Report ID: GMI1223
X-by-Wire Systems Market size is expected to witness a healthy growth rate over the coming years. Rising demand for better fuel efficiency, enhancements in automotive electronics, increased safety, and requirement to meet the regulatory compliances will fuel the overall industry demand.
The utilization of these technologies makes the vehicle lighter by reducing the overall weight of mechanical components, boosting the overall efficiency and reducing emissions. Moreover, the usage of motors, actuators, and sensors helps the driver to provide a precise, quick, and accurate response, which will enhance the overall vehicle performance. These factors will favor the X-by-wire systems market share over the forecast timeframe.
Rising concerns regarding emission levels and fuel economy will draw huge investments among automotive industry participants. Increasing regulatory amendments to reduce environmental impacts will positively influence the overall X-by-wire systems market growth from 2016 to 2024. The technology is used in electro-mechanical systems, which includes human-machine interfaces such as pedals and steering fuel emulators.
Increasing utilization of these systems is expected to eradicate conventional mechanical components in vehicles, such as steering column, belts, intermediate shafts, vacuum servos, master cylinders, and servos, fueling the industry growth over the forecast period.
The industry is characterized by the ongoing R&D and related component developments for better consumer satisfaction. The requirement of heavy investments for such activities will present a considerable challenge to the X-by-wire market players. Lack of concern for fuel-effectiveness in various emerging economies and ineffective fuel-efficiency standards in developed countries will challenge the industry growth through 2024.
Next-generation vehicles utilize the technologies, which include CAN (Controller Area Network) and LIN (Local Interconnect Network) for transmitting and receiving the vehicle diagnostic information. X-by-wire systems require privacy-centric data bus with higher bandwidth and inherent tolerance for any defects. Architectures, such as FlexRay and Time-Triggered Protocol (TTP), are increasingly adopted by automakers, which present potential growth avenues over the forecast timeframe. TTP ensures proper transmission of important messages on the data bus, increasing the importance of these technologies. The integration of next-generation semiconductors and the intelligence transferred on data buses will provide a significant development platform for X-by-wire systems market participants over the coming years.
By system, the industry is segmented into brake-by-wire, park-by-wire, steer-by-wire, shift-by-wire, suspension-by-wire, and throttle-by-wire. Shift-by-wire system is expected to witness significant gains over the forecast timeline owing to its increasing applications in gear shifting, which transmits signals to change the gear. Throttle-by-wire segment is also expected to hold a significant market share owing to its applications in vehicles to adjust the valve settings by utilizing the throttle pedal position sensors.
Europe X-by-wire systems market size is dominating owing to the initial advent of these systems across the region. Asia Pacific is expected to display significant growth rates owing to rising purchasing power of the customer, urge of making the vehicle fuel-efficient, better living standards, and preference for enhanced privacy measures. Emerging countries that include Mexico, Brazil, and India are projected to register exponential growth rates owing to the increasing need for these technologies by automakers.
Industry participants in the X-by-wire systems market are SKF group, LORD Corporation, Danaher Motion, RLP Engineering, Continental AG, ZF TRW, TORC Technologies, Curtis Wright Corp., Citroen and Infineon Technologies. Rising demands for hybrid vehicles will present considerable growth opportunities for manufacturers owing to its lightness and advanced application characteristics.
High accuracy and precision in motion control technology are likely to present viable growth opportunities for X-by-wire systems market over the coming years. Industry players are increasingly involved in joint ventures, collaborations, and acquisitions as a part of key strategies to acquire a strong foothold in the business through advanced product developments. For instance, in January 2017, Continental AG and Nexteer Automotive announced a joint venture to capitalize on the growing opportunities through increased focus on R&D activities for the development of automated driving and motion control systems.
