Consumers are increasingly interested in vehicle specifications & on-road performance, which are becoming increasingly important to manufacturers to keep their vehicles interesting. Pushed by consumer demand coupled with a reduction in the cost of technology, the industry is witnessing an increasing penetration from sports cars to passenger vehicles.

COVID-19 had a devastating impact on the dual clutch transmission (DCT) market owing to a massive dip in commercial activities and retail spending. The contagious spread of the disease has mandated countries across the globe to formulate new rules and regulations, resulting in strict countrywide lockdown and the formation of micro-containment zones to stop the virus from spreading. Suspending economic activities was the earliest move taken by several governments to reduce the risk of virus spread, resulting in a massive fall in automobile sales followed by a dip in consumer confidence.

Many consumers have also delayed their automotive purchase, and some canceled their existing orders owing to changing proprieties to essential buying. With the establishment of government SOPs and guidelines, trade & travel are expected to resume in a limited capacity, providing a positive outlook for the automobile sector.

Dual Clutch Transmission Market Analysis

Dry clutch segment is set to hold more than 80% of dual clutch transmission market revenue share by 2027. Increasing popularity in passenger vehicles is boosting the market growth in terms of volume. The system is superior in terms of providing fuel efficiency and strikes an ideal balance of performance & efficiency, which is due to the absence of hydraulic equipment that is present in its wet counterpart.

The passenger cars segment is anticipated to generate USD 40 billion in revenue by 2027. These vehicles contribute to the majority of retail four-wheeler automotive sales, as these transmission systems are increasingly incorporated into passenger vehicles as technology becomes increasingly commercialized and widely available. The increasing inclination of consumers toward automatic transmission solutions is boosting the market demand.
