Increase in Global Vehicle Production to Drive Growth of the Global Automotive Transmission Systems Market


The global Automotive Transmission Systems Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 43.40 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.3% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Overview:
Automotive transmission systems are used to transfer power from the engine to the wheels and reduce engine power losses. The main types of automotive transmission systems are manual transmission, automatic transmission, automated manual transmission, continuously variable transmission, and dual clutch transmission. Automotive transmission systems Market enable vehicle manufacturers to offer driving comfort, optimized fuel efficiency, and superior performance to customers. They allow vehicles to travel at varied speeds while maintaining engine RPM within optimized range.

Market key trends:
One of the key trends in the automotive transmission systems market is the rising adoption of automated manual transmission systems. Automated manual transmission (AMT) offers better fuel efficiency than conventional automatic transmissions as it eliminates power losses associated with torque converters. AMT also provides convenience of automatic gear changes without requiring a clutch pedal. With increasing consumer preference for fuel-efficient vehicles, many automakers are introducing new vehicle models with AMT technology. For instance, in 2020, Maruti Suzuki launched updated versions of its popular models S-Presso, Celerio, and WagonR in India equipped with AMT for improved drivability and mileage.
