Automotive Transmission Market Size

Automotive Transmission Market size valued at over USD 236.4 billion in 2019 and is estimated to exhibit around 4.3% CAGR from 2020 to 2026. The transmission system provides a smooth and comfortable drive by transmitting the optimal power from the engine to wheels through the gearbox. As it is used in every vehicle, automotive sector growth is directly proportional to the automotive transmission industry growth. Growing automotive production across the globe is anticipated to boost the transmission system demand.

The automotive industry has been experiencing growth in demand from past several years on account of increasing urbanization and disposable income in emerging economies such as India, Bangladesh, Vietnam, etc. However, the recent outbreak of COVID-19 will hamper the automotive transmission market growth to some extent. Lockdowns across major economies resulted into the closure of manufacturing facilities and disruption in automotive parts export and import.

Increasing preference for private vehicles due to COVID-19 will accelerate the passenger vehicle demand. Instead of travelling in crowded public transport, people are preferring to buy private vehicles to travel due to safety concerns. Moreover, increasing living standards will have a positive impact on the passenger vehicle demand.

5 to 6 gears speed transmission segment accounted for over 30% share in 2019 and is forecast to register 4.4% CAGR between 2020 and 2026. Many cars in Europe and North America, which previously had less than five gears now have 5 to 6 gears. Manufacturers are opting for more speed transmissions/gears owing to fuel economy and performance. Due to increasing environmental regulations, automobile companies are under constant pressure to improve their corporate average fuel economy numbers, greenhouse gas, and carbon numbers, while consumers are demanding better performance.

The automotive transmission market is traditionally dominated by OEMs as vehicle owners rarely replace the transmission system. But now many people are preferring to use old vehicles instead of buying new ones due to cash constrains and some due to attachment they have with the vehicle. The after-market share of automotive transmission crossed USD 4 billion in 2019 and is poised to witness 3.5% growth rate up to 2026.
