Increasing demand for parallel precision gearboxes in the automotive sector
The precision gearbox machinery market witnessing prominent growth as parallel gearboxes provide high dependability and a reduced Mean Time To Repair (MTTR). They are preferred due to their low component count and easy maintenance. Advancements in automobile technology and electronics have resulted in efficient & accurate automatic gearboxes in modern automobiles. The demand for high-end vehicles with automatic torque converter precision gearboxes is rising. New car models typically have 7 to 10 gears that enable engines to run efficiently at high speeds and reduce fuel usage.
The expanding usage of material handling equipment in the e-commerce sector
E-commerce companies are adopting digital technologies in their facilities by using advanced material handling equipment, such as Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV). Precision gearboxes offer compactness, durability, high dependability, long life, and installation flexibility. This will encourage automotive manufacturers to introduce new vehicles with advanced transmission systems using precision gearbox machinery.
Increasing introduction of advanced automobiles in Europe
Various automobile companies in Germany including Audi AG, BMW AG, Mercedes, Porsche AG, and Volkswagen are focusing on R&D activities to introduce new vehicles. They are designing premium & electric vehicles based on advanced transmission systems, stimulating the precision gearbox machinery market expansion. For instance, in September 2021, Mercedes-Benz launched various electric cars including a G-Class SUV model and its first AMG-branded high-performance EV, a sedan. It incorporates two-speed gears for on & off-road driving to improve the driving experience. Such initiatives encourage OEMs to develop innovative technologies for producing precision gearboxes that will be utilized in the upcoming automobile models.
