements happening in the Automotive sector: Manufacturers are now focused on component electrification as a result of the introduction of vehicle electrification. Electronically restricted slip differentials are now being used to replace differentials (ELSD). With the help of an electronic control unit, the ELSD system distributes enough torque to each wheel. In the event of a slide, the technique is advantageous since the extra torque is sent to the wheels with the most traction. During high-speed curves and lane changes, the technology provides improved handling. Mitsubishi's Active Center Differential, for example, allows drivers to select several defaults for driving on the road, gravel, and snow. As vehicles become more electrified, component and system manufacturers respond to the sophisticated needs of OEMs such as ELSD. Designing electronic and electrical components that are fail-safe: Electronic components have been introduced into automobiles as a result of technological advancements to increase vehicle performance. Mechanical components in differentials are being replaced by electronic components such as electronically restricted slip differentials. However, there are many concerns associated with this technology, including thermal systems, the possibility of fire or component failure, and others, which must be carefully evaluated. Component electrification raises a slew of safety concerns, including electric system safety, functional system safety, and vehicle maintenance, operation, and training.

Global Automotive Differential System Market Segment Analysis:

Based on Differential Type, the automotive differential system market is segmented as, locking, open, ELSD, LSD, and torque vectoring. Thanks to increased outbound activities and the popularity of ATVs in the market, locking differential is the most dominant category in the industry, accounting for approximately 42% of the market share in 2020. ATVs are utilized on a variety of terrains and require a locking differential to operate with all four wheels on the ground. According to Eaton, the locking differential sector accounted for nearly US $4.52 billion in 2020 and is expected to lead the market with a CAGR of approximately 5.21% over the forecast period. Thanks to increasing demand for high torque producing cars and increased implementation of torque vectoring in SUV car manufacture, torque vectoring is the market's second most dominant category. Automotive Differential System Market 1 Based on Vehicle Type, the automotive differential system market is segmented as, passenger cars, commercial vehicles, and off-road vehicles. Off-road vehicles have the largest market share, accounting for nearly US $1.40 billion in revenue in 2020. System compatibility on off-roads for differential systems and high vehicle productivity are two factors contributing to the expansion of the off-road vehicle segment. Also, the growing demand for cost-cutting solutions in the automotive parts manufacturing industry is a major factor driving the expansion of the automotive differential system market. Commercial vehicles are the second dominating segment in the market with approximately 28% market share owing to increasing consumer preference towards SUVs and thereby increasing value addition for powertrains mechanism. Detailed information about all segments is covered in the MMR’s report.
